It looks like a decent regulator from the pics. Hopefully the quality lives up to the price. It was made in TEXAS, so it's bigger and better.

Just ordered this from jason ( I believe thats his name) and I can say that its a great looking primary. The gauges are actually labeled "keg Cowboy," so it shows me that the guy us serious about his stuff. Overall the quality of the parts is great and I would highly recommend the guy.

Cheers

My only complaint now that I have had the thing for a bit is that if you remove the barbed fitting that screws into the regulator it is epoxyed or glued to a threaded adapter with a nylon seal on it. I wanted to remove the barbed fitting and put a male quick disconnect on. This how ever make the valve useless.

I purchased my entire kegging kit from KegCowboy and have been very happy with it and their service!

Yeah if you do not want to add a Quick disconnect to the regulator its great but If you remove the double threaded adapter and use a 3/8's QD the valve will not work because there is a nylon seal that is on the adapter

the ones at micro dont have this adapter with the seal.


This makes it hard to use a QD you end up haveing to purchase a new valve

I don't plan on taking mine apart and so far it has worked great and was half the price of anything else I have seen. Do you think it would have worked OK if you left it together?
