It's a 3D print. A friend of mine designed it.

Description suggests using a quart sized bottle. Would a gallon jug work/be supported by the adaptor just as well?

Great link except that what is posted is the printer code for a 3D machine and that I do not have. Up here there is a lot of concern about printers being used to fabricate components for "Ghost Guns". Yeah, I know it takes a very specific type of printer to generate the parts and components but the national hand wringers are in a "Throw the baby out with the bath water" mode and want to just outlaw them period.

I supposed one could modify the design for the typical threads on a gallon jug. Though you'd probably need to support the jug as well.

I've not heard anything about restricting the sale of 3D printers up here. Closest thing I've seen is a bill in NY calling for background checks on the sale of 3D printers "capable of printing firearms". Considering most hobbyist printers are only capable of printing various plastics (PLA, PETG, ABS, some carbon fibre impregnated variations as well), I don't think it'll apply to your run of the mill 3D printer.

If you check your local Kijiji/FB, you'll likely find people willing to print stuff for you.

Kijiji/FB are no friends of mine. For the most part I avoid them both with the same ardor and fervor that I also reserve for those afflicted with plague and Covid. If your designer bud ever gets to the point of actually manufacturing them himself, I'd be interested in acquiring one or two for the shop.
