Okay, this may be a stupid question but Ive been thinking about it for a while, please dont laugh! Can 0.2g bb's be reusable provided if they dont deform?

hmmmm

I would not recommend reusing floor BB's as they get dirty, cracked and what have you.

Nooo... Do not do that.

BBs are probably the cheapest but most neccesary part of airsoft. Just buy a bag of 5000 for around 20-30$ and you'll be set. Re-using BBs can have a very bad effect on your AEG/GBB or what have you.

Just so I don't have to start another thread, I'll ask this here.

For cleaning/lubing up AEG's, would CLP work? I know you can buy the silicon stuff at stores or online, but I've gallons of CLP at work so would be easier for me to just get it there - but as I said, is it a good idea to use it on airsoft rifles or is it a no-no?

CLP will eat the rubber on your hop-up ,best to use silicone ! I use CLP just on the outer barrel and silicone on the rest !

I guess I could use CLP still on metal parts that don't have contact with stuff like the hop-up or any of the firing mechanisms, would be good for keeping is nice and clean and rust free.

I'd just avoid CLP all together.
