    For those of you who have not jumped on the DSR bandwagon, I offer a stainless steel BSS500-80-660-DK (SGS 500) Victor regulator. This is the sister of the famous and elusive SGT500. Boc had private labels made by Victor hence the BSS500 model number. It is really a Victor SGS500.

    I paid $80 for this unit plus shipping. I am asking $80 plus shipping. These are $800+ new, so you're paying less than 10% of the original cost.

    I can remove the CGA 660 and either add a:

    1. CHrome plated 3" CGA 320, which will be $22
    2. Stainless steel CGA 320 and filter, which will be $61

    I am charging my cost for the CGA components.

    I will also remove the post body and install a Swagelok stainless 1/4" hex long nipple (new) for free.

    Shipping will be $12 USPS

    Let me know. I am posting this on other sites. Perfect for a 5# CO2 tank size wise.

    Here are some pics to give you the idea how it will look. Now all you need to do is choose a CGA.

    brass 3" w/ filter: $10
    Chrome plated brass w/ filter $22
    Stainless with filter $61

    These are the "top of the Line" single stage regulators. Each one has a stainless steel diaphragm and a stainless steel body. Their 0 to 100 psi low pressure gauge is fine for our use. You rarely see these regulators for sale and Matt has the right parts to get you started on your post body kit.

    Bump for some excellent regulators.

    Thanks, Left C!
    The fact that this $800+ single stage regulator hasn't sold shows us the weight of the DSR movement! All good things.
    My burning question is: is the droop effect significant enough to make an impact? Sure on POS the droop effect can cause problems...how bout on a good quality piece of equipment?
    I was thinking about running this regulator on a flora only grow out tank, but I just don't have the time or energy to tell you the truth.
    Tom has had excellent results with victor single stages, so this is basically the king of victor single stages.
    It's a stainless body/stainless diaphram unit...basically the sister of the popular but expensive SGT500. In victor's nomenclature it's a SGS500. In Boc's it's a BSS500.

    I'm actually holding it for someone who wants to buy it locally.
    Yeah, it's a nice stainless beast.

    I guess it's off the market.
