I can tell you it isn't. Japanese specification is simply telling you they market it to be more expensive than it really is

//sorry for odd autocorrect words by my phone//

let me rephrase that.....

they are half the price for twice as many...........   5,000 for $13

so if they are out of the same factory & are not "seconds" then it would be great to save some money on them.

Go with Bioval's, they're a little more expensive but they're hands down the best BB you can buy. Plus, they're fully biodegradable so you won't have any troubles at fields. Not to discount these BB's, but I just don't trust that they're to the level I want. This also depends on what guns you use; are you an AEG user or a GBBR user? AEG users tend to shoot a lot more, so high precision BB's don't matter as much. A GBBR user only fires about 1/4 as many times as the average AEG(mids caps hold about 120 rounds, gas mags hold about 30) so having absolutely flawless ammo is pretty important. I'll personally always use Bioval's from now on, I dunno what needs your BB's have to meet.

hmmmm  

your pretty much on the inside...   so that kinda leans to someone is just copying the KWA diameter & spec....

thing is they only come in 20's & 25's.........    i run kwa 30's in everything..  

BUT at half the price im paying for KWA's.... if they are exactly the same.. may have to give them a shot & drop back to 25's.

just for shits & giggles got a bag on the way and will run a compare of the 2 & see what i get.

if anyone else from KWA wants to step in and spill on these i d love to hear from you.

I do know that KWA makes, or made, BB's for other manufacturers....And they can be purchased in rice sacks to resellers for repackaging....so, it could be that they are KWA.  But, that said, I have no information to confirm that.

Let us know how they work.

I used to use these when I thought evike's matrix was a good brand. I washed mine, ad they performed pretty well. Didnt't do an accuracy test, but i got some kills with them with give or take 100 feet. Doubt they were kwa though

It makes little sense to me that they would be KWAs.  Evike sells the real thing, in different bags.  What reason could they have for selling the same BBs at a lower price?

how about because they get them cheaper & make more money on them?   same thing that every outfit does that gets their "own" line by actually subbing them out...

its already been stated here by people who know that KWA  DOES make bb's for other people.. they just didnt say who..

our team had several guys use them this weekend ... while the rest of us used KWA's .....   we did this as a test with the 25's...

well?

absolutely NO DIFFERENCE...  not in flight path, fly aways, squibs, distance or anything else that we could find.

we run fairly stock guns with Rhops or Flathops & we were the only ones who knew which of us had which BB's...

so if you only run 25's?   then this was double the amount for the money.

shame they dont offer them in 30's........................
