    Nice job on the 1st stage.....nicely fills the US MK19 gap.
    Only improvement I'd like to see would be getting rid of the pin spanner needed to disassemble.

    As for the new 2nd stage cover, I guess beauty is in the eye and all that....so no comment.
    I'm a warm water diver and really prefer the old traditional purge button, but if this soft purge holds up to rot better than others, I don't have an issue.

    The rotting purge covers were PU material, these are HD Silicone... they will hold up.

    The description on DRIS claims, "The D3 will utilize a replaceable hard HP seat, this will allow for better first stage performance, easier serviceability, and a longer regulator life span."

    What was the previously expected lifespan and what is this regulators' lifespan?
