You cant find it in any section. They have it in the back of almost all auto stores. If you want it, you probably will have to ask, either that or get some tubing from a hobby store. Oh, and Auto stores because brakeline is for car brakes, and Autozone Has all sorts of sizes.

Yeah just go to a local auto parts store and ask for 1/4" brake line. I'd think it would be something they keep in the back, so you'll have to ask and they will probably go fetch some out the back. Might call ahead of time to make sure they got it.

Shouldn't be much more you need to say then that.

Pimp, what if it he needs a smaller caliber, then he wont ask for 1/4 inch. If it is for a .177 caliber bbs it would be 4.5 mm, or airsoft you would ask for 6 mm brakeline.

Exactly, 4.5 is what need, so they probably don't have it in the front? I'll just call them and get it over with. :D

Dude if you are in the US just go to ACE hardware and get some 1/4 inch or whatever size you want and they'll have all the flared fittings reducers couplers whatever you need and a flaring tool as well. that way you can completely make your own for your custom needs.

Yea, that's definitely going to get you at least a tazer.

(3/16) inch = 4.7625 millimeters
(5/16) inch = 7.9375 millimeters

just type "3/16 inch in mm" on google and it will help you out converting next time :)
