Q. for Aussies

Unread postAuthor: chinnerz » Wed Apr 21, 2010 2:27 am

Let me state first that i would rather buy something from a shop than online.

Ok, i would like to know where to get various sized O-rings and metal tube.

This is probably not the case for tubes (or maybe it is) but i need springs tubes and o rings of various sizes from time to time and i was wondering if the sold these products in a boxes like this...

any help would be appreciated

I know you asked for offline, but http://www.smallparts.com.au/store/categories/ has what you require. Including 4.53mm ID thick wall brass perfect for barrels.

yeah man hobby shops are the go for small di. tubes .. they have a stand full of different sizes and lengths and a lot of them telescope really well, i think i had 3to 4 pipes inside of eachother :lol:

lol how much ?? i bet that hurt :wink:

also chinnerz i found springs really aren't that expensive to get made if you need one for that special purpose and just cant find the right one. (probably not small springs but for say a air rifle spring :D ) the only problem is there's usually a min $$ (not bad ) but you might end up with a couple for the price of 1 if you know what i mean :lol:
