Airsoft BB guns - how they work

Airsoft BB Guns are spring loaded air guns that fire little plastic "BB" pellets. They can fire up to about 100m, although most bb guns tend to lose accuracy after about 30 foot or so, but that is enough power to have a lot of fun.

Spring or Air Airsoft bb guns

They are true to scale and some are true to weight. Excellent for collecting and recreational use. Because of their maintenance free design and their affordability, these are excellent entry level AirSoft guns. This class of AirSoft products is very durable and have extremely low failure rate. These pistols are styled after popular handguns and are very detailed. They shoot 6mm soft air bullets which are fed from the clip. The clip pops in just like the real ones. They shoot 6mm bullets. Most models shoot above or around 220 fps and have an average accuracy range of over 85 feet. They are great for learning how to target shoot. You will love the heavy feel and the realistic qualities of most of these shooting machines. They are spring-cocked and shoot very hard (But not dangerously hard mind you). Most guns have the "Hop Up" system, which simply means that there is a drag in the top of the barrel that puts a back spin on the pellet which makes it fly further and straighter.

Electric Airaoft bb (or AEG) guns

The Electric AirSoft BB Guns incorporate a battery powered motor, transmission gearing, and circuit board onto the air piston assembly. Instead of manually cocking the piston head for every shot, the motor and gears perform the cocking action and release of the piston at the moment of trigger pull. The speed at which the motor and gears perform the entire action is within a fraction of a second, allowing for near instantaneous firing response. The circuit board is hooked up directly to the trigger pull for each shot. A constant pull on the trigger with the selector dial at full allows for a constant electrical stream from the battery to the motor, keeping the entire firing system in continuous motion until pressure is let off of the trigger.

Gas powered airsoft bb guns

The Gas Airsoft BB Guns run on a gas driven mechanism. Low-temperature carbon dioxide (CO2), environment safe Freon, or Green Gas are the most popular of gases used. All models are manufactured to a high degree of surface detail and dimension, these are for the more discerning collector.
