Top 10 Airsoft Sniper Rifles

Choosing an airsoft rifle is hard when there are so many options available.

Here’s a list of the top 10 and their features, to help you make that all-important decision.  

10. Well 4402D sniper rifle Olive

The original price for this bundle is great although the rifle has been reduced as the scope and bipod are no longer included.

Without the bipod, it is a fairly weighty rifle to carry around but does possess a velocity of around 390FPS and the adjustable hop-up allows for a more accurate shot.

9. ASG 308 Accuracy International L96 sniperrifle

This sniper may not look as real as other ones with its blue coat but the full metal trigger box and full metal barrel give it the performance of a real rifle.

This is a powerful yet cheap sniper, at 420FPS, to hit targets from far away with an adjustable hop-up to improve your accuracy further.

8. JG G36 Counter Sniper RIS 608-sl85

This rifle is suited for spotting, targeting and neutralising enemy snipers which is why it has a low capacity magazine model.

When targeting other snipers, they will likely be stationary so you most likely won’t waste much ammo as you would if you were trying to snipe a moving target.

7. Jing Gong AK Dragunov SVD AEG

This has a classic AK47 rifle look but is indeed a sniper rifle. The only metal used in this rifle is for the controls so it is much lighter than other rifles in the AK range as well as other sniper rifles.

Having a pre-installed bi-pod and long metal outer barrel makes it a good weapon of choice for anyone undertaking a Designated Marksman role.

6. Well MB01 Warrior I l96 style Sniper Rifle (Black)

This is a good sniper for beginners to use to get used to this type of rifle and style of battle.

The top rail allows for the attachment of scopes to further improve the long-range accuracy of this rifle along with the adjustable hop-up.

Sling points at the front and rear as well as an adjustable cheek rest and butt pad make the rifle bend to the owner’s comfort.

5. Ares Amoeba Striker Sniper Rifle (Black)

This lightweight rifle boasts a number of features which makes it one of the top sniper rifles on this list.

The 45 round capacity magazine for this weapon is over double the ammunition capacity for most other sniper rifles while it has 30% shorter bolt pull over others as well.

The clockwise 23mm threaded barrel is ideal for attaching suppressors to make the noise from firing almost non-existent.

4. Ares Amoeba Striker Short Sniper Rifle AS02 (Dark Earth)

This Ameoba Striker takes everything that worked for the hugely popular AS01 model while making some external improvements to it.

The barrel is shorter than the previous version, a small groove has been added to improve the grip while it has a ¾ length pull in comparison to most other sniper rifles.

The 4 rectangular vent holes at the front are ideal for placing rails in to fit a number of accessories onto the rifle.

3. King Arms MDT TAC21 Tactical Rifle – BK – Limited Edition

The most expensive rifle on the list, the TAC21 value comes from its great craftsmanship as well as its great ability.

The Chassis system is made from aviation-grade aluminium with anodized finishing so a lot of effort has gone into the look and design of the rifle as evidenced by the Magpul PTS MOE grip and Magpul PTS PRS stock.

This gives the weapon an incredible level of authenticity and control.

You might expect a sniper rifle at this cost to have all its own features set out but it is still highly customisable to make it suit you further.

A top mounting rail, a built-in mounting rail as well as a side rail and bottom rail opens up the possibilities for a number of accessories to be attached

2. Tokyo Marui PSG-1 Electric Sniper

This is one of the few electric sniper rifles in the Airsoft market. The high price reflects the quality of this rifle over a long distance.

With a 4×40 rifle scope, it provides a high quality of magnification to allow you to shoot accurately from almost 300 feet away, helped even further by an adjustable sniper stock.

This sniper rifle is the ultimate in long-range combat because of this and only stays off the top spot due to its price tag.

1. JG VSR / bar10 G-Spec with scope

This deceivingly lightweight sniper rifle is top of the class when it comes to everything you look for in a sniper rifle.

An adjustable hop-up, a top rail for scope attachments (which comes with the rifle) and a barrel extension provide pin-point accuracy from up to 200 feet away at a rate of 400FPS.

On top of this, the rifle is fully upgradeable to improve its performance even further.

Top 10 Airsoft Submachine Guns

airsoft laws

There are countless variations of Airsoft Submachine, so it can be difficult choosing the right one.

Here’s a list of the best available at the moment if you’re thinking about investing in on.

10. JG MC51 SAS – AEG

This compact SMG made of both plastic and metal is great for CQB and the velocity of 360FPS makes it one of the fastest firing guns around.

9. JG T3 G3 SAS CQB JG096 Sub machine gun

With a shortened barrel and the stock removed, this gun is light and compact.

What it lacks in additional features, it makes up for with a high-capacity magazine able to hold 500 BBs and provides a fast firing rate at 365FPS.

8. JG P90 with 1500 round box magazine

A slightly awkwardly shaped SMG where the main benefit is the large magazine that comes attached to the gun so that you can keep on firing for a long time.

The fire selector offers three options; safe, semi and auto.

7. Ares Amoeba AM-015 CQB Soundhog (Black)

This high-powered SMG is great for close-range combat with semi and fully automatic shooting mode and there is also the option of using a silencer.

The retractable buttstop can be placed in two separate positions and it also has a front and rear sight to improve targeting.

The 8 sided handguard comes with a 20mm rail for accessories such as lasers or flashlights to be attached to them to enhance the gun further.

6. ASG B&T MP9A1 Foregrip – Black

The appeal of this SMG lies in the gas blowback and the realistic look and feel of the replica.

With a folding stock to adjust the weapon’s length which, along with the adjustable hop-up, allows you to rapidly fire at a further range or in a more accurate manner while the integrated front grip gives you more control over it.

An added bonus is that the trigger has an active safety function.

Best Airsoft Guns 20185. G&G ARP9 with keymod rail AEG (Black)

 

The small size of the ARP9 makes it easy to carry and aim but looks can be deceiving. You might not expect it to have such great accuracy and range but it does, making it a popular primary weapon.

There is a rail for both the front and top allowing for accessories and sights to be added to the SMG.

It fires at a fast rate of 330FPS.

4. JG MP5K with m4 stock and rails JG206

This is a compact yet heavyweight SMG that has a lot to offer.

It has top, side and lower rails to mount sights, attach grips and other accessories to attach to it while the front and rear iron sight are adjustable.

It has a couple of ambidextrous features such as rear sling mount along with a fire selector making it possible for you to use whichever hand is your strongest when using it.

The velocity is also adjustable ranging from 290-320FPS.

3. Jing Gong MP5SD with retractable stock

This is a good starter gun for new Airsoft players to get their hands on a reliable, durable realistic-looking replica at a very affordable price.

A built-in suppressor and retractable stock make it easy to manoeuvre during close encounters on the battlefield with the ability to silently take out your enemies without them hearing a thing.

2. S&T PPSH-41 blowback aeg (Real Wood)

This mixture of steel and imitation wood provides a stylish look for a sub-machine gun with a 2000 round drum magazine.

As suggested by the name, the blowback system is a big part of the gun’s appeal but being an iconic Russian weapon of WW2 is also an enticing factor.

The adjustable hop-up allows you to improve the range and accuracy of your shots.

1. ASG CZ Scorpion EVO 3 – B.E.T. carbine, M95 version

This gun allows you to change the velocity easily so you can determine for yourself how fast the pellets shoot out while still providing highly accurate shots thanks to the front and rear iron sights.

The full-metal internal system makes the weight and function feel like the real thing as well as looking like the real thing.

It can detect when the magazine is empty while it has a 4 position fire selector with a genuine 3-shot burst and the custom electronics inside make it a high functioning weapon.

Airsoft Support Weapons

The top 5 Airsoft Support Weapons

5. S&T M1918 BAR Real wood WW2 AEG

 

The appeal of this support weapon is in its design and its history as a replica of a weapon used by the USA in both World Wars as well as the Korean and Vietnam War.

The rifle is made completely of metal yet features a dark wood furniture kit that gives it a realistic look, geared towards making it look exactly like the original.

It weighs 5kg even without having an in-built bipod and so is one of the heavier weapons to carry around without an integrated bipod to set it down on.

4. A&KM249 MK1 support weapon AEG

 

The MK1 is a full metal support weapon which gives it its sleek and realistic looking design.

It comes with an integrated bipod so that you can set it down and take up a position to provide cover for your team by continuously firing at the enemy.

This is helped by a generous 2500 round drum magazine and a quick change spring system so that you won’t be losing time constantly readjusting or reloading your weapon.
The adjustable stock can help you to spread your fire as far or as close as you want depending on the situation.

3. A&K M249 MK46 support weapon AEG

 

Like the MK1, The MK46 is a full metal support weapon with particular attention paid to the design to make it look like the real thing.

Overall there isn’t much to choose between this and the M1 as they share a lot of the same features and cost the same.

It comes with an integrated bipod, 2500 round drum magazine, quick change spring system and the adjustable stock just like the M1, providing the same benefits.

The MK46 just gets the edge on the MK1 because of the ability to mount the grip, making it easier and more comfortable to hold.

Overall, it may just come down to a case of which one you like the look of the most as appearance is one of the only things they differ in.

2. FN Herstal M249 Para support gun

 

This is a full metal support gun that comes with a number of features to make it one of the best support weapons on the market.

The magazine can hold a whopping 5000 rounds but that isn’t the only good thing.

The magazine box is sound controlled meaning that it will automatically detect when you dry fire a couple of rounds, so it auto-winds.

There is also an option to have it continuously wind.

It is one of the heaviest guns around at over 6kg so it may weigh you down but once you stop to use it, you will feel the full benefit of it.

This support gun fires at a fair rate of 300FPS but it is the features mentioned above which make it stand out and worth the investment.

1. A&K m249 MK2 Support weapon

 

This rifle’s full metal design makes it sturdy, durable and a replica true to the original weapon.

With a box magazine of 2400 rounds and a rapid velocity of 390FPS, you can lay siege to your enemies with firepower as you halt their fire and allow your own team to advance forward.

The 14mm front threading allows for the attachment of accessories for your support weapon and to switch up the flash hider to suit your needs.

Targeting opponents and hitting them accurately is helped further by an adjustable hop-up as well as a top rail for red dot targeting or scopes to be added.

The best in Assault Vests and Pouches

It can be a hassle to carry all the equipment you need around with you during battle.

With the right assault vest and pouches, you can carry all the guns, magazines and conversion kits you need for a skirmish on your person with ease and in comfort.

Assault vests

5.11 TACTEC Chest Rig (Black)

This is one of the cheaper assault vests available but it still has a lot to offer.

This assault vest keeps your items close to you thanks to a number of compartments found all around the rig.

The vest is lightweight and doesn’t cover your whole upper body so it will not weigh you down, giving you the ease of movement on the battlefield.

There are six compartments in the front for you to store things so that they are easy to reach. There are compartments to the side which are useful for storing accessories.

There is a pocket at the rear designed for your Airsoft admin such as cards and documents.

Everything you store in these compartments will be protected against all types of weather you encounter to ensure that your items and documents remain dry.

5.11 TACTEC Plate Carrier (Black)

This assault vest covers your whole upper body to offer protection from incoming fire or the force of your weapon (if you fall over and land on your weapon) and it doesn’t get damaged by the weather.

Despite its look and the protection it offers, it is a surprisingly light vest allowing you free range of movement rather than weighing you down.

The skeletonised waistband and yoke shoulder pads distribute the weight evenly and the adjustable waistband allows you to make it as loose or tight as you need it to be to make you feel comfortable.

It also has a one-hand quick release system so that you can shed it quickly if you need to.

Emerson Gear NCPC Navy Cage plate carrier Black

This offers protection, quick release and adjustability to match the TACTEC plate carrier but there are a few extra features which make it stand out.

The vest has integrated pouches to allow you to carry three 5.56 .223 magazines as well as an admin pouch to carry documents, cards and other miscellaneous items with you.

Shoulder pads and interior pads are removable so you can customise the vest to suit your needs.

Pouches

Viper Quad Magazine Pouches – Black

This pouch is cheap yet it provides space enough for 4 M4 sized magazines and can be attached to tactical vests and rigs.

This is lightweight and easy to attach, giving you a chance to carry plenty of ammo to last you through a day of battling.

Tasmanian Tiger dump pouch- Multicam

This camouflage option goes well with other camouflage equipment to make you harder to spot among the terrain.

It’s all well and good to have storage space and pouches for your equipment but a dump pouch gives you the option to discard your used items.

If you have an empty magazine, you want it to be out of your way as soon as possible and don’t want to be reaching for it again if you try to pull out a fresh one.

The pouch is capable of storing 4 G 36 double magazines.

This can help to stop waste on the ground but from a tactical point of view, it prevents you from dropping these items which might give your opponent clues to your location.

5.11 6.10 VERTICAL POUCH (BLACK)

This pouch can be integrated with other 5.11 products such as bags, packs and duffels to provide you with a bag with plenty of storage space for your Airsoft items at a height of 10” and a width of 3 ½ “.

The durable Nylon makes it sturdy but also weatherproof keeping the pouch and the equipment inside protected at all times.

The moulded grip pull is a nice feature which makes the pouch easy to grasp while you are wearing gloves. The pouch may be protected from bad weather but your hands, outside of gloves, aren’t.

JG G36c – The Perfect Starter Gun

as-g36-airsoft-gun

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.

jg-bar-10-vsr-10-with-scope jg-vsr-gspec-1

JG Bar 10 standard & Gspec – £155

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!
