What are Airsoft Guns

What Are Airsoft guns

Airsoft rifles and pistols are manufactured in Japan , Hong Kong & Taiwan. They are full 1:1 scale which adds to the realism and feel of these well crafted BB guns.

Nearly all of the guns fire a 6mm bio-degradeable ball normally called a BB.


The fully automatic guns (AEG's) are operated by a fully re-chargeable ni-cad or nimh battery. There are no external hoses or wires to interfere with game play or shooting, everything is hidden within the gun itself.

Pistols work on a gas mechanism (Gas Blow Back) where the gas stored in the gun fires the BB and operates the slide in the same way as the real thing.

Each rifle and gas handgun has a device called the HOP-UP system. This device will place a backward spin on the ball giving the ball more lift and stability in flight.
