Sig Sauer P226

— Posted by Infinity on 5:26 pm on Mar. 28, 2002

Hi, I’ve got a Sig Sauer P226 air spring 6mm bb gun that i’m getting bored with, so i was wondering if anyone knows how i could modifiy it to shoot futher? Also is there anything else i can fire out of it instead of the shite plastic bb’s? (are there 6mm metal bb’s?)

Thanxs in advance.

P.S. I’m new to guns of any kind so if theres anyone that could help me out with enjoying my new hobby more, it would be very helpfull.

well, your sig airsoft gun wont be able to shoot any further, unless it had hop-up. you cant add this to your spring gun, it has to come with it. also about your bb’s, there ARE 6mm metal bbs, just look on ebay for “metal airsoft bb’s” or look up “airsoft”; the thing is, the heaiver the bb, the shorter it will travel. there are different weights for the bbs, .12g, .20g, .25g, .30g, .33g, and finally the .90g(around this weight) metal bb. my advice is to get a gas gun. i have a gas beretta and it shoots .12g bbs at 360 FPS.

Infinity, hop-up is what makes the bb go further than other spring air guns. it basically gives the bb backspin so it can travel further.

I make bb’s that have a sewing needle sticking out of it. Clamp the bb down, heat up the end of the needle which isn’t sharp and stick it in the bb and leave to cool. These are wicked for powerful guns, the only bad thing is you have to muzzle load them.
