If you want to buy them yourself. Get it over seas or from Hobbypartz - free ship with 50.00 minimum order.

As for BB's ASGi if you buy in bulk - ~100.00 minimum.

Do Not Buy FireFox Lipo....cheap crappy Lipo's

I order from Hobbyking's USA warehouse, cause my free shipping from their Hong Kong warehouse took 3 weeks (September, 2011). The USA warehouse prices are very similair to the HK warehouse prices, and shipping took 3 business days and cost $7 for 3 2250mah 7.4v brick lipos IIRC.

If anyone wants to get the BB's that Trevor used to sell at the Facility, you can get the directly from Airsoft Battle Zone. (ABZ) They are based out of Eau Claire, WI. Your best bet is to buy by the case. Ends up at about $7.50 for 4000 last time I bought. But, NOTE: a case is like 100,000 BB's. Might be great idea for teams or fields to purchase this way. The last time I bought one of these cases, I got it for $190. These are .20g polished BB's in BULK. Not in 4000 ct bags. (may be available that way though)

If there is anyone interested in splitting a case, let me know. P.S. I own a precision counting scale to help make the split. Takes seconds to count out 4000

BTW hobbyking does offer nominal dimensions, if its any consolation.

Evike sells 25-kg bulk packs of high-quality bb's (125,000 bb's for .2's) for $220.00, and they just come in a huge rice bag.
That's equal to $7.04 per 4000. If anyone wants the links, here they are:

.2's ($7.04 per 4000, ~125,000 bb's)

-White bb's: http://www.evike.com/product_info.php?c ... s_id=27048

-Black bb's: http://www.evike.com/product_info.php?c ... s_id=31576

.23's(~$8.10 per 4000, ~108,695 bb's)

-White bb's: http://www.evike.com/product_info.php?c ... s_id=31274

.25's ($8.80 per 4000, ~100,000 bb's)

-White bb's: http://www.evike.com/product_info.php?c ... s_id=27049

.28's (~$9.86 per 4000, ~89,285 bb's)

Ellusion, those Evike "matrix" bb's are completely hit and miss since different manufacturers make different batches. I bought some when i first started and had no problems. 2nd order I bought and all of them were crap, failed the "crush" test with a loud pop sound (air pockets) and they wouldn't feed out of any midcaps I had (G&G, KA, G&P, MAG, Etc.). I would advise against them, buy quality bb's to save on hassle. KWA/KSC, G&G, Madbull, etc.

Good to know! That's the kind of review/warning I like to hear before dumping $200+. Is there anybody else out there with bulk BB pricing? Guges... Master TCAA... anyone?
