How much are you looking for? I know a place we can get 20 mm rubber for as low as about $0.90/ft but I think minimum order is $200. If you're just looking for 10, 20, or 30 feet then contact http://www.floridafreedivers.net

P.S. - both places have 16mm too.

I just ordered 100 feet of black 9/16 for $1.0053 per foot from Primeline Industries. They didn’t charge me for shipping since their factory is only a couple hours away. Their minimum in only $100 and they make excellent rubber tubing. 9/16 is identified as 1/8 ID x 7/32 wall. Their web site is www.primelineindustries.com . You have to pay in advance or do C.O.D. Don is the salesman for small customers like us so ask for him.

All the members in our club are rebanding their guns with it this winter, and I will vacuum pack and freeze the rest.

Aydyn,

I've used 20 mm rubber from both Florida Freedivers (FF) and the other cheaper place I was talking about. Both rubber types are black on amber (outer thin covering of black, inner amber color). FF's rubber is pretty stout (and expensive). The stuff from the other place is a little softer. I've actually decided I like the softer stuff better. I can use shorter bands creating more stretch with easier loading.

Don,

Does you place sell 20 mm?

Scott,
That took some number crunching, but it looks like their biggest stuff, with 1/8” ID, is 19mm. This is part # 080B 1/8 ID x 5/16 wall. Does Euro rubber have an inside hole of approximately 1/8”?

Best thing to do is call Don and ask, because they may be able to make different than what is listed. They don’t stock anything unless it’s left over. Other wise they make it when they get an order.

Don,

The rubber I use doesn't have a hole in it (at least not an open one). OMER's 18 mm power band has an opening in it that's about the size of what you're talking about.
