the diameter of an airsoft bb is 6mm so assuming that you go by american mesurement.238" ID should fit a bb perfectly, i would get out some calipers and measure the Id of my airsoft barrell but im too lazy

in the upcoming presidential election, there will be several candidates who will be running, one of whom is Hillary Clinton. Now WAIT A SECOND!!! I though there was some sort of rule that prevented someone from serving more than two terms in office. Vote Against Hillary: Presidential Elections 08

You can buy real airsoft gun barrels. Some are smaller diameter than others for a better fit.

Use ¼” (quarter inch/.25call) copper tubing works I’ve tested it at home-cheapo. 6mm is .24call, and ¼” is .25call.

edit:
go with bluetooth's idea.

3/16" brakeline won't fit airsoft or .177 BBs, 9/32" brakeline has an ID of within half a millimeter of an airsoft BB.

5/16" brakeline is good, but 9/32" is a whole lot better. I sleeve 5/16" brakeline over 9/32" so the 9/32" won't get bent, that's my only use for it.

is that a rhetorical question? maybe you should try searching for it on google, i managed to find a website for it in less than one minute. also try looking for auto repair shops around your area, they should have what you're looking for.

:arrow: Just buy the cheapest (search What Do YOU Think to find mine) you can go to most sporting goods stores and find them cheaper because you don't have to pay shipping, and you get the benifit of haveing the bb's instantly I just used a TINY plumming pipe. :D

I used a 1/4 inch sized barrel
