Where do you buy supplys

Unread postAuthor: john bunsenburner » Wed Jan 28, 2009 3:18 pm

Most of the time us spudders will work with what we have, but then every so often you notice:
"Damn for some wierd reason the hard ware store(my second home, if not to say my first) doesnt have .177 barrels, or is for some unexplainable reason they are not too well stocked in braided tubes, ones that hold over 500psi."
To cut the long story short, i would like to know where on the internet you order things, what websites some one should avoid and which are highly recomended. Maybe for my European mates (to which i belong) mention if they ship over sea(considering most shops will be located in the US). Thank you, and i cant wait to hear all the responses.

there are hundreds of shops in europe.. ordering stuff from US is kind of stupid when you have everything here and even more than they have

for god sake use google it doesn't hurt...

I can buy most stuff in poland so there is no need to order anything from other EU countries.. I doubt it is any different in switzerland

Yes but when i search google i will only get shops, i also asked for the experience you had with the different shops, something google can never give me. Switzerland is a tiny country, barely any people on a huge area(if you count the area on the mountains an area as big as the US). To own an airgun you hae to be over 18, the only exeption is if you already have an air gun(laws have changed). I will not be able to find any barrels here, stocks i can get at fleemarkets every so often but somethingn i just cant find. Heck, i even went to a large hardware shop(the largest in town) and they didnt have reducers for any pipe, nothign at all. I have to drive about 30km until i reach a shop that might have fittings...

In other words, Please just tell me where you would order things in my situation. I like BCarms but somethings they dont have. Also i spent hours on end earching ebay and google for a .177 barrel and mostly got US shops that didnt ship, or paintball barrels.

I don't know about barrels for airguns and paintball guns but I am sure there have to be some online shops in switzerland...

I've never had any problems when buying stuff online (ok when I ordered a 1/2" QEV I had to wait a week for it - but that was only once) and seriously I don't expect you will have any if you order something... so I don't quite get this
the experience you had with the different shops

lol then you must be really really unlucky... for some of the guys here poland seems like a third world country but somehow I've never had such problems :wink:

lol it's hard to help you...
just try to find a shop selling pneumatic stuff... I seriously doubt there would be any problems.. if what you described is true then you have to be very unlucky

I think i found something, it is a company which supplys switzerland with alumium products and they claime to be the largest company for alli here, i will see if i can order a tube(barrel) there. some one recomended a paintball website to me in the chat so i found braided tubes which are rated high pressure, and i found a pneumatics website in the Uk
(airlines-pneumatics.co.uk) which will supply me with valves if i need them. I think i shoudl be able to get ammo here and so i am all set, i will look around a bit to find a shop with reducers. Thanks for your help, and if any one has any more suggestions on where to get things, i am always happy to hear some recomendations.

Berklean brake line. Comes in all different lenths and diameters. Can be gotten at any autoparts store, any kind of metal brake line will work. Summit Racing, PAW=Performance Auto Warehouse, Advance Auto, Napa, they all have .com's.

Wouldnt a brake line be far too flexible as a barrel? I would have to straiten it, and cast soemthing around wouldnt i?

Brake line is pretty tough. Just don't step on it, sit on it, leen on it. Go to a parts store and check it out.
