Airsoft Targeting

Introduction: Airsoft Targeting

Airsoft targeting is a hard to master skill. whether your using a Tokyo Mauri fully  auto assault rifle or a p9 stinger pistol. you may want to consider a scope for your airsoft gun such as the Tasco 4x20.  Your gun may have came with a red dot scope but you still might want to consider upgrading. If you don't have any sight what so ever that's okay this guide is still for you.

Step 1: Aligning Your Gun Sight

If you don't have a scope on your gun skip to part 2.
Now there are alot of scopes out there so I will be telling you 1 way of tuning them.

  • 1

    Learn how to properly boresight a gun in order to mount it correctly. Boresighting involves using both the barrel (or bore) of the rifle and the rifle scope to focus on a nearby fixed object. By alternating your viewpoint between the two lines of sight, you will be able to adjust the scope until the viewpoint is the same. Ensure that the gun does not move during this process, however, or the alignment will be wrong.

  • 2

    Fire a few practice rounds, if you are able, to see how closely the boresighting process aligned the rifle scope. Try to shoot in a tightly focused pattern, which will immediately tell you how accurate your sights are.

    Make more fine-tuned adjustments on your scope by adjusting the alignment wheels on your scope. On most scopes, one knob will control the horizontal alignment of the rifle scope, and the other will adjust the scope on the vertical plane. Depending upon the scope, each click of the knob will result in an adjustment that is either 1/4 or 1/2 of an inch.

    Become comfortable with operating the focus knob, so that you will be able to make quick and fluid adjustments when you are out hunting in the field. While many modern scopes feature an automatic or speed focus feature that does the work for you, you will still need to familiarize yourself with how quickly they work so you will be able to time your shots more efficiently.

  • 5

    Know how to use the crosshairs of the scope to become more accurate with your shots. Many modern scopes use crosshairs that can help you estimate bullet drop and wind direction, and some even offer illuminated bulls eyes or laser guides to increase your skills even further.

  • Step 2: Using Your Pistol Sight

    there are many different sights so this step is on pistols if you have a rifle then go to part 3.
    this is the type of pistol i have the p9 stinger. Now to sight you look down the top of the gun through the part on the back and align it with the part on the front it should form a perfect rectangle now aim your front sight at your target then align it with your back sight and your ready to fire.

    Step 3: Using Your Rifle Sight

    now there are usually two sights for airsoft rifles a red dot or a scope both are in pictures down below. a scope you look through to spot your target image 3. A red dot sight you put the red aimed directly at the target your aiming for and shoot. image 4.

      Wow, you CoDheads can't even identify your own game series. That's Call of Duty 4, maggot, which is last great game in the series.

      Then your intelligence is less than previously expected. Unless you're trying to play Modern Warfare 2 on a "Papa Oscar Sierra" computer. Until then, this is Call of Duty 4.

      Hey mate, I don't like to say negative things on people's instructables but this is not original info. I actually saw this on a couple airsoft websites a couple days ago and it is the exact same thing. Maybe what you could do is delete this 'ible and then publish another one but use your own info and pictures next time!
