This is what looked the closest to me, but I'm not 100% sure.http://www.mcmaster.com/#standard-plastic-hollow-tubing/=ozhiug
The P/N for acrylic tube is: 8532K13 Dimensional tolerance is: +/- .020"
It comes in 6' lengths ($3.69 per length) and works fine with the Primochill fittings.
Also available is PETG tubing which is more easily bendable, but more expensive at $6.84 per 6' length . . . . P/N: 9245K21 Dimensional tolerance is better at : +/- .010"
It also works fine with the Primochill fittings.
As far as comparing the original Primochill fittings to the new ones, (I bought a 4 pack of each for comparison) . . . . . . It's no contest, the new ones look soooooooo much better when you put them side by side you'd never want to use an older one.
Still not nearly as sleek as the C47's, but a huge improvement from the originals and overall, pretty damn decent.
