F8al - Thanks again for the help!! Much appreciated as always
Apreciate the info but took more than 18 lbs of torq I can vouch for this tank maybe a little more than a dab of loctite ob this one.

dont misunderstand this as a complaint. this is the one thing that i actually like better this piece be the hardest thing to take apart than anything else. A few years back a tank came off its reg at WAP in nor-cal poor lady died i dont want to be that guy.

Do you mind if I ask if the tank was purchased new by you or second hand? In my experience as an end user and reseller of Ninja I have not seen a Ninja tank have to have such force exerted on it to remove the reg. I am merely curious is all, please don't mistake my tone as confrontational or abrasive, I am simply asking a question. If it was a second hand tank or say a Crossfire tank with Ninja reg on it then that would make more sense, a new tank would perplex me a bit.

That's probably it in all honesty. A local guy bought a system from them and his was caked in loctite as well. Can't say I know why they'd do that, but it's certainly not necessary haha

Even tank manufacturers hire new people to screw in regs I probably just got the one hard one out of 100 like I said glad it was hard to take off than to put back on.

I wish i had a better answer for you BigBadGooz. Not sure what happened on your specific regulator but as long as you got it off, sounds like we're good to go Thanks for buying Ninja and let me know if you have any other questions.
