Airsoft guns are replicas of traditional guns and shoot plastic pellets. Airsoft guns come in a variety of forms, including pistols, rifles, shotguns, and so on. They are also available for different levels of experience, with the most advanced airsoft guns being quite complex. When purchasing an airsoft gun, your choice of gun should reflect your goals. If you plan to use your airsoft gun in competition, you will likely need a more advanced version that does not require manual cocking. If you simply want an airsoft gun to use as target practice, you can opt for a less advanced version. If you are an experienced marksman and need a high-quality airsoft gun, read on for information on three tremendous advanced varieties.
This 6mm airsoft gun from Echo is for advanced marksmen. It comes in at nearly seven pounds and 29 inches, shooting at a velocity of an incredible 385 feet per second. You can load up to 300 rounds at a time into your Echo 1 MTC1 AEG Airsoft Rifle, giving you plenty of ammo. The smooth bore barrel is of high quality, and the buttpad is adjustable. Recommended for use with 0.2 to 0.25g pellets, the airsoft gun is made of metal and ABS plastic. Great for skirmishing, the Echo 1 MTC1 AEG Airsoft Rifle with Retractable Stock has a manual safety, but it does not come with a scope. Best of all, the gun can be used in semi-automatic or automatic modes, giving you flexibility while in an intense competition. The Echo 1 MTC1 AEG Airsoft Rifle with Retractable Stock retails for $200.
Another airsoft rifle, the King Arms Thompson M1A1 Metal AEG is great for skirmishing. The 6mm gun can shoot even faster than the previous airsoft gun, clocking in at 400 feet per second. This provides you the ability to hit targets from a very far distance. Like the Echo variety, this airsoft rifle can be used in both semi-automatic and automatic modes. The 6.3-pound gun holds just 60 pellets, though, so it may be a better option for target practice than some other rifles. The full metal gun uses .25g pellets, has a manual safety, and comes with an adjustable rear sight. For master marksmen who need incredible aim, the King Arms Thompson M1A1 Metal AEG is a great option. It runs for $180.
If you are seeking a pistol rather than an airsoft rifle, look no further than the TSD Tactical WE Model 08 Long Barrel. Retailing at $129, it is one of the pricier airsoft pistols on the market, but also perhaps the best. The gun comes with an adjustable hop up, adjustable sights, and an extra long barrel. All of these traits add up to deadly accuracy. The gun uses propane as a power source, shooting 6mm airsoft BBs. Capable of shooting at 350 feet per second, the full metal pistol is capable of holding just 15 rounds, making it better for target practice than competition use.
