Running Microline, need help finding a connector

So i need to run some microline (into an air thru stock) i found someone who sells bulk microline (air soldier products) but i'm having issuing finding something to connect it to the standard 1/8 fittings my marker normally uses.


Would this https://www.imi-precision.com/us/en/...-female-thread fit my needs?

Or would i need something else, if so can someone point me in the right direction?


Thanks in advance.

Air Soldier used to carry the norgren micro line fittings. That would be easy if they still have them, and you haven't ordered yet.

Paintball gateway has 1/8npt microline fittings for $5/ea.

Bacci has all sorts of microline fittings, as well, by the looks of it.

Most macro/micro line fittings for paintball applications will be 1/8th NPT. They should just thread right in.

If you need a female one, it might be easier to just use an 1/8th NPT coupler in combination with a more common male fitting.

I bought some from palmers, years ago. I still see some online. ie 5/32" to 1/8NPT.

note, microline is not standardized like macro. The macro is all 1/4 tubing, but I've seen a few different sizes for the micro. Also, many, many venders confused microline with lp tubing, which is rated far, far lower. ie 150psi instead of 1000psi. big difference.

Lastly, depending on your application, it might just be easier to use compression fittings, or banjo fittings as found on lots of hardline setups

I'm running the air line into a Special Ops A2 Air Thur Commando stock.

Is there any particular reason that it must be microline?

Would it be possible to convert it to macroline or SS braided?

The hole i plan to thread it into is only 5mm so a bit small for normal 1/4'' line.
