Redwolf airsoft and mainstream BB guns
Redwolf airsoft guns are Hong Kong-based products that the company
began manufacturing in 1999. These plastic pellet BB guns are meant to
be used in team sporting events, as war gamers are moving from
paintball into this newer sport. Redwolf airsoft weapons are designed
to look exactly like their real-life counterparts. In places like
Japan, where regular firearms are illegal, these specialty BB guns are
commonly collected and shot.
Redwolf airsoft weapons
come in almost as many shapes and models as real firearms. They look
and often feel like the genuine thing, but are not nearly as
dangerous. In fact, unlike the metal ammunition that goes into regular
BB guns and can easily pierce skin, the ammo for the Redwolf versions
is made out of plastic and the pellets are larger (6mm) and slower.
These airguns can be modified to cause damage, but they are usually
safe (unless shot at an orifice at close range).
Redwolf airsoft - what about laws on importing BB guns?
Redwolf airsoft pistols and rifles are so realistic that they can
easily be mistaken for the real thing. Traditional and well-known gun
manufacturers even lend their names to these air-powered BB guns in
order to make money in places where real firearms are illegal. The
company does import its models to places where airguns are popular,
like the United States. However, they carefully conform to U.S. law,
which states that every airsoft gun must have a red or orange barrel
tip to distinguish it from the gun it mimics.
Redwolf airsoft is not technically in competition
with traditional BB guns because they are two completely different
types of weapons. They've found a niche that is growing annually, as
this airgun sport slowly displaces the more expensive and dangerous
paintball team war games.
