somemore sophisticated types. Te lack of a recoiling slide can aid accuracy.


GBB (GAS BLOWBACK)


Very popular, these are generally better-mademodels that look extremely authentic.Some are licensed by themakers of the actual firearms they replicate. Popular with skirmishers and


collectors alike, they also feel realistic to use: the slide is forced back by a proportion of the gas used to propel the plastic BB pellets and in so doing adds the effect of recoil for extra realism.


AEG (AUTOMATIC ELECTRIC GUNS)


Agrowing sector,with Far Easternmanufacturers really dominating this sector – although ActionSportGames inDenmark


has recently unveiled itsDanish- made Scorpion Evomodel to great acclaim. AEGs are capable of


sustained fire (where permitted) with complex electricmotors and gearboxes to operate the mechanismand feed pellets from the high-capacitymagazines. Some carry the batteries on


board,while others are linked to Li-Po power packs within the webbing worn by some competitors.Durability and reliability can involve paying extra, given the complexity of operation.


MILSIM


Atermfrequently heard in the airsoft world isMilSim, an abbreviation ofmilitary simulation. Te idea is to engage inmilitary or law enforcement-style combat
