Hey gang,
I am looking to SELL these regs. Collected long enough. I have 4 that I will be diving as long as my C-card doesn't expire. I know you all want me to do two things: 1) GIVE them away and 2) post prices. Well, I won't do either. Reason: I collected these in good faith from many individuals over many years. I NEVER screwed anybody on price. What they wanted, I paid. If I thought it was a bit high, I just said thanks and went elsewhere. AS to not posting a price.; I would like to sell to a diver who will use them.

As to not posting prices; honestly I am not sure what to ask. The price can be determined on what a potential buyer would offer. If maybe we can strike a deal, great, if not, nothing ventured, nothing gained. I can be very nice to nice people. There is one guy I wouldn't sell one reg to for 5 figures. He is an ass, but then we "all can't get along".

Contact me, let's make a deal.

If I was working Allan, I'd be in touch! There's a couple of regs there I'd like to own. For anybody sitting on the fence.. Allan is a straight shooter and if you shoot him a reasonable offer he'll take care of you. I've bought a few things from him over the years and his stuff is always better than described. :D

I guess I’ll list a few on eBay. Not much interest in good, real vintage regs here.

Yes, you are right. True vintage diving had its day, but that got replaced due to numerous factors. I don’t want to elaborate but I can almost give a date of its death.

I have sold some of my collection. There are more to let go. I am sure the purchasers will agree that these regs are nice. Some have been described by collectors as some of the best they have seen. Contact me if you are interested. I have tried to keep a current list on the other dive board, check it out.

I was fortunate enough to acquire Allan’s Dacor R-4. It is in better condition than he described, which doesn’t surprise me one bit. Allan is not only a great diver, but a 100% honest individual.

Any one sitting on the fence on buying themselves an underwater Christmass present, I would like to also weigh in that Allan is a straight shooter. Can not see anyone being disappointed in anything he is connected with.
“A skin diver is a fellow who pulls on a pair of fancy swimming trunks, some rubber fins, a diving mask and canvas gloves, then fills his lungs with air and noses down into the ocean looking for two fisted trouble.”
