o rings are little rings of rubber (of MANY different sizes) that are used (in terms of a paintball gun) to seal the air inside the marker as well as help guide the air where to go. they also keep the moving parts of your marker protected from grinding against the inside of the body of the marker and creating damage. in some cases they are used to hold a hopper on tightly as well.

for the most part sir i concur, personally iv never seen plastic rings, plenty of rubber ones but in my experience the best (and most expensive) rings are made from polyurethane
