How realistic are Airsoft Guns?
Even law enforcement officers are often unable to distinguish airsoft from real steel. Never take an airsoft gun out in public, doing so WILL endanger your life.

How do airsoft guns operate?
An airsoft gun can operate off one of any three principles. The most common and cost effective are our line of spring guns. Spring guns must be cocked before each shot, usually by racking the slide or cocking handle (rifles). Cocking the gun compresses a spring attached to a piston, when the trigger is pulled, the piston flies forward, compresses the air in the cylinder and fires the BB at an average velocity of 210 FPS. Most people start off with spring guns and often move up to gas blowback guns. Gas blowback pistols use HFC22 or Green Gas. Green gas is loaded into the bottom of the magazine (shown left) along with the ammunition. This design allows for rapid magazine changes to replace both expended rounds and propellant. GBB guns operate in a manner very similar to real firearms. After inserting the magazine you cock the gun to chamber the first round. Upon pulling the trigger, gas is released to propel the BB out of the barrel at an average of 275 FPS. A small amount of gas is also captured to force the slide back, resetting the hammer and chambering the next round. This is a very efficient system allowing you to fire the gun as fast as you can pull the trigger. Electric powered guns use a gear and piston system to offer semi and sometimes fully automatic operation.

Can I use standard .177 pellets or 4.5mm copper BBs?
NO! This type of ammunition will not work at all in any of our guns and may cause damage to the gun itself.

Which gun is the BEST?
The MP5 SD3 is our most popular spring rifle while the M9 remains the most popular spring pistol. The Mini AEGs and Desert Eagle Pistol AEG are the most popular battery powered guns. The M11 is by far the coolest of the gas blowback guns with the M9 following as a close second.

What kind of protection do I need to play airsoft?
Full face protection is REQUIRED for any airsoft sporting activity. Airsoft guns can cause serious eye injury and shatter teeth if unprotected. We also recommend using neck protection, elbow and knee guards.

I live outside of the US, can I still buy airsoft guns?
No. At this point we only ship within the United States mainland, not even Alaska and Hawaii.

How is an airsoft gun distinguished from a real gun?
As required by federal law, the first 5mm of the barrel on any airsoft gun has a blaze orange marking affixed to it, or has it molded in orange plastic. Removal, alteration, or destruction of the orange markings is both dangerous, and a violation of federal law.
