Best Brands Airsoft & Electric Guns By Delta Group
Spring-powered weapons are often cheaper than electric or gas-powered weapons. They are also more readily available in most department stores. Because of their low price, availability and simplicity, spring guns tend to act as “training guns” to bring new players to airsoft games and are considered the primary weapon of “backyard skirmishes”. In the UK, they are affectionately known as “springers” and were often a player’s introduction to the sport due to the entry-level cost in comparison to AEG and GBB weapons.
Almost all airsoft players at some point owned a spring weapon, whether for its actual use in a competitive event or for the replica value since some airsoft weapons are only available as spring versions. However, some veteran airsoft players still rely on sniper rifle and shotgun-type spring guns as a primary weapon due to their reliability, high power, high accuracy and low noise, as well as their ease of repair and modification compared to AEGs and GBB guns.
