Help! Possible broken Ninja Reg?

So I bought this reg off another user maybe a month ago, haven't used it yet but put it on my tank to attached it to my marker so I can use the measurements to make a gun stand. While tightening and loosening the tank on the marker I noticed the bottom half of the reg would twist about an extra half rotation. It feels like the inside threading of the could be possibly stripped? Any help would be appreciated.

Yeah, I tightened the screws and it had no effect. I'll contact Ninja and see what they say. Thanks.

Is the tank empty?
Have you taken the bonnet (top half) off and inspect the internals? DO SO ONLY WHEN EMPTY.
Is it s regular or pro reg?

It does sound like you either have a pro reg and the rotational collar isn't tight or a regular reg that the set screws are either not tightened down or are stripped out and not holding the two parts together tight enough.

Yes the tank is completely empty.. And it's a pro reg, does that mean the whole reg needs to get replaced?

No, not at all. It sounds like the thin silver collar that allows the rotation of the fill nipple/gauge section isn't tightened down.

That ^^^ should get you squared away on how to set it up.

Ok thanks for the help, I think found out the problem. The bonnet set screws were overtightened and causing damage to the reg body underneath the threading. After loosening the screws some the reg seems to be staying in place. Can the damage to the body cause a leak in the reg?

Thanks! Could overtightening the bonnet set screws, which in turn caused damage to the reg body underneath the threading but on top of the rotational collar, cause a leak in the Asa?

I don't think so. There is really only 1 place where a reg would cause a leak in the ASA and that would be the o-ring at the top of the bonnet. An issue with the tank reg internally may cause leaking from between the reg parts or the 1.8K burst disk popping.

Sorry about all the questions, this is my first reg I ever had to make adjustments on or ever had a problem with. So that means that I'm good to go now? This is the only reg I have atm and would hate to show up to the field and figure out somethings wrong.
