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.

Sometimes, subtly takes a back seat and you need to go loud. And nothing goes loud like an airsoft grenade. Grenades and flashbangs are an efficient and viscerally enjoyable way to disorientate and take out a whole group of enemies at once.
Jing Gong G36c – £145
The JG G36 has been around for years and many like myself started of with one for their first gun, but lets look at why.
First of all it’s and inexpensive, durable ABS plastic rifle with lots of potential for customisation, for example you can change the standard skeletal style stock to the KV shark stock or even get the M4 stock adapter to attach a stock tube and new stock. This is ideal for those that don’t like the standard folding stock aspect of the G36 and want the comfortable feel of a crane or viper stock. Magazines are readily available for these in both high capacity (470 round) and mid capacity (100-140 round) magazines, available from MAG, Cyma, JG, Classic Army and Tokyo Marui. Another customisable aspect of the G36 is the M4 magazine adapter allowing you to use M4 type magazines.
Hop-up (or High Operation Power Up) is the back-spin put on airsoft BBs to increase their range via something called the Magnus Effect. By applying backspin to a projectile, you get better range and better accuracy.
The JG Bar 10 (or VSR 10) is arguably one of the best base airsoft guns in the market for upgrading to an ultimate bolt action spring sniper rifle. Starting with the externals, the Bar 10 features a rubberised texture body, instantly giving it one up on the Tokyo Marui VSR 10 which has a basic ABS plastic body. It has sling points on both the front and rear of the lower body with the 20mm bipod rail readily available. The upper half is full metal like the TM one and comes with a 20mm picatinny rail for sights and scopes. Oh and it even comes with a 3-9×40 scope! The scope has a nice, clear crosshair and also comes with the scope rings necessary to mount the scope on.

Camo is a vital component of the ancient art of Not Getting Shot. But it does make expressing yourself a bit problematic. Thankfully, you can patch up your gear with novelty patches to personalise your look. Morale patches – they make cool gear cooler!
From the lewd, crude to the just damn funny. Here are our favourite airsoft morale patches.
Like most quality past times, getting started with airsoft requires some investment. At the very least, you need some amount of protection and an airsoft gun. Most people who get started airsofting borrow guns from friends, but eventually everyone wants airsoft gear to call their own. Here’s our realistic guide to budgeting your gear.
BBs are the bread and butter of airsofting. Without BBs, we’d just be idiots running around with expensive sticks. But what are BBs actually made of?
When you get into a combat scenario, you need to be able to rely on your team and your tools. No matter what your airsoft role, you should be carrying the best firearms available. But with such a huge range of airsoft guns available, which ones are the best?
What’s worse when you’re airsofting? Sweltering heat or freezing cold? Would you prefer to be blinded by sweat or have your hands so numb you can’t fire?
Neither seems that appealing, right? And with the grip of winter firmly upon us, there is no better time to load up on some new gear to keep you warm and dry out there.
We’ve stocked the Specna Arms brand now for a few months, but haven’t seen many people touch on it. So we decided to give you a general overview on the quality and performance you get for the price.

This is just a video test to test the quality from direct impact, if you have any doubts please view the manual for guidelines on use.
