How Much Power Do They Have Airsoft

How Much Power Do They Have Airsoft

Airsoft guns are designed to have a lower muzzle velocity than airguns. This might not mean much to everyone but the usually deliver less than about 1.1 ft/lb. The projectiles used also have less mass to them, so less penetrative power than your average airgun.

Departure speed and speed ends.

The Muzzle velocities are usually in the range of 200 to 390 fps
(feet per second) for the automatic electric airsoft guns and between 390 to 560 fps for the single-shot spring-powered guns.

They can typically shoot up to a range of around 110 yards (100 m) but this is a high-quality example and is not common. Typically, most of the airsoft guns will only have a range of around 55 yards (50 m).
Airguns

Raising the power of the weapon.

The power of an airgun varies depending on a lot of different things. The power-unit of the gun (spring-piston, PCP, CO2, etc.), the caliber of the pellet (.177, .22, etc.) and the type of pellet used primarily.

You will see much higher numbers for power deliver than airsoft guns. For instance, there are many .177 rifles that deliver 20 ft/lbs. Similarly, some .22 rifles are capable of 25 ft/lb and if you’re looking at the higher caliber rifles, for instance, the .25 cal weapon then you could be seeing a somewhat scary 38 ft/lb. This kind of stopping power will stop large mammals, quickly.

Regarding the speed of the pellet as it leaves the muzzle?

This can vary tremendously but a few are known to be able to shoot at around 1400 fps. How fast is that? Well, that’s around 955 mph. After shooting something out of your rifle at this speed you will hear a second crack. This crack is the pellet breaking the speed of sound (which is around 750 mph depending on temperature).

Distance you can reach.

As for distance, well an airgun pellet will certainly travel a lot further than an airsoft BB. With so many variables involved it’s difficult to get a definitive number but we’re probably looking at around half a mile. Of course, it depends on what type of gun you’re shooting. If you’re using a little .177 pistol then 50 feet might be pushing it!
