From what I have heard, the majority of the Airsoft community says that Walmart brand BBs are BAD. Walmart Brand BBs are known to be low quality, poor shaped, and poorly made, especially those cheap .12s that we all use for our cool little spring guns every now and then. Spring Gun Wars are fun once in a while right? But, I am talking about those .2 gram bbs from Walmart that seem to be decent for the price you know what I mean?
I have two buckets of Airsoft BBs that are currently in my "armory", and they are both purchased from Walmart. Low Price Obviously!
The following brands are brand that I plan to use/not use for my KWA M4A1 Carbine. I recommend higher quality BBs such as KSCs or Airsoft Elites, but I dont want these bbs go to waste now do I.
#1) Big Bucket of Crosman Brand BBs > 5000 rounds of White .2 gram bbs. They look decently shaped and they seem to have a little bit of polish in them but not much. Link below.
#2) Small Bottle of Cybergun Brand BBs > 2000 rounds of White .2 gram bbs. They look nicely shaped and they have a nice polish on them. I personally like these. Link below.
OK, Before I ask this question, to those who apply, I ALREADY KNOW THAT THESE BBS ARE Low Quality to many peoples standards.
I ALREADY OWN KSC Perfect .2 gram and .25 gram BBS AND I USE THESE FOR MY KWA M4 BECAUSE THEY ARE OBVIOUSLY BETTER.
I ALREADY KNOW THAT WALMART BBS CAN REDUCE MY ACCURACY.
I ALREADY KNOW THAT THESE BRANDS MAY HAVE INCONSISTENT WEIGHT AND MAY REDUCE/THROW OFF RANGE.
I PLAN TO USE THE STOCK INNER BARREL (6.05mm)
AND I KNOW YOU MAY SAY FRONT AND SIMPLE, " DO NOT USE THESE BRAND OF BBS. PERIOD" JUST BECAUSE OF THE NAME BRAND AND BECAUSE OF FEAR.
YOU GOTTA ANSWER MY QUESTION WITH A REASON WHY OR WHY NOT.
IT IS A MUST FOR PEOPLE WHO HAD EXPERIENCE WITH THESE BBs TO REPLY TO THIS POST BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH I AM HAPPILY OPEN TO OPINIONS, OPINIONS ARE POWERFUL ONLY IF BACKED UP BY FACTS.
NOTE THAT THESE ARE .2 GRAM BBS, NOT .12 GRAM BBS, AND THEY HAVE NO AEG DAMAGING/OBVIOUS/SCARY LOOKING SEAMS ON THEM.
**MY question is, Can I still use the two said brands of bbs for my KWA M4 as much as any other brand of bbs without damaging my KWA M4 (AND WITHOUT CAUSING LONG TERM/FUTURE PROBLEMS) and still shoot decently fine?**
I KNOW THEY MAY SUCK BUT...I hate wasting things that still can be useful you know what I mean? It sad to throw away these bbs. They look decently nice and harmless. Just give them a chance.
