Information on the Kinds of Airsoft Pistols
Find information about airsoft handguns and sidearms and how you can use them as extra weapons or as primary weapons on the airsoft playing field. A large number of airsoft pistols are fully manufactured and licensed editions of their actual weapon counterparts and run and look in the same ways while shooting airsoft BBs instead of actual bullets.
There are a number of types of airsoft handguns including CO2, green gas (blowback and non-blowback), spring powered, and AEG automatic electric pistols. Each of these types of pistols has negatives and positives related to them. Learning more about the styles of airsoft handguns lets you figure out which type is right for you and your airsoft gameplay style.
About CO2 Airsoft Pistols
CO2 airsoft guns are one of the most durable and common types of pistols. These pistols use high pressure CO2 gas to move airsoft BBs out of the weapon barrel.
These forms of airsoft guns are good choices for playing airsoft in cold weather conditions due to the fact that the high pressure CO2 gas is stored in the sealed cylinders and less vulnerable to performance variations by low temperature. This offers exceptional FPS and shot consistency while playing airsoft in the cold weather for example where other types of handguns like green gas cease to work or hardly fire airsoft BBs.
About CO2 Gas and CO2 Cylinders
CO2 airsoft pistols are powered by standard 12 gram CO2 cylinders. These cartridges look like a chrome metal cylinder and store high pressured CO2 gas made up of one carbon atom and two oxygen atoms, thus the molecular formula is “C + O2 “. These atoms are bound in the following sequence “O= C =O”. The gas is kept in the 12 gram cartridge cylinders under extremely high pressure of close to ~ 800psi which correlates to 55bar.
They come sealed to keep the CO2 gas securely inside, however the moment they are opened (shooting them in an airsoft gun breaks the seal) they will start to lose pressure if they are left unused. If the airsoft games end and you still have CO2 gas left, use the chance to do some handgun target practice and use up the rest of the remaining gas.
If they are kept sealed, CO2 cartridges have a long storage life. They come with the supplier’s best used by date typically listed on the box or cartridge cylinder, but they can last for an extended time past this date if the cartridge seals are not punctured.
Green Gas and Propane Airsoft Sidearm Information
Green gas airsoft handguns are comparable to CO2 handguns, however they use propane gas instead of CO2 cartridges. The impact on the battlefield and green gas weapon efficiency is virtually the same as CO2 handguns with the guns shooting up to 300+ FPS.
The green gas is housed in the pistol’s mag and can commonly hold in-between 15 to 20+ 6mm airsoft BBs based on the pistol model. A series of valves, rubberized gaskets, and o-rings keep the green gas sealed in the pistol magazine up to when the handgun’s trigger is squeezed. It is a good habit to top off and refill your propane supply in the magazine each time you reload it. Pistol-wielding airsoft players can also carry excess bottles of green gas or propane in the field for refilling magazines in-between breaks in the battle or between missions.
When running a green gas handgun on the airsoft field as a backup or primary weapon, bringing additional handgun magazines is advised for quickly reloading and engaging opponents. Having extra mags on-hand allows you to get back in the action in the middle of firefights or while clearing buildings in CQB (close quarters combat) room-to-room fighting.
Green gas handguns are optimal for CQB at airsoft fields considering rifles and full-sized AEGs are usually not authorized to be used for indoor game play. This is a safety regulation due to the close quarters proximity of gamers during the shooting engagements and the potential for players to be hurt. While green gas pistols can still shoot airsoft BBs at around 300 FPS, the shorter handgun barrel assists to keep the joules and energy propelling the BB lower compared to AEGs, sniper rifles, and other long guns.
Thinking About Green Gas Blowback (GBB) VS Green Gas Non-blowback
There are two different sorts of green gas airsoft handguns. There are green gas blowback pistols or GBBs where the slide moves and non-blowback pistols. The green gas non-blowback airsoft handguns use a fixed slide which does not move.
About GBB and Green Gas Limits
Because the green gas or propane is housed in the magazine using rubber o-rings, seals, and silicone gaskets, cold weather can influence these seals and cause the gas to escape before shooting the handgun. This can cause the airsoft BBs to simply shoot a couple of feet away (like 10 feet in cold weather ) when the handgun would normally shoot airsoft BBs over 100+ foot distances in warmer weather).
One solution to this issue is to try to keep the GBB handgun mags warmer by putting them close to your body prior to airsoft game play. This can help to warm the seals and help to seal in the green gas. It may also be worth buying a CO2 variation of your favorite pistol if you truly prefer to play with a reputable airsoft pistol in the cold. The CO2 cartridges come sealed and these guns shoot much better in sub-freezing temperatures and while playing in the snow.
Info on Spring Airsoft Pistols
Spring airsoft guns are powered by strong springs with irregular pitches that propel the BBs out of the pistol’s barrel. The manual actions of firing, reloading, and cocking spring pistols makes the fire rate much slower than CO2 and GBB handguns.
Spring sidearms and guns work best in springer battles where players can exclusively use comparable, single shot spring handguns or as a close quarters combat backup gun for CQB environments when you can often sneak up to other airsoft opponents to get a guaranteed one-shot-one-kill. In the latter case, a rapid second followup shot will not be called for because the other player is already hit by the airsoft BB and out of the game or headed back to respawn. When engaging multiple attackers given that the weapon just shoots as quick as you can re-chamber an airsoft BB manually, be cautious.
About Spring Pistol Effectiveness
Spring pistols are quite reliable under the right scenarios and airsoft games. Spring guns like pistols can normally shoot up to 120 feet or more with 0.12g BBs however accuracy reduces rapidly.
Details About AEG Automatic Electric Airsoft Handguns
AEG airsoft sidearms or AEPs (automatic electric pistols) are also a good choice to bring as a backup gun on the airsoft field. These automatic electric pistols are commonly powered by mini stick batteries in the gun’s butt. They function just like an AEG rifle and use pressured air with electrically cycled pistons, gearboxes, and cylinders to propel airsoft BBs out of the barrel and rapidly.
AEG handgun magazines usually store about 20 to 30 airsoft BBs. The pistols can fire airsoft BBs right up to around 300 FPS using 0.12g airsoft BBs or about 200 to 250 FPS using 0.20 gram airsoft BBs. The electrical gearbox system can shoot around 700+ 6mm BBs per minute assuming you have enough magazines to reload with and the battery maintains its charge that long. These AEP handguns can accurately fire airsoft BBs at around 150 foot distances.
AEG Handgun Quality and Performance
AEG pistol quality has increased considerably over the last few years. The earliest generation AEP guns were a little bit questionable and undependable, however the newer models have the issues resolved and make reliable airsoft secondary guns. They can be modded with maximized mag capacities together with accommodating larger batteries.
A substantial advantage of carrying an AEG pistol is that you have the capability to rewire the battery connectors to use a bigger battery. Depending on the AEG pistol type, you can get a huge increase in performance by taking advantage of a 2 cell Lipo battery (2S Lipo) as an alternative for the stock AEP battery.
Which Airsoft Handgun is Best for Me?
Choosing the ideal airsoft handgun for you depends upon how much you can afford to spend, how often you intend to play airsoft with it, and where you decide to play. If you can afford over one-hundred dollars to spend on your airsoft handgun, look into a green gas handgun or AEP handgun. These guns are typically the top of the line, have the greatest build qualities, and could be an excellent gun to get. Check out a CO2 handgun or less costly GBB pistol if you have about more than $50 but less than $100 to invest. These will still do the job and are pretty durable sidearms. If you have $50 or less, look for a cheap CO2 or spring handgun. You can still find a long lasting airsoft handgun to use for the pistol games.
