Best airsoft guns: 153 airsoft guns experts reveal 3 favourite guns (2018)

What are the best airsoft guns 2018?

Run a quick search on Google and you'll see a number of posts listing hundreds of different airsoft guns covering everything from spring guns, GBB, AEG to HPA guns.

I’ve been overwhelmed by all the top 5, top 10, top 15 lists that have got me nowhere closer to choosing a manageable selection of airsoft guns. While these lists are comprehensive, you often leave feeling totally swamped, not knowing where to start. Most people don't have the means to learn about, let alone review hundreds of different guns.

So, I took a different approach. Instead of creating another monster list of ‘best airsoft guns’ (this has been done plenty of times), I decided the only way to know for real was to ask the experts and see if the best airsoft guns in the market would indeed reveal themselves.

I decided to get it straight from the horse’s mouth. I asked around 200 airsoft pro-players, store managers, and prolific bloggers a simple question:

“If you could only use 3

airsoft guns

for your airsoft operation which 3 would you choose?”

I wanted to know plain and simple which

airsoft guns

I must seriously consider and what I can live without.

Here are the best airsoft guns, as voted by 153 experts:
