Umarex, after creating Glock series, gave airsoft players a new variety of weapons.

Although the previous Models of Glock, especially generation 4, are considered perfect by many airsoft players, still Umarex felt a need to replace them.

They came with both a better design and performance. Glock G34, unlike its previous models and like the real G34, has a longer slide that is completely metallic, in addition, there is also a metallic magazine just like the original Glock.

The grip is a bit modified, but the comfort level is kept the same to provide a fatigue less gameplay. Adding to this, G17 replicas are light-weight, but this gun is a bit heavy.

The Gas Blowback action, with the top-notch sturdy and beautiful design, makes this the best realistic handgun in the market.

There is a famous thing about TM products is that they don’t deceive you, and probably this is the reason Tokyo Marui is among the elite brands of Airsoft.

Although different other and well-reputed brands like KWA and KJW also created HI-CAPA pistols, they are not able to compete with this masterpiece.

Unlike many pistols on our list, this handgun has a polymer construction.

A SHORT OVERVIEW:

Enough were told about Glock series when we were talking about G34, that there is no need to discuss further. Also, we made a rough comparison between G34 and G17, so we expect that basics are clear. By the way, G34 is the first pistol in our list.

It has a classic Umarex metallic design, the slide is a bit small. On the slide, there are some notches for looking unique.

It has specially designed a comfortable grip a little smaller than G34.

Before the arrival of Glock 34, this was the most ideal gun in the market. It performs brilliantly in the field. The realism of this gun is among the finest realistic gun in the market. The Gas blowback action enhances both its performance and realism.

This gun is pretty consistent, with shooting velocity remaining almost constant. Range of the gun is also very good. You can expect it to perform its best from 120-140 feet.

Our team has faced issues regarding the accuracy of this gun and also many other players reported the same thing. The accuracy is although better than a goodly number of airsoft guns in the list, yet not as good as what we expect from Umarex. Therefore, it is only a CQB gun. However, due to high efficiency and a maintenance-free life, it still stands among the top airsoft pistols.

Another thing we should mention is that it requires time to be comfortable with this gun. If you moved from some other brands that make big handguns you will not find this, a comfortable pistol. But as you continue to play, you will appreciate the swiftness of this handgun. This is the charm of this Glock G17.

Final verdict:

This gun is a paragon of compactness and performance, except for the accuracy as mentioned. If you are a Umarex fan and don’t want to spend an extra 80$ on Glock 34, this is the best gun for you.

This gun has a sublime power. It shoots really hard. The range is also pretty satisfying. The shooting speed and rate both are good. One thing that makes this a competitive pistol in the market is the accuracy.

Once you become comfortable with this pistol, this can give accuracy better than every other handgun in the market. For indoor CQBs, there is no match for this handgun. But you have to upgrade it, for playing outdoors.

While testing the on-field performance of this gun, some of our team members find problem in the consistency of this gun.

People also raise questions on the durability of this gun while we found a highly durable. In short, it is a nice gun to play with.

A SHORT OVERVIEW:

G&G always creates good quality stuff, both in terms of Quality and price. Some of the airsoft rifles created by G&G are the ones most sold.

This classic 1911 replica by G&G is the product of the same decorum that we expect from G&G. There are many 1911 replicas in our list, and since it is the first one so we tell briefly about 1911 style pistols here.

The original M1911 pistols come in the market in 1911, designed by Colt for the United States armed forces. This pistol made by G&G is one of the best replicas of the M1911 pistol.

The original M1911 is not changed significantly despite after 100 years, but G&G brought innovation in the pistol. It has full metallic construction. The metallic slide recoil is very solid, and the gas blowback action of this gun is also really like the other handguns on the list.

Moreover, its blowback action ameliorates its realism.

The on-field performance of this gun is also fine. You can fire from a good range with good adeptness as this handgun is easy to handle. It also has a mind-blowing accuracy. The front and rear sights enhance accuracy.

G&G GPM 1911 features a Whirl cylinder that allows this pistol to perform equally better in cold and frosty weather. This feature makes this pistol superior to many. The firing rate is also quick and is perfectly synchronized with the trigger action. One issue our team faced is the consistency in the muzzle velocity. The FPS, sometimes, varies between the fires. All the other things are perfect.

A SHORT OVERVIEW:

HFC airsoft mainly focuses on creating pistols and revolvers and these products are of the finest quality. This M9 replica by the HFC is capable enough to stand in our list of Best Airsoft Pistol.

HFC M9 also had an older version that had almost a similar design, but this new version is a bit lighter than the old one. Another enhanced feature is performance. The rest of the things are the same.

Externally this M9 has a beautiful looking shape. There is a full metal slide on which the HFC trademark has been mentioned.

Performance:

Many people question the performance of this gun, especially they ask why should they go for M9 by HFC when Tokyo Marui and KWA variants are available.

The simple answer is, this pistol is better in performance. Although KWA and Tokyo Marui are High-end brands, yet HFC is able to beat them with this extraordinary machine.

This pistol fires pretty hard. With a consistent FPS, this can empty 25BB Magazine in less than 2 seconds. The range and accuracy of this pistol are also pleasing.

You can easily hit a target from more than 100 feet with flawless accuracy. The endurance of this gun is also good. This handgun is among those few pistols that although not can be used as a primary weapon but are a perfect secondary weapon.

Like the other gas blowback handguns in the list, this pistol also has the realistic blowback action, but one thing that this gun has is that it is not gas efficient.

A SHORT OVERVIEW:

Although KWA is among the top 3 airsoft brands, yet their first handgun is number eight in our Best airsoft pistol list. The reason is that while creating the list we to consider a lot of other factors as well.

This KWA pistol may be better in some aspects than other pistols mentioned above, still, we say KWA is charging more for the features their pistols have.

Despite all this, KWA pistols are still the most realistic handguns in the market. As we’ve talked about M1911, when reviewing G&G GPM 1911, KWA refined the classic 1911 design. Externally this gun has a very furnished look with a full metallic construction.

There is a railed framework on the slide that makes this gun more attractive. The trigger guard is not so big but there is a unique skeletonized & fast trigger. It’s MK II variant has an almost similar design but a more serrated grip but less efficient performance.

With a highly comfortable grip and compact design, it is used as a professional training pistol. An additional feature of this gun is that its hop-up is very easy to adjust, you don’t have to remove the slide to adjust it. Design-wise there are not any M1911 like this pistol.

FPS: 345
Magazine: 14 round
Most Realistic Blowback action
Tactical Rail
Gas efficient NS2 system
Polymeric Outer Barrel
On-Frame Safety switch

Performance:

This handgun possesses a very high FPS since it is used as a professional training pistol. In this pistol, you will get classic KWA features like perfect accuracy and a good range. For CQB this is the primary choice for many players because of high shooting speed and range.

You can hit from more than 130 feet with pinpoint accuracy. When using hop-up its performance is enhanced further. Overall, you will an amazing experience regarding the performance.

But there are a few things we should mention, the first is it is purely an advanced pistol. Even if you have basic knowledge of airsoft pistol you will struggle using this gun because of strict controls by KWA.

The second thing is you can’t use propane just like in Tokyo Marui HI-CAPA can’t use green gas, but this is not a big negative point.

The third and last thing is that although this gives very high performance in ordinary circumstances, but perform very badly in cold and frosty conditions. So, in short, if you want a high performance, realistic 1911 you can select this one.

Final verdict:

There is a mix of opinions about buying this gun. We don’t recommend you buying this if you don’t know much about airsoft pistols as it’s for professionals. But if you want some serious stuff with a budget of affording 40$ magazines, only then go for this gun.

A SHORT OVERVIEW:

Until now, all the pistols we’ve discussed all are gas blowbacks. There is a general trend that when it comes to choosing an airsoft rifle the majority of the people prefer AEGs and when it comes to choosing the airsoft pistol, most people go with gas blowback.

This is the first automatic electric pistol in our list and it is 1911 style pistol by Lancer Tactical. Almost all the electric pistols don’t have that realistic blowback action so, fewer people are attracted to them. Still, they are not a bad choice.

As far as this pistol is concerned, it is an almost exact replica of original M1911. It has a polymer construction with a metallic slide. A combination of polymer and metal is best for the durability of the pistol. It has a fatigue-free ergonomic grip.

The gearbox of this pistol is fully metallic with high-quality bearings for smooth changing of the gear. Overall, the design is not as compact as its gas blowback variants but still, it’s a pretty hard one.

Features

FPS: 210
Magazine: 30 Rounds

Fire Modes: Safe/Semi-auto/full auto

Performance:

Despite being an AEP, its performance is capable enough to stand in the list Best airsoft pistol. This pistol is very durable and performs brilliantly for a good duration of time. Its muzzle velocity is not so high. But still, it has pretty good accuracy.

You can also trust the range of this pistol that comparable to gas blowback counterparts. With its special metallic gearbox, it shoots pretty smoothly.

The trigger response is also quick. Its full auto mode takes the firing mode to the next level. Overall, we are pretty much satisfied with this pistol.

One special thing about this handgun is it can surprise your opponents with its full-auto fire mode. Another good thing is, it is very easy to handle and operate.

If you are using a high-end AEG as your primary weapon, there no better secondary weapon for you than this handgun, both in terms of price and performance. But you’ll miss the blowback action. This is the gun you can buy for fun for as well.

Final verdict:

If you want an affordable, durable and accurate electric pistol that works perfectly as a sidearm, you definitely have to see this.

A SHORT OVERVIEW:

This is the third Colt 1911 pistol in our list, not because we love them but they are capable enough to come to our list.

Although other guns of KWC are not that famous, this KWC 1911 is among the few very popular airsoft pistols.

We think till now, our readers got a clear picture of how M1911 looks like, therefore, we’ll not tell the details here, only the brief overview and a few notable features.

This pistol resembles G&G GPM 1911, all the externals are almost the same the only difference is the faux wooden grip. Also, this pistol is a bit light in weight than the two mentioned above, one by KWA and the other by G&G. Overall, this gun has an attractive and compact look.

Performance:

We’ll not about much about the performance of this pistol since we’ve already written much in describing 1911 by G&G and KWA, you can read that to get an idea about the efficiency of this gun. More or less it performs analog to the other two 1911s. Here we come to the main question.

A number of people ask when we have G&G and KWA 1911 pistols on the list, why to choose this one? There are four circumstances you can choose this, not the other two. The first one is the high shooting speed.

Although KWA handguns are famous for their high muzzle velocities, this handgun beats KWA pistol by a fair margin.

Its FPS reaches an AEG, so if you want a pretty fast shooting pistol you must look towards this handgun. The second thing is it is CO2 powered. In case you are a fan of using CO2 pistols this pistol could be your choice.

The third thing is the hop-up. A special BAXS hop-up unit is very easy to adjust and this refines it features far than the hop-ups of other pistols. The fourth and the last condition when you can choose this is when you want a budget-friendly gun.

It is more than 40$ inexpensive than G&G and 70$ less than KWA. So, in this pistol, you are getting you’re getting amazing features within the economy.

Things To Consider:

Already on our website, we’ve written a Beginner’s guide on choosing your first airsoft gun, but this guide was more oriented to buying an Airsoft rifle than buying a handgun, so we are writing a more extensive but an easy guide here.

If you are a beginner, you should know the variety you’ll get in airsoft pistols, you can skip this portion if you’re a pro player. Generally, airsoft pistols have two classifications, which ultimately lead to three types of airsoft guns.

Types of Airsoft Guns

  1. Blowback Airsoft Pistol

Blowbacks are the most realistic type of airsoft handguns, every time you fire the upper portion, also called the slide moves just like the real gun. In the end, when you run out of BBs, your weapon will be in backslide position, and this gives you a clue to reload the magazine.

  1. Non-Blowback Airsoft Pistol

Non-Blowbacks are similar to blowbacks in design, but the slide doesn’t move back. Simply BBs eject from the nozzle.

Based on these two types of Airsoft handguns, there are three further classes for pistols.

  1. Gas Powered

These guns use the gas as a source to eject BBs out. Two gases are generally used. One is green gas, and the other is CO2. Gas Powered pistols are mostly blowbacks, but non-blowbacks are also available.

  1. Electric

Electric pistols are non-blowback. Instead of using a gas, a battery is used as a source of power to guide the escape of BBs.

  1. Spring Powered

Spring Powered pistols are a traditional type of weapons, every time you want to fire, you first have to cock your pistol, and then you can fire. But since they are very much affordable, they are still very famous among players.

This was a general Classification of airsoft guns. Now, there are a few things that you can consider, buying an airsoft pistol
