The Who’s Who of Precision Airsoft BBs

Experienced airsofters know that the right BB makes all the difference in the world and they look for seamless, perfectly spherical BBs that will not shatter upon launch. Not only will these BBs improve your accuracy and overall performance, but they keep your gun’s internals debris free.

The same cannot be said for cheap-o BBs. Cheap BBs, like those you fine at Walmart and sporting goods stores, cause irreparable damage to a gun’s gearbox, stripping the pistons and clogging the internals with BB shrapnel. The result is jamming and, ultimately, a broken gun. Many crappy BBs claim to be seamless, but don’t be fooled. These BBs have seams – they have simply been polished away. The seam still exists within the BB body. The result is inconsistencies in shape and structural vulnerability, both of which greatly increase the likelihood of shattering.

If you haven’t watched yet, I recommend checking out Vince’s video where he takes a hammer to some of these craptastic BBs. They shatter to pieces… while a high quality airsoft BB simply flattens out.

At Airsoft Megastore, we only carry the best BBs because we understand the vital role BB quality plays in the longevity of an airsoft gun. There are 5 big names in the quality airsoft BB arena: GoldenBall, Elite Force, G&G, King Arms, and TSD.


The entire Airsoft Megastore team is pretty much obsessed with Goldenball Proslick BBs. These are the best of the best when it comes to airsoft BBs. GoldenBall manufactures top-of-the-line, ultra-seamless, competition-grade airsoft 6mm BBs. Compared to the average BB out on the market, these pellets sport a 40% improvement in density and spherical consistency. The result is an average FPS gain of 8-15 FPS on a standard metal gearbox AEG. You get all the power and none of the annoying jamming. Trust me when I say, try these once and you’ll be hooked.

Elite Force

Elite Force BBs are superior airsoft BBs packaged in a unique and insanely convenient water-bottle-style container with screw top. These are probably the easiest BBs to store, carry and load, making them a real advantage on the field. Elite Force BBs have been quality tested in a variety of mid and hi-cap magazines to prevent against misfires and jamming. This and the consistency of the BB shape and size make these extremely competitive precision BBs.


G&G is probably best known for their high grade full metal gearbox AEGs, but they manufacturer some pretty impressive airsoft BBs as well. Airsoft Megastore can say with confidence that these are some of the most reliable precision grade airsoft BB's currently available. G&G PSBP (Perfect Spherical Ball Pellet) BBs are flawless, uniform in both weight and size, seamless, non-toxic BBs. Load these up, and you’ll experience greater accuracy and shot consistency. No jamming, magazine fail, or mucked up internals. Just clear, long shots with greater consistency and power. Airsoft Megastore has a distribution deal that allows us to carrying these killer BBs, at the lowest price you’ll find online.

King Arms

King Arms recently launch their all-new Platinum-Series of high precision competition-grade Airsoft 6mm, and we are here to confirm, these are simply the best airsoft BBs to come out of Taiwan to date. If you are looking for a high grade airsoft BB at an affordable price, look no further. King Arms’ ultra-high quality, sniper grade BBs will give your airsoft game an edge and make you rethink what it costs to stock a high value airsoft BB.


TSD BBs are another highly respected, high-value, precision airsoft BB line. With biodegradable airsoft BB options, they also make sense for the more eco-conscious airsofters out there. These slick, competition-grade BBs reduce barrel jam and gear stripping. Buy in bulk for extra savings; TSD tactical BBs come in packages of up to 15,000 rounds.

Shot Show 2012 Recap

Airsoft Megastore was given exclusive access to Shot Show 2012 this year, and it was amazing. If you are not familiar with the Shot Show, it is the world’s largest shooting sports, hunting and law enforcement convention. The Shot Show showcases the industry, including the latest developments in firearms, ammunition and airsoft BBs, law enforcement, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics and other related products and services. The Shot Show is open to industry insiders only, so needless-to-say Airsoft Megastore was stoked to be given full access to entire event and permitted to film and share our experiences.

David and Vince arrived at the Shot Show on January 17th and started a comprehensive video tour for all the airsoft related booths. They learned about upcoming airsoft trends and collected awesome swag for some lucky Airsoft Megastore Facebook fans.

Highlights of the Airsoft Megastore Shot Show 2012 tour include:

  • The NcSTAR table showed us their newest Evo Scopes, lasers, and soft goods for better maneuverability on the airsoft field. After viewing the latest from NcSTAR, Vince and David can attest that their 2012 gear is consistent with what you’d expect from NcSTAR; reasonably priced, quality optics with innovative design.

  • Airsoft Megastore also had a chance to meet with ActionSportsGames or ASG, and view their upcoming line of hardcore airsoft firearms. A relative newcomer to the US Airsoft industry, ASG has more than 15 years of solid airsoft distribution experience in Europe, with especially strong presence in France, Poland, Scandinavia and the UK. ASG focuses on the high end airsoft market and Airsoft Megastore is looking forward to see what they bring to the fray!

  • Airsoft Megastore also interviewed Sean at Spartan Imports – an Airsoft Megastore partner. Sean showed us some not-yet-released airsoft AEGs, including SR series and Magpul airsoft sniper rifles, some killer airsoft gas guns and also some insane new gas grenades.

  • Cliff at Umarex told us a bit about Elite Force, including their warranty and service program. Umarex focuses on high end and competitive airsoft scene and they have a lot of cool new products including high quality airsoft gun bbs.

  • Jim at KWA showed us around some rad new airsoft pistols. We were super excited to check out the ERG – electric recoil gun – exclusively licensed to Magpul. This exciting new series comes in three types: PTS CQB, PTS Scout mid-length, and PTS SPR long-rifle… and they are looking to launch in summer 2012.

  • And now for something completely different... we got the opportunity to play with new (and always entertaining) Zombie guns from Double Star – featuring crazy add-ons like holographic sites, tactical bottle opener and chainsaw, for added zombie carnage. Mike barely escaped with his limbs intact.

Check out the Shot Show Round Up at Airsoft Megastore TV to learn more about all the latest airsoft guns for 2012.
