Perfect Airsoft Barrels

Unread postAuthor: noname » Sat Nov 11, 2006 9:17 pm

Just so everyone knows, I can get people aluminum, brass, or copper tubing that fits airsoft BBs to less than 1/3 of a millimeter. The OD is 9/32 (.28125"), with and ID of .27." I can get it in 2 foot or shorter lengths. If anyone would want a piece or two, PM me. Aluminum is $2.59 and brass and copper are both $4.29. I am just supplying this to people who complain about 5/16" brakeline (I've heard it sprays them out everyone on spudtech and here), I'm not trying to make profit. I will put this on Classifieds as soon as I get a picture with my name on them.

Where are you getting this from? I would be interested if you found out how much it would cost to send it to South Africa.

The Aluminium sounds like the best to buy.

I get it from my local Ace Hardware. I haven't seen it at Lowe's, Home Depot, or any other Ace either though. The Ace near me was formerly Pastime Hardware, and Ace bought it. I'm assuming Pastime had the tubing and people buy it, so they just kept ordering it.
Shipping to South Africa, it definitely is not going to be cheap. Probably a minimum of $50 US. :(
Aluminum is the cheapest, but also the crappiest. If you get the tiniest dent, you have to cut it off where the dent is or it's unusable because of the great fit. Copper is probably second worst, it is a little heavier but is always bent when you buy it (I've never bought it :lol: , that's why). The brass is easily the best out of the three. It can get dents, but not nearly as easily as aluminum or copper. It is the heaviest out of the three and is never bent when you buy it. It's also shiny :P .

I'm guessing you live in america? I live in australia and what do you estimate the shipping price would be.

How would the payment be made?

do you have any suggestions about where i could buy that stuff in Australia.

Shipping would be well over $50 U.S. dollars, so the price is fairly ridiculous for what you get, about 2500% of what the brakeline itself costs. And no, I have no idea where you could get it in Australia.

I have an Ace Hardware semi-near me that I think sells the exact same stuff yours does and I can vouch that the brass is a better buy. I've bought two different aluminum barrels and not only will they not fire right with even the smallest dent, but they are prone to warping too. I haven't had any problems with the brass so far though.

Then again, I could be wrong and these could be completely different products.

I'm using 9/32" aluminum sleeved inside 5/16" aluminum, and it has never misfired. Nothing has gone wrong with it, and it can hit a target 2" in diameter from 50 feet away repeatedly.
