What Is the Maximum Speed Airsoft Guns Can Fire?

< All Topics

First and foremost, before digging into speeds, what is important to remember when it comes to the speed of Airsoft Guns is that a faster feet per second (FPS) does not always equal a better gun. It is typically thought that pistols with less power offer greater accuracy, so just because a gun has a higher FPS, that does not automatically make it a better choice. As you might expect, the speed at which different airsoft guns fire varies greatly. Sniper rifles and other top-tier airsoft guns can fire around 550 FPS, whereas the minimum firing speed is approximately 180 FPS. Typical airsoft pistols come with a speed between 200 and 300 FPS. Simply stated, FPS will vary between 180 and 550. Note that there may be limits on FPS depending on where you’re using your gun. In North America, most indoor fields allow a maximum of 350 FPS and outdoor limits are typically capped around 500 FPS for safety reasons.
