I'm just getting back into smoothbore BB guns and I see mention online of "copper BBs". Are there really solid copper BBs or are people just misidentifying copper plated steel? Thanks in advance, Joe

Hi Joe , there is Smart Shot , it's copper coated lead BB's so that you don't get your eye shot out from hitting hard objects  , the guns need to have a spring or something in the guns as many use a magnet which won't work , your 100-38 uses a magnet so they won't work , I use Daisy zincs and they work well and there are some other brands but just stay with steel BB's in that gun , I use the Smart Shot in many of my replica pistols that have the removable shells as the guns all seem to shoot high and this brings them right down and hit a bit harder on the cans .

Thanks, yeah I knew about copper plated shot from shotguning, never thought about magatism, my recolection of my childhood M-38 was that teh BB would roll out if pointed downward but my memory of 70+ years ago is probably not very reliable. Now what were we talking about?

Nope , it will roll down and be held by the magnet , you do have to wait a second fir it to roll all the way but shouldn't roll out he barrel until it gets shot out , your gun may have had some gunk blocking the end of the barrel /breech , let us all know  how she shoots .

 Thanks, will do. Unfortunately my hands shake so badly these days I'm not sure I can give any gun a fair evaluation. I may be able to scrunch up on the bench rest enough to get a reasonably solid hold but that would seem to defeat the "artillery hold" system of shooting, we'll see, my gun hasn't even arrived as yet.
