Greetings fine gents,

I recently finish my Co2 build and would like to know what you guys think of it. There is also a slide of adding a Verner handle that gives you extra precision. The handle is well worth it and it makes adjusting the Co2 a breeze.

List of parts -
Concoa 312
Swagelok S metering valve
Swagelok Verner Handle
SMC Stainless steel DC solenoid valve
SS Swagelok fittings Elbow 1/4 - 1/8 NPT

Find a regulator for a cheap price, always make an offer to the seller. You will be surprise how low they can go.

looks great!! why do you need a second one?
I had some left over fittings and solenoid, so I made an offer on ebay for a regulator. I got it pretty cheap, it's in near mint condition.

You shouldn't use teflon tape, you're asking for little pieces to get clogged in your regulator or solenoid or needle valve :p
^ Thanks for the advice,

You an get the S series on ebay, search for swagelok or nupro, runs around 20-30 used, I had to special order mine.

But anyways, if you guys find a Parker HR series 3, I recommend that over the S. It's a very precise metering valve that retails for 200- 250 ish Stainless steel (there is also a waiting period) The metering valve was selling new on ebay for 21 bucks.

All the stock is sold, so you have to ask around for any extras.

It's the one pictured here,
