5/8 Internal Diameter pipe

Unread postAuthor: pizlo » Sat Jan 26, 2008 5:43 pm

Is there any PVC anyone has or knows any pipe size that has a 5/8 ID? If so I'll explain my seemingly very feasible precharged cartridge gun.

On McMaster, the 8' lengths of SCH 40 transparent PVC have an ID of .622", which is pretty damn close to 5/8". If you are willing to use PVC tube, then 5/8" is available in the non-flexible variety.

hmmm I might be able to get my hands on some of that steel at the local hardware store. DYI would the tubing work as a barrel if I sleeved it? keep in mind it would be subjected to small amounts of C02 very often.
and
@ spuddy buddy, either tonight or Monday when my iMac gets its new power supply I'll make a new topic with fancy little diagrams. Because this plan definatly deserves one.
