Airsoft Replicas

 

 

I discovered airsoft by accident in the autumn of 2002, stumbling over a picture thread in the hobbies forum at tech site [H]ardOCP. I'd built a fair few of what are now called "springers" from plastic kits in my early teens (one of them is still in the display cabinet here, even now), but although I'd occasionally noticed replicas in model shops over the intervening years I'd had no idea that the technology had advanced so much! In fact, even as a some-time aficionado of the real thing I was extremely impressed by how realistic the best of the replicas were. A few minutes into the thread I opened extra windows to search for reviews and UK suppliers - it was already obvious that I was going to buy something, the only question was what...

It was immediately apparent that the big name in assault rifles was Tokyo Marui, but that for handguns Western Arms were the most highly regarded for authenticity, quality and finish. I had a hankering for an automatic, and the recently launched Beretta M92 "Perfect Version" appeared to be the most realistic yet. Four months and five guns later, it's becoming quite a collection. Future acquisitions could be a sniper rifle, possibly the Eastern Bloc's marvellous SVD Dragunov, and a support machine gun along the lines of the M60 or M249. We shall see...
