Airsoft P90 Guns - The Ins and Outs
What are Airsoft P90's?
The actual P-90 was designed in Belgium in the 90's, and is an abbreviation for: Project 90. The Airsoft P90 version is actually a mock up of this weapon that fires rubber or plastic projectiles.
How Do They Work? What Do They Look Like?
The Airsoft P90 looks exactly as the real P90 does! It's not a common weapon seen on television, though it was used heavily in the series Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis.
These mock weapons work in three different ways. One way is by spring, which is the most common. The other way is gas, a way that many conventional weapons work, and by electricity.
The electric Airsoft guns require a battery and you need to be careful when purchasing these because some resellers will put poor quality batteries in these rifles which will either not work well, or not work at all.
