The Airsoft AK47 Machine Gun and Popularity
Next to the American M-16, the AK-47 remains the most famous of all the military machine guns. As such, it is no surprise that replica AK-47's (airsoft) are popular weapons of choice among airsofting gaming aficionados.
Of course, the differences between real M-16's and AK-47's are extremely pronounced where as the differences between airsoft replicas of the two are not.
However, there is a uniqueness present with the AK-47, which is why this replica airsoft gun remains one of the more popular airsoft weapons on the consumer market.
AK47 Weapon Overview
Developed for use by the Russian military close to 60 years ago, the AK-47 is considered the first assault rifle ever developed.
The compact size of the weapon combined with its fully automatic firepower made it perfect for use in Soviet/Russian military action in Afghanistan and Chechnya.
In time, the AK-47 developed a mythic reputation that has transferred into the realm of airsoft gun gaming and collecting.
The pros of this particular airsoft gun are that it is light, compact, and very easy to use. The prices of the various replica AK-47's on the market will vary. Some can cost as low as $25 while others may fetch prices upwards of several hundred.
These airsoft guns come in electric, gas, and spring loaded variants. Depending upon your needs and tastes, you will want to definitely try electric before the other two models since it is perfect for full-automatic action. (This is in no way fact, merely our opinion!)
The AK47 Airsoft Guns - Makes And Models
A gas canister will run out after a few uses which make it somewhat unreliable.
And, with spring load action, there are no fully automatic capabilities at all! Hence, electric would be a far better choice. :-)
However, there are still some really great spring airsoft AK-47's.
