Yup piece of cake. All you need is a flaring tool, a line bender, the appropriate tubing nuts and ferrels and you are all set.

I remember Doc did some one-piece, fittings-less, stainless hardlines; really nice piece of work

You can use some brake lines as well. Check the pressure ratings before you do though. Nothing sucks worse than a blowout during a game.

You can get a tubing bender, and fittings at your local ace hardware, and the brake line at your automotive parts store.

Yeah brake line is the cheap way and easy to get. Normally its rated for pressure in the thousands, normally. You will need to get a bender for anything but copper though and even then the bender makes everything come out better. YOu can get the flaring tool at sears or autozone or other such places. You want a 45* flaring tool and I suggest you use double flares, I like how they seal better than single flares.

brake line is what i used for my bolt action cocker. works great, holds pressure and is rather easy to bend into shape.

I'm not familiar with the flaring process, would anyone care to elaborate? What exactly does flaring do?
