How an Airsoft works and what are the types available

How an Airsoft works and what are the types available. Like BB guns, there are a few varieties of BB guns that can be used:

Spring Operated

These are single shot pistols that use a spring to push a piston air pump forward, which in turn pressurizes the air inside a pump cylinder. This air will then fire the BB (or other shells) from the barrel. Initially, the shooter must compress the spring, which is usually a bolt handle (with rifles) or a pump (for a shotgun). Spring-loaded airsoft guns are not as powerful as gas-powered ones, but more powerful than electric ones. These spring loaded airsoft guns are also classified as “mechanical”.

Electric or Battery Powered

These airsoft guns also use a spring piston delivery mechanism, but they use a battery to transmit power to the motor which will automatically compress the spring for you. This gives the weapon the ability of a semi-auto mode, something the spring-loaded variety can never offer. Keep in mind that there are several different flavors of battery-powered airsoft guns, from automatics to lower-powered models.

Gas-powered

Also known as “pneumatics”, they use the energy stored in the compressed gas to force the bullet out of the cannon. Within this group of gasoline, there are some subvarieties. The most common are gas blowback pistols. These will have a container that is usually contained within the charger that stores the compressed gas. Pulling the trigger releases a small amount of this gas. This system also uses the gas to load the next shot and create a sensation similar to recoil. Unlike some types of air rifles, CO2 is not typically used like this gas. Gas powered Airsoft guns use what is known as green gas (this is basically propane mixed with silicone oil).

Hybrid

This is a new type of airsoft gun that are basically modified versions of the automatic electric pistols (AEG) or similar to the gas type. Both types involve loading the BBs into a shell. The AEG has an electrically powered recoil system and causes the shell to be ejected after firing each round. The gas blowback type uses a tank containing compressed gas for propellant and is a method of adapting to multiple fire capability. Note that none of these are particularly common these days.
