Bioval “Golf ball” styled BB due out end 2009

Herman Boer of Airsoft Assist has sent in bioval’s news of a new BB they have coming out next year:

CEO of BIOVAL Technologies in Switserland Stefano Valentino introduced today another new project; the golf ball BBB, also named BIOVAL BBBDIMPLEX. Available end 2009, beginning 2010. Official press release:

image Hi,

Here are the latest tests we have run with the BBB DIMPLEX. I have also included the drawings of our first prototype. I have eliminated all the technical references from the drawings.

The tests were executed at the 100m underground rifle shooting range in Sarganz, Switzerland. So wind was not a factor. We used a stock Tokyo Marui VSR-10 Pro Sniper Version with a 6.1mm tight bore high performance Teflon coated barrel. Manufacturer specifications of this gun are MOA of 4cm from 10 meter range and maximum range is 50 meters without upgrades. The new barrel gave us slightly better performance than the stock.

The rifle was bolted to a bench rest so that it could not move at all. We used a barrel laser (it replaces the bolt assembly) to zero the rifle precisely in the centre of our target. Exactly 100 shots were fired for each of the 3 tests for a total of 300 shots of BBB 0.20g and 300 shots of the BBBDIMPLEX.

The 1st test was to check for an accuracy difference between normal BBB 0.20g and the BBBDIMPLEX. A paper target was placed at 10 meters and changed after every 10 shots were fired. The rifle was laser zeroed after every change of target. The results represent the average distance measured from the center of the target (where the laser dot landed) of every group of 10 shots fired. We achieved the TM stock specifications of the rifle using normal BBB 0.20g and improved that considerably using the BBBDIMPLEX.

The 2nd and 3rd test was designed to check for a distance difference between normal BBB 0.20g and the BBBDIMPLEX. One group of 200 shots (100 BBB 0.20g and 100 BBBDIMPLEX) fired without Hop Up and the other group of 100 shots fired with Hop Up(100 BBB 0.20g and 100 BBBDIMPLEX). Measurements were taken after every group of ten shots and then averaged out. Therefore, the results represent the average maximum distance each of the bbs travelled for every group of 10 fired. Again the TM stock specifications were achieved with the BBB 0.20g and a considerable improvement was noticed with the BBBDIMPLEX.We are working to refine our design, material and weight of the BBBDIMPLEX to achieve optimal results. Stand by …

Best Regards,

Stefano Valentino
