Use a standard brass/copper fitting to brass pipe, if you want to keep plasic then just connect with a shark bite down the line a bit.
Yeah, I know I'm responding to an old post - so there.
Where I lived in TX, the water would corrode the metal. I had the plumbing problems to prove it. Plastic pipes don't corrode, which means no ripping out drywall years later to get to internal leaks.
I'll take no repairs down the road and easy virtually tool-free assembly over messing with flux, solder, and fire to assemble pipes any day of the week. Copper was a nice advancement away from iron and lead pipes. Pex and PVC are simply the advancements beyond copper.
