Airsoft Gun Types

Spring Airsoft Guns

A spring BB airsoft gun incorporates a cock and fire mechanism that is incredibly simple to operate. It simply requires the operator to pull back the slide before each shot.

Furthermore, they’re much cheaper to run since they don’t require any batteries, typically used in Airsoft Sniper Rifles, or gas to operate.

We offer a range of spring airsoft guns that come in all shapes and sizes. Common sniper rifles from Socom Tactical include JG VSR / bar10 G-Spec Sniper, with scope, or the Action Army AAC T11 Sniper Rifle.

Electric Airsoft Guns

Electric Airsoft Guns, commonly known as AEGs, are usually the most common type of airsoft rifle amongst airsoft players.

Electric airsoft guns

An AEG is a battery-powered airsoft weapon that can be fired in fully-auto or semi. AEGs usually have a rechargeable battery that can be easily charged after each time the gun is used.

An AEG can fire an airsoft BB at a velocity that ranges between 280 to 350 FPS. It’s common for an electric mechanism to be used for airsoft assault rifles and for newcomers, starting with an electric airsoft gun is a great choice because they’re much easier to operate.

At Socom Tactical, we offer a range of AEGs that are incredibly popular across the UK. From the Valken ASL rifles to the Arthurian Airsoft Range. For more information on the best AEG for you, get in touch with our specialist staff.

Gas Airsoft Guns

A gas airsoft gun uses compressed gas to fire the airsoft bullet down the gun barrel. The majority of gas airsoft guns come in the form of a pistol. A gas airsoft gun is fired by magazines of CO2 cartridges that are used to fire the bullets.

Gas airsoft guns are typically the most realistic out of the three versions of a mechanism used for airsoft guns. Our range of popular airsoft pistols includes the popular WE G17 Gen 5 Gas Blowback Pistol  and the Action Army AAP-01 Assassin Pistol.

Airsoft guns are replica firearms that shoot small plastic pellets or BBs. They are designed to mimic real firearms in their appearance, weight, and functionality, but are not intended to cause serious harm. Airsoft guns are often used for recreational activities such as competitive games or training exercises.

Airsoft guns use compressed air or gas to propel small plastic pellets or BBs at a target. They typically use either electric, gas, or spring-powered mechanisms to fire the BBs. The pellets are usually 6mm in diameter and can travel at speeds of up to 500 feet per second.

While airsoft guns are designed to be non-lethal and generally safe, they can still cause injury if used improperly. It is important to always wear appropriate protective gear and use caution when handling airsoft guns. Airsoft guns should only be used in designated areas and with proper supervision.

Airsoft guns come in a variety of types and styles, including rifles, pistols, shotguns, and submachine guns. They can also be categorised based on their power source, such as electric, gas, or spring-powered guns.

No, airsoft guns are not typically loud. The pellets they shoot are very small, so they don’t make a lot of noise when they hit something. If you are using an airsoft gun indoors, you might want to use ear protection to avoid damaging your hearing.

 In most countries, airsoft guns do not require a license or registration as they are not considered firearms. However, laws and regulations may vary depending on the country or state.

Yes, airsoft guns can be modified or upgraded to improve their performance or customize their appearance. However, it is important to only make modifications that are legal and safe.

While both airsoft guns and paintball guns are used for recreational activities, they differ in their ammunition and the way they operate. Airsoft guns shoot small plastic pellets while paintball guns shoot paint-filled capsules. Airsoft guns are also typically designed to mimic real firearms while paintball guns have a more distinct look.
