Airsoft and Paintball are now very popular hobbies. They are sports that people 13+ can enjoy. Of course, paintball is hardcore and can hurt, so airsoft is a great way to begin. Here are some great, affordable guns for beginners.
Requirements for Airsoft
- Safety Glasses/Goggles – Only place you can get injured seriously. Well there is one other place…
- A gun – You cant walk in with a knife or something.
- .12g or .20g plastic BB’s – Metal BB’s are dangerous as they can penetrate skin. They hurt if they don’t penetrate. The heavier the BB, the slower the BB.
- Camouflage Clothes (optional) – Provides camouflage so the enemy cant see you well, and provides armor so the BB’s hurt less.
- Side Weapon (optional) – If you run out of ammo in a firefight, you can switch. Not recommended for beginners.
- Some experience with sports and gun. – Fat couch potatoes wont be able to run away from rapid-firing machine guns.
Desert Eagle .44 Magnum
This airsoft gun packs a punch at 290 FPS (feet per second). It hurts like crazy and it is dead accurate. Use .20 gram BB’s to get the most performance. It looks sexy and shoots sexily too. It is spring meaning you have to load it after every shot. It is about 1.5 pounds when loaded. Holds 28 BB’s. It is made in china, but spring guns almost never break. I own it and I use it as a secondary. Usually around 26$.

Crossman SASR36 Tactical
Wow. This gun is pretty much perfect. Comes with an LED flashlight, a rail system for scopes and lasers, a vertical grip for more comfort and an easy-aim sight. It is around 240~260 FPS and shoots 12 or 20 gram BB’s. The flashlight is useful for dark places or for close quarter battles. The sight is easy to use and I believe it is detachable, so you can use the iron I mean, plastic sights to aim if you get tired of the tactical sight. The clip holds 20 rounds and the gun can be used in 3 different positions. I think the one with the grip and the stock is the best. I don’t own it, but I know it is great. Range is about 31 yards I think. Not recommended for battles against pros.

Double Eagle M85 (G36C)
This gun is unreliable at times, but is great overall. It has around 240 FPS, which feels like a light punch on armor, and feels like a hard pinch with light or no clothes. (Never airsoft with no clothes. ) It is manufactured by Double Eagle and comes with 10 things. This is definitely worth 34.99 (it used to be 100$). It has 1, the gun itself, 2, a clip that holds around 50 BB’s, 3, an LAM (Laser Aiming Module), 4, a Flashlight that is “tactical”, 5, A red cross scope, 6, Unjamming rod, 7, The Rechargeable battery, 8, A bag of BB’s lasts maybe 1 minute… 9, Safety Glasses and finally, 10, a Fake Silencer (real ones are ILLEGAL!!). Oh yeah, it also has a manual that is poorly translated. If you bought the gun and all the accessories separately, it would be maybe, 30$ for the gun and 62$ for the accessories. I’m just guessing so don’t shoot me please. It has a safety, semi and automatic choosing feature. Overall, this gun is OK, but it is perfect for beginners and good to be used in battles/wars.

Galaxy MP5K-PDW Version
This gun is the best gun ever. It fires at a blazing 340 FPS and has a 200-225 feet range. If you shoot someone with this, it hurts like ********** even with armor. It is compact (portable) so you can carry it easily. It is fast and very unlikely to break when treated carefully. It has an adjustable hop-up. Hop-up is an ability guns have that makes the bullet go up or down more. When adjusted perfectly, it can go very far and can be dead accurate. It has a flash hider, so if you buy a flashlight, then you can attack it to it. It also comes with a vertical grip, a stock and two magazines. The hi-cap mag holds 200rounds and the regular clip has around 45 rounds. It is recommended that you use .20 gram BB’s with this gun as it is a good quality electric. It has metal gears that are impervious to most other forces. It can break occasionally, but I’ve never seen one break all the way. The makers are very trustable and I think this gun is maybe the best SMG (sub-machine gun) on the market.

I own this gun and I have to say one thing about it. It is DA BOM! This gun fires at around 250 FPS on half-battery and 300 FPS on full battery! I think this gun is definitely worth it. The only bad thing is that the handle is wiggly, the gun is larger than scale (I think) and the scope has nothing on it. I had to put crosshairs on the scope with sharpie lol. The gun comes with iron sights too, so if you don’t want to make crosshairs, then you can use the sights. The sights are like MP7 and AK47 sights combined, so they are easy to aim with. If you want, you can get an actual zooming scope with crosshairs for extreme pwnage. The manual had horrible translations (wtf does nicety mean?) but it at least told me basics. Since the manual doesn’t say how long to charge the battery, ill tell you. The first time should be about 4 hours, and other times should be 1-2.5 hours. You will notice your gun gets slower, and that is when you need to charge. The slower the longer. The mag holds 50 rounds and the gun comes with a speed loader. This gun is probably the best LPEG (Low Powered Electric Gun) in the market.
