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.

http://www.copper.org/publications/p...e_handbook.pdf

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.
