Back To Basics Video Guides

We've decided to introduce a new video series, we're going back to basics and showing the newcomers to Arisofters (and those who thought they knew everything) the must-know basics. We're going to cover topics including how to connect your batteries to your Airsoft guns, the different types of Airsoft gas, explanation of power limits and more!

We've so far published two videos, the first was about battery connection types and safe use.

Our more recent video is presenting the difference between the many Airsoft gasses available on the market, and what may be the right choice for you.

We are uploading this series of videos to our YouTube, Facebook and Instagram TV channels. Be sure to subscribe to all so you don't miss out on the updates, and see if you really did know everything there was to know about Airsoft.


Hottest Airsoft M4 for new Players in 2019

You may or may not be aware, but here at Patrol Base at the bottom right of every page there is the TokyWoky chat box where customers can interact with one another. You'll regularly see our staff and customers answering questions related to products, but one of the most common things which gets asked: What gun is the best for a beginner? This changes all the time, though there are some pretty staple ones, as newer ones come out all the time. We've put together this blog post to show off what we recommend at the moment as the best beginner M4 rifles for Airsoft skirmishers. We'll talk about what are the best M4 to get your hands on at the moment, for £150 or lower which are more than good enough to get you into your first skirmish.

Common Questions

Do they come with a battery and charger?

Visitor
Do beginner guns come with a battery and charger, or do I have to buy them seperate??

PatrolBase Jonny
Hey! Some guns come with a battery and charger, and some do not. For more information please refer to the 'Package Includes' section, which is found at the bottom of the description as well as in the Product Specifications tab. We do however recommend that you replace the battery and charger immediately, as they are typically of low quality. You'll want an auto-stop charger and a high capacity battery for best performance. You can read a blog article on the subject which I wrote, and I will link it below. Hope this helps 🙂

Why are polymer gun cheaper?

Visitor
Yo, why are polymer guns cheaper, do they break easy or something?

PatrolBase Jonny
Hey! You'll usually find that Polymer guns are cheaper, but don't let that put you off. Polymer guns are just designed to be cheaper by not having to cast the parts in metal, reducing the overall cost. They still perform just as well as a metal good, and they still look the part at a distance. You'll find with some ranges that the metal and plastic guns feature exactly the same internals, they're just a cheaper alternative of the same thing. Hope this helps 🙂


Which mags do I need?

Visitor
WHAT MAGS DO I NEEED FOR MY M4?

PatrolBase Jonny
Hey! For an M4 any STANAG style magazine should fit. The industries been pretty good with M4 mags, and most mags are cross brand compatible. You can find our full range of STANAG / M4 mags in their own category which I will link below. Hope this helps 🙂

What attachments can I use?

Visitor
Hey guys, what attachments can I use on my m4?

PatrolBase Jonny
Hey! The first thing you'll want to do is identify what attachment points your rifle has. This can be found in the Specifications section on your weapon's page. Once you've identified it you can pick a section on the website then filter by that connector type. Most rifles use 20mm RIS / RAS for sights and scopes, but the handguard varies, and could be 20mm / MLOK / KeyMod. The most common type of rail is 20mm RIS / RAS, so there are plenty of attachments available 🙂 Hope this helps 🙂
