Airsoft Weapon Mags
Airsoft guns shoot airsoft BBs. These BBs are normally housed in the weapon’s magazine. These magazines typically connect to the airsoft gun similar to the real weapons they are modeled after. The types of airsoft gun magazines include real capacity, mid capacity, and high capacity mags.
Airsoft Weapon Mag Types
Airsoft weapon mags come in multiple types like real capacity, mid capacity, and high capacity mags. Real capacity magazines, or real-caps, mimic the amount of airsoft BBs a genuine gun would store, which is typically about 24 to 30 BBs. Mid capability magazines, or mid-caps, permit for additional airsoft BB storage with capacities about 120 to 160 BBs.
Information on How Airsoft Magazines Work
Airsoft mags have a series of internal channels and BB storage locations. The BBs are usually loaded into these channels with a spring attached to the extremely far end. When the BBs are loaded, they compress the spring developing tension. On the load end, a small lock holds the BBs in the magazine. When a BB is fired, the airsoft weapon launches the lock for a fraction of a second and loads another BB into the weapon out of the mag. HPA, CO2, and GBB guns, which use compressed air or green gas, will often store the gas or feed air in through the magazine. This feeds BBs into the guns for these types of systems.
Airsoft Rifle Magazines
Airsoft rifle mags are most typically used in automatic electric guns (AEGs) and some types of sniper rifles. Learn about how airsoft AEGs shoot BBs. 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.
High-Cap LMG Mag Info
Some airsoft AEGs and squad automatic weapons like SAWs use very large capacity magazines. They can hold up to thousands of BBs and provide fire support for a unit or fireteam.
About Airsoft SMG Mags
Airsoft SMG magazines AEG are also separated by weapon model and usable between different submachine guns (SMGs). These SMG magazines 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 Magazines for Green Gas and HPA Systems Green gas rifles (including GBB versions) and guns powered by high pressure air (HPA) frequently have their own customized design depending upon the airsoft weapon brand. These mags use air and gas to operate so the magazines frequently include builtin gas reservoirs or are pre-tapped for HPA tank connections. The magazines used in GBB guns keep gas in the mag so the rifle cycles every shot and feeds in the next BB. HPA pre-tapped mags use HPA lines which are connected to the valves and help the pressurized air to stream in through the magazine. This setup feeds the airsoft BBs into the HPA weapon.
Airsoft Pistol Mags Info
Airsoft handgun magazines are frequently less flexible when compared to the AEG mags used in smgs and rifles. Many airsoft handgun magazines can hold around 20 to 30 airsoft BBs.
