Certainly many guys that play the sport of Airsoft wonder if the quality of the Airsoft sniper rifles or electric guns even matters much when it comes to performance and reliability. Considering how much the price of electric and spring guns can vary (depending on brand) you certainly have to wonder if other players with higher end guns have the advantage over players with lower end guns. Basically a person’s skill is certainly much more important than the quality of their gun in most situations.
Before we get into more detail lets take a look at why some of the Airsoft sniper rifles and electric guns can have such different price tags based on what brand they are. Basically almost all of the cheap electric or spring guns are created in China which means that they are generally made using cheaper parts but as a result cost much less. Then there are the medium grade electric and spring guns that are built in the USA but most of their parts come from China. The most expensive of the electric and spring Airsoft guns are always created in Japan which is actually where all the Airsoft guns were first created.
Again the quality of the electric Airsoft guns does not matter very much but rather the skill of the Airsoft player in almost any situation. For example most people that use Airsoft sniper rifles rely on stealth and good aim in order to win games. Most people that use automatic electric guns rely on surprising other players and shooting them before they have a chance to even react. Surely you can see why the quality of the electric or spring gun does not matter one bit if you rely on strategy.
Certainly more expensive Airsoft guns are great plus they generally shoot faster and more accurate than cheaper guns but a person’s skill is what really counts. However the better electric guns and Airsoft sniper rifles usually shoot much faster compared to lower end guns. Most players just like to use cheap low end guns most of the time considering that strategy and skill plays the biggest role.
