Is it possible to just get a liquid out and gas in post and convert a pin lock to a ball lock? Got a pin lock keg from a friend and all my other kegs are ball lock. Thanks

Why don't you take one of the posts off of one of your ball lock kegs and see if it'll fit this new pin lock keg?

I can't think of a reason it wouldn't work, unless the threads on the kegs are different, but I don't know for sure.

The only conversion kits I've seen are for FIRESTONE brand kegs. Williams has them

Would it not be easier/cheaper to have a faucet with pin lock fittings (or even install quick disconnects with variable fittings) than to convert pin locks to ball locks?
