    This is a used core I've had sitting around the casa. I bought it recently off ebay for $60 plus $19 shipping.

    TESTED
    I'm asking $80 shipped. $60 in person.
    If you want the chrome plated cga 320, hex plug (replaces relief valve), and 1/4--->1/8 npt post body parts: $120 (swagelok stainless parts w/ leak test)

    Hi Matt,

    I just sent this link to some dude that is looking for a Victor. I hope it's OK.

    I have no way to test it currently. This is how I got it from the seller on ebay. no testing done.

    OK. I know he wants to buy my 253a but, that is not for sell anymore. That's a "keeper" as Left C will say.

    I honestly don't have any way to test this one. I don't have an extra cga 320 lying around currently.
    You're basically taking the same risk buying a used regulator on ebay (that's where I bought this one).
    Only one came in questionable condition. All that one needed was a new CGA 320 fitting.
    Only difference in this case is, I'll buy it back if something isn't right (provided you pay for shipping back to me and it gets here in the same shape as when I sent it out).

    I just tested the unit and it works perfectly well. Just for Barbarossa. ;)
    I found a crappy 1.5" cga 320 (used) in the garage, hooked up an old concoa on/off valve, and let it rip. The regulator did very well.
    see pics soon.

    I'm glad that someone bought it, Matt. It is a very sweet regulator. If the SGT500 was rated the best Victor two stage regulator for our use; the HPT500 would be next, IMO.

    The person got one heck of a good regulator.
    My favorites are:
    SGT500
    HPT500
    VTS253A-1993
    VTS253(A,B,or C)-320
    Model 7-0155

    in no particular order. ;)

    The VTS 450s, Matheson Model 8s are nice, too!
