Tips on Buying a Pump BB Gun
Are you a fan of Airsoft? If so, then you will have heard of Airsoft Pump Guns. This is a unique type of gun that functions by using a compressed gas to propel a BB through the barrel at a very high velocity. The uniqueness of this gun lies in its ability to shoot BBs even when under the influence of gravity. This is why this is one of the most sought after guns around. But how do you pick the right gun?
There are two types of Airsoft Pump Guns. One is a semi-automatic which means you must use a handle to manually fire it. The other is an automatic one which requires you to press a button to fire. Both types of these guns come with different features and uses. So what factors should you consider when buying one of these guns? Here is a buying guide that may help you in picking out the best gun.
First, consider the power of the gun. BBs for Airsoft guns are usually big in size so you would want a gun that can pump BBs into long distances. However, if you are using the gun in a tournament or for Airsoft skirmishes, you will probably want a smaller gun that can pump only a few BBs per minute. For example, if it is your first time to buy a gun, then you should choose a mini one. It is not recommended for general use.
Next, you should consider how the gun is powered. If you are buying a pump gun, then you would need to check out whether or not the gun needs manual or automatic pumping. You also need to check whether you need a gun that pumps only once per minute or per second or something in between.
Another factor that you should consider when buying a pump gun is its accuracy. To determine this, you need to take a look at how accurate the firing sound from the gun is. If the gun makes booms every time you fire it, then it might be best for you to buy one that has a lot of accuracy. On the other hand, if the booms are very rare, then maybe you should buy a general purpose one. The rule here is to weigh the pros and cons of each kind of gun to ensure that you are making the right choice.
You should also think about how easy it is to use the gun. Do you need a gun that can pump multiple BBs per minute and can shoot hundred pellets per second? Or do you only need one gun that can pump one BB per minute? This is the kind of question that will help you determine what kind of gun is best for you.
Last but not least, you need to check out the different pump guns. Each gun usually has its own features. It would be best for you to test each feature out to make sure that it can perform as you expect it to. Once you are done testing, you will have better understanding on which features are more important for you.
Pump guns are perfect additions to your collection. However, you still need to be very careful in buying one. Just remember the tips mentioned above. If you still have no idea on which gun to buy, then you can always consult an expert to give you advice. There are lots of gun experts who can give you advice on what type of gun to buy based on your needs and wants.
