Airsoft beginnings are not easy, because ASG is a hobby that requires particular equipment. The offer of airsoft gun models available on the market is enormous and can be very daunting. If we want to have good results, not only training is important, but also working with the right airsoft gun, which must be properly set, maintained, and sometimes even tuned. As you can see, there are a lot of things to keep in mind, so we have prepared a short guide for beginners, which will also constitute an introduction to further considerations, as it includes concepts that should be further developed.
Airsoft guns - a guide for beginners
The airsoft gun is the basis and the most important element of this sport - without it there would be no airsoft. The airsoft gun imitates real models of weapons, starting from historical up to the modern ones, which are, after all, constantly designed and developed. The airsoft gun family includes handguns, such as revolvers and pistols, as well as airsoft submachine guns, shotguns, various sniper rifles, assault rifles and machine guns. They utilize various power sources - we can choose between spring, gas (green gas or CO2) and electric airsoft guns. So, which one should you choose to start with? The answer is simple: it depends.
What kind of airsoft gun should I choose to begin with?
It all depends on the budget that we can allocate for our airsoft gun. The general rule is that a spring airsoft gun is cheaper than a gas / electric one, but it’s not set in stone. Spring airsoft sniper rifles can be expensive, but are usually chosen by more experienced players. If we have never shot before and want to practice, a cheap spring airsoft pistol may be enough - however, in case of airsoft games, we will need a more advanced airsoft gun.
The electric airsoft assault rifle is the most frequently chosen model, by players with all possible levels of experience. It is the most functional and universal airsoft gun - it works well in a wide variety of roles on the battlefield. It is often equipped with additional mechanisms, such as Blow-Back, Hop-Up, MOSFET or ETU systems. The most popular assault rifle brands include Specna Arms, G&G and WELL.
How to store and maintain airsoft guns?
In order for our airsoft gun to work long and efficiently, it must be taken care of. For this purpose, it is worth keeping it in a special gun bag / suitcase, including when traveling with our weapon. This will guarantee avoiding damage and contamination that can damage or even completely ruin our airsoft gun. When storing your airsoft gun, remove all BBs from the magazines and take care of the appropriate level of battery charge. It is also worth cleaning and lubricating your airsoft gun on a regular basis.
The first airsoft game - what else will we need?
If we want to try our airsoft gun out on the battlefield, we will need a few more accessories. Every weapon requires ammunition - in this case, plastic or biodegradable BBs. BBs differ in weight, and the general rule is that weight should be matched to the power of the given airsoft gun. The lower the muzzle velocity, the lighter the BB should be, but it is best to test different BBs and see how they work with a specific airsoft gun and its settings - for example, the Hop-Up system. It is also very important to protect one’s eyes - by means of goggles / safety glasses - without them, we will not be allowed to enter any official airsoft arena; they should be worn at all time, for the whole duration of any airsoft game. Eye protection should meet ballistic standards, as only then we have a guarantee that they will stop a BB flying in our direction. As they gain experience, each airsoft player discovers what else they need to play - for example military clothing, a helmet, a sling belt, a mask or a tactical vest.
Your airsoft gun and future airsoft games - tuning. A guide for those who want more
As you keep playing airsoft, you might notice a growing need for a more powerful airsoft gun, which will provide a better range and precision of shots. This does not always mean having to buy a new model. Instead, you can try tuning your current airsoft gun. Tuning is generally a very extensive topic, so today we will only briefly mention some possible modifications. However, it is worth exploring further, as sometimes it is enough to make only a few changes to achieve very satisfactory results. We can use precision barrels, a stronger spring, replace elements in the Hop-Up system and experiment with its settings, and thus also with the weight of the BBs used. More advanced modifications can also be related to gearbox and motor tuning - however, those require a deeper knowledge of the subject. So, before we start tuning, it is definitely worth obtaining some level of theoretical knowledge first and taking advantage of the experience of more advanced colleagues.
