Hey everyone!

I get a lot of questions about what airsoft guns are my favourites and even though naming my favourite airsoft guns EVER would be a really hard choice to make, I’ve reflected on the ones I have used THIS year and picked my favourite 5. For this list I’ve chosen one of each platform that isn’t an AR15 – from shotguns to SMGs to support weapons, check out the airsoft guns I’ve used and rated this year:

My AK of choice this year has to be the G&G RK74-T, you can check out my full review here. This AEG is the longest variant in the tactical AK series by airsoft manufacturer G&G. What swayed me on this AK over the scores and scores of other AKs out there are the features that such as the keymod rail system and the foldable stock. For me, it's a fun RIF to use and mixes the best of the iconic AK with the tactical goodness of an M4! Photo credit to Snook Snaps

As for shotguns, this year I’ve really enjoyed using the Tokyo Marui Breacher. Although I haven’t done a review on the TM Breacher, every time I’ve used one I’ve had a blast. I love how the breacher sounds when it racks and discharges. It’s a really short, compact weapon that is perfect for CQB, and the 3 round or 6 round burst feature is something that can be switched up to surprise your enemy.

For my support weapon, it has to be the Classic Army HPA Microgun. This is probably THE most fun airsoft gun I’ve had the chance to use this year. It is 32 rounds per second of pure fun, and when HPA tapped is a consistent support weapon that can be used for extended periods of time. It is pretty brutal and something you’d definitely want in your arsenal for suppression, defence and also breaking through defences.  

For a Sniper rifle, I think it has to go to the Ares Amoeba Striker. This sniper rifle is really affordable and performs great out of the box. What sways me on this is how easy the stock bolt is to pull back as that is usually an area of trouble for me. It also looks great and comes in a variety of colours to match any loadout. Upgraded, it can definitely give even the TM VSR a run for its money! Photo credit to Ioan Roberts.

My favourite SMG of the year has to be the Krytac Kriss Vector – you can read my full review here. The Vector was the most highly anticipated AEG of 2017 and for me, it didn’t disappoint! I love the look of the Vector – it’s so different to any other weapon on the market and its performance out of the box is pretty hard to match. It is accurate, has great range and consistent groupings which for me what makes it such a great choice if you’re looking for an all-rounder weapon that is compact. It is worth noting that the Vector, only just beat the ASG Scorpion EVO 3 A1 on this list. Photo credit to The Airsoft Project
