Vendor for Mortar Tube Details

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a vendor that offers accurate mortar tube vaccuformed parts. I have found a number of options that aren't super accurate. Any suggestions?

Ross walmsley , RWA creations . I contacted him on Facebook messenger. Sent out pretty quick but shipping was long from the uk. Tell him to send regular post , cost a couple bucks extra but way better than the parcel to go…

Part is on the left compared to an anovos on the right . Looks great imo

If you are in the US, there is a good vendor in North Carolina.

US would be better. Are they accurate?

I think the only outstanding issue for us in the states is the mortar tube. I remember the UK uses a wider tube that isn't easily available here. I got end caps from tosche traders and they are much larger than the tube I currently have.

I use a 2-inch ABS black pipe. Sometimes I also use a 2-inch PVC pipe. But the outside diameter is the same.

I use a 2" Charlotte Pipe from Lowes:

I think the more accurate one is 65mm = approx 2.5" but good luck finding one.

I found a few options on Amazon, they are clear tubes but would work fine if painted. OD is about 2.5" 

This is the cheaper one:

Here is a more durable but more expensive one.

Ross is the guy to ask, i provided reference pictures for his plate, most other vendors are far from accurate.

Mostly they only use standard TK detonator plates which are completely off, have a close look before you buy!    :thumbsup:

The only way to be sure is to ask your vendor to send you a picture of exactly what you'll receive, then compare it to the screen captures and behind the scenes photos.
