Airsoft chronographs are used to measure the Feet Per Second (FPS) and Metres Per Second (MPS) of your airsoft gun, which is important for adhering to airsoft site limits.
Accurate & Reliable Testing Using Our Chronographs
Many airsoft sites have FPS limits to maintain safety on the field. Using a chronograph is the only way to accurately test and measure your airsoft gun’s speed, ensuring it meets the legal requirements.
Not only that, but the UK legislation with regard to airsoft guns as firearms also states that your gun must not exceed the legal FPS limit, or it will be deemed a ‘real’ firearm and, therefore, illegal to own.
Whether you just want to make sure you’re prepared before a game day or you’re an avid technician that’s just installed some fresh upgrade parts, each chronograph has its own unique features for every player.
Our airsoft chronograph selection can be trusted to provide accurate and reliable testing, making sure your airsoft gun is performing as it should.

A chronograph is a device used to measure the velocity of a projectile. It’s commonly used in airsoft to measure the FPS or MPS of your gun, ensuring it meets legal requirements.
Chronographs use two sensors, one at the beginning of the track and one at the end. When a BB passes through them, it triggers a light beam which measures the time of travel between the two sensors, calculating the velocity with which the BB has travelled.
Airsoft sites have restrictions in place to ensure safety is maintained on the field. Plus, the UK legislation classifies any guns exceeding the legal FPS limit as a ‘real’ firearm, making it illegal to own. A chronograph will ensure your gun is kept within the legal limit.
The FPS limit in airsoft will vary depending on the site and field you’re playing on. Generally speaking, it’s usually 350 FPS, but this will also vary depending on gun type. It’s best to contact the site you’ll be visiting beforehand to check.
FPS stands for Feet Per Second, while MPS stands for Metres Per Second. Both measure the speed at which something is travelling but with different units of measurement. For airsoft, 1 FPS is equal to 0.3048 MPS.
