Cut a 1 1/2" long section and pressed it down the tube lubricated with a light film of silicone grease.
Fit was quite snug and the ping is 90% gone. Best part a MUCH cleaner install than rolled up plastic tubing
Currently chasing down a 500# per 12 hour leak someplace within rifle ... so about to go all the way into the guts, deburr the parts with o-rings and surfaces they slide over getting assembled. New o-rings etc ...
Then I am going to do a 2 piece de-pinger using 2 each 3/4" pieces splitting the air chamber into thirds. I too will report my findings in a week or so.
Motorhead, where did you purchase the silicone tubing from. I went to both Lowe's and Home Depot and all they had was vinyl in small diamters and in 1 7/8" diameter and up. The larger diameter ones were too thick and stiff looking and I like the idea of using silicone tubing instead. Thanks for any information.
