Airsoft has established itself as a highly preferred game both for relaxing with friends and for acquiring tactical skills and safe handling of weapons. Airsoft pistols are part of each player's equipment and now we will find out what are their features and parameters, how to choose the right one and what types are available in the range of Zarimex gun store.
What are Airsoft pistols
For exactly describing what this type of weapon for safe shooting and play is, we will say that it is a high-quality replica of the real firearms. However, Airsoft solutions do not work with real ammunition, but have different pneumatic mechanisms for firing plastic balls. They do not belong to the category of firearms and no special permit is required for their use and possession.
What types are there
Regarding the firing mechanisms, they basically devide into:
- Spring Airsoft pistols - this type utilizes the power of a spring to propel BBs down the barrel of the gun. This is the simplest and cheapest option of this type and requires manual reloading after each shot;
- Electric Airsoft pistols - typically come with a battery charger and a rechargeable battery. Most electric airsoft guns have selective fire capabilities, in which the gun can switch between full auto, semiautomatic, and single fire modes;
- Gas Airsoft pistols - the most popular and preferred version of Airsoft pistols. The shot is fired under the influence of the pressure of the gas, which is carbon dioxide (CO2) or green gas (Green Gas). For this purpose, special gas cylinders weighing 12 g are placed or filled from a vial.
In the Zarimex gun shop you will find all three types, the most preferred being 4.5 and 6 mm caliber, and among the favorite brands are Beretta, Glock, Heckler Koch, etc.
How to choose the best
The choice of Airsoft pistols is based on your goals and preferences. For example, if you use this type of weapon as a secondary weapon, it is advisable to focus on the electric or spring version, as they are affordable and ideal for such a purpose.
But if you are a supporter of maximum realism and you want your Airsoft pistol to resemble its true analogue as much as possible in terms of weight, design, recoil and power, then you should focus on gas models.
