OMC does not seem to carry what I would like. I am looking for a supplier that carries PETG tubing with a 1 inch inside diameter, and the thinnest walls I can get. I am using this for a plunger tube in a Nite Finder because it is cheap, light weight, and easy to lubricate. Yes I could use PVC, CPVC, Copper, etc. But it is difficult to get it the way I would like, and with super thin walls.

Any manufacturers anybody knows of that carries this and in a way where one could purchase it in less than a 100 foot minimum? Preferably around 12 feet you know, but it's hard to get that out of large industrial suppliers.

Some pet stores sell what you are looking for. Ask venom213 about it.

Is it fear or courage that compels you?

My Lowes had some sort of sleeve covers for flourescent light bulbs. They looked as though they could work for a plunger tube.

That stuff at loses is way to thin it could tear or deform in little time. I've seen stuff at petsmart.

almost all pet stores carry thin wall in 1" and 3/16"
some carry all sizes, such as pet express
as far as i know, no pet stores carry thick wall, but i could be wrong

Bob those push pull guns are too big to fit in a nitefinder. They are like 1 1/8" wide, but they make really good shotguns with an rscb clip with 1" stefans it shoots at least 2 at a time and at about 60'. on the rare occasion it will shoot a full sized one close to 100'.

also when at the dollar store pick up some 15" glitter batons and the center piece of petg is like the perfect material for making rscb clips.
