    Very nice find, it seems to be a 150 as all Mark X/ BA models from '85 on are (the ones with orange Diaphragm are actually 152s).
    The BA 156, as I understand it, was produced only in '97 and '98 just before it's termination in '99 , it's recognizable by the CE Stamp on the top of the 2nd and a wider exhaust valve (Couv has one, I think).
    Anyway, I'm with Angelo, you should dive it, at least sometimes......

    With all these regs coming in, I am going to have to sell some of them or get a bigger storage bin. Vintage regs are addictive.

    I have a few Scubapro catalogs from the 90s, bought them with the intent to scan and share but never seem to find time to scan them. A '96 catalog also shows a CE Balanced Adjustable (No. 11-156-000) which is paired with MK20. Can't tell if the CE stamp is actually on the regulator from the photo.

    I wonder if the B/A was produced in both red and orange, or if orange is just faded red? The 90' and 92' catalogs label (No. 11-152-00) as red. I have held a couple BAs with orange exhaust cover, mouthpiece, and diaphragm but never seen a red aside from catalog pictures.

    There seems to be something in the water. I just got my second 156 yesterday.

    That's interesting.
    In my SP Catalog from '96 (German) the BA (paired with a MK20) has still the order number 11.150.000.
    I would have expected that the new CE 156 would show up first in Europe, not in the US.......
