    It is brass. When you grind off the bolt snap attachment point, you'll see that.:D

    I have a similar one from Highland, never had any problems with it.

    Quick question though, I got a HP hose for it, but the connection for this to screw in looked like a flare type fitting. The gauge came with a spool. How would that work.
    Maybe I saw it incorrectly.

    Had one of these for a while. It was fine. Some won’t like the metal to metal connection, but if you’re just diving OW, should be fine.

    The spool goes between the gauge and the HP hose fitting. What is a "flare type fitting?"

    It was a type of fitting that was used to seal without the use of orings. Compression fitting I think is another term for it.
    When I go back home I'll have a look again.

    OK. That's not it. I can't post pictures (?) so HP hose+spool/w o-rings+gauge.

    Compression and flare fittings are two completely different things. Flare fittings are used primarily in propane and natural gas applications such as barbeque grills and gas dryers.
