Hours can be spent trawling the internet trying to find the right red dot sight or scope for your airsoft rifle, but it’s not always easy to find the right one. Here’s our little guide to helping you pick between a T1 style sight or Holographic sight or even between a 4x ACOG or a 3-9x full size scope. We’ll go through each style based on size and list the benefits of each one.
For those invested in airsoft, going back to those early days of a tracksuit and a borrowed gun must seem like a distant memory.
But we’ve all been there! We all started somewhere and one thing you learn as you get into airsoft is that sometimes, when you look back, there are some things you really wish you knew before you started.
In the wide world of airsoft we come across people from all different kinds of background and walks of life, but we all share a common interest and are all there for one main reason…to have fun! Each loadout is unique to the person who chooses it and wears it. Some players have all Viper gear, some choose to splash out even more and get 5.11 gear and some just get a mix of everything!
Thousands of pounds worth of airsoft gun won’t stop you getting shot in the face! Only airsoft goggles and facemasks can do that.
But, if you already need glasses to shoot, you might find it hard to get the protection you need. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered. Here are the best airsoft goggles to wear over glasses.

Tokyo Marui HK416 Devgru – £575
The Tokyo Marui Next Generation recoil series has been a massive step forward in airsoft due to the fantastic recoil and blowback action built into an AEG (Automatic electric gun). We’ve seen mechanical blowback and pneumatic blowback before in AEGs , but no company has done a recoil system as efficiently as Tokyo Marui. Sure there’s the BOLT recoil AEGs, but Tokyo Marui have put so much work into making sure the recoil action doesn’t harm the receiver, piston or any other internal parts of the gearbox, it all moves in perfect synchronisation.
Now onto the model itself, it’s based off of the DEVGRU (Seal Team Six) model and comes with the quick detach flash hider & supressor as well as a Tango Down style foregrip. The crane stock is also different from the standard HK416 stock. The batteries are situated in the crane stock, but is wired to take Tokyo Marui’s own battery configuration without a Tamiya or Deans connector, however we offer a free service to fit either of these connections on making it easier to use 8.4v, 9.6v or 7.4v batteries. We do not recommend using 11.1v LiPo batteries unless it has been modified by a technician to do so. The trigger response on 7.4v batteries is brilliant out of the box anyway.
The mid capacity magazines can hold up to 82 rounds, but can also be adjusted to hold only 30 rounds for milsim games. 430 round high capacity magazines are also available, however this does eliminate the functioning bolt stop when it runs out of ammunition. Both the HK416 and M4 Stanag type magazines work in the HK416.
As expected from Tokyo Marui, the FPS is approximately 280 with every one of their models, but this in no way hinders the performance of the RIF. The range and accuracy out of the box is brilliant. If you feel you need to change or upgrade the hop system then a Maple Leaf hop rubber with a ZCI 6.02mm tightbore barrel is a great combination for brilliant performance.
