Will this type of fitting/setup cause any problem?

Hi everyone

So i have an automag rt-ule with an emag grip just for the look. Right now my stainless hose run straight from the drop forward to the mag, resulting in a very long hose that look ugly and get in the way.

Right now i am thinking of doing this and already have most of the necessary part, just have to go exchange my brass pipe nipple since it is a bit too long.


The setup would go like this from the drop forward to the xvalve on the mag.

drop forward > stainless steel tube > aluminum 90 elbow > brass connector > brass pipe nipple 2" > brass 90 elbow to turn it side way > aluminum 90 elbow to turn it toward the valve > stainless tube > aluminum into the valve.

Will the brass cause any problem? Or should that work out just fine?

thanks

So, making a hardline using plumbing fittings?

One hard thing is making everything the exact right length, or you will find it extremely difficult to connect everything together.

You'll hate it when you need to remove the valve.

Also, it sounds like your setup may be a bit prone to catching on stuff. If you play a lot of woodsball you may want to rethink your options. Hardline can catch and bend if its brass, and you don't need a very big bend before you have a leak.

the hardline will only be inside the emag battery grip, all the lines outside will be stainless steel air hose.

Thanks
