First Time Airsoft Gun Buyer

Now that you made the first step into the exiting world of Airsoft Guns, you need to educate yourself to make the best selection !, read below, there are different types of airsoft gun products to choose from and I bet there is one for you to buy!

Mini and Pistol Electric Airsoft Guns

The Mini and Pistol Electric Airsoft guns, are replicas of actual rifles and submachine guns made into toys at a smaller scale except the pistols are the actual size. The Mini Electric Airsoft Guns are powered by a battery operated motor to perform the action. Holding the trigger turns the Mini Electric Gun to a fully automatic Machine Gun.

Spring Airsoft Guns

Spring powered airsoft guns (often called "springers" ) are single-shot devices that use potential energy stored in a spring to launch a  pellet down the barrel of the gun. You must cock a spring gun prior to each shot much like you would a real shotgun or bolt-action rifle. This is typically achieved by pulling back the slide, which in turn compresses the spring and makes the gun ready to fire. Because of this, these guns are incapable of automatic or semi-automatic fire.

Spring Airsoft Rifles

Spring powered airsoft rifles are single-shot devices that use potential energy stored in a spring to launch a pellet down the barrel of the rifle. You must cock a spring rifle prior to each shot much like you would a real shotgun or bolt-action rifle. This is typically achieved by pulling back the bolt, which in turn compresses the spring and makes the gun ready to fire. Because of this, these guns are incapable of automatic or semi-automatic fire.

Gas Airsoft Guns

The gas airsoft guns use pressurized gas to propel pellets. These guns are capable of automatic and semi-automatic operation. The most common gases used are propane (usually referred to as "green gas" by airsoft players) and HFC134a refrigerant.  Less commonly used gases include CO2 and nitrogen. Gas powered airsoft guns use pressurized gas to propel pellets. These guns are capable of automatic and semi-automatic operation. The most common gases used are propane (usually referred to as "green gas" by airsoft players) and HFC134a refrigerant. Less commonly used gases include CO2 and nitrogen.

Entry Level AEG ( Automatic Electric Guns )

The electric airsoft guns typically use a bank of rechargeable batteries to drive the electric motor, which cycles an internal piston/spring assembly in order to launch pellets. Automatic and semi-automatic operation is possible which gives these guns the popular name "automatic electric guns" or AEG. These guns often attain muzzle velocities of 200 to 400 feet per second (60 to 100 m/s) and fire rates of 300 to 800 rounds per minute and are by far the most common and widely available airsoft guns in serious competition use today.
