    Airsoft Gun

    Following on from part one and part two of our guide to airsoft brands, like the Terminator, we are back. One of the best problems with airsoft is the sheer number of manufacturers there are. Either specialising in bringing specific designs to market, or focused in bringing a range of setups and guns, either at great prices or with high performance (occasionally both). In this article, we take a look at another set of airsoft manufacturers and brands and uncover what they are all about. Like in previous articles, we'll group them as either a 'budget' or 'performance' brand; however, there will occasionally be some crossover.

The trigger, as with all weapons initiates the firing process with the firing action occurring either in line or slightly in front of the trigger.

    Here at the Surplus Store, we’re all about trying to introduce new people to the sport of airsoft, however, something that seems to be tripping a few new players up is the diverse and sometimes confusing vocabulary that the sport has adopted.
