Thread: How to get those solid pipe air lines?

    How to get those solid pipe air lines?

    I've seen them around the forums periodically, solid air lines custom shaped to guns.

    I have a Tac One and would like to figure out how to do this for myself and a couple friends. Anyone know a good resource to get started?

    any hand held tubing bender will work, it's like bending new break lines on an old car.

    You will need a 1/4" tubing bender. I prefer the older Parker tubing benders over the modern ones.

    Do you use standard pipe fittings for the tube or are the fittings specifically for steel or ally tube?
