has a relatively long history. It was first designed and marketed
here in the United States about 30 years ago by a major air gun company.
AirSoft was conceptualized as a new approach in BB gun application.
In place of the utilitarian air gun designed for hunting, AirSoft
was created with a purely recreational application in mind. It was
also created for people who enjoy target practice or indoor plinking
with friends who are not concerned about the high power hunting application
of a BB or pellet gun but just want to have fun. This is exactly where
AirSoft fits in.
The design of the AirSoft centers on a unique propulsion system utilizing
a small amount of air to accurately shoot a lightweight BB. It produces
lower impact energy with a less damaging projectile that is accurate
enough to be FUN!

which drew hobbyist and collectors alike. By modeling AirSoft after
world famous pistols and rifles an entire line of Replicas were created.
