Default Let's talk euro (adapters and stuff - help!)

Alright, so a couple weeks ago I picked up a Century 225 DC Mig machine, century guns are big $$$ so my tech guy at toll found me an adapter to go from the century mig box to a regular tweco type connection.

Now, I want a binzel gun as I've heard good things about them and the grip looks comfy, the binzel gun I've got in mind:

claims to have a binzel euro quick connector, what I'm curious about is this, since I can't get a century --> Euro adapter, will it work to have the century-->tweco adapter and then this tweco-->Euro adapter:
http://cgi.ebay.com/MIG-GUN-ADAPTER-...QQcmdZViewItem
to go from the first adapter to the gun?

Is there a difference between the lincoln fast-mate disconnect and the binzel euro disconnect? The fast-mate adapter auction even mentions that it's euro style and I'd rather not waste my money...help me out guys, I'm dying to play with my new machine!

Buggy.....the fastmate from lincoln is in fact a euro-quick connector. Binzel makes a very nice mig torch, as long as consumables are available.
