If you’re thinking of getting an airsoft gun, here’s a list of the top 10 models and their features.

10. JG Aug A4 AEG

This is a simplistic rifle with an impressive velocity rate of 340-370FPS.

This medium price ranged assault rifle handles well despite weighing almost 4kg with a sleek external coat that gives it the look of a real gun.

9.ASG M14 Wood effect AEG

This electric rifle comes with both semi and fully automatic firing modes with the wooden look and weighty feel of the rifle staying true to the original 1959 M14 it was based on.

It benefits from an adjustable hop-up and rear sight to improve range and accuracy. The stand out feature of this rifle is the butt plate which allows users to stabilise the rifle against their shoulder.

8.Cyma M14 Black full-length AEG

This rifle has a well-above-average velocity of 375 FPS with a long barrel improving the accuracy and range of the shot.

It also comes with an adjustable hop-up, a rear iron sight that can be adjusted horizontally and vertically and a rubber stock pad which stops the rifle from slipping as you hold it while the butt plate stabilises the rifle against your shoulder.

7. Jing Gong AK74U Metal Body

One of the oddest looking guns on the list is a compact version of the classic AK74 rifles making it easier to hold and carry while still producing a powerful shot.

The electronic blowback system gives you a real jolt as fire off your shots at a rapid rate of 400-450 FPS.

6. Ares Amoeba AM-009 long Rail

The Electronic Firing Control System used in the gearbox allows for semi-auto, a 3 round burst or fully automatic firing while the electronic trigger provides a faster trigger response.

It has a front and rear flip-up iron sight and an adjustable hop-up to improve range, targeting and accuracy along with a high torque flat motor.

5. JG G36 long JG1038 AEG

This replica is based on a very modern-day rifle currently used in the German army and it has the durability to match.

The folding stock can change the weapon’s length to suit your situation whether you need it for close-range or long-range combat.

The handguard rail allows for accessories to be attached while the rifle itself is compatible with a number of external and internal upgrade parts.

4. G&G Combat Machine CM16 MOD0 AEG

This rifle looks and feels like the real deal with a length of 86cm making it one of the bigger, more imposing rifles and an adjustable hop-up makes it dangerous over a long-range.

There are two 20mm rails, at the top of the receiver and the top of the handguard, for accessories to be added onto it. The modular handguard allows for even more attachments like Grips and Launchers.

The 6 position Stock, along with the Hand Guard, is replaceable and the rubberised rotating butt plate design is unique to this rifle.

3. Valken TANGO ASL Series M4 Airsoft Rifle AEG

This rifle may be towards the lower end of the price range but that doesn’t mean you don’t get a lot for your money.

This is a high-grade weapon suitable for short and long-range firing with front and rear iron sights while there are six positions the Crane Stock can be adjusted to make the rifle the length that suits you to achieve the range you desire.

The Nylon Fibre Receiver allows you to add a number of accessories such as flashlights and the ambidextrous magazine release and fire selector features allow it to be operated comfortably by left and right-handed people.

2. ASG CZ Scorpion EVO 3 A1 carbine – M95 vers

The selling point of this rifle is the attention to detail that goes into the design to make it look like and have the durability of the real thing while still being relatively lightweight.

While it has some useful features found in other rifles such as an adjustable hop-up, 4 position adjustment and features which make it ambidextrous, it has some unique aspects which sets it apart from the others.

It has four firing modes; safe, semi-auto, 3 round burst and full-auto while it also has a feature which prevents it from firing once the magazine runs out.

This rifle is right at the top end of the market in terms of price and quality.

1. Wingun co2 m44 Mosin Nagant with bayonet

This rifle is an exact replica of the 1944orginal and the detail is clear to see with the imitated wood colour and texture design adding to the realistic look of the iconic rifle.

It is a rifle that is useful for both short-range and long-range skirmishes with an adjustable rear sight to ensure high-precision accuracy.

This rifle is versatile, being good for close combat and long-range attacks with an adjustable rear sight to ensure high-precision accuracy while the sling mounting points make it easy to use for left and right-handers.

The most unique part of it all is the folding metal bayonet which is fixed onto the rifle to be used when your opponent is within touching distance.

The Best Airsoft Blogs to Read

Best Airsoft blogs other than ours!

Airsoft International Magazine

This blog, which takes articles from the Airsoft International Magazine for their website, is a good place to start for beginners or for people who want to learn about the world of Airsoft before they dive into it.

The blog gives a run-down of the different types of guns, rifles and gear available, the advantages of each one and it explains in great detail how these weapons work.

It is good for beginners as it offers plenty of guidance to help you tackle and understand the jargon surrounding Airsoft as well as the rules of owning Airsoft weapons.

Airsoft Society

While this blog writes about things that are commonplace to consider in Airsoft, it tackles some less obvious issues that will only become apparent if it happens to you.

They have articles dedicated to treating injuries and wounds although not all of it is relevant for UK players such as what happens if you come into contact with poison ivy but it is good to see the advice is out there for instances like that.

As well as publishing their own blog articles, the Airsoft Society website makes use of forums for Airsoft players, at any experience level, being able to ask for and receive advice from fellow players.

It is fitting therefore that the site should be referred to as a society as it is a blog that encourages people to share their experiences or give advice, creating an Airsoft community where people help one another out.

Black Rams Airsoft

This blog is unapologetically focussed on reviewing Airsoft guns in-depth rather than discussing Airsoft as a whole.

The common template for them is to take 3 AEG rifles and compare them.

It may require you to read other blogs first to gain an understanding of the different components of rifles as it doesn’t take time to explain the importance of the different features.

Everything about the rifle is discussed, from gearboxes and recoil to how realistic the rifle feels to hold in your hands. It is a good place if you can’t decide between rifles but you’ll have to make sure you know what they are talking about first.

Popular Airsoft

This blog brings together all aspects of Airsoft into one place. They offer detailed features on Airsoft issues while also keeping up to date with the latest Airsoft news as well as reviewing Airsoft weapons and tactical gear.

This blog also offers video demonstrations for a number of guns and rifles to showcase weapons and give the viewer an idea of the strength, size and range of a particular weapon.

While other blogs have a backlog of articles to make up for their lack of new articles, this blog is constantly updated with more news, reviews, features and videos so you can keep going back for more.

Airsoft and MilSim News Blog

Despite the news being in the name, this blog covers all things Airsoft as well. Gun reviews are detailed and are quite a long read but the information is broken up and presented well.

This blog can call on some important names to interview in the Airsoft world from tactical gear manufacturers to Airsoft Event managers, to provide the readers with information from an expert.

They also report on Airsoft events where new weapons and gear are presented and tested to give you a sneak peek at what to expect in the near future.

Femme Fatale Airsoft

This blog is unique for a couple of reasons.

Firstly it is a female-focused blog.

Secondly, it was founded by Kelly Hardwick who has a constant presence on the blog, it is rare to see such a personal touch for a blog like this.

Kelly lives and breathes Airsoft, running the blog while still taking part in skirmishes when she can and articles can be found where she discusses how she first fell in love with Airsoft.

This makes the site both informative and engaging.

Reviews of guns, gears and events make up the bulk of the blog’s content for those who know what they are after while there are also ‘How to’ articles to help less experienced Airsoft players along the way.

 

How to Maintain Tactical Gear & Clothing for Military Airsoft

It is important to provide maintenance for your tactical gear and clothing in Airsoft to ensure you get the most out of them.

 

With gear ranging from clothing to backpacks to slings, incorrect maintenance may mean you pay a heavy price to continue replacing your old, worn-out equipment.

With Airsoft being an outdoor activity, your gear and clothing may be exposed to all kind of elements from rain and snow to mud, dust and sand. Not cleaning your equipment following this can damage the material and start to create rips.

This kind of damage is also caused by salt which might not be apparent as part of the terrain but comes out in your sweat.

If this is untreated, your equipment will be damaged and it will begin to smell.

There are steps you can take to make the equipment last for a long time to fend off the effects of wear-and-tear for as long as possible.

Maintaining equipment

Cleaning

For Airsoft guns, you should simply use a damp cloth to clean the exterior while you can buy cleaning rods to clean the barrel of the gun.

A build-up of dirt in the barrel of guns can affect accuracy.

Keeping your boots intact is important for your comfort and safety of movement as well as preventing a smell.

If your boots are wet, muddy or both, the soles should be taken out and left to dry. Muddy boots should be cleaned with water after the physical chunks of dirt are brushed off. Similar a soft brush should be used to clean dirt off of any piece of clothing or tactical gear you have.

Failure to maintain boots will wear them out quickly, causing holes to appear. If you realise this too late, you may go through an Airsoft session where water and mud are seeping through your boots into your socks.

It might be common sense to clean dirt off your protective goggles in order for you to see but if these aren’t cleaned in the right way, scratches may be left on them and the material creating the added protection may be damaged.

Loose dirt on goggles can be blown off rather than wiped or scrubbed off as this can ingrain the dirt and cause scratches to the goggles. This leaves the rest of the dirt to be cleaned simply by using water and your fingers to scrub off the remaining dirt.

Any use of cleaning liquids poses a risk of damaging the special protective material that makes up the goggles.

Frames should be cleaned with a small brush (avoiding the lenses) and lenses should be dried with a microfiber cloth to prevent any scratches appearing on the goggles.

You should clean Velcro pads to ensure it maintains its strong sticking ability whether it is keeping things concealed in a bag or keeping accessories attached to you.

To deal with loose threads, you should burn them rather than pull at them or try to cut them off as burning it will help to prevent the thread loosening further.

Washing

Airsoft clothing, like all clothing, goes in the washing machine to get the full cleaning effect. You should wash them at 30°C to avoid the patterns and colours fading quickly.

With camouflage being a key component of staying hidden amongst the terrain, it is important to maintain the patterns as long as possible.

Tactical gear such as slings, backpacks and belts can’t be washed in a washing machine, this will have to be done the old fashioned way with a pool of soapy water in a bath or bucket, washing off the soap with clean water and leaving it to dry in the sun.

Storage

You should ensure all your items are cleaned, washed and dried before you store them away. They should be hung up or stored upright in a way that it won’t fall over.

Following these steps can ensure your gear and clothing maintains its structure and its functionality for a long time providing you with long-lasting fresh and clean gear and clothing that won’t need constant replacing.

Strataim Epsilon & NOVA48: The future of airsoft grenades

You may not have heard of Stratiam before, but their products have brought new ideas to the market with regards to airsoft grenade systems. We’ve seen the Airsoft innovations Tornado grenade previously and their newer Cyclone impact & XL Burst banger grenades. we’ve seen the ASG Storm grenade develop since the release of the Strataim line, but for all the gas powered, BB spraying, enemy slaying grenades out there we’ve found this is the best on the market for size, reliability and durability.
