My 3 way co2 secondary has threaded connections out instead of the barbed connections that I had expected. How would I connect gas line to these threaded ends?

You could just buy barb connectors that thread right on. Use a little teflon tape and your good to go.

Would these barb connectors just screw onto my existing male threads? I dont know if I have seen a female thread to barb. Or are you suggesting that I remove these male threads that are already screwed in?

Um... those gauges are not quite right for beer. Dialing in a precise 9-12 PSI is going to be tough because the range is too large.

Yeah the one of the left may work but the other two may need to be replaced.
