Fat Bob’s is a UK based airsoft shop stocking a wide variety of airsoft equipment, including guns, pellets, glasses and propellent. As an activity, airsoft in the UK is similar to paintball but played with more realistic-looking hardware. Because they are so similar to real weapons, there are special rules for the buying and selling of airsoft guns.
Buyer’s Guide to airsoft equipment
If you’re choosing your first airsoft equipment, Fat Bob’s staff are here to help. The main considerations are which style of airsoft gun you prefer, which manufacturer and your budget.
Airsoft guns available to the UK come in a variety of styles; pistol, rifle, sniper and shotgun. They fire 6mm or 8mm pellets (or BBs), which don’t leave a mark in the same way as paintballs do, therefore players must be honest about being hit! Airsoft electric guns (AEGs) are battery powered, whereas gas-powered airsoft guns typically use ‘green gas’ or CO2. Better quality airsoft equipment will give greater accuracy and make for a more satisfying sport.
Airsoft rifles are best for competitive players and Fat Bob’s stocks top manufacturers, such as Tokyo Marui, Nuprol, G&G and Valken.
Airsoft sniper guns are best for highly-skilled marksmen, who like to consider their shot carefully and get a great sense of achievement from a well-aimed hit. Our stock includes Tokyo Marui, G&G and Nuprol.
Airsoft shotguns are usually pump-action style, with brands including M870 and Nuprol.
Airsoft pistols are spring or gas-powered and are suitable for close-quarters combat simulation.
Fat Bob’s stocks a variety of essential safety equipment and accessories for airsoft players and competitors, such as airsoft glasses, spares, gear bags and variety of BBs. Enthusiasts like to customise their airsoft guns with such items as scopes and sights, partly to improve performance and partly for aesthetic reasons.
