    Who is still making hardlines?

    Anyone still doing these? If not, anybody know exactly what tools are needed and where to get them? I have at least two markers that I would like to put hardlines on. If the investment isnt too steep I might think about buying the tools to do it and making a few extra sets.

    Some people have used the lines from a Phantom. I have seen it done. you can get them through WWA but I am sure there are other places too.

    So basically just take these and cut them to length?

    Actually from what I recall, all you need to do it stretch them out a little, that will slightly decrease the angle and it will line up. No cutting necessary.

    At least this is what I remember.

    Doesnt do me any good for the bottom lines though. I want to replace both the line from the ASA to the foregrip and from the VASA to the valve.

    The compression fittings normally found on hardlines will piss you off more in the long run. They arent designed to come on and off frequently.

    If you are having macro fitting issues there are a few solutions. There is an oring inside of then, slather them with dow 55 to swell them. Also make sure your macro line ends are cut fresh every now and then. They do tend to wear out making then not want to seal properly.

    Today there are macroline issues to be sure. In general though, I have at least a couple that I would really like hardlines on. Might actually be interested in the hardline using macros. I want to replace the braided lines on my pump since I can't seem to get the exact length that I want. I'll PM you.

    WWA did mine, not sure if he is will still do them.

    usualy required sending the gun in for proper spacing

    Very nice Chrono. I've heard some pretty mixed reviews about WWA to be quite honest. I would be reluctant to ship him anything for custom fitting.

    Did Doc retire, or is he just insanely back-logged?

    Check out McMaster Carr. I was looking into doing some awhile back. You can get everything needed from them. Line,fittings, tubing cutter and bender.

    I agree.
    Also, it's nice to know if you are at the field, a macro line is quickly fixed. All you need is an xacto knife and some line.
    Done.

    Might want to look into Swagelok compression fittings. They're cheap and easy to fit, all you would need is a wrench. These fit nicely on an SS line. If there is a shop local to you that specializes in hydraulic and pneumatic hoses, drop by there and chat them up. They should have 1/8th inch NPT to Swagelok 90* elbows as well.
