McMaster-Carr or OringsUSA?

Which do you prefer? McMaster-Carr is about 20x cheaper but that seems like a red flag.

Both are great sites but I tend to go oringsusa because of the $5 minimum order to ship and mcmaster wants you to buy in larger quantities but both sell a quality oring product.

I order from McMaster all the time, they are legit.

Whats nice for me is they are about 1.5 hours away so I usually get my order same day

I went with McMaster. OringsUSA is nice and all but their orings are expensive. For the same money you can pick up nearly 10x as many orings through McMaster. If you only need a small order oringsusa is handy but for anything beyond a small special order I would put together a bigger McMaster order.

McMaster Carr is also great for macro/micro line fittings & hose. Really and air line fittings you may need.

McMaster is cheap because they are a bulk industrial supply distributor. They sell quality parts though. And if you feel the need to waste money you can even buy mil-spec o-rings from them. Good enough for critical seals on multi-million dollar aircraft etc, they should be acceptable for a paintball marker.

With urethane orings, I have had better luck with oringsusa.
