Spring Airsoft Rifles

Spring airsoft rifles are realistic-looking weapons that fire small BB pellets. These tactical guns are made to appear as close as possible to actual rifles, allowing you to select a design based on several weapon types. These airsoft guns can be used for recreational purposes, such as target practice, competitive shooting, and military simulation games.

How do spring-powered airsoft guns work?

Spring-powered rifles are one of the many types of airsoft firearms. They are single-shot weapons that use compressed coil springs to drive the piston air pump, which occurs when the trigger is pulled. The air inside the pump cylinder becomes pressurized, propelling the pellets through the gun barrel and to your target.

To be able to shoot these airsoft guns, you will need to re-compress the spring after each individual shot. This occurs differently depending on the type of airsoft equipment you are using. For instance, airsoft shotguns make use of a pump action system to get the spring back into position. These rifles can range in power depending on how stiff the spring is. The main types of rifles available include a machine gun, shotgun, rifle, sniper rifle, and bolt-action sniper rifle.

What are some features of airsoft guns?

The features available with airsoft guns depend on the specific model that you select, although each model is made to accurately mirror real guns in design. Many, though, are black in color with an orange tip to indicate that they are replicas. Most rifle models allow for many of the components to be adjusted for handling in a variety of different situations. For instance, an adjustable scope provides the ability to change the zoom parameters of the scope in question.

If the type of airsoft gun you select is a sniper rifle, some of the features are the following:

  • A one-piece metal barrel
  • A sniper scope
  • A bipod
  • Adjustable cheek rests
What is a bolt-action sniper rifle?

One of the main types of airsoft guns is an airsoft sniper rifle that makes use of a bolt-action firing mechanism. Bolt-action is a form of repeated firearm action where the movement of a cartridge is done via the manipulation of a bolt handle. This handle is usually located on the right side of the weapon and is unlocked before being pulled back. Once pulled back, the used cartridge case is ejected from the airsoft gun and the firing pin is cocked. Once the bolt is pushed back to its original position, a replacement cartridge is loaded.
