Default regulator question for the pros

well, i am fromalabama and i thought that i would be able to get a new regulator and can't. therefore i have to get mine fixed. its an oceanic gamma 2 reg and i called the dive shop in mobile and they quoted me an outrageous price compared to the last time that i got it fixed there the year before. i really don't even like that dive shop and would like to get a few prices from people on here. if mbt reads this, could you send me a price per pm to let me know how much to service it.if it was comparable, i probably would mail it to you and let ya'll do it just because i despise the shop over here. of course i would pay for the shipping there and back. its a DIN valve with gamma two reg and oceanic octo.the gamma 2 free flows continuously bad!really, any dive shops are open to this, i have just heard so much about mbt.

I know MBT both sells and services Oceanic regs, but Chuck at MBT can service any regprovided they still make parts for it. He's been doing it for about 15 years. I don't know the price, but I'm headed to the shop this morning for a class and will get someone to give you some feedback.

MBT's regulator service is $55 plus parts - includes 1st stage, second stage, octo, and gauges.Parts for most Oceanic reg systemsrun about $30-35, so you'll spend around $80 or so total for a regular service. It'll be as close to brand new as we can get it when Chuck's done with it.

We need to know which 1st stage you've got. If you can identify it or send a pic that'll be helpful.

They do make parts for the dacor vyper regs. That was one of the first regs they put out after mares boughtout dacor. Basically every dacor reg prior to that parts are no longeravailable for.
