Argonaut Kraken Second Stage Info

Mon Aug 07, 2023 8:05 am

I was looking at the scubamuseum website and saw the following

http://www.thescubamuseum.com/Online%20 ... /552512433

I looked up the manufacturer based on the WMD stamp and a Taiwanese company that distributes them. Does anyone here have any information on this regulator?

WMD, classic! Didn't that have something to do with Iraq and Colon Powell???? Anywho, back to the question... looks like a Scubapro or HOG Chy-Nuh knock-off to me. :roll:

I handled some of the dealings between Bryan and WMD, including personally delivering a box of good cigars to the President of WMD to grease the wheels of commerce. Translation was provided by the guy's daughter (I think).

Here's a link to their catalog, 82 pages worth. I see a lot of what we in the tec world call "OMS" and a LOT of Scubapro-esque stuff. ;}

I have a couple of their modern center outlet manifolds I use with my DH. They make one in particular I am really waiting as it actually isolates tanks.
