    To light one of these stoves it would be a good idea to have a long match already lit & presented to the burner before you turn the control on.
    It is a good thing with a Coleman or it takes ages for the stove to burn cleanly.
    The BRS-12Ahas the mofification with the capilliary tube & blind plug. To remove the need to strip the stove down to clean the generator tube out.
    That capilliary tube must regulate fuel flow to some extent and make it less likely to flare if the tank has been fully pressurized.

    The BRS-29 looks like a developed BRS-12A which looks even more like the American original

    As of 2018 these stoves have become rather cheap.
    These stoves look like a Coleman 442 with a roarer burner.
    If these stoves do not have the screw-down valve in the base of the pump I would urge caution.
    That extra addition in the Coleman pump guards against fuel escaping if the check valve is weepy or fails suddenly. It also means that the stove is totally leak proof in transit.
    The Chinese stove also would require you to carry an alcohol bottle or fire paste to pre-heat the generator. It is a filthy business priming it with white gas.
