So I was really bored and decided to try and find a new source of brass online. The good news is that I think I did manage to find one although I have not tried to order anything off of it yet.

It is not as nice as Mcmaster Carr but they do seem to carry several sizes of brass. The price with shipping is a little high if you are just ordering a few feet but if you wanted to buy a large amount of it (let's face it I know I would use a large amount of it) then it not so bad.

Just thought I would share what I found and perhaps someone else can tells us if this company is reputable or not.

www.towerhobby.com has K&S brass, they've worked out well for me.

True Value hardware is a good place to go shop, I have no idea what their online store is like though.

Here is the 1/2" brass for hereticorp's site. I couldn't find any brass on truevalue other than pipe fittings.

Also hereticorp, have you ever tried that brass with FA's foam? or if you own calipers, can you measure the ID?

Their 1/2" brass does not fit my FBR. The FBR is way too big. I don't have FA's FBR, I ordered my own from www.bestmaterials.com

The 9/16" fits loosely, works perfectly with tightening rings like FA24 has in his Angel Breech though.

The 17/32" would probably work well with FA foam, but that's a complete guess on my part.

Wow. Tower Hobbies' brass is really overpriced, and you have to buy too much in order to get any. I haven't got to order any yet, but this place has the best prices of any I have looked at so far. Ranging from $2 for 1/2" to $2.45 for 9/32". Shipping is pretty steep at $8 for any order under $100, but that price isn't bad if you are ordering a good bit of brass. Either way, I could get enough brass for two angel breeches for $20, as opposed to $46 (although, you'd have enough of everything other than 9/16" to make like 6 more).

damn those are pretty damn good prices for brass. About 1/2 what you will find it at True val. even with the 8 bucks shipping its still not a bad deal. Like you said you just have to order the right amount. I know where I will order from when I want to stock up.

Forgive my spelling and grammar. I post from my cell phone a lot. Sometimes when I'm on the can at work.
