Bronze Pipe Nipples

I know this has come up before and no one has been able to find a source of real bronze, not red brass, pipe nipples.

I stumbled across a Groco catalog and lo and behold they DO make a bronze pipe nipple!!

MS—

The main problem is finding a vendor that stocks them.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Groco also sells bronze elbows but they are hard to find in their catalog.
You can buy direct from Groco, but it is at list price.
Defender will order anything you want from groco, BUT, you cannot return special orders. So check with Groco first to make sure you are ordering the right parts. Groco phone support is very good.
