Let’s Begin with Spingers

The spring variety of airsoft guns is a high speed, high accuracy variety of Relica airsoft airguns, which can be used by all. Whether you are a professional or an amateur beginner, both can manage this variety. There are few reasons that make the spring guns an item of utility for both experienced and beginners. The reason is that the springers do not need gas, charging, batteries to operate. The only drawback is that those who own an electric gun should refrain from using a springer.


If you own an airsoft gun, here is the manual to loading the arm before you are ready to aim and fire. Understanding the gun type is the first step to handling it. The rest of the steps are mentioned as follows:

STEP 1: Separate the magazine from the gun. For doing this you will need to press the magazine release located either near the top of the magazine or on the hand grip in case of a pistol.In case of a high-cap magazine, there will be a door that you can slide to open, located at the top of the magazine. There would be a hole for the BBs to out from.

Step 2: You will now be required to use a speed loader and to put the end where the BBs come out of, into the opening. Thereafter, you will be required to press down on the lever. At a time, 3-4 3-4 BBs come out on press down the lever. You can now close the door, after having filled.

STEP 3: In case of a magazine without a high capacity, you need to stop if you feel any resistance or when you feel that no more BBs can fill inside. Filling pistols can be much more tricky because you will have to fill in one by one. You will be required to take one BB, put it in the hole on the magazine top, push it in and load. You will have to repeat one by one, until full.

STEP 4: For loading the magazine, you need to insert it with the end with the container where the BBs come out of. The ‘click’ voice indicates that the magazine has been fully and properly inserted.

Having loaded your airsoft guns and pistols, you are now ready to aim and fire. However, there are some safety guidelines that you must read for being able to properly operate these guns. Always remember to put the safety mode on prior to using the gun. This should be done even prior to loading the gun. Aiming at the target is done by adjusting the front sight with the rear sight. Next, turn off the safety. Control and normalize your breath and bring your heart beat to slower pace. Having aimed the target, and as you are controlling your breath, pull the trigger. Squeeze the trigger!

Well done on hitting your target in a single shot. And, even if you missed it, be patient that with every shot that you take, you will get better.
