Brass equivalent of this disconnect?
1 Attachment(s)

I have had no luck in finding a brass version of this stainless quick disconnect available at morebeer.com. I talked with the folks at McMaster and they can't help and I haven't found one at Grainger either.

I'll keep looking but if anyone else has an idea or two I'd appreciate a link.

Yep, I think you're right about how it seals. This is what the seals look like though. I doubt an o-ring would work. If I can't find a replacement, I can probably make this one work by just turning it around. This side is fine, so it should seal OK. The other side is really buggered up. I wish I knew how it happened so I can avoid it. If turning it around doesn't work, stuffing several o-rings in there may do the job.
