Hello,

KWA recommends .25 BB's in the MKIV. Will I notice a difference in accuracy at shorter ranges around 15-20 feet (garage/basement) using .20 bb's?

Thanks

I think at that close a range, it won't make a difference.

I think the KWA recommendation is a performance recommendation.  No harm should be done to the pistol with .20 BBs.  I've shot the entire range of weights and don't notice any difference at this range.  But I've found KWA's recommendations to be good and usually stick with 0.25g and heavier.

.20 gram bbs should be fine. I use them all the time in my MK II and M9 PTP when just plinking around. Just make sure to buy a kwality brand. (see what I did there?) I recommend KSC/KWA Perfect BBs.
