Heads up Wika manometers and a warning posted on AA
Looks like the Chinese has been busy lately (as always) at OUR EXPENSE.
A bit worried after reading that and will be a lot more mindful about handling my PCPs of Chinese origin or fill it to LESS than the max recommended fill pressure.
Someone should copy it because knowing Brad, it will probably be deleted quick!
I have NEVER heard of ANY SELLER FROM CHINA selling GENUINE WIKA HPA GAUGES. My friend has been air lifted to the hospital because his WIKA Gauge blew up and lodged into his chest. There is a high probability that he will not survive the next 24 hours due to severe loss of blood. His wife showed the investigators the box that many of those gauges were just received from CHINA and he just installed one onto his FX IMPACT PCP rifle which was the last thing he did before it went BOOM!!! according to his wife there was BLOOD EVERYWHERE!!! He mentioned to me earlier before his accident he got a really good deal on WIKA gauges from a seller from China for less than $4.00 apiece in a bulk lot and were WIKA high pressure gauges and wanted to know if I knew anyone so he could make money selling them and I warned him they were probably counterfeit since they sell for $40.00 to $50.00 apiece on average and he mentioned he wanted to sell them for $20.00 to $25.00 apiece and start a business selling them and asked me if I wanted to put my money to invest and I declined to peddle counterfeit goods and obviously for good reason. BEWARE OF COUNTERFEIT CHINESE WIKA GAUGES IT MAY PUT YOUR LIFE OR YOUR LOVED ONE'S LIVES IN DANGER!!! They even look like the REAL WIKA GAUGES!!! BEWARE OF ANYTHING FROM CHINA THAT IS HIGH PRESSURE RELATED IS YOUR AND YOUR LOVED ONE'S LIVES WORTH IT?
That sounds very scary, and we all know how the Chinese have a habit of duplicating stuff for cheap.
I just posted a mention about this on AGN forum.
Be careful what you're buying, although it's hard to know these days.
I would rather pay full price for my HP air parts, than take a chance just to save a few bucks.
