Camozzi macroline fittings?

Does anyone know anything about Camozzi fittings? From the pictures on AirSoldier, they look like the threads are straight, compared to the tapered threads on Norgren fittings. Has anyone tried these? Do they fit flush against the hole without threads showing?

I used Camozzi fittings on my Ion when I still had it and there were literally ZERO differences compared to Norgren style fittings aside from the taper on the Norgren as opposed to the straight Camozzi, so if there's a taper it'll be tight fitting and if it's not tapered you're good to go.

But don't the Camozzi fittings sit closer to the body than the Norgren since they don't have a taper?

I haven't seen one that sits closer to the body or the other due to the threads.

Damn. Super lame. Thanks for your help, though.

If you really want them to sit close to the body look at how many threads are exposed and then trim that much off with a dremel tool. We used to do that back in the day and as long as you clean it up and re-seal you'll be good to go.

But since the threads are tapered, won't the end of the fitting be too wide to screw in after you cut off some of the threads?

No the taper is really just there to help the threads get started easily.
