Need help with Regulator

Hey everyone,

I just bought a new Ion on craigslist and it came with a reg. and tank already on it.

I don't know what type of regulator this is, but I do know the tank is a max flo 4500 PSI tank.

What I'm wondering is, how can I remove the tank from the regulator? If I even can. I appreciate the help!

That is the Max-Flo micro. Pretty good reg really. It is adjustable (The cap at the front), and compact with it's own on/off. If you really do need to take it off, I imagine that the blue drop forward has a pair of hex head screws (Grub screws) that you can loosen and get the reg off the drop, and then unscrew the hex head screws that go into the grip frame.

It's an old Smart Parts max-flow reg, I believe it's a 4500 PSI model.

Remove the reg and tank from the drop forward. To remove the tank from the reg, you'll need a vice and a strap wrench. Place something soft, but durable on the insides of the vice, like pine, just to avoid marring the reg. Wrap the strap wrench around the tank and VIOLA!
