Default Fitting Expert Needed: Perlick Sample Valve

I bought a bunch of these nice Perlick Sample Valves from a friend and was hoping to use of of them as a valve for a mash tun (because of how small it is) on a cooler conversion. It turns out that it has some strange collared male threaded fitting on the valve.

Is this a proprietary type fitting and I would only be able to use Perlick's branded coupler for it?

Here are some pictures:

Also, I have several of these and also might want to sell a few if anyone is interested...make an offer.

Looks like it may be possible to unscrew the fitting fom the valve. See if you can, and what type of connection that is.

It won't unscrew its just a collar around what I would imagine is a flanged end. It just spins freely around it.

It almost looks like the beer side of a sanke coupler..



If that's the case, tail piece (with desired size barb) and a beer/hex nut should work.

Take it to HD and try it out. It almost looks like a flare fitting. Next guess I'd try an auto parts store.
