FAQs

Have a question that you can’t find the answer for on our website? Below are a list of the commonly asked questions we get at Skirmish Wycombe Airsoft. Everything from the times we run games, to the FPS of the airsoft guns.

However, there might be a question that isn’t answered here or one that has been missed off. If that is the case, then all you have to do is get in touch with us and we’ll answer your question and place it on here.

What is airsoft?

Airsoft is a sport that was developed by the Japanese in the late eighties to replace the popular sport of paintball, which had long been criticised for a lack of realism, high cost of the associated equipment (especially ammunition). Airsoft proposed an answer to all of these concerns: Airsoft replica weapons are legally described as ‘toys’ and have been manufactured to closely resemble their real counterparts, both in size and weight, with most of them working on both single shot and fully automatic using a simple piston driven by a battery powered electric motor. Due to the forces required to fire the size of a paintball, bruising is hence a common side effect from the impact. Airsoft BB’s are only 0.20G in weight and therefore the force required to fire them is considerably less, hence the effects of impact are negligible (an Airsoft BB will not break human skin even at close range).
