arigun with plastic bb ?

Hi ! Everyone. First I'm really sorry if this question has been asked or discussion already, but honestly I'm person who rarely ask question, better use FAQ to find the answer, oops ! couldn't find the answer on that.

I have an airgun that use 4.5 mm steel BBs with 12g CO2 shot 300 fps. Now I'm really broke to buy another WE 1911, so I found out the solution instead of using the 4.5 mm steel BBs, why should I use the 4.5 mm Plastic BBs same as the 6mm BBs that we use on the airsoft, also this gun doesn't shot over FPS limit too when we use 4.5 mm plastic BBs.

So my question is, Will this gun be allowed in the the games ? and if not why ?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers !
KND

It shoots metal, I think that's all that needs to be said; a metal bb is heavier than a plastic one, it will deliver more energy thus more pain. I wouldn't like taking a plastic bb to the lips... but a metal one?!

Yeah know, Im thinking since those airguns shoot pretty hard with metal BBs their gona shoot even harder with plastic. So your gona put out a really hard fps.

Im gona go ahead and say no they would not be allowed, but thats me.
You would actually have to ask the field owner and game organiser and your fellow players that one.

Can't see that being allowed man. The fps may be a non-leathal measure but it still isn't an airsoft gun, I know I personally wouldn't allow it. Airsoft may shoot at the same velocity, however airsoft BB's have a much larger diameter of which wouldn't allow it to penetrate skin. I wouldn't use it.

If you can't afford to buy an airsoft pistol, you can't afford to use an airsoft pistol.

When you start reducing the diameter of the round like that, you're also affecting pound per square inch figures. You might end up with something that'll pierce skin more readily than 6mm.

Now, sure what weight it is, but what I knew is it said 4.5 mm steel BB.
My question is Is it possible to use the airgun in the game with 4.5 mm Plastic BB in the game ? Thanks

Okay, if you have a 421mg bb traveling at 91.44m/s, it should have 1.76 joules of energy.

Haha, sorry; posted after you did.
4.5mm plastic bbs and co2... a little costly, no?

All the posts have been about the possibility of using plastic BBs. No.

I may have misread, but if you already have a 1911, why not use what you have?

Thanks everyone for reply. Really appreciate it.
I do have 2 GBB already, but I also have 3 airguns and it's sitting down in my closet, can't do anything with it. That's why I start thinking some idea to use it. Thanks.

Well, you can always shoot cans with the airgun, just not people. =P
