Disco filling problem

When I try to fill my Discovery from the air tank it only fills to about 1200 lbs then stops. Never had this problem in years of owning the gun. Tried two different tanks. Any ideas on how to fix would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Never get in a hurry, it only slows you down.

Ensure the gun is empty, remove gauge...

...hook gauge up to a female foster fitting, apply pressure.

I have a spare. You can have it....

Just to be the one who asks the obvious stupid question...

...are you sure there's more than 1200psi in the tank you're filling from?

Thanks for indulging the dumb question. Then it certainly sounds like...

...the suggestions to replace the gauge are on the money. I've had good luck with the McMaster-Carr 9767T21 series.
