Copper suply

Unread postAuthor: pizlo » Tue Mar 04, 2008 6:52 pm

I had plans for a copper barrel sealer for a while, and since My mini with a barrel sealing is almost done, and I'm close to selling my sprinkler gun, I checked Mcmaster for copper... McMaster doesn't stock copper fittings and pipe! So the question for those of you in the U.S. where did you get your copper, a website would be best.

Oh and the gun will be chamber ABOVE barrel, this worked quite well with my last gun, and it can easily be adapted to have a stock.

Every Hardware store here in Canada sells copper of many sizes. Home Depot has piles of the stuff. I would think it is similar in the USA.

Fine, I prefer online for the simple shopping cart, and ease of use, but hell, a trip to home depot never hurt anyone. Thanks

Actually they do, just type in copper pipe or copper fittings into the search box and it comes up. You could probably find some at your local hardware store for a lot less money.

The problem here lies in the fact that what we call "copper pipe" isn't really pipe at all; it's tubing. This can be easily seen by the fact that copper isn't based on the schedule system, and is never threaded.
