Answer: 
Yes, the ones recently manufactured are. They are literally labeled as lead-free now. I'm guessing it's because they changed the cartridge material from metal to plastic.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to Install No pronblems! I had a water hammer problem that arrestors didn't fix. Guy who owned the house before me had it repiped without installing a pressure regulator so I installed this one into my 1" main. I used Sharkbite push on fittings and it took 20 minutes to do the job. Turned the pressure down to 60 psi from 85 psi & no more hammer problems. If you use the Sharbite fittings be sure to go to their website to get the correct depth of the fitting before you start cutting your pipe. Yes I know the shutoffs should be before the regulator but there wasn't enough space for another shutoff without rerouting pipes. that being said I can easily take the Sharkbites off and reroute when I feel like it. Love those fittings! April 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Replacement for Wilkins BR4 I replaced the water pressure reducer valve on the water line to my house with this unit. This model, 70XLDU, replaces the Wilkins BR4 model that does not seem to be available any more. Without the union nuts installed the unit measures 4 inches from flange to flange. The union uses rubber gaskets just like the older BR4 model. The old unit was leaking from the spring cover. I can't speak to durability since I just installed but the unit seems well made and I expect years of service. May 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Purchased for parts, cartridge is now plastic My old Wilkins Pressure Reducing valve was failing, and it was probably 20-30 years old. It was not a double union unit (so I would have to cut it out) and in a very tight space, so I wanted to repair it instead of replace it. A repair kit is almost as expensive as a new unit and not carried in stores, so I decided to purchase a new unit to harvest it for parts. All the parts on the new unit fit right into my old unit with no issues. Be careful that you use another set of pliers to hold your unit in place as you torque parts on or off. Zurn-Wilkins actually has a video that shows you what to do. I literally replaced every part on my old unit except for the body that was soldered into place. Every piece fit perfectly with no issues or leaks. I highly recommend purchasing a new unit instead of a kit because if your bell housing has degraded (like mine was), a new unit will have a new bell housing where a kit will not. The only difference in parts was that the new cartridge is plastic instead of metal. This is probably due to the fact the unit is now lead-free. May 18, 2016
