Home Depot sells flexible gas line by the foot, or 50-100' rolls. They have all the parts you might need too. That gas line is only under 7 pounds of pressure.

There is nothing special about propane hose. I have used automotive fuel injection hose and barb fittings for propane for many years, and after 15 yrs it does not deteriorate like propane junk hose does, and after some research come to find out even the clear vinyl hardware hose is perfectly suitable for propane. Both my Cat heaters are plumbed w/ clear vinyl for 7 years now.
The sad part,.....what people don't know, cost them a lot of money !

Get some braided steel hose cover from your local automotive speed shop to go over the rubber hose.

Check local regulations first. Pellet guns are less than $40 and won't have the neighbors calling "shots fired" and getting you shot.
BTW they do make low velocity 22 longs that the neighbors won't even hear.

Go to your nearby propane dealer. They can make up what ever you want provided it is legal for propane.


Propane dealers come in basically two flavos
Stores that sell propane. the includes some gas stations like Flying-J truck stops that have propane pumps (Many campgrounds as well)

And PROPANE DEALERS.. for an example google Parker's Propane in Flint.

The latter has everything you need and then some.


Home is where I park it.

Are you referring to csst (corrugated stainless steel tubing)? If so, be sure to verify that rv use is allowed by the manufacturer.

A quick update...
I called, searched online and stopped at over a dozen different places and no one has 1/2" stainless steel braided lines rated for propane. The propane suppliers either did not sell parts to the public or did not have what I wanted. I get a new rubber hose and I will have to go with a cover from an auto parts store.
Thanks for all the help and replies.
