Airsoft Gun Mags
Airsoft weapons shoot airsoft BBs. These BBs are generally housed in the gun’s magazine. These magazines normally connect to the airsoft weapon very similarly to the genuine weapons they are designed after. The types of airsoft weapon magazines consist of real capacity, mid capacity, and high capacity magazines.
Airsoft Weapon Magazine Type Information
Airsoft gun mags come in a couple of styles like real capacity, mid capacity, and high capacity magazines. These styles frequently relate to AEG mags. Real capacity magazines, or real-caps, simulate the quantity of airsoft BBs a genuine weapon would keep, which is generally around 24 to 30 airsoft BBs. Mid capability magazines, or mid-caps, enable more airsoft BB space with capacities around 120 to 160 BBs. High capacity mags, or high-caps, offer airsoft gamers the most storage space with over 200 rounds of BB storage capacity. One point to take note of about high-cap mags is that airsoft arenas frequently restrain their usage due to players using excessive amounts of ammunition to spray-and-pray during gameplay.
Airsoft Mag Functionality Information
Airsoft magazines have a series of internal channels and BB storage locations. When a BB is fired, the airsoft gun launches the latch for a fraction of a second and loads another BB into the weapon out of the mag. CO2, HPA, and GBB weapons, which use high pressure air or green gas, will often hold the gas or feed air in through the magazine.
Airsoft Rifle Magazines Info
Airsoft rifle magazines are most typically used in automatic electric guns (AEGs) and some types of sniper rifles. See how airsoft guns work. The mags are specific to the type of AEG rifle and all of the types of that rifle are cross-compatible with the magazines. The AEG mags are placed into the gun’s magazine well.
About High Capacity LMG Mags
Some airsoft AEG guns and light machine guns, or LMGs, use very large capacity magazines. They can hold up to 1000s of airsoft BBs and provide massive amounts of suppressive fire for a squad or fireteam.
Airsoft SMG Magazines Info
Airsoft SMG mags AEG are also separated by weapon design and usable in between different submachine guns. These SMG mags usually come in real capacity, mid capacity, and high capacity versions with BB storage capacities ranging from around 24 airsoft BBs with real capacity mags to over 200 BBs with high capacity magazines. Rifle Mags for Green Gas and HPA Systems Green gas rifles (consisting of GBB versions) and guns powered by high pressure air (HPA) typically have their own custom-made design depending on the airsoft gun brand. These magazines use air and gas to function so the magazines often include builtin gas reservoirs or pre-tapped for HPA tank connections. The magazines used in GBB guns store gas in the magazine so the rifle cycles every shot and feeds in the next BB. HPA pre-tapped mags use HPA lines which are hooked up to the valves and enable the pressurized air to flow in through the magazine. This setup feeds the airsoft BBs into the HPA weapon.
Airsoft Pistol Mags Info
Airsoft pistol magazines are frequently less flexible when compared to the AEG mags used in smgs and rifles. Pistols mags differ by type and typically use CO2 or green gas (propane) kept in the magazine. The mag is inserted into the handgun’s grip like the standard firearm style. Handgun mags are typically interchangeable in between similar designs of the same airsoft weapon maker, however are typically not cross-brand compatible unless they are specifically created for that purpose. Learning about the various styles of airsoft sidearms gives you more insight to how their magazines differ. Many airsoft pistol mags keep around 20 to 30 airsoft BBs.
