16 Best Airsoft Guns of 2021: Gas, Spring, and Electric Rifles & Pistols

Even Ralphie's Mom would approve of the best airsoft guns.

Airsoft guns can be fun for all ages. Whether you're using them target practice, paintball, or just outdoor fun. Before you buy an airsoft gun, you have to know which kind you want.

There's gas, spring, and electric guns. They are also categorized by pistols and rifles.

Here are 16 of the best airsoft pistols and rifles of 2021 available on Amazon:

Best Airsoft Guns

1. Blackwater KG-9 Spring Powered Airsoft Rifle

Spring into some tactical skills with this rifle. The rapid rate of fire delivers 350 feet per second projectiles with a high capacity magazine. One customer said that the gun was underpriced for its high quality. There's nothing wrong with an inexpensive airsoft gun if it does the job.

2. KWA M11A1 Gas Blowback Airsoft SMG

KWA's gas airsoft gun has an adjustable hop-up, and gas operated blowback. Ricky gave it five stars and wrote, "this is pretty accurate and feels great with a realistic blowback and action. Once you figure it all out it is very good. You will use more gas in full auto so get a few cans. Can dry fire on full auto for special occasions."

3. Spring Airsoft Pistol

This would be a great entry-level airsoft pistol, or for someone who wants a gun that's just simple and fun.

Customers say the slide isn't hard to pull back. There's a built-in hop-up system, and a 400-count of airsoft BBs included. Two other nice features include the brass inner barrel and fixed front and rear iron sights.

4. Evike Airsoft Sniper Rifle

This rifle has been compared to the Tokyo Marui VSR-10 bolt action sniper rifle. It has 5 stars! If you're a 5-star kind of shopper on Amazon, go with this airsoft sniper rifle.

5. Game Face Spring Powered Airsoft Rifle

This spring-powered rifle shoots up to 350 fps and has a high capacity 400-round magazine. There are also removable sights.

6. Black Ops Airsoft Pistol

This is great for gas gun lovers. You'll get maximum accuracy even when shooting at long ranges. This semi-automatic (semi-auto) CO2 powered gun shoots 400 FPS. There's even a bipod-ready mount. This high-quality airsoft works great as a sidearm.

It'd be perfect for airsoft players who play airsoft games.

7. Umarex Airsoft Handgun

A huge perk on this one is the smooth metal slide. The magazine capacity is 15 rounds, and it shoots up to 380 fps. There's a side hole for an easy reload. The recoil is unbelievable, and a customer even compared the kick to a real blowback. Watch the video for yourself!

8. BBTac Full Auto Rifle

The sling is a huge selling factor for me. This AEG comes with a magazine, battery, and charger. Reviews say it doesn't shoot as far as they would like, but that makes it good fun for some backyard plinking.

9. Umarex Heckler & Koch Electric Airsoft Rifle

This automatic electric airsoft gun has a picatinny rail and top rail for attaching scopes and red dot lights. The shot velocity is 340 FPS. What more could you ask for?

10. Elite Force HK Heckler & Koch VP9 GBB Blowback 6mm BB Pistol Airsoft Gun, FDE, Multi, One Size (2275025)

Elite Force is a top brand for all things airsoft. It features an integrated 20mm accessory rail and has a comfy grip. It shoots 6mm plastic airsoft BBs up to 325 FPS!

11. Avalon Saber M-LOK Gen2 AEG

This airsoft gun is a bit pricy, but must-have specs include flip-up front and rear sights, and a high torque motor.

Check out Game Face's airsoft rifle. The electric powered rifle delivers speeds up to 375 FPS! Shawn gave it five stars and said, "I would highly recommend this to anyone trying to buy airsoft full automatic gun it will do 800 rounds a minute."

13. Colt M4A1 CQBR Dark Earth Combat Electric Powered Airsoft Gun with Adjustable Hop-Up, 453 FPS

Colt's M4A1 airsoft gun holds 350 rounds. The rear sight can be replaced with an aftermarket optic such as a red dot or scope.

It's lightweight, but this thing is powerful.

14. Lancer Tactical Gen 2 Upgraded RIS LT-04 AEG Metal Gear Airsoft Gun, Dark Earth

Lancer Tactical's airsoft gun is too good. Ethan says, "I'm absolutely in love with this gun. I play on the field and it easily conpetes and is on par with most of the guns that are in the $400 to $500 price range!"

The 6.03 tightbore inner barrel provides more accuracy.

15. KWA AEG 2.5 QRF MOD.2 Full Metal MLok Rail CQB Airsoft w/Adjustable FPS

KWA says the QRF MOD.2 sets the airsoft standard on what a perfect CQB AEG rifle should be. It is a bit pricey, but this airsoft gun is everything the MOD.1 is but 100 times better.

16. Lancer Tactical Interceptor SPR (Black LT-25B)

A customer review says, "I love this gun!!!! It's a great beginner and pro gun. It is as heavy as a metal gun and shoots up to a whopping 410 FPS." Not bad. Grab one of the best airsoft guns from Amazon for under $200.
