They are a tight fit to get them closed... I am sure this will subside in time...

Is there a gasket between the two?

Yeah. There is a gasket in the female piece. The fitting is tight. I have yet to use mine but I should be doing wet test in the next few weeks.

They look really nice, It's good to see them in the correct scale, as the ones pictured on websites look to be a few inches wide. Are the insides rough cast?

They don't seem to be. Mine are smooth on the inside. Not polished smooth but smooth none the less.

One more question about the camlocks, I know this is going way off topic, but the barb appears to be way smaller than 1/2". True?

I thought I recalled seeing somewhere about the gaskets not being a high temp gasket. Is this a concern for you?

Yeah you are right. The barb is 1/2" OD so it fits inside 1/2" ID tubing. The ID of the connector seems to be pretty small but most of us control the flow from our pumps anyway so I don't see it being much of an issue.

Sorry Yuri for going off topic

It was quite easy to get 1/2" ID silicone hose over...

According to the site, I believe they are Buna N gaskets... If that isn't safe at higher temps, I am sure there are similarly sized silicone gaskets available...

This might be the answer to that.

Nitrile (Buna-N)

Trade Names:
Chemigum Hycar (Zeo (Goodyear)n Chemical) Ny Syn (Copolymer) Paracril (Uniroyal) Krynac (Polysar) Perbunan (Mobay)
The most widely used 0-Ring elastomer. Excellent resistance to petroleum products. Excellent compression set, tear and abrasion resistance. Does not have good resistance to ozone, sunlight, or weather, unless specifically compounded. Should not be stored in direct sunlight or near motors or other electrical equipment which may generate ozone. Temperature range: -40° to +250°F.
