Gas powered airsoft pistols are the preferred sidearms of most airsoft enthusiasts since they are very reliable and easy to use. The gas technology gives them both power and realism, and allows for instantaneous trigger response time. This makes them quicker than electric air pistols. Using powerful green gas, CO2, or propane, gas is the best way to go if you are serious about your airsoft gun game.
Blowback vs. Non-Blowback
Gas blowback pistols are by far the most realistic gas powered airsoft guns on the market. The slide on the gun will shoot back after each shot fired, which makes them feel like a real handgun. Non-blowback guns do not have that feature which makes them less expensive but more gas efficient. If you are not familiar with what a blowback airsoft gun looks and feels like you can watch this video of the KWA M93R in action, which is one of the many excellent gas blowback pistols that we carry at Airsoft Station!
