    they works, but you must see the difrence betwen cywilian and military market, the main problem is that quality is depend by a batch of the goods, as sometimes they have a god quality materials sometimes not, so in 10 each 4my be god 4 crab and two brilliant, russians use to make a god spearguns, masks, and fins (vintage), but quality is wrealy depend by batch, factory, wheather,
    the same story like with gods from dealextreme :D

    I made a trade once for 4 Russian military rifle scopes. The optical quality was good and they were built like tanks, but they had some of the worst human engineering I have ever seen. They positioned the scope ridiculously high and offset to the left, the reticles on two of them were practically unusable and after about 40 shots the rubber eyepieces had a tendency to make you feel like you'd done a couple of rounds with Brock Lesnar.

    I've seen a number of other Soviet products that seemed to have similar design flaws. It's like they had a directive to avoid comfort and ergonomics when engineering all products.

    It was probably good then that during the war if you scraped off the CCCP you would find a white star.
    Or ironic.

    Holy crap!
    That looks just like an original Freedom Plate, one of my very first designs. I swear I've never seen a plate before like the one on those doubles, I just came up with the shape out of my head. What an eery coincidence. Maybe it's in our Polish blood.

    Well, since it might have been made behind the iron curtain, it's more like a comrad plate than a freedom plate. :D

    Guys,

    Take another look at this link:

    This regulator is a downstream single stage that is balanced!

    adriano210,

    What I was pointing out is that this is an outstanding design, a downstream single stage regulator which is balanced (is not influenced by the tank pressure). I know of only one possible other like design, but it is experimental right now, and not in production. Congratulations on a superb design.
