Insight into the Working and Usability of Electrically powered Airsoft Guns

Airsoft guns are the non-lethal imitation of the original firearms. As the laws, national and international does not allow the possession of firearms without any valid cause, made it next to impossible for the adventure seekers and hobbyists to own a gun. To satisfy their needs Airsoft guns where manufactured that it made possible for them to take part in combat training, military exercise and other shooting games and activities. Airsoft guns working on three mechanisms are available in market. They are spring powered, electrically powered and gas-powered guns. Here are we are going to discuss about the working and usability of electrically powered Airsoft guns.

Working and usability of electrically powered Airsoft guns

In electrically powered Airsoft guns, in order to propel the pellets, use a rechargeable battery or batteries to drive an electric motor that cycles an internal piston/spring assembly. Firing automatically and semi-automatically is possible in the guns working on this mechanism. We can divide electrically powered Airsoft guns into six categories by their mechanisms and price range. They are as follows:

  • Automatic electric guns
  • Low powered electric guns
  • Medium price electric guns
  • Electric blowbacks
  • Mini electrics
  • Automatic Electric Pistols
Automatic electric guns

In this type of electrically powered Airsoft guns, a rechargeable battery is used. These guns get their popular name from their feature of automatic, three round burst, and semi-automatic operation. Automatic electric guns are widely available and most commonly used Airsoft guns.

Low powered electric guns

Some of the electrically powered Airsoft guns are called low powered electric guns, as they are different from the original, more expensive and more powerful AEGs albeit their mechanical/electrical design and operation is alike. Sometimes they are confused with the Mini electrics.

Medium price electric guns

This type of Airsoft guns are considered as mid-ranged AEGs, are more affordable yet reasonably effective. They are middle priced electric guns. Some of the modified medium priced electric guns can approach the quality and match the performance of the originals, at half the price.

Electric blowbacks

Electric blowbacks are the high-end AEGs that run on a rechargeable 9.6-volt battery. Most Airsoft guns that have this system are the rifles. The drawback in these type of guns is that the battery drains quickly and extra stress is caused on the gearbox that result in the shorter life span of the gearbox.

Mini electrics

These types of electrically powered Airsoft guns are fully automatic. Mini electronics are not the replicas of the original firearms but they are the miniaturized version of real firearms. They are mostly made of black or clear plastic.

Automatic Electric Pistols

Automatic Electric Pistols are the first handguns that incorporate an electric powered system that is capable of fully automatic operation. This type of Airsoft guns are only useful in close range simulation as they have small gearbox and battery which makes them relatively slow compared to other Airsoft guns.

Insight into the Working and Usability of Spring powered Airsoft Guns

Airsoft guns are the identical looking replicas of original firearms. Airsoft guns firstly were manufactured keeping in mind the adventure seekers and hobbyist who were longing for the real military combat like experience. Airsoft guns are non-lethal replicas used in military and combat trainings. There are three types of Airsoft guns available in market. They are spring powered, electrically powered and gas-powered guns. Here are we are going to discuss about the working and usability of spring powered Airsoft guns.

Working and Usability of spring powered Airsoft guns

Spring powered Airsoft guns are the single shot type devices. Elastic potential energy (EPE) stored in a spring is used in spring powered Airsoft guns to launch a pellet down the barrel of the gun. The use is required to follow a simple procedure of cocking a spring gun before going for each shot. Typically, in this procedure what happens is that by pulling back the slide (pistols), bolt (rifles), or the grip on a shotgun, the pressure is applied on the spring and the spring is compressed and made ready for the shot. Due to this mechanism, these Airsoft guns are not capable of working automatically or semi-automatically.

Generally spring powered Airsoft guns are not so much powerful as the electrically powered or the gas powered ones. Although a few models of the spring shotguns and bolt-action rifles are made quite powerful, that can shoot at the velocities of 400–700 ft/s (120–210 m/s). Except the high power bolt-action sniper rifles and shotguns all the other Airsoft guns working on this mechanism are inexpensive.

Airsoft guns working on this mechanism may not last longer as the tension created by the powerful spring gives wear and tear and even damages the guns. The life of a spring powered Airsoft gun also depends on the quality of the material used in the making of the gun. However, springs guns of a few types can be modified and upgraded to make them last longer than the normal out the factory ones.

Spring powered Airsoft guns are considered less suitable in the Airsoft games and competition as they are not up to the level of the automatic guns in close combat and are not able to provide enough power and accuracy in long-range shooting. However, there’s an exception for the higher-end spring-powered Airsoft rifles as this guns are best suited for the “marksman” applications in Airsoft matches and also provides a good competitive muzzle velocities. They are also quite expensive.

Spring powered Airsoft guns are capable of working in any type of weather conditions and situations. Spring powered Airsoft guns can work in wet conditions, cold and hot climate as well as anywhere else unlike the gas powered and electrically charged. Without any difficulty and problem, spring powered Airsoft guns can be fired anywhere, in any condition. There are no chances of malfunctioning due to the weather and surrounding atmosphere in spring powered Airsoft gun.

Which Type of Airsoft Guns Suites your Needs Perfectly

Airsoft guns are the replicas of the real firearms made for the adventure seekers, hobbyists and for the military and combat training. Airsoft guns are non-lethal and they are designed in such a way that they provide the same experience as that of using the original firearms. Airsoft guns can be operated manually as well as on a cyclic basis depending on the type of mechanism that drives the pellet in the gun. Either compressed gas such as Green Gas/CO2 or compressed air via a spring or an electric motor pulling a piston are implemented in the cycling mechanism in the Airsoft guns. Airsoft guns can be divided mainly into three types that are spring powered, electrically powered, and gas-powered guns.

Types of Airsoft guns

One can find Airsoft guns mainly driven by three types of forces they are spring driven, electrically driven and Gas powered. We are going to discuss about the three types of Airsoft guns here so that you can decide upon which type will suit you needs perfectly.

Spring Powered Airsoft guns

Spring powered Airsoft guns are a single shot guns. Elastic potential energy (EPE) stored in a spring is used to compress air to launch an Airsoft pellet down the barrel in a spring powered Airsoft gun. Before going for a shot each time user is required to cock her Airsoft spring powered gun. Typically, this is done with help of following a simple procedure of pulling back the slide (pistols), bolt (rifles), or the grip on a shotgun, which compresses the spring and makes the gun ready for firing the shot. Spring powered Airsoft guns are inexpensive considered to the other types of Airsoft guns.

Electrically Powered Airsoft guns

Electrically powered Airsoft guns, in order to propel the pellets, use a rechargeable battery or batteries to drive an electric motor that cycles an internal piston/spring assembly. This type of Airsoft guns makes the operation of firing automatically and semi-automatically possible. Electrically powered Airsoft guns can be divided in six categories by their mechanisms and price range. They are as follows:

  • Automatic Electric Pistols
  • Mini electrics
  • Electric blowbacks
  • Medium price electric guns
  • Low powered electric guns
  • Automatic electric guns

Gas Powered Airsoft guns

Gas powered Airsoft guns provide both the types of operating mechanisms automatic as well as semi-automatic. Commonly green gases are used in this type of Airsoft guns especially in the guns in which there are plastic sliders used, as there are chances that higher pressure may damage the weak slide. Gases used to power an Airsoft gun depends on what material is used in the making of gun, in strongly built guns to get more pressure strong pressure-applying gases are use while guns made up of weaker material uses less pressure giving gases.

Some Airsoft guns are made up of strong material while some are of weaker, whereas some Airsoft guns are expensive while some are cheaper. Before buying, an Airsoft gun one must look upon which type of gun suits her needs perfectly in budget, quality, and the comfort and strength that they provide.

The Airsoft Guns and UK

In the 1980s era, Japan had imposed the strictest firearm laws for its civilians and prohibited them to keep/use real guns. As we know, Japanese are team players and like games, that involves hundreds of players at a time. In due course, they have developed replica firearms for a pure recreational activity such as skirmish games as well as for military simulation (MilSim) or police training purposes. Thus, Airsoft was born in Japan and spread in Hong Kong, Taiwan, etc. regions.

Airsoft Guns and Ammo

Airsoft manufacturers has used plastic, Aluminum alloy, etc. lighter materials to produce guns, which exactly replicate the appearance of real firearms, but lack the real weight and shooting power so they are harmless. Moreover, they made ammunition from plastic instead of metal unlike their real counterparts. Thus, these replica BB’s are quite safe in the game fields.

The first generation guns were spring powered, but they eventually morphed them into gas and battery-powered replica weapons. However, the present generation of Airsoft guns has electric power via powerful rechargeable batteries and automatic loading as well as operating system. Thus, it gives the feel of real machineguns or high-capacity automatic weapons used in the real military battles. Gradually, in the 1990s, Airsoft skirmish game became popular in US and North American regions and now, since last decade it is rocking in UK and other European countries as well.

Airsoft in UK

No doubt, United States is considered as a large market for Airsoft products, as its laws are a bit RIF (Realistic Imitation Firearms) friendly as well as Airsoft fan population is huge compared to that of UK and its neighbors. Therefore, Airsoft manufacturers produce guns and ammo (ammunition) for US market and ship the same to UK as well. This very reason is responsible that Airsoft guns in UK are coming with a bright orange tip/section around the muzzle. Whereas, there is no law in UK is supporting or compelling the RIFs’ manufacturers to go for it.

Laws:

In wakes of imposing similar laws in UK as US has, the government of UK has invoked ‘Defense’ concept to use RIF in some law-abiding manners and some pre-defined activities as well. This Defense is based on self-policing concept where authority doesn’t recognize the RIF and its activities under the umbrella of any centralized license or membership scheme in UK. Instead, manufacturers or distributors/sellers/retailers should check the customers at first place for their real intentions to hold Airsoft/RIF.

Thus, now they sell guns and ammos under the scrutiny of the government authority by keeping legitimate records of guns/ammos and buyers. Thus, they can produce supportive evidences in case purchaser is in question against the law/authority at any point.

The Best Practices:

In order to track activities of the Airsoft gun/RIF holders in UK, there are several membership schemes and clubs in existence that keeps records of organized Airsoft activities held in their premise/clubs or granted areas. Among such schemes and clubs UKARA, British Airsoft Club, and SWAT PASS are front-runners and majority of retailers prefer to have membership of one of them for their Airsoft gun customers.

No doubt, British laws never allow any Airsoft gun holder to carry RIF in public without adequate sealing in box or bag in order to conceal them completely from the public view. Hence, they can save themselves from any sort of misunderstanding, unfortunate event, or action taken by authority or police/military in public places. There are also some guidelines in wake of recent terrorist activities and you can update yourself by contacting your retailers.

Where it is Advisable to Use Airsoft Guns and Where Not

Regarding to their appearance Airsoft guns are hyper-realistic. It is simply reasonable for authority (police, security, guard etc.) to mistake them for real thing. So acute decision is needed while choosing places to play with Airsoft guns. Obviously, it is not advisable to use Airsoft guns everywhere.

Airsoft guns users always try to use Airsoft guns at an official venue only. Airsoft guns should be used only on lands (or at privately owned land) where the permission is given for its usage. The core advantages of using Airsoft guns at privately owned lands are, it’s safe to fire, low risk, and not abusive to others. Apart from that, Airsoft guns can be used at Airsoft fields, at Arena, and at specially designed shooting areas.

Playing or using Airsoft guns at one’s garden or leased land, or in a club, is not a bad idea, but above all owner’s permission is mandatory. Furthermore, competition fields, out in the woods, in forests, and high fenced yards are also being operated for Airsoft guns. If Airsoft guns are to be used by kids then it must be used in backyard, garage, or on wood’s walls under parental supervision. Parental instruction is also required regarding the places to use Airsoft guns.

Finally, many Airsoft communities organize get together for Airsoft battles. Many privately owned property owners organize skirmishes in their backyards and it is fun. Some community sponsored Airsoft guns battle transmit you experiences like small military type mission, which gives you both fun and a bit of superficial training too.

While transporting, Airsoft guns must be handled in such a way that other passers should not get panicked. It should not be pointed out of the window of vehicle.

In case of kids, educating them is the first step because they may secretly bring Airsoft guns to the schools , and most time it becomes the potential threat to others. In fact, school’s playground,/premises prohibit the use of Airsoft guns. Parents must teach their kids to avoid taking Airsoft guns to school as it may lead authority to seize the permission of guns or one may get arrested.

Finally, it is not advisable to use Airsoft guns at an unofficial location.

Because, in worst condition someone may shoot you with a real gun if he is not aware about what is going on or he have no idea that  you are with a replica only.

There is nothing wrong in using Airsoft guns with your friends, but it must be used in friendly environment. Remember that Airsoft guns are although are not real, should be treated with same level of responsibility as you would with real guns. If places are chosen to use Airsoft guns that are not permitted then you are violating the legal guidelines that may cause a serious trouble for you.

Simulate Military Exercise through Airsoft Games

Airsoft guns look almost identical to the real ones. Amateurs as well as professionals find it very difficult to tell apart the real guns from the Airsoft ones. The Airsoft guns have the same workings as the real ones from the take-down, to the safety features, to the decocking levers, it’s all the same. These factors give a very real feel during the military exercise. Military uses the Airsoft guns and accessories to train personnel for the real combat by arranging the Airsoft games for them.

The differences that tell away the Airsoft guns from the real ones are that they are slightly smaller than the real ones; they make a little different sound than the real ones when they go off and they are marked so that they can be told apart from the real ones. The Airsoft guns are similar to the BB guns. They are loaded with the small 6 mm biodegradable plastic pellets, which are quite harmless.

As the Airsoft guns are identical to the real ones, it becomes very difficult in the times of high threats and when the lives are at stake. Many robbers and criminals have taken the advantage of the identical appearance of the Airsoft guns to that of real ones.

In the threatening times all a person is going to see is the shape of the weapon and that it is pointed at him/her and the person is not going to think about anything rationally and will react the same as facing a real weapon. With this misunderstanding, person will comply with the demands of the criminal/robber and it also can happen that if cops are to be on the spot at the same time a real shooting may start and cause loss of life/injury, and these types of incidents have taken place in real at a few places.

Putting all the negatives aside, the Airsoft guns and accessories are very helpful to the governmental and private organizations that are into the security business. As the Airsoft guns come with the same workings as the real ones they provide with a real and good experience of handling the real weapons when there is any real threat.

Airsoft guns and accessories are used in training the military candidates for the real threats by arranging the training level Airsoft games for them. They are decked with the same weapons and accessories that any real threatening situation will require but they are substituted with the Airsoft weapons and accessories. Airsoft games provide the same experience that a real threatening situation will provide less any real blood and gore, casualties and deaths. Airsoft games are also held for the common people for providing them an adventurous experience and thrill of the threatening situations that military personnel faces while in real combat.
