I also need help identifying an Atomic 1st and 2nd stage. I didnt want to start a new thread, so hoping I can piggyback off this one. I know the pics are not great but hoping someone can help. Let me know if I need to start a new thread.

It is a first generation T1 or Ti2 (read my post on the second page on that history) so titanium first stage.

How to tell, satin finish to the reg. Thinner side walls on the yoke. Trim ring has square holes. Cap on top is donut shape.

The second stage without the purge cover will have a titanium inlet tube. Also a satin finish. The early purge cover disintegrated over time.

The second stage with the Z1 purge cover will have a zirconium inlet tube. Will have a yellowish finish.

What do with it? First stage, full overhaul, replace the piston with a monel piston and seal it. Put a typical cap on top. Second stage, full overhaul. Can replace any of the trim bits you want. As for purge covers. You can still get new Ti2 covers or get a T2x purge cover and new a ring. If the Z1 purge cover is trashed put a Z2 color kit on it.
