Airsoft gun at a paintball game?

For starters this is just to satisfy my curiosity, but has anyone ever used an airsoft gun at a paintball game with the hellfire paintball bbs?

If so what was your experience with it and what were people's opinions? Any information you can provide I would very much be interested in, thanks again in advance

Terrible idea. Either you'll get breakage inside your gun or the ball won't burst once it hits it's target.

I do know however that some milsim paintballers use airsoft pistols as secondaries for engaging at close range.

I know it's a bad idea, I am really just looking for people's experience with it mainly.

airsoft guns are simply not at all designed to use paintballs.
If they tear up on your hop rubber, they'll clog the barrel, next shot will jam, and if you're in full auto or firing semi too fast to notice, it'll strip your piston.

speaking from experience, unless you're using them in a cheap springer that you dont mind breaking/tossing away. stay away from them.

If you're playing paintball, buy a paintball gun.

Paintball rules and insurance require your gun to shoot at 280fps regardless if it is .68, .50 or 6mm. At that velocity, you will have no impact energy with a 6mm.

Yes you can use paintball bbs, just turn off the hop up and lob your shots like a paintball guns. Players shooting regular .68 paintballs will destroy players with 6mm paintball balls.

So there's a velocity limit not a muzzle energy limit for paintball?

yes, its fps based.
I played at wasaga back when the fps limit was 240 or some such thing.
so you'd need a s90 spring and to turn off your hopup. and maybe a wide bore barrel....
