Things I liked:

BEST BUY for BB Air Gunners, he Shouted!!!! Excellent value for price.!! Absolutely speeds up horizontal mag loading.

Things I would have changed:

Would like to see an additional LARGER unit.

What others should know:

A little tricky to learn how to properly ''squeeze'' it 'open' while balancing mag BUT once mastered, I can load 18 bb's in my CP99 in less than 1 sec.

Things I liked:

I like the loader.

Things I would have changed:

These are clearly a larger diameter, than advertised. Will not function at all in Sig P365. They are worthless to me. Does PyramydAir want to refund the purchase price to me ?

What others should know:

Do not buy for use in a Sig P365.

    Things I liked:

    Bought them for the speedloader. Wanted one for each of my six pistols. The bases are a bit loose, but two or three layers of electrical tape on the clear section snugs them up so they're secure in a belt pouch.

    Things I would have changed:

    One thing that bugs me is that you'll get some Marksman BBs from other vendors that have some kind of tarnish on them. It's ugly, but doesn't seem to affect their functionality in the Marksman pistols. Otherwise, just my two cents in response to all the criticism of them jamming in other manufacturer's guns.

    What others should know:

    I don't have a problem with the BB diameter since I only use them in my Marksman 2000 and 1018 and have no issues. Fact is, my Daisy 340 came in a kit with targets and a tube of 350 Daisy "premium" BBs, and one of those "premium" Daisy BBs jammed in the 340's barrel after less than 10 shots, so even staying with the same brand of BBs as the gun isn't always going to be the cure. Crosman Copperheads have worked in all six of my pistols and their 760 Pumpmaster with no jams, so I've just dumped the extra Marksman BBs into a washed and well dried Master of Mixes sweetened lime juice bottle (available at your local liquor store) to refill the two Marksman speedloaders, then fill the speedloaders I'm using for the Crosman and Daisy pistols with Copperheads. When the Marksman BBs run out then those speedloaders will get filled with the universally well-functioning Copperheads too.

    Things I liked:

    The speed loader

    What others should know:

    Not sure If it's the coating but it seems a bit bigger than 4.5mm because it doesn't fit the Sig 1911 Spartan, I used them on Steel Strike UX ,or maybe I did something wrong.

    Things I liked:

    I bought a lot of these a couple years ago and have never had a problem. When speedloader is empty, put any kind of BBs back in you want. Honestly once you get the hang of the loader, it Really speeds things up.

    Things I would have changed:

    You could sell the speedloader by itself. I have several, just use a label maker or marker.

    What others should know:

    Each Magazine will have its own technique for filling. Be patient.

    BB's are OK to size & fit.

    Things I would have changed:

    The Speedloader is Horrible to use.

    What others should know:

    I've found that the BB's are Inconsistent in size, buy a little higher price BB's.

    Things I liked:

    the dispenser is a novel idea

    Things I would have changed:

    the B-Bs should not be sold! .....see below

    What others should know:

    BUYER BEWARE...Unfortunately these B-Bs are too large for most air pistols. They seriously jam in the barrel. I measured the diameter using a micrometer and found them to be exactly 0.177" However I also measured the diameter of premium DAISY & UMAREX B-Bs and they are 0.173" and they NEVER jam.

    Things I liked:

    The speed loader.

    Things I would have changed:

    These BB's are oversized and will get stuck in most barrels. Marksman should reduce the size of the BB's to industry standard or put a label on the packaging stating that they're ovwrsized.

    What others should know:

    I bought these several years ago and loved them. They shot great in everything and the speedloader was very handy. I recently lost my speedloader so I bought another and these current BB's are oversized. They jammed my DPMS which resulted in me having to disassemble it to repair. I tried dropping BB's down my other guns' barrels and they only fit in pellet guns. Pellets are typically .177 while BB's are .172-.174 even though the packaging may say .177. These marksman BB's are .177 and will get stuck in BB barrels but fit fine in pellet barrels. I whis they fit my DPMS and 1911 because these BB's do seem to be very high quality and consistent.

    Things I liked:

    The speed loader, although the quality control on this tube of altered plastic is horrendous- I now have two of them, and one I had to remove a nub at the working end so BBs would get through

    Things I would have changed:

    the size of these BBs - I've given up trying to find one of my airguns they don't jam.

    What others should know:

    Avoid these like the plague. They will jam just about every barrel out there. Why? As others report, they're just too damn big. I don't have the calipers to test that, but I do know I've now had to ramrod them out of five of my airguns, all different makers, so I've given up trying to find a barrel these work in.

    Things I liked:

    Clean and the rubber loader is cool.

    Things I would have changed:

    More for your money and a little more consistent sizing.

    What others should know:

    These work great out of 760 pump master. But they are bigger than normal and some may even be too big, but they serve a purpose in some guns with looser tolerances. I will buy more when I run out.

    Things I liked:

    BBs are properly sized to fit Daisy barrels. The larger diameter allows better accuracy and improved velocity. Diameter and concentricity is very consistent.

    Things I would have changed:

    Offer these in a bulk package. The included plastic loaders are nice, but I dont need one in every package. Waste of material and $$$

    What others should know:

    These bbs are several thousands larger than other companies product. Im sure they will cause problems in many guns. Check your bore diameter before firing.

    Rating 4.04.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    Increases velocity (about 10% on average) and potentially helps accuracy in barrels/guns that they fit.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make them 0.001" smaller. Make them more affordable- these cost as much as the Daisy Match Grade Avanti Ground Shot! Sell them in larger quantities and without the loader.

    What others should know:

    Before using these BBs, be sure to check that they will freely roll through the shot tube! I have used them in: several Daisy model 1938B Red Ryders, Daisy model 105B Buck, Daisy model 880 smoothbore and several other modified Daisy BB guns that all use current production Daisy model 25 shot tubes (the type that uses a magnet), I also found they work in a Crosman model 766 I have that has a rifled barrel. NOTE- This is not a blanket endorsement that the Marksman BBs will fit ALL guns of the types I just listed!!! Check each and every gun first.

    Things I liked:

    I purchased these along with the Umarex 40 xp bb gun and although they fit into the gun's magazine, they jammed. I had to breakdown the gun and it took about two hours to ramrod 4 bbs stuck in the barrel. They say .177 but they also didn't fit into a Walther bb gun that I purchased. Overall a very bad experience with this brand of bbs. Will never buy again.

    Things I liked:

    The loader, it is why I bought them.

    Things I would have changed:

    The size is too big, they JAM in many guns. They would be a great choice for a worn or worn out gun or one that has loose tolerances.

    What others should know:

    They Jammed both of my Legends M712's and I would exercise cation trying them in any gun you can't disassemble to clear.

    Rating 5.05.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    These BBs are larger than regular BBs I measured them to be a very consistent .176 compared to a sample of 4 other regular BBs that are less consistent and very from about .173 to .175. The tighter fit to the barrel produced the smallest grouping from my Daisy Mod 74 to about 1/2 the size of the others. I did not chrony them but the sound seemed to perhaps get a little more velocity from the tighter fit as well.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would not change anything these will be the only BBs I purchase from now on.

    What others should know:

    They may not be for everyone because they are larger than the industry standard, some guns may not like them or on semi autos they may have feeding issues but that is a try and see thing buying one bag to try them wont break the bank.
