need a little more info about your whole co2 setup. i don't even really know the diff. regulators out there, but what is your whole setup, and what problems are you having? Get specific and I may have some suggestions.

I'm not able to regulate my CO2 pressure to between 10 and 20 psi.
I can't get it down below 38 psi...

Also, is the regulator supposed to be fully open when starting up a newly re-filled tank of CO2? And the needle valve too?

Thanks - in advance..

(I just ordered a new regulator..)

Not as i understand it. I made the settings on regulator and needle valve back 2 tanks ago, haven't changed the settings since. run it on 20-25psi.

Well, mine came with pretty good instructions on how to make the settings, and the company also answered a couple email questions I had.

Had to figure out where the dang thing leaked by myself though, that was hard.
