    Default WTB: C size to D size tubing

    Does anybody know where I can buy some tubes , preferably good quality plastic that I can just cut to the correct length and make some adaptors to convert a M*g D size to C size?

    Home Depot.

    1" black poly irrigation tube. Slit it lengthwise. It's thick, tough and cheap.

    1" white pvc, same place, HD. May rattle a little, but works fine.
    I'm glad it is dark, half of the time.

    Or roll up a strip of thick cloth. That's what I do...

    Thanks for your anwser.
    1" tube may be a bit small for the D size mag? I remenber seeing somewhere some tubes machined to the exact size made of Delrin I think. It was a while ago and I do not know if somebody is still making these nor who it was? Does anybody knows?

    You should be able to find 35 mm od (od of D cell) x 25 mm id (od of C cell) black ABS or PVC pipe at any plumbing supply shop; fiit may be a bit tight. D cells are ~ 62 mm long, so cut to fit.

    I use gray 1" PVC electrical conduit. It fits tight enough that there is no rattle.

    Here's the Delrin adapter that I made a while back.

    I still have some if you need them.
    You can read more about them in this thread

    Perfect fit in my case.... 3D Mag to 4C. Much lighter and reduced capacity though.
