Default beer gun

would something like this, with a t- and ball valve for co2 work for a beer gun?
Just thinking....... maybe 2 taped/soldered together. Being aluminum, would that be bad? I know stainless would be best, but 2 for 12 dollars and a couple fittings and lines??? cheaper than an blichmans. Has any one tired this?

Being a pneumatic tool, I would suspect that it is pre-lubricated when you buy it. I wouldn't want that in my beer. If you could clean it sufficiently, I suppose you could make it work if you had the right valves and such.

I would build one from scratch with valves and tubes and such if I really wanted one, I suppose.

Knowing HF stuff it's probably not to hard to break apart and clean re-lube. You might find it's foam up a lot though...

Chances are you have some/most of the parts already around. I just needed the stopper...

Exactly. Total cost for me was < $10, but I needed a disconnect, hose, and the stopper. Already had the picnic tap and bottling wand. Still cheaper than buying the part from HF and wondering if it'll to the trick. I normally would be encouraging experimentation but in this case it seems like a lot more work for at best, the same outcome as the linked one, and at worst, a waste of money, and potentially getting things into your beer that you don't want.
