Blowback

When it comes to authenticity in airsoft, gas blowback airsoft pistols are as real as it gets. The term “Blowback” refers to the action of the slide, which moves back and forth with each trigger pull providing a satisfying kick. Players often choose gas blowback pistols as they are extremely accurate representations of real firearms, and are used extensively by military forces worldwide for training or simulation purposes.

Blowback BB pistols function very much like a real firearm, making them very popular for players who want the most authentic experience when it comes to airsoft warfare. Whether you're looking for your favorite iconic pistol or want to switch it up with something fresh, we are sure to have everything you need and more here at Airsoft Station.

Here at Airsoft Station, we offer a large variety of fully licensed pistols that are full 1:1 scale replicas of some of the most sought after models available including GLOCK, Smith & Wesson, & FN Herstal to name a few. Some pistols, like our GLOCK selection, can actually use parts & accessories from their real-steel counterpart; opening up a wide range of customization options.

Gas blowback BB guns operate on either a single 12g Co2 cartridge or Green Gas/propane, which is typically held within the drop-free gun magazine. While the operation is often the same, having a CO2 powered airsoft gun will require different filling than a Green Gas gun. It’s important to pay attention to what propellant your airsoft pistol uses, so you can stock up on everything you need ahead of time. Although blowback airsoft pistols are very realistic, they often use more gas than a non-blowback pistol and you may find yourself filling up more often.

Gas blowback airsoft pistols are relatively simple in design and are powered by internal compression within the pistol, making them easy to field strip for maintenance or cleaning. Green Gas and CO2 BB guns have more complicated mechanics that spring rifles, making them a great choice for anyone looking to upgrade their airsoft game.
