I ordered one of these from Scubastore today (1/09/2020), so it will be interesting to see how long it takes. The price of 55 AUD was very close to that from Edosub at 34.90 euro, but shipping cost from Italy is much higher and is almost prohibitive.
Today received a notice via email indicating that item is shipped (3/09/2020). Now to see how long it takes to arrive here.
This gauge arrived today as I found the delivery guy had left it on the front doorstep. During the pandemic they don't stick around for a signature and are off on the next delivery. It came inside a vendor supplied cardboard shipping box which in turn was inside one of those grey plastic shipping bags. Plenty of bubble wrap in the box and marked as fragile, but often delivery guys don't know what that means.

The gauge itself is mounted on a card that would normally be hanging on a store display hook or rack.

Travel time just over 3 weeks which is pretty good.
Salvimar now offer this in-line gauge for other companies' models as shown in their 2021 catalog entry below. Although the name for their version is “Predathor”, it also fits the “Vintair” as they both use the same hand pump. I had not noticed it earlier, but the “Vintair” disappears from their catalog in 2020, the last entry for them was in 2019. Of course old stock can remain unsold and I bought a “Vintair Vuoto” (but not for me) from Scubastore in May this year before the shutter came down on selling these products to Australia.

As long time readers will know I never bothered with gauges, just pumping guns up to the maximum pressure that I could load with just a little left in reserve by bleeding a little bit out once I got there. However one advantage of a gauge is to see if your gun has lost pressure in the off-season or after a protracted period of non-use. Of course each time you measure gun pressure you let a small amount out, but if the gauge has a small dead space then it will not be much.
