Nothing about Airsoft is easy or even intuitive, at least to beginners, novices, or people just looking to get into airsoft. Some brands make guns with good externals but cheap internals; some airsoft brands are vice versa. Some brands are just American or British resellers for guns coming overseas, and you would never know if you didn’t have insider knowledge or did your research – the resellers stamp their own brands on the guns, passing them off as their own. So what are the most trusted airsoft gun brands that the pros rely on?
Here is a list of what Airsoft Gun Guy considers the most reputable airsoft gun manufacturers. These brands make guns that last and won’t crap out on you in the middle of a firefight within a month of your purchase.
Editor’s Note: We are assuming if you’re reading this list that you don’t have $500 or $1500 to spend on a stock rifle, so we have left Real Sword and Systema off the list, respectively. We know they’re the Ferrari and Lamborghini of Airsoft gun manufacturers, but we’ve got to be realistic here.
