Anyone know where I can get the threaded barb fittings used on the Sierra air cylinders? I believe they are 3-56 threads and a 1/16 barb. Robart has press fit type to my knowledge. Sierra is of no help so I need to seek another solution before summer ends. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Maybe this is what you're looking for?

Thanks for the lead. I looked at clippard last night and couldn't find a perfect match (double barb). Just took a second look at mine and It appears that it is an M3 thread and not the 3-56 as I originally thought. At least I hope that's the correct thread and tube size. May have to go through my local Bimba dealer as I see they do have metric thread double barb fittings, and probably a minimum order to boot. Could be hit and miss until I find the correct one. Hoping someone has experience with a direct replacement. What a pain...
