Brass Air Line

I have seen people use stainless brake line as a air line before. I have a cocker that I am accenting it with brass, and would like to use Brass tubing as a macro line replacement. Can't seem to find any online that has a psi rating.

Has/does anyone currently use brass tubing as an airline?

Good question! I just checked McMaster Carr 3000 psi ok for you?

And now I know too!

Total brain fart. I didn't even think to check Mcmaster. I even order from them weekly.

Just noticed that it list it as not bendable. Was hoping to bend it 90*. Will order some anyway though.

Brass anneals real easily.
I'm actually surprised they didn't list any "bendable" brass tube. I used copper from McMaster Carr to hardline a cocker before.
it was bendable and rated to 3K.

Any tube can bend with the right amount of force. The key is the placement of the force to bend it in the shape you want. Take a look at conduit for electrical wires. Many places use rigid conduit which requires special tooling to bend.

And you have to know how to do it just right, even with the proper tooling.

Figure I would update this. The Mcmaster brass tube posted above bent just fine using a brake line bender. Fits perfectly into Macro fittings and doesn't leak. I will be bending tube for all of my guns. Some of the tube will get powdercoated black.

Looks awesome. Hopefully you will be leaving it brass for that 'Cocker.

Also what size did you go with. I can never remember to OD and ID of the macro line we use in paintball.
