What reg is up for offer? You've never specified.


Good point, you may be able to just get the DIN fitting and convert the reg too.

If you think that is a run on sentence you should have a conversation with me sometime haha! But yeah I was eventually gonna look into adapters if nobody was interested in swapping, just figured I would see if myself and another could make a quick swap and walk away smiling in the end first. Plus having a full DIN 1st stage would be easier and quicker to pop on and off the tank compared to having to dig out a allan wrench and trying to pop it in and out when ever I need to use it you know... Also I think its a deep thread but I have to double check. Im in Magnolia so i am a ways from the Quah otherwise I would gladly take you up and picking up the parts you offered, looks like I will be ordeing something tho instead as its a bit of a drive from here, thank you tho for being so gracious.

Wow - that's one hell of a run-on sentence :notworthy:

If you have a DIN tank and a yoke 1st stage then the DIN plug that Dave suggested will work. I have a bunch of them and if you're near Issaquah let me know and I'll give you one.

If it's a 300 bar DIN tank (deep female thread) then you'll need a DIN first stage. Converting a yoke reg to DIN is a kit that is specific to the regulator that you own.

If you have a DIN first stage and a yoke valve you can get a din to yoke converter- It will probably cost you ~$25. If the first stage you have is a scubapro MK25/MK20 I have old yoke parts you can have if you want to convert it back from DIN

Just buy a $4 din plug to connect a yolk reg.
