Pressure gauge dial face rotating??

I replaced the 0-600 psi gauge on my Promaster that pegged out with a Bob Long gauge. I aired it up to check it and fired a few times. As I fired, the gauge face rotated counterclockwise so that now when there's no air on the gun the gauge shows ~200 psi instead of 0. Any fixes out there or am I just stuck with this and have to replace the gauge again so it shows 0?

When I saw this thread title, I thought to myself "this must be a Bob Long gauge". They are crap, for lack of a better word. The shop I frequent will actually replace them for free WHEN this happens (not a matter of if) and informs people of this when they buy them. Get a new gauge, they are not worth the hassle.

When I asked the local shop what they had and he replied "Bob Long", I had a bad feeling about it, but I needed one so I got it. I'll see what they can do in terms of a return or swap, otherwise I'll pick up an ASP or PPS logo'ed one. Thanks!
