    I bought a bunch of used gear, these were in the the bin of parts, but they look a bit different from what I can find online. Any ID help would be appreciated! (hope the image shows up!)

    On the top is (Probably) a MK5 with a different manufactures yoke screw or (possibly) a MK5 clone.
    On the bottom is a MK5 DIN

    The back of the top regulator is curved (I didn't get a picture)- where the scubapro all seem to be flat - so you probably have the clone part correct!

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    The top MK5 clone is most likely a Tekna, the round yoke screw is a clue.

    As part of collecting second stages, I have purchased a couple of complete Tekna sets with the same first stage as shown in your photo.

    A bit of digging confirms the clone is a Tekna.

    VintageDoubleHose has a PDF with blow up diagram and trouble shooting guide for the 2100 series, which includes the first stage.

    Good stuff! Lots of knowledge here, thanks.
     
  8. The Mk5 in DIN 'version' is very rare.

    I think I read that, somewhere here. Not sure what I will do with it, as it's not in the best condition (the knurled knob has seen channel lock pliers) - it also only fits 2 of the 6 tanks I purchased with the gear (5 steel and a LP14).
