Best Beginner Airsoft Guns Reviews

Are you looking for a small, simple and affordable airsoft gun that can’t do too much damage? If so, you’ve come to the right place, because we’re about to help you find the best beginners airsoft guns on the market right now!

1. Wingun 701s 4 Revolver

The Wingun 701s 4 Revolver aims straight enough and it shoots fairly flat too, so although accuracy is questionable when compared to other airsoft revolvers, it actually fares pretty well.

Here we have a cool little airsoft revolverwhich comes at a fairly moderate price. One thing we like is that the Wingun 701s 4 Revolver is made with genuine and high-quality materials, so it weighs almost as much as a real revolver and yes, it’s very durable and long-lasting too. The Wingun 701s 4 Revolver uses CO2 cartridges, and actually gets a decent amount of shots per cartridge too.

We like how the sights are adjustable, as this is pretty important. The muzzle velocity generated here is somewhere around 400 fps, which once againisn’t great, but is still decent for something like this. Reloading it however is a pain in the neck as you have to load up 6 shells just like with a revolver, instead of loading a magazine.


  • Good price 
  • Durable build
  • Decent accuracy and firepower for a revolver
  • CO2 cartridge lasts for a decent amount of time


  • Reloading is a pain
  • Not much stopping power

2. Soft Air Colt 1911 CO2 Airsoft Pistol

Here we have a small, lightweight and quite affordable BB gun, the Soft Air Colt 1911 CO2.

Something that you need to know right off the bat here is that this thing is designed for use with plastic BBs, not metal ones, and certainly not pellets either. The BBs do fly at around 350 fps, which is alright for this kind of pistol but of course, plastic just doesn’t have much stopping power or damage potential.

There’s also the fact that although the Soft Air Colt 1911 CO2 itself is fairly accurate, plastic BBs themselves are not very accurate, so keep that in mind as well.

One thing we like about the Soft Air Colt 1911 CO2 Airsoft Pistol is that it comes with a full metal body which gives it a good weight and make it quite durable. The textured grips are a nice addition too. It’s a good choice for beginners doing close range target practice.


  • Cost effective
  • Easy to use
  • Good for practice


  • Accuracy, distance and stopping power are very limited

3. Walther P99 Blowback 6mm BB Pistol Airsoft Gun

Here we have another fairly affordable BB pistol or, in other words, a plastic airsoft gun.

Once again, this thing only fires plastic BBs, so they aren’t the most accurate orfar-flying, as is always the case with plastic BBs. That being said, this is a very cost-effective option, especially seeing as plastic BBs themselves don’t cost very much.

Something we really appreciate about the Walther P99 Blowback is that it’s made with a metal body and high-quality components, so it’s quite a long-lasting BB gun. You get a good amount of shots per CO2 cartridge, and to make things even better, it comes with a 15 BB drop-down magazine and is semi-auto, so you can fire off up to 15 shots as fast as you can pull the trigger, all without ever needing to reload.


  • Very durable and high-quality build
  • Very cost effective
  • Super user friendly
  • 15-shot mag
  • Good number of shots per CO2


  • Low fps
  • Limited accuracy
  • Not much stopping power

4. Taurus PT111 Spring Pistol

In terms of the price, the Taurus PT111 Spring Pistol is so far the least expensive option on our list today, but it’s also the least powerful. Now, all the other BB guns we have looked at today have been CO2 powered, so although they are made of plastic, they still have decent performance.

The Taurus PT111 Spring Pistol is made with a spring, which means that it has decidedly less distance and power than any other option we have looked at today.

On the other hand, this also makes it a true airsoft gun, one that is much safer than others and ideal for younger people and beginners to practice with. The good thing is that you don’t need to keep buying CO2, which can really add up after a while.

The Taurus PT111 Spring Pistol is made of plastic, so it’s fairly lightweight and easy to maneuver, although not overly durable. It’s really more of a toy than anything else.


  • Relatively safe
  • Cost effective
  • Lightweight and user friendly
  • No CO2 required


  • Limited distance
  • Poor accuracy
  • Limited stopping power

5. Umarex Elite Force 1911 Blowback 6mm BB Pistol

Here we are going back to a more expensive option, the Umarex Elite Force 1911 Blowback, which is a CO2-powered option. This particular airsoft gun shoots plastic BBs at up to 345 fps, which is pretty decent for this kind of thing. It comes with a realistic slide and blowback action, making it pretty fun to use.

Now, this is a plastic BB gun option, so be sure to keep in mind that it’s not the most accurate andcan’t shoot over very long distances. Its stopping power is very limited too. However, it makes for a good beginner option for target practice and it’s fun to mess around with.

The Umarex Elite Force 1911 Blowback has a metal construction which is great, as it looks and feels quite real.


  • Realistic feel
  • Cool blowback effect
  • Decent for a plastic BB firing airsoft gun
  • Good number of shots per CO2 cartridge


  • Limited distance and stopping power
  • Not very accurate

Final Verdict

What needs to be said here is that all of these airsoft guns are decent for the price. Of course, they are all designed to fire plastic BBs, so they aren’t designed for hunting or serious use, but they are ideal for target practice.

After comparing these products, we recommend the Taurus PT111 Spring Pistol to most people, as it doesn’t require any CO2.
