Airsoft Weapon Magazines
Airsoft weapons shoot airsoft BBs. These BBs are generally housed in the gun’s mag. These magazines normally attach to the airsoft gun very similarly to the real weapons they are created after. The types of airsoft weapon magazines include real capacity, mid capacity, and high capacity mags.
Info on Airsoft Weapon Magazine Types
Airsoft weapon magazines come in multiple types like real capacity, mid capacity, and high capacity magazines. Real capacity magazines, or real-caps, mimic the quantity of airsoft BBs a real gun would store, which is generally about 24 to 30 BBs. Mid capability mags, or mid-caps, enable for more airsoft BB storage with capacities around 120 to 160 BBs.
How Airsoft Mags Work
Airsoft magazines have a series of internal channels and BB storage spaces. The BBs are typically loaded into these channels with a spring connected to the really far end. When the BBs are loaded, they compress the spring developing stress. On the load end, a little lock holds the BBs in the magazine. When a BB is fired, the airsoft gun launches the lock for an instant and loads another BB into the gun out of the magazine. GBB, HPA, and CO2 weapons, which use high pressure air or green gas, will typically keep the gas or feed air in through the mag. This feeds BBs into the guns for these types of systems.
Airsoft Rifle Magazines
Airsoft rifle magazines are most often used in automatic electric guns (AEGs) and some kinds of sniper rifles. The mags are specific to the kind of AEG rifle and most of the types of that rifle are cross-compatible with the mags. See how airsoft guns work. The AEG magazines are placed into the weapon’s mag well. For example M4 design AEG magazines would usually operate in all M4 design rifles from a brief CBQ weapon with a 10 inch barrel made by G&G to a designated marksman rifle (DMR) platform with a 24″ made by Lancer Tactical or Elite Force. The very same would apply to AK47 AEG mags with swapability in between different AK rifle platforms. AEG rifle magazines can hold in between 60 to 200+ airsoft BBs.
Airsoft SMG Mags Info
Airsoft SMG mags AEG are also separated by weapon design and functional in between different submachine guns. These SMG mags also come in real capacity, mid capacity, and high capacity versions with BB storage capacities varying 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 These magazines use air and gas to work so the mags typically come with builtin gas reservoirs or pre-tapped for HPA tank hookups. The magazines used in GBB guns keep gas in the magazine so the rifle cycles every shot and feeds in the next BB.
Airsoft Handgun Mags
Airsoft handgun mags are frequently less flexible when compared to the AEG magazines used in rifles and SMGs. Pistols mags vary by type and often use CO2 or green gas (propane) held in the magazine. The mag is inserted into the handgun’s grip like the standard gun design. Pistol mags are typically interchangeable between comparable designs of the exact same airsoft gun maker, but are typically not cross-brand compatible unless they are specifically designed for that purpose. Understanding the various types of airsoft pistols can give you more insight to how their magazines function. A lot of airsoft pistol mags save around 20 to 30 airsoft BBs.
