I was just like you, didn't want to damaged anything, but BP was good about assuring me that If anything brakes they would send me new one so that's how I learned about that part.
Although BP makes the best fittings at least in my opinion, defects happens and there is no doubt no one makes perfect parts, but they are very good and quick and painless RMA.
I have at least $1500 or more of their fittings alone that are about 10-11 years old and so far super happy and surprisingly, as you can see they look like new and that's not even half of them, a lot of them are already installed in a new, big build I'm working on.
Btw. As I said, the valve seal wont wear out, mine are years old and still feel solid, you don't want anything flimsy either like some of the cheaper brands, but once you get past that pressure and you open and close few times it does get smoother and you will know this as well.
