If you are looking for an airsoft gun for yourself and you have no idea about it, this article can give you some ideas for choosing
The budget is the first thing to consider. The price range should not only include how much you will spend on the airsoft , but how involved you want to get. If you are a new airsoft player, a professional gun with hundreds dollars will waste your money. A cheap gun will be a better choice at the beginning, because if you break it you will not miss it and you can upgrade or change your equipment to a higher level if you need in the future.
Make sure which kind of role you are suitable. For example, if you are not patient then there is no point of you becoming a sniper.After you choose your role then pick a gun suitable for it.
Price under $100 which gun usually with a plastic gearbox inside, we don’t recommend it. The gun price between $100 - $160 is the entry level. You can not go wrong if you choose among Echo 1, Classic Army Sportline, and G&G Affordable Series. The fully professional gun which price range between $200 - $250. Most of the guns you will find in this range are Classic Army M4/M16s. You really can't go wrong with a Classic Army.
Besides, your choice around what YOU prefer rather than what anyone else says. If you feel more comfortable with an MP5 than with an M16A4, go with the MP5!Then think about airsoft weight, for some players some guns are too weight to use effectively when they run around shooting.
There are 3 types of airsoft guns, and they all work differently, choose one you like most.
Gas/ Gas Blowback- This style of gun will most likely use green gas or co2 cartridges, These guns have a realistic recoil to it, basically every shot you shoot
Spring- These guns require no batteries or gas. Most spring guns are pistols or sniper rifles. You will have to pull the cocking mechanism back before every shot because the spring is the only propellant. If you plan to go professional the only Spring gun you might want to use is Sniper Rifle.
AEG/AEP- These guns operate by using gears to pull the spring. Those gears are ran by electric batteries.AEGs are the most common Airsoft guns to find, and are also some of the highest quality and variety. Most beginners should get AEGs as they are reliable and upgradeable when compared to GBBs.
