Default Source for Male NPT Full Port Ball Valve???

This is exactly what I'm looking for:
http://nbc.manufacturer.globalsources.com/si/6008820159344/pdtl/Ball-valve/1019175342/Male-to-Female-NPT-Thread-Full-Port-Ball-Valve.htm

Although, I don't want 1,000 of them. I can't seem to find a ball valve like this with the male NPT on the input side from a easy order retail source.

It seems this would be a much cleaner solution for those of us that are soldering in female couplers and welding spuds.

Why not just use a hex nipple, blichman sells them and its just as clean as the one in the pic. Cheers..

Well, I am using a nipple... I'm just trying to see if there is something a little better, and IMHO, having one less fitting in there would make it a bit better.

I'll stick with female threaded valves if that's all I can find, but figured that these must be available somewhere, so why not ask.

oh it's definitely better to eliminate extra joints if at all possible.

We sell them for the above stated reason. I haven't found anyone else online offering them.

Perfect! I like your sight glass protection tubes too... what are the chances you'd sell just the sight glass kit?

The sight glasses are custom and need to be welded in so we do not sell them without the kettle.
