Popular WW2 Airsoft guns


World War II was a conflict that undoubtedly shaped the current world order in geopolitical terms. The conflict itself consisted of many battles fought throughout Europe, Africa and Asia. A conflict of this magnitude could not go without an echo in the media. The heroism and sacrifice of the soldiers fighting on the fronts of World War II were the inspiration for thousands of songs, movies, TV series, stories or games. The stories of veterans or the battles depicted on the silver screen have inspired many people to collect and reconstruct troops from that era. So, we can read about World War II participants, we can watch a movie about them, we can play them in a computer game, we can dress alike, but can we feel a sense of the substitute of their service by using a replica of the weapons they used? That's what this article will be about.

Characteristics of WW2 guns

WW2 guns have their own peculiar style and spirit of the mid-19th century. The designers of the time did not have access to computers or CNC machine, the weapons were mainly made of forged, stamped, casted steel and wood. In addition, they are perfectly reminiscent of the military doctrines of the time, where accuracy, durability and the stopping power of the projectile itself mattered more, unlike today.

In the following article, I will introduce the most popular designs of the Second World War and point out their replicas.
