I've got four like that.  Or at least they came like that.

I think the dip tubes may have been brown originally, but they creeped me out.

I pulled them and replaced them with a simple stainless washer and o-ring.  Double o-rings work just fine, too.

You can buy the new ones from Williams and other suppliers (I think More Beer has them, or someone else out west) if you want, but standard dip tubes won't work because these are narrower.

The one keg I had must of had the plastic dip tube added later because a normal stainless dip tube fit fine. I'm guessing cost savings instituted at the syrup factory.

Anyone ever seen a gas post like this? Red plastic?

Yep, got a couple kegs that use those.

I've replaced the o-ring but couldn't find an adequate replacement for the tube. They still work fine with  new o-rings.
