Re-usable First Strike Style Test rounds

Anyone ever use these? I'm curious how they shoot compared to a first strike round. could be interesting for doing some barrel testing.

They used to be made bye rap4. Only thing that they are useful for is testing the function of your marker "feeding and cycling stuff like that" they are useless for target practice as they are different in diameter, fin angle, and weight so flight pattern is not the same as a fs round

I hate that they sell stuff like this...

I play at a lot of public fields where it is bring your own paint, and with the amount of players that "cheat" by upping their fps way above safe speeds, once they get hidden in the woods... I can just see some of these same losers buying these and shooting people with them...

Having "hard" rounds out there, is just a bad idea... As eventually they will end up being fired at someone by accident. (murphy's law and all that).


Or on purpose, cause the kid thinks it would be "funny".

been shot by gumballs twice - but unfortunately you have todeal with A-holes like that in any game/sport


I just like them for testing but if they are not the same spec as first strike, doesn't really serve any purpose

People can be putzes no matter what activities/games they play. If someone has a hard-on for hurting people, they will find a way to get off. At least with these they will only be able to shoot around 10 shots before the mag runs out and you can call them out.

I doubt anyone involved in paintball just to hurt people would be willing to A) buy an fsr enabled gun, B) search through hours of paintball related websites to come across these and c) sneak them into a game, when they could just do airsoft drive by's in a neighborhood.

Here is the previous discussion threads. Lots of info and good contribution by MCB regulars and experts. The Ebay seller is a fellow MCB, so if you have a need for this item, I encourage you to buy from this seller.
