Just so you know my needle rests on the white line as far counter clockwise as you can go.

Well that and what redz reads explains it! Now I really can't wait to see what's the real reading cause these dye ones are NOT reliable. Thanks guys!

I deal with gauge calibration for living smaller gauges like the dye ones are given a tolerance of 3%

The bigger the gauge face the Lower the tolerance I think mine has a tolerance of .5 which is accurate ( this doesn't apply to digital gauges since they use pressure transducers inside which take a pressure an converts it to a electrical signal

Are you talking about digital gauges? Or the mini ones that come on tanks and reg testers?

Gauge accuracy is usually determined by the mid range reading. I gauge that maxes at 200psi will be most accurate around 100 psi. Gauges are classified by letters.

Grade A (1% middle half, 2% first and last quarters)
Grade B (2% middle half, 3% first and last quarters)
Grade C (3% middle half, 4% first and last quarters)
Grade D (5% Full Scale)

Ill have to see if mini gauges are actually classified.

Cool, I was wondering that because I'm almost got a 3000psi gauge just to have one that high. Good thing I went with 1k, its not like I have anything over that anyways.

Lol, you should have got a 200-260 if they had one. Unless you plan on testing other things with it.

So just change the gauge on the dye reg tester if you're not happy with it, right?

For my line of work ( military ) accuracy is determined by the face size of the Gauge

Well I added pics on the first page that show the HUGE difference in what the smaller DYE gauge reads compared to the new one I got today. It's so freaking night and day It's disgusting!

Great to see it worked out for you. Like I said before, the mini gauges are notoriously inaccurate. From gun to gun the pressures shouldn't be that different. Alot of people would be able to solve the issues their gun is having by having accurate measuring tools.

You should probably make a note of exactly which gauge you bought/price/etc so others can grab one if needed.
