So, you’ve decided to get into airsoft – welcome to the obsession! Airsoft is a great blend of a hobby and a sport, and you’re going to have a lot of fun playing. One of the most important things you need to consider before you get out to play again is what kind of gun to buy for your first.
There are tons of options out there and it can be really overwhelming. At this point you don’t want to spend top dollar on a top of the line gun; you also don’t want to buy a cheap piece of junk, either. What you need now is a good beginner’s rifle; something that will perform well and is affordable.
There are plenty of replicas on the market geared toward beginners, but not all of them are actually worth your money. We’ve put together a list of some of the best choices right now so you can both buy with confidence and spend less time looking around and more time on the field.
This hobby can get expensive, so buying a beginner rifle that will last a few years will allow you to find out what kind of player you are while allowing you to spend money on other things you’ll need like eye protection, gear, etc.
