Best Answer

If you are asking about traditional BB guns, Not Airsoft. Then the answer is basically one size .177 Cal. At one time the BB's were .175 Cal but that was in the past and the difference is so minimal that it does not matter.

Today's BB are made from Steel, Copper coated or Lead.

One Size Fits All.

Can BB guns shoot airsoft pellets as soft as airsoft guns?

That depends on the power of your BB gun and ammo size. If your BB gun uses 6mm BBs, then yes, it can shoot normal airsoft BBs as well. However, BB guns are usually too powerful for the plastic airsoft BBs. If you fired a plastic airsoft BB in an average powered BB gun, the airsoft BB would break. This usually happens in your gun's barrel. If the BB cracks, it can cause internal damage to the gun. This is not good. Common problems that result from BBs breaking inside of a gun are- Loss of Accuracy, Loss of Power, and Loss of the gun's reliability. So the answer to your question is yes. You can fire Airsoft BBs out of a BB gun if they are the right side. However, it is not recommended that you do this because it can cause a lot of long term problems with you BB gun.

Does the sears bb gun use a different size bb then the modern bb?

There WERE BB guns that used an .11 caliber BB, instead of the common .177 caliber, but unsure if Sears may have sold some of them. A standard BB will not fit in the barrel of the .11 caliber guns. Unfortunately, do not know of any company still making the miniatures. It is possible that individual pellets of birdshot MAY be usable- #6 is about .12 caliber, so would be smaller than that. MOST Sears BB guns used regular BBs.

Can you use 12 g airsoft bbs for a gun that uses 2 gs?

Yes. .12 grams is the weight of the BB, not the size. Almost all airsoft guns use 6mm BBs. .20 gram BBs are heavier and reduce distance and velocity, but increase accuracy. .12 gram BBs will fire with more velocity, but there will be more spin on the BB and less accuracy.

What do airsoft guns shoot out?

Airsoft guns mainly shoot 6mm plastic BBs. Lightweight or cheap BBs may shatter on impact. There are many different weights for BBs which normally range from .12g or .48g. BBs can also come in different colors which allow for different functions. Black BBs, normally the main choice for mil-sim players because neither the shooter or the target can normally see the BBS. This is pretty much the same case with all dark BBs. White BBs allow for the shooter to easily see his or her BBs and so can the target, allowing the shooter to adjust his shot and the target to dodge the BBs. There's also glow in the dark BBs, which will glow with the aide of a tracer suppressor. Many mil-sim players who are conducting an operation at night load 4 black BBs then one tracer BB, and repeat the process. For daytime use, they load 4 black BBs then a white BB. Airsoft guns also shoot 8mm BBs, though this is very uncommon and mainly used in 40mm grenade launcher (basically an undermounted shotgun designed to look like an m203 launcher and grenade) rounds so that there is the best chance of hitting a target.
