Airsoft Elite BBs

I have heard these are quite good BBs and was wondering where they can be purchased in Canada. I visited popular retailers like 007, buyairsoft.ca, etc. but couldn't find them. I was on Airsoft Elite's website and saw them, but couldn't find a price or the option to purchase them and assumed they are just a supplier.

So yeah, are there any good retailers in Ontario? I also saw them on a US website but is the customs import limit of 5,000 rounds actually enforced? I figure it would only be worth it order from the US if I had too and if I ordered a large quantity to cut down on shipping costs. Thankssssss!!

Elites are no better then BB bastards or Bioval or Armists.

Personally I prefer the BBBastards and frankly I'd rather give my money to a Canadian and buy them at my local field and save on shipping.

But thats just me.

I believe Xtreme Tactics buys them in "rice bags" and splits them up in house (into ziplock bags) to save you money. Try that. I assume they use a digital scale with a count feature so you may get a little more or less (I'd say +/- 10-15 BB's for both human errors and the digital scale approximating the count from weight) but honestly who really counts BB's when they're not even half a cent each?

Also Metal Tech Mfg. rebrands Airsoft Elite BB's and sells them under their "house brand" (Metal Tech). Just to let you know.

gords pricing is pretty good.
he normally sells 4000 rds at around 21 or 22 a bag.
i've been using his house bbs for 6 years and have never ever had an issue with them.

5000 rounds is for real ammunition, not plastic BB's.

Not sure, I cant find them either, although my local shop carries them at a good price.

AFAIK "Metal Tech Mfg." was a subsidary/division of "The Tactical Shop Corp." it seems as though now they're aggregating the shops into one brand name/store front.
