flexi line
 
got a tech question, working on a project, need flex line, but need ability to run
co2, would copper line work?

Most copper line is not rated for CO2 pressure. Tippmann used flexible line on the carbine back in the day, but I think it was an alloy of some sort, can't remember. Properly rated macro would work, too.

Copper tubing, in small diameters is fine, see page 25.

I would doubt the corrugated stuff without data. Also, consider the annealed numbers if you need to re-anneal any bad bends.

Don't use an unknown "type" (K,L,M).

I've thought about 1/8" ACR for steam punk stuff.

Fittings for such things can be the bigger problem.

Well they do hold up two milk factories, but i dont think they are appropriate in this situation!

Try a gas supply shop they will have both brass and copper in suitable strengths.

I'd try Victoria's Secret. If you're trying to be discrete about your new look, Ebay has a nice selection.
