What is the best beginner Airsoft gun

‘What is the best beginner airsoft gun?’ is probably the most common question we get asked at Just BB Guns. So for this article, we’ll go into our top picks for airsoft guns we recommend for beginners. Out of all of our airsoft guns, we believe that the following are perfect for beginners thanks to their upgrade options and, most importantly, their price.

In airsoft, there are so many different options to pick from, so beginners can find it a nightmare selecting the right gun to start out with. So many people find themselves questioning how much they should spend, what brands are the best, and which they should buy; we hope this article will help if you are one of those people.

It can be a bit of a minefield when recommending airsoft guns due to peoples price range expectations. We suggest a budget of between £100 – £200 for a good airsoft gun to start skirmishing. If you have a bit more to spend, you will get a more durable gun, something that is full metal and built to take a bashing. However, there is nothing wrong with picking the cheaper sub £100 sportsline models; they are not full metal and may not take a bashing like the full metal options but will deliver the same performance.

So let’s dive into our recommendations. Please note, our recommendations are all two-tone guns, however black and tan options are available.

Bulldog Airsoft Sportsline M4PG and M4PI Electric Airsoft Guns (Sub £100)

Without a doubt, these are the most popular starter Airsoft guns on Just BB Guns to date. When it comes to reliability, quality, and ease of use, the M4PG and M4PI are leaps and bounds ahead of any other airsoft gun in their price range. In addition, both models come with a full length 20mm RIS / RAS top rail for attaching sights, scopes and more, as well as a four-point 20mm handguard for bipods, grips and other aftermarket attachments, leaving plenty of room for modifications. These assault rifles are available in blue, black and tan…

Although designed on the traditional M4 platform, these assault rifles have a new design tactical stock and handguard system. The Bulldog airsoft ST Mamba P1 and P2 are recommended for beginners due to their low cost; however, if you can stretch the budget, the full metal Gen2 and gen3 are excellent.
