    I noticed that the MR42 regulator is no longer listed on the Mares or other retail web sites. Has this been discontinued? And, if yes, why, or has it been replaced with a new model? I don't have a local Mares LDS or I would have asked them.

    The MR42 has been discontinued. Mares is streamlining the first stage line, and the MR22 is very similar in features to the MR42. There were no problems with the unit, but it did use a unique HP valve assembly. The remaining diaphragm designs all use the same HP valve parts.

    Parts will be available for a long time. I actually own the MR42's predecessor, the V42. It utilized the SCS system (Spherical Core Seal). It is an excellent regulator, especially paired with the Proton Metal second stage.
