Ok here is the gun build up so far. My dad actually came up with a perfect o-ring to fit between the Palmer and the Assault Block.

Now, my question. Where I have my gauge, what does that read? The PSI coming from the tank, or the pressure of the area between the Palmer and the valve? Cause I set it to 800ish PSI and it was fine. Then I swear when I put the tank back on it the next time it was down at like 400. So I turned it up and it went to like 900!! So I had to turn it down once again. Just want to make sure guys. Thanks!

the pressure after the reg on it's way to the valve.

correct. That's the psi that the reg's letting through. A gauge mounted before the reg would tell you how much psi is in the tank/line/system before it.

If you were considering changing the gauge, get an Ashcroft reg...I think they are one of the most accurate around...(but can be big and ugly)

Ok thanks guys! I just wanted to know. Well so far I like my Bob Long gauge, so we will see how it works.
