How to Use an Airsoft Pistol





Introduction: How to Use an Airsoft Pistol

This is a noob's guide on how to use an Airsoft pistol. The gun I'm using is a spring-Loaded P226. I know it's pink, and I will just spray paint over that. This instructable just shows you how to use it right and how to troubleshoot.

Step 1: Magazine Release

The magazine release is on only one side of the gun. Just push it, and load in a new mag and keep shooting.

Step 2: Slide

To keep shooting a sprig-powered gun, just pull back in the slide. It may be hard at first, but after a while, you get used to it

Step 3: Fire Selector


Step 4: Aiming Down

Whenever you aim down your sights, never use one hand, or you will have a severe case of "buck fever".

Step 5: Reloading

When you reload, hold the other mag In your hand and your gun in the other. When doing this, you can really speed up your reload. My fastest reload time for this was 0.7 seconds, while my normal reload time was 1.6 seconds.

Step 6: Troubleshooting

If you have a BB jammed in your gun, you can just take off the slide. I believe that many Airsoft pistols have this.
