Makeshift 6mm Airsoft Pellets?

Unread postAuthor: kuya » Thu Jan 17, 2008 10:48 am

Hi, I'm Australian and as most of you know.... Airsoft is banned here. I was just wondering where I could get the 6mm Airsoft pellets into Australia, or what I could use to replicate them.

Beads apparently, there are Aussies on here (Thrusto etc.) who can give you better details.

I'm sure you've heard of TradeMe, it's now Aussie owned, but the sellers do ship to Aussie.

A backup option is 6mm steel ball bearings, a little more expensive, but if you have a big magnet, quite easy to find and reuse.

Will it pass through customs. Apparantly they're getting stricter on the pellets as well =/. Atleast from what i heard.

Only one way to find out :wink: Tell them that you were going to drill a hole in them and use them to make a pretty necklace!

OMG I got mentioned :shock: :D :D :D

Yeah Beads are good, i've used a variation of christmas decorations from cheapo stores, to girls bead necklaces (gave the cashier a weird reason for us buying like the whole load of them :P ) Lol I'm sure you'll find something, just look around, or order them of the internet.

Hope this Helps, Thursto.

Don't they have little holes in them? 0.o
Anyway this afternoon my mom came back from some buisness-trip from the states and brought me a bucket of 5000 bb's with no problems (I live in the Netherlands, everything that LOOKS like a gun is banned)
I mean, plastic balls with a diameter of 6mm isn't like...dangerous.....(unless fired from some crazy vortex...but anyway) You should be able to get them from other countries.
