What is airsoft gun?
Airsoft originated in Japan in the late 1970s. The sport was designed as a combat sport that would entertain participants for hours and quickly began to spread, and can be seen in many parts of the world today. Airsoft enthusiasts tend to organize and work in teams, and often construct their games along military lines
Airsoft games vary in style and composition, but usually range from action shooting to brief organized live-action role-play, close quarter combat skirmishes, military simulations, or historical reenactments. Participants may attempt to emulate the tactical equipment and accessories used by modern military and police organizations. A game is usually secured by trained professionals who act as supervisors and law enforcement officers.
How Airsoft Guns Work
Airsoft guns use 6mm plastic or resin BBs, commonly used by 0.2g - 0.43g, BBs are low density and not very penetrating, so they can be safely shot without causing harm. Of course, they cannot penetrate to the more vulnerable parts of the body, such as the eyes, etc. When using them, it is necessary to put on appropriate protective clothing and wear goggles.
Airsoft gun are mainly divided into electric power, gas power and manual types.
- Electrically powered - Battery and motor turn the gear box device to drive the spring piston pump to shoot BB bullet.
- Gas-powered type - Inject compressed gas into the magazine or cartridge case, etc., and use the linkage to hit the valve to release the compressed gas to shoot out BB bullets.
- Manual type - Pull the piston spring manually with a linkage to push out the BB bullet with the power of the piston pump.
