im gonna buy the sr-12, so will the goldenball .25 bbs work well with the stock gun? what are some pros and cons about the bbs? how do they compare to other bbs? do you guys think its worth paying over 100 dollars on bbs?

Stick with AE or KSC.  

GBs are good if you are broke like me.

I am having a hard time understanding why Chinese from China can't name anything that doesn't sound so Chingrish.

And the picture have nothing to do with BB's with a five years old pulling a kite.  Very tactical indeed.  :huh:

I know ... I know..  Off topic.... I can't help it

I actually have a bag of golden ball BBs laying around, the .25 white ones. My gun is dissassembled and i haven't had the chance to shoot it so i don't know how well they are. But i've heard good things about them, like they don't have a visible seem, no air bubble, etc. But i did heard that they get your barrel dirty quicker so you'll have to clean it more often.

Heres a review of them from ASR

http://www.airsoftre...p?topic=70477.0

I also bought a bag of KSC .25s.. but i haven't shot those either. But from looks the KSC one looks better for me though, i don't know why. It does have a small injection point on some BB though(which is bad). My bag of GB was $7 and my KSC was around $10(without shipping). So if you got the money I guess go with the KSC(or Airsoft Elite which i prefer). But if your loaded, buy Bioval BBs(BBB) they are like $20 a bag. Also there are Maruzen Super Grandmaster BB .29s which are like $15 for 500, which is outrageously expensive(but are super quality).

Also Shogo, how does GoldenBall sound "chingrish"..

Without injecting any of my personal opinion; I'm going to move this to Off Topic discussion.

Okay, after washing the bbs (water and twisting the bottle around), I did not have the jamming issue anymore.  While drying off the bbs, I noticed that some had pieces of black stuff on them.  (only a couple)  I'm going to test some more of the GBs that I washed to see if it was just a fluke, or if it really works.  (I washed a whole bag :D)  

I recommend washing bbs anyway, the polish removes some of the friction on the hop up bucking, so you won't get as good of a spin.  Shredder gave me the idea and so far I've found good results.

If the bbs continue to perform this way after the washings, then I recommend them 100%.

Yeah......well I would have always wondered what they would be like.  

Shredder has been using them for a while and has never had problems.  Several people on ASF use them and don't have problems with them either......  

For some reason, they hate my gun.  I'll get a perfectly fine shot and then one that rolls out the barrel or is only going like 100 fps.  After this happens for like 5 rounds, it works perfectly fine after.   :blink:   It's not my gun because the TSDs I had worked fine.  

So the washing didn't help.  I tried using silicone spray today and it worked for one mag (sprayed the bbs), but of course the bbs had no range because of the silicone......  I loaded some more up and the jamming/fps issue occurred again. (I guess they didn't get enough silicone..... <_<)  I cannot figure this out.  The jamming is worse with my STAR midcaps than highcaps.  I have a Guarder air nozzle installed (slightly shorter than the stock SRC nozzle) and I even have a flipping sector clip.  Nothing is working....

When they start to work, they work amazingly.  VERY accurate bbs.  Their .2s are more accurate than TSD .25s  :rolleyes: These are like one of the only brands I know that don't have air bubbles inside.

I have used probably 60-70,000 rounds of those GoldenBall BBs and never had a jam.  Considering the price, they are amazingly accurate.  I never did any grouping tests due to lack of range in my neighborhood, but I can recommend them without hesitation.

BTW, I am the co-editor of the above review ;).

It's interesting:  I have the the strong suspicion that the G&G brand is merely an OEM of the GoldenBall brand!!  GB BBs smell very particular like styrene, and I have never smelled anything like that in any other brands until I stumbled over the pretty new G&G BBs.  Another indication that G&Gs may be a GB rebrand is if that typical air bubble inside the BBs is *not* existent.  If you cut any other BBs in half, you will find a usually off-center air bubble (for some odd reasons).  GB BBs do not have them!

I need to find some G&G BBs in the depths of my garage first to confirm my suspicion.  I forgot to do this because of so many other projects...  :D

Go onto ASR and check out the GB bbs. Rookiesniper proved in one of my other posts that GB .3s are more accurate than MB.36s and they have no airbubles. Its just that they are one of a few companies that offer High weight white bbs which are always in demand. I also recommend Bivoals.

G&G .25s have the air bubble in the middle, so no they are not GB knockoffs or rebrands. G&G is very good brand of BB, never had a problem in any of my guns with them (AEG, AEP, or GBB). The only ones I think might be better would be KSC or even Javelin. I don't use over .25s as it is, so there's no point in saying anything about the .27 Biovals or anything like that. And yes I have a bag of TSD bios that I have used and still prefer G&Gs.
