Updated on July 26, 2013

Airsoft Rifles

Airsoft rifles are hands down the most powerful and accurate of airsoft guns. They are strong, durable, and are the most effective at taking out enemies in any airsoft game. Plus, they come in all price ranges, so whether you are an amateur or professional, you can find what works for you.

Whether you are interested in a spring, electric, or gas-powered rifle, this lens will give you the lowdown on the benefits and drawbacks of each type.

Three Tips for Buying Airsoft Rifles

When buying an airsoft rifle, you need to consider a few things so that you end up with a product you like. By following the subsequent tips, you can ensure you find the product that suits you.

1. Know What You Will Use the Rifle For - If you are only going to be using it for target practice, then a spring rifle will suffice. Otherwise, you will need something electric.

2. Know How Much You Want to Spend - Products that come from a prestigious brand, like Classic Army, are more expensive than generic ones. If you don't want to spend a lot of money, then a less expensive rifle will suffice.

3. Find A Good Retailer - Some retailers overprice their products in the hopes of making a bigger profit. Find a retailer that has an interest in the customer, and will provide you with the best price.

As long as you follow these tips, you can be sure that you'll get the best product available.

Types of Airsoft Rifles

The Main Kinds

There are three main types of airsoft rifles, and they are categorized based on how they are powered. First is the spring rifle, which uses a basic spring and is not automatic; you have to cock it before each shot. However, these rifles are still fairly powerful and good for target practice. A special type of spring rifle is the sniper rifle..

Next is the electric airsoft rifle, one of the most used guns in airsoft. It utilizes a battery and a spring to quickly shoot BBs. The size of battery utilized greatly influences the ultimate power of the rifle, so if you have an opportunity to increase the power through the acquisition of a stronger battery, it is something you should consider.

Finally, there is the gas rifle. These are extremely powerful, and can reach speeds over 400fps. The only downside is that you need to continually buy gas, but as long as you can afford it, then it is a good option. Gas snipers are especially powerful and accurate.

Polar Star Airsoft Rifles

One of the highest quality brands in terms of airsoft rifles is Polar Star. The company started as an engineering firm specializing in the racecar industry. Just that fact alone is a testament to the quality and raw power that they bring to airsoft. Their products are of the highest quality, durability, effectiveness, and versatility. As importantly, or even moreso, they have brought a new level of innovation to the field of airsoft, which is not something you find often with other companies.

For example, their airsoft rifles are jam packed with technological features that you may not have even heard of before. One such feature is the LCD screen, which allows players to toggle key specifications like rounds-per-second and feet-per-second measures through an electronic interface. This is much easier and more accurate than modifying these specs manually, and the capability also enables players to make modifications during the middle of a game.

Polar Star is a relatively new entrant to the airsoft market, so the offerings they will have in the future can only get better. Be on the lookout for whatever comes next!
