Response to Why would steel be even close to the best posible material for a pump tube?
Why steel? Cost, ease of machining, strength, are the reasons I chose steel. Yes the other metals can be used, however, brass is MUCH more costly, aluminum doesn't play nice with other metals and scores easily. If you have to care for the other steel parts of a gun, it is no big deal to rub a little oil on the pump tube.
