WTB- Siphon Tube

I've blown my last siphon tube, and I'm too lazy to make another.

Anyone have an extra?

Siphons, in paintball guns, are made from flexible microline hose, attached to compression fittings. After enough use, the hose eventually blows.

They use flexible hose, instead of copper pipe, so that the hose will bend to match whichever way the tank is installed.

Anti-siphons are super simple to make, as you said.
But siphons are harder since you won't find sutable microline-strength hosing at your local hardware store.

I see one on Ebay for $8 (+ $4 ship).

I have one sitting on my workbench. PM me your address and I'll drop it in an envelope. I also have a metric bungload of 1/"8 teflon tubing. If you want some I'll throw in a few feet.

Montneels, Clones, etc.

I've become an old fart in my age, refusing to adopt modern technology like HPA, and electronics...

Hang around here enough and you'll see that quite a few of us still use them (or in Nick's case never quit using them).

Well, I did splurge 4 years ago, and bought a "new" Rainmaker, and HPA tank.

But it didn't feel right to me. So the Electro was converted to pump, and I traded the HPA tank for an old chinese Boxer blowback.

I'm not anti-technology, but I no longer play tournaments. And to be honest, I miss the old days. So, I prefer to fool myself into thinking that it is still 12 years ago...
