SITE FPS LIMITS 

Only Airsoft Guns may be used & all projectiles must be of the 6mm plastic variety

All Airsoft gun MUST go through the chronographing process.

ALL Weapons: 340fps max.

All airsoft guns will be chronographed with site magazine & 0.2gm bb at the start of an event and are subject to random chrono testing at any time throughout the day. We reserve the right NOT allow the use of any RIF/IF over the FPS limit. Some areas of the game area are single shot only, therefore weapons that are incapable of firing on single shot will not be allowed to be fired in those areas.

The spring or gas that a player is using when they passed the chronograph at under 340fps is the spring or gas the player must continue to use for the rest of the day.

Those players who try to defraud the chronograph or fail to take their airsoft guns to the chronograph may be ejected from site without refund & banned from all Zed Adventures events.
