Default Hardline 'Hose'

Has anyone came across or used any hardline on their markers? I'm wondering what the specifics would be if I were to go looking to buy some.

Also, if anyone has any experiences with hardline, could you give me any pros and cons you have come across? Macroline is always an option, but it's not quite what I have in mind.

Thanks for the link, Shady.
Yeah it's for my MR2.
I was planning on plugging up the hole on the underside of the marker, then tapping a new one on the side of my MR2 to run the hardline down the body and through my stock. Pinkanese suggested I just try to work with the existing holes (there's not very much metal to tap into apparently), which will add a few more adapters and bends and room for leaks (sigh).

Here's a pic of what I originally wanted.

p.s. sorry couldn't find a pic handy without my qloader on.

IF I work with the existing adapters, I'll need to run the hardline vertically up my grip for a little ways, (the hole would come out an inch or so down the grip) and then either do a curved 90* bend in the line, or use additional 90* adapters.

The biggest problem that comes to my mind with the hardline is getting the length exactly correct so it all lines up. I'm thinking inside the stock will be the worst part for that, so I might have to use macroline inside the stock, but I'd like to stay away from it, if possible.

Anyway, I'll start searching around this week for all the materials I'm going to need, and hopefully have some new pics up. Wish me luck.

Just use Macro and do what I did. Easier, and cheaper.

You're gonna want to use 2-90* 1/8"npt compression fittings on that so you can easily remove the line when you need to oil, remove the stock or tech the marker. The pump markers of the 80's(specifically PMI's) were set up that way. Length of line won't need to be so exacting then either. The compression fittings will seal off the pressure on the line as well -

I would also consider using pipe benders rather then fitting, however with a bend so sharp this is likly not possible. Can I ask why you are so against macro line?

Thanks for the info Dragon. Thats something I wasn't thinking of, having to remove it often. Is there a certain metal I should look for in particular? I've seen some brass used, but I'm guessing I could use stainless steel or something else?

Ace; easier and cheaper?! That would be taking the fun and frustration out of it!

Slim, I'm not so much against macroline. I think I'm just being a little stubborn, it's in my head that I want to try hardline. I think it would look a little better, at least the length running down the body. For inside the stock, I'm not too concerned, macroline might be the way to go, but, one of my big hobbies with paintball is trying something new or not so easy, I feel a little better when it all comes together properly.

I'll give it all a try anyway.

Arrow Re: Hardline 'Hose'

I'd look for brass, it's more common and less expensive. Stainless won't hold paint either in case you plan on doing that. ACE/ACO prolly won't have the compression fittings. You might have a better chance at a ma & pa hardware. They use them on brake lines, transnmissions and other auto applications so you might try auto supplies as well -

they also use the stainless/compression fittings on UGI gas lines at the arrestor by the meter. You'd have to look at a building's natural gas arrestor/breather to see what I mean.
