What is Airsoft?
If you've managed to find your way to this website without knowing what Airsoft Actually is, don't worry, you'll know soon enough. Airsoft is a game where players shoot each other with replica guns that fire 6mm Plastic BB projectiles in a variety of game modes ranging from Team Deathmatch, to Search and Destroy and other objective-based games. When a player gets hit they must raise their hand and shout hit (depending on the site you play at), and is based on an honour system where players admit they are shot. If you've ever played Paintball, Laser Tag, or any other similar type game, this is next level, with Airsoft offering a much more realistic and adrenaline-fuelled experience.
Aren't they just BB guns?
Technically, yes, they're just BB guns, but these BB guns are not your everyday Scarborough specials, they're fully-fledged high powered professional player level replica designed for competitive Airsoft Skirmishing.
When something is described as a BB gun you'll typically find that they're cheaper, but that is representative of their quality. Airsoft replicas look more realistic, function better, and are much better recreations of the original piece.
Airsoft guns play harder, fire further, and have way more customisation options than any bog-standard BB gun you'll find down at your local market!
Can I just buy any Airsoft gun right away?
In a way, yes you can, however, you won't be able to buy a replica unless it is more than half a bright non-military colour such as Red, Blue, or Green, also known at Two-Tone. This is due to the Violent Crimes Reduction Act (VCRA, 2006), which was put in place by the Government to prevent the misuse of Replica and Prop Firearms. Typically to buy a military coloured you will need to prove that you are an Airsoft Skirmisher by showing us you have a valid UKARA or Airsoft Defence.
As we know a lot of players love a wide range of guns we offer a Two-Tone Service which means we can spray any gun you see on our website with a bright colour to make it VCRA compliant. When completing a Two-Tone Service we strip down the weapon to its component parts, spray sections of it a bright colour of your choice, and then rebuild and test the weapon. This means that even if you want your first Airsoft gun to be your favourite heavy machine gun or even a sniper rifle, we can get it sorted for you!
Even if you're new to the Airsoft scene, or you're a seasoned veteran, don't worry, we've got something for you.
