Help with Oceanic regulator ID and approximate age please. I bought these on Craig’s List with some other items and want to sell them on eBay soon; however I’d like to state what model & approx age they are.
Omega II but does anyone know the date range this was produced?
Alpha ….same question.
2 first stages-I have no info.
Not sure what, if any, difference there is between an Omega 1 and 2 (satin chrome 1st stage?), but the one you have, I'd say, is early to mid 90's.
The Alpha is younger, Oceanic didn't make that big 1st stage for long, probably early 00's.
You may want to get it serviced and try it. My grandson has a side exhaust second stage that he really likes.
Well, perhaps if I needed another regulator. A hobby I have is rebuilding and refurbishing old ScubaPro regulators, and I already have more than I need. These came with other gear I wanted. They breathe well and appear to be very clean-here is a picture of the inside of the unbalanced piston. I considered keeping it for a pony, but I recently acquired another MK2 for that purpose.
Any ideas on the model names for the first stages?
