Airsoft Scopes: Do You Need Them or Not?

March 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 170

Airsoft scopes can potentially be an expensive purchase, especially if the gun, scope and other accessories are sitting in a closet most of the time. If you shoot or play Airsoft games less than a few times a year, these may be more expensive than they are worth. Before you run out to buy a scope of any kind, consider where and when they are used and if that situation applies to you.

Scopes for Sighting

One of the most commonly used types of scope is meant to help you with your sense of aim while you are shooting. That can mean while you are playing a tactical game or just practice shooting with an Airsoft target. Either way, you need to choose which type of scope and sight you are most comfortable using.

A crosshair style sight can make you feel more like a deadly assassin, but they can be tricky to use with any real accuracy and require a steady hand, a sense of patience and lots of practice. Once you have this style of sight and scope down to a fine art, though, they can be very beneficial in a wide range of shooting situations.

Another option here is the red dot scope that has a small red dot that appears on your target. With this dot, you move around until you think you are in the right spot and then fire. Again, this requires a little bit of practice and finesse.

Laser Style Scopes: Are They Worth the Added Expense?

Scopes with lasers look cool, that much is a given, but are they really worth the expense? If you are out on the field shooting your Airsoft game every weekend, then they might be. If you are playing at a competitive level, you are more than likely going to get more than your money's worth from them just in the added accuracy that you will get. But, before you buy one, you need to consider which style that you need. For indoor or lower light situations, you need a red light laser. For outdoor or brighter lights, you need to use the green light laser. Regardless of the color of the laser that you are using, you should know that they are not good for long distance shooting but rather are meant for short to medium ranges.

It is possible to find scopes that have various optics that allow you to change from the shorter range, variable color laser to the telescopic, longer range Airsoft scopes.
