Default Was this a good deal?...3 bodied secondary regulator

I just purchased this...kind of an impulse buy...what do yall think?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-Product-CO...21140456139%26

$84 + $11.24s&h = $95.24

Let me know if I made a mistake!
Thanks

I'd say it's an ok deal. This is a secondary regulator, so it can't be hooked up directly to a co2 tank. This could be hooked up to a primary regulator that is hooked up to the tank.

Thanks for the response.
I'm trying to get everything piece by piece...I just didn't know if this was a really good deal. I've been seeing a lot of these new from supplies $150-/+.
This seemed more commercial grade, but I couldn't find anything...and I didn't want to know I already messed up before I purchased my primary regulator....
Thanks again!

Does anyone else have any input or suggestions on my primary regulator to go with this?
Thanks!

They look like compressed air regs which are a lot cheaper and prone to leaking. Personally I stick with Taprite, Cornelius, or Norgren, you can get rebuild kits. Buy once and done.

Yes, they are Norgren compressed air regulators the lowest temp that they can operate at is -30 F. I spoke to Norgren online they DO NOT recommend using this for CO2 as flowing condensation could cause the seat to ice up and hold the it open and keep the pressure relief from opening. For Co2 they recommend the following R84-200-MNLA.

Use at your own risk, as for me I'll buy used and rebuild
