Thanks @buddhasummer . I will be back to you at some point for kits, but I bought out the seller's stock of 6, so I am good for a while there. Parts I will have to evaluate once the others are in hand. Thank you for the service you provide to "US".

Cool, you know where to find me.

Enjoy your very cool regs, zero remorse, those MK11T are getting hard to find now.

Indeed they are, currently looking for one myself :(

If you are genuinely looking for one DM me and I'll see what I can do. I lose track of threads, not so much with DMs. Cheers.

It's almost too cheap not to buy hmmmm...

Why do you have no love for AL?
I like some of their regs, but when I was diving two Legends for a short period, I removed the ACD (Automatic Closure Device) and made no single dive with that tech, only the old type DIN.

It seemed to me a disaster waiting to happen, and then there was an incident where it did indeed close on a diver:


Supposedly because it was not torqued right. Maybe it is sorted now, but you know me, I like simple, idiotproof designs (wonder what that says about me). The old Titan is nice, and if the Micron has the ACD removed, I'd like it.

The second stage seems to have potential to fall apart when the spring fails that loads the central locking pin.

I bought one of those cheap Mikrons, it's the older non ACD version. I feel the same about ACD.

I bought the parts from a core supreme to seal it, yoke included hoping the 8mm hex non ACD yoke inlet fits the core yoke, no reason why not but won't know till I get the parts and try I guess.

I know the body is the same but not 100% on ACD yoke inlet vs non ACD yoke inlet.
