Gas shotguns T: Gas shotgun replicas - for whom?
Many models of replicas are used during shooter events - replicas of assault rifles, sniper rifles, pistols as well as shotguns work well. The latter is not as popular, though. When should you choose to acquire this type of replica?
Shotgun replica in airsoft
Gas rifles may not be as popular as other types of replicas, but they do have some unique features. Their rarer use is not due to parameters, but to the fact that replicas of this type work well in a very specific type of game. Despite being very powerful, they cannot be used for effective continuous fire, as each shot must be followed by a manual reload. Many airsoft shotgun replicas shoot three balls at a time, but each time you have to reload and aim again - it reduces the speed of the shots and thus their effectiveness. Moreover, you should also be aware of the fact that the magazine is smaller than in other replicas.
In addition, airsoft rifles have to meet the limits of CQB competition, which means that replica pistols and short assault rifles tend to be more powerful. These types of models are suitable for long range games.
Use of shotgun replicas
Shotgun replicas, while not a common choice for dynamic game enthusiasts, nevertheless work well in reenactments and are a valuable acquisition for collectors. Not all military enthusiasts care to participate in classic shooter games. For many, it is a pleasure to recreate historical battles and skirmishes, where realism is paramount, also in terms of equipment.
As regards the field of play, it is worth noting that using a replica shotgun is much more demanding. The game is more difficult but more interesting, and each accurate hit gives considerable satisfaction. This is where training and skills come into play. Those who use this type of replica also emphasise the pleasure that the very sound of reloading or operating an airsoft shotgun brings.
A gas shotgun is certainly not the best choice for beginners who are just taking their first steps in airsoft. However, if you want to be an all-around player, it is also worth paying attention to these types of models, which require more advanced shooting skills and intuitive operation of the equipment, also in the conditions of the game itself.
