I put it some where safe around 4 years ago, finally found about 8 foot of it along with the high pressure aluminium tube.

Pressure test equipment on the way ok for 700bar tests.
If a jobs worth doing, do it right or not at all.

I have been looking for it for over 5 years, forgot where i put it. Two workshop strip downs then it dawned on where i put it safe.


I used to make tubes for certain people in the trade we shall remain nameless 14 years ago, well since 1992 for my own hand made one off rifles.
Rule out the high pressure aluminium that was used on a certain production rifle and may be still is, the walls too thin i am not risking that even with a pressure test.
The TI came from the US and i was going to do 4 tubes for the HW100 or two normal lengths for other guns. Might have it myself now on the Anchutz.
