You can cross thread a common thread fitting into the reg the threads in the reg are soft just make sure you use teflon tape...And dont plan on switching back to the old line because it will no longer work.....I have done this on many of my guns to get by in a pinch,,,It does work!!!!! You will still be able to use the fittings themselves in something else if you ever upgrade,just take a small flathead screwdriver and clean out the threads on the fitting...
You will need to get a new bottomline though..There it no way to tighten down the fitting with it being inset the way it is.... Or you can just make it easy but costly and throw a cp or palmer or a boblong torpedo reg on it... Your chocie...This is just a cheaper fix for ya...

you can get the bob long regs really cheap these days... I did that when I had a TES, and then went for a used unimount setup. It was a lot more pricey than gimmicking something up- around 50 bucks to be exact, but it worked a heck of a lot better and more reliable than cross threading does. I hate the stock Dragun drop, because if you've got a big gauge, it won't fit without some gimmicking.

I agree with you totally on the drop.They didnt think very far ahead on that one!!! The stock gauge on most tanks wont even let you screw it in. STUPID!!!!! (Im not talking about you,Tainen ethier so dont pull your guns up just yet.)And the crossthreading is just a fast fix if you dont have the cash at the time.I have never had any leaks with doing that but I havent left it that way for very long ethier..
