With so many pistols available, it is important to work out which pistols are new or still relevant in 2019
rather than ending up with a pistol with outdated features that have since been surpassed.
5. WE 3PX4 Compact gas Pistol
As suggested by the name, this pistol is one of the smallest on the market but it does still provide a great kick when fired.
Don’t be fooled by the simple design, the pistol is highly customisable.
There are replaceable grip pads to suit the size of your hands and the magazine release is removable to be fitted to suit left and right handers.
4. WE Hi Capa 5.1 Black Dragon GBB pistol ( Type B)
This semi-automatic pistol’s stand-out slide design gives the gun a unique look among other pistols but it has substance as well as style.
It can be run on both Gas and C02 magazines and is very comfortable to hold, providing an accurate shot with a sharp recoil.
If that’s not enough, there are a number of options to customise the pistol internally and externally with a number of compatible upgrades and extras available.
3. ASG CZ P-09 Black
This double action, full size replica of a pistol is designed to be held in a single hand without losing any of its functionality.
The pistol is comfortable to hold and fires smoothly.
This is thanks to a textured grip and the smoothness of pulling the trigger.
The rail is integrated into the design of the gun allowing for the mounting of accessories such as a light or laser.
The 3 dot ironsight makes it easier to identify targets which, along with the adjustable hop-up, improves the accuracy of shot.
2. Tokyo Marui USP GBB Gas blow back
The gun may not look special but there are a number of features which improve the performance of this pistol.
The 15mm cylinder mixes stable shooting with a powerful recoil whether you choose single or double action while the magazine catch lever can be adjusted to suit left and right handers.
The safety and decocking system gives the user the ability to lock the hammer in full cock or change from full cock to half cock.
An undermount rail is included in the purchase of the gun which allows for the adding of accessories to the gun such as flashlights.
1. TOKYO MARUI – Desert Eagle .50AE (GBB)
The Desert Eagle has a recognisable iconic look and name known among airsoft players and anyone who has played a warfare video game.
This is one of the largest Airsoft pistols available and provides the kick and blowback you might expect from a larger type of gun.
Despite this, the pistol is easy to use and carry as it is a lightweight weapon with a smooth grip, making it a good choice for running and gunning on the battlefield.
The adjustable hop-up allows you to improve its range and to add some backspin, making it capable of reaching targets accurately up to 100ft.
At a cost of £160, the pistol is in the medium price range of all pistols so it represents good value for all that it offers.
