Recommend a beginner a spring pistol

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

So, I'm just getting into the scene, and I've decided to start out with a spring pistol. I've bought a cheap spring pistol from the ice cream man about a month ago and it broke within 3 days.. Lol!

 

So yeah, I think I should get a higher quality pistol. I've checked the "spring pistol buyers guide" and I didn't really understand much of it. ha. My budget as of right now, and I know it's not much, but it's $25ish. What I would really like including in this gun is either the hop-up system or the BAX system. And I prefer the more minimalistic/plain/simple/compact style of handguns (I.e. the glock and such)

 

So any help would be greatly appreciated and links would be great as well.

 

Thanks!

I remember having a Walther P99 about 6 years ago that lasted me a long time.

Keep in mind though with any springer pistol, they most likely will break easily so handle them with care.

The reviews on that gun kind of scare me. :/ I'll keep it in mind though, it does look pretty cool.

 

Another thing I forgot to mention is I REALLY want the adjustable hop-up feature. Ever since I heard about adjustable hop-up, I've always wanted to mess with one. Fixed seems cool but adjustable seems funner. haha.

You really aren't going to have much of a choice with Springers..If you want hop-up that bad save for a Gas gun or CO2

 

Ah I understand. :/ I kind of just want a spring gun for now, and hopefully if I really get into the airsoft world, I'll begin to look into gas and C02 guns.

 

Another question, I know you've probably never used these pistols but, I'm sure your airsoft knowledge is far superior to mine so which out of these two would you recommend?

I've got a KWC springer pistol that's really nice. Not adjustable, but shoots decent. Its the M&P model. Worth looking into.

 

Personally, for 25 bucks, keep it until you have 50-75. In that range there are a lot more guns that are worth having....trishots, used aegs, shotguns, used AEPs, etc.

Dear Sir-There are some VERY high quality ALL METAL Galaxy brand springer airsoft pistols on EBaay from $12-$25.00 SHIPPED. I have their Colt pocket .25, M1911 and their C96 Mauser. These are so high quality that you risk damage shooting cheap .12 bb's in them. I use only King Arms .2 bb's.

Here's a link to EBay, but looking up all metal airsoft should bring up many of the Galaxy pistols:

Please don't use eBay to link a product--the auctions will end and eventually expire after a while and so the link will become useless for future reference.
