Quick Q - 5/16" Brake Line

Unread postAuthor: littlebro05 » Mon Dec 08, 2008 1:46 am

Just a quick question before I actually go out and buy this when you buy a 5/16" Brake Line Barrel from an automotive store, what is the length you get the tube, is the tube bent, and how much does it generally cost?

I come from Australia and I don't live near any hobby stores in a 30-50km radius. I think I might of asked this long ago but I can't remember :S. I'm sick of using Bic Pens because it's too much a hassle sticking them to gether and straightening them out. I just want one permanent solution :(.

It's Nerf or Nothing.

Don't start crying when I play this as my hobby, Paintball, Airsoft and Nerf are equally good hobbies, except you can play Nerf in public. Good day! Hmph!

In the US, most auto parts stores have 1/4" (pretty good match to 0.177 copper/steel BBs) in straight lengths that range from perhaps 1 foot to 3 foot long. It has been a while since I bought mine, but I believe the cost was about $1 (US) per foot.

Soemtime the line will have flared ends, easy enough to chop off with a hack saw.

5/16" OD or 7.93mm... because it's actually about 6mm ID, and so it seems from jimmy101's perspective it's quite cheap. thanks for the response XD all i need is to buy it then I can finish off my gun :D
