Chris, when I took the manufacturers repair class they told us to put vasoline on the valve insert to stop the chatter, this seemed to work for a while. The newer 1 st stages have a relief valve built in to to them, to go along with the one in the 2nd stage hose. The only other problem I have with this reg. is the repair parts. An overhaul kit cost me $32, which means it cost you $64 and then you add $34 for labor an overhaul cost $98.
If you have a Scubapro or and Atomic the parts are free.
There may have been a little fall-off with Scubapro, but that's nothing to what has happened to USD, Seaquest, Dacor, Mares, and Sherwood. These company's have had some real problems, and their product lines have suffered because of it.
By the way, can you buy air by mail-order.
