I know this site has a fair amount of people who truly do airsoft. I just got one and i was wondering what you think. It's a Colt M1911A1 i got from Dick's sporting goods. I'm not doing battles or anything, it's just for fun. Price: $34.99 Ammo i use: 20 gram white pellet Magazine capacity: 12 Firing: spring Material: mostly plastic, but mechanics are metal. FPS: 315 So, what do think? 1-10.

Anyone have any good airsoft ideas, devices, bombs, claymores, or other things to help you get the upper hand in an airsoft war, because I'm getting owned by higher fps guns with a faster rate of fire. Any sort or non toxic smoke bomb would be nice. Just post anything related to airsoft here...

Hey guys. Im trying to make a homemade airsoft gun, and have many ideas about it but im stuck on one thing. How does the BB stay in without rolling. If i have a magazing, as long as the pellet doesn't move i can have a gravity/spring fed magazine without a problem. someone please help! How does the pellet not roll in the barrel when it is chambered and ready to go? thanks, tristan

I bought a crappy ak-47 airsoft rifle, but it broke. Can anybody tell me how to fix it? Before you ask, what happens is it somewhat works on semi, but when it goes to full auto, it works the same as in semi. I can press the trigger very rapidly on full auto and it will go full auto. Can anyone help??

Hey, I was wondering if anyone would want to see how to set up an Airsoft L96 to take AR style magazines. I need a decent amount of people who want to see because of the cost and difficultly of redoing the project to make instructions. Also check out our team page for videos! http://www.youtube.com/user/eraairsoftteam

When I open Airsoft megastore.com on google chrome, put something into my cart, then hit checkout, Chrome says the site is not safe to input valuable or personal information to. This got me thinking as to why it wouldnt be safe. No security protection against hackers? Or has it been hacked and if I input my credit card info will they be able to steal my info? I just dont want anyone getting ahold of my credit card info and buying stuff... Is ASM a trustworthy site, and Chrome just has a glitch or something that is causing the site to be deemed 'unsafe'? Or is it all a scam? This dillema has stopped me from buying a gun during their black Friday Doorbuster Deals, which was a great deal. Oh well better safe than sorry I guess. Thanks

When i say airsoft for "reals" i mean not springers unless it is a high quality sniper rifle. and by high quality i mean 250 for stock gun and 800 dollars more in upgrades... just wondering, anyone else rock AEG's, gas pistols, sniper rifles?.. etc.... familiar with brands like tokyo marui, classic army, ics, g&g, tanaka, western arms, etc etc. also... not playing in parks, backyards... in the house. or places that will ruin the sport by getting shot to death by cops. even if it does have an orange tip, cops come anyways when they're called. and yes they are ready to blast you away if they feel their life is in danger... legally too. i would know. personal experience which was years ago. by no means am i bashing people.. im not saying that playing with springers is not okay, i understand not everybody has the time or money. its just i noticed a lack of any airsoft instructables for those serious about the sport?... and yes i've spent well into the thousands for the sport, no i dont think its a waste of money, i have a lot of fun doing my thing.

I want to build a large spring airsoft rifle that looks as realistic as possible. I will be using a large very strong spring from ace hardware. I want it to be as efficient as possible but i want it to also be very cheap. Any ideas? I would prefer a metal body, but wood or plastic would be ok. I was also wondering if somebody had a drawing of the trigger mech and magazine assembly. i was thinking a brass inner barrel with a larger metal or pvc outer barrel. i want the gun to look like the one in the picture. i think it's a mauser

Question by spottydodz
Hey.... i tryin to think of ways to improve my guns... I have 2 spring rifles (a good sniper and a crappy assaultish style) and 1 pistol (also spring)... it would be much appreciated if someone could make an instructable that would allow you to make a bipod that does not use tape to attach to gun (folding = happy), as well as a pistol that isnt a pen gone blowgun. add any other improvements also, such as your own scope rings that attach to weaver rails.

I've been looking for a way to make an airsoft mortar which uses either tension (by way of wrist rocket or similar bands) or compression (by way of a spring). I'm thinking it'd be similar to the trip mine here:https://www.instructables.com/id/Build-an-Airsoft-Trip-Mine/If anybody could give me ideas or post an instructable, that would be great. I don't want to use air compressors or light anything on fire, because it's just not practical mid game (that would also be just a manipulation of a potato gun). I also think compression or tension could be a lot safer if done properly. Any ideas on making shells to hold airsoft bb's and properly disperse them when fired would be great too.P.S. I'm totally willing to offer my input on the situation if somebody else wants to collaborate on such an 'ible.
