I like www.buyfittingsonline.com for stainless pipe fittings. I do have some parts left, very few... I have 1/2" polycarb tubing with a stainless compression elbow that needs a 3/8" female pipe thread on the keg.

Morebeer is the cheapest for the 1/2 NPT full couplings. Also, you can get free shipping if you order some other stuff at the same time.

Yeah, actually buyfittingsonline.com is the cheapest I've seen on stainless besides my local plumbing house.

My sight kit does come with the elbow so you'd just have the coupling welded in and thread my elbow in with the teflon tape. The polycarbonate should hold up as long as you don't have flames licking up the side of the keg for the whole session.

I got my fittings from the local supply house for basically what I could get them online for. I was in a hurry, I had a welder waiting and didn't want to lose a golden opportunity.
