    in what regards? on other guns or mags?

    the backs of classic mags? yes

    from classic to Emag/Xvalve/ReTro? no

    a standard aftermarket reg? yes?

    please elaborate on on your question so that people will know what you are talking about so that they can help you better.

    All modern regs are interchangeable. There were some older ones that weren't, but most should be past their lifespan or rapidly approaching it.

    any screw in tank regs are easily interchangeable. if you have a PE and want to switch to a Ninja, or something like that, then unscrew and screw.

    This, but also to add (which no-one else has brought up) it is possible to put a 3k reg on a 4500 tank- Don't do that, it's bad. Always make sure the tank matches the reg pressure, If you must mix and match in a pinch, never overfill your lowest rating, and never let someone who is not yourself fill that tank.

    Switch that. Ok to put 3k on a 4500 tank. Don't put a 4500 reg on a 3k rated tank.
