When I was a kid, I spent hours playing with airsoft guns. I would run around the neighborhood, dodging imaginary bullets and taking out bad guys. It was so much fun!
Now that I’m an adult, I thought it would be fun to print my own customized airsoft gun. But when I tried to 3D print one, I quickly realized that it’s not as easy as it looks.
It turns out that 3D printing an airsoft gun is actually quite difficult. But, with a little bit of patience and practice, it is possible to create a perfectly functioning airsoft gun.
A couple of days ago, somebody uploaded a video on YouTube that shows people how to 3D print an airsoft gun. It looks really cool, and I can’t wait to try it out myself:
In this article, I’ll show you how to 3D print an airsoft gun that looks and feels just like the real thing. So, whether you’re a kid or an adult, you can enjoy the thrill of playing with airsoft guns. Let’s get started!

5. Airsoft Folding G19 (designed by Eric)
This 3D-printed airsoft gun may look like a real firearm so be responsible when handling this item after it has been printed and detailed according to the files of this project. The ability to fold and unfold the gun’s handle should be treated with care as the pellets fired from this replicated weapon can still do some damage.
While it may not fire real bullets, this is still a fully functional airgun that is capable of shooting when the trigger is pulled.

6. FAMAS Cybergun Airsoft Gun Bayonet (designed by Nono Coco – aka STATESMEN)
The gun barrel outside diameter is a twenty-two-millimeter standard, meaning the bayonet should also fit on M4 and AR guns. The rear handle mount was designed to fig the factory grenade adapter of the twenty-two-millimeter FAMAS.

There are many ways to get involved in the sport of airsoft. One popular way is to 3D print your own gun. This can be a great way to save money and get exactly the gun you want.
More Tips & Ideas
To start, you’ll need to find a 3D model of an airsoft gun that you like. There are many websites that offer free 3D models, or you can purchase one from a professional designer. Once you have your model, you’ll need to choose a 3D printer.
There are many different types of 3D printers on the market, but not all of them are well suited for printing guns. For this project, you’ll need a printer that can handle ABS plastic. This type of plastic is strong and durable, making it ideal for airsoft guns.
Once you have your printer and model, you’re ready to start printing. The process is similar to printing any other 3D object. However, there are a few things you’ll need to keep in mind when printing an airsoft gun.
First, you’ll need to make sure that the model is scaled correctly. The last thing you want is to end up with a gun that’s too small or too large. Second, you’ll need to pay attention to the infill settings on your printer. This controls how much plastic is used to fill in the empty space in the gun model.
Too much infill will make the gun heavier and more difficult to shoot. Too little infill will make the gun weaker and more likely to break. You’ll need to experiment to find the right balance for your printer and model.
Once you have your gun printed, you’ll need to add some finishing touches. This includes painting the gun and adding any accessories you want. You can also add a silencer or scope to make your gun even more realistic.
With a little time and effort, you can have your very own airsoft gun that’s ready to use. 3D printing is a great way to save money and get exactly the gun you want. So what are you waiting for? Get started today and see how easy it is to 3D print your own airsoft gun.
Styles of Airsoft Guns
There are three main styles of airsoft guns: electric, gas, and spring. Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages.
Electric airsoft guns are the most popular type. They’re easy to use and they’re reliable. Electric guns are powered by a battery, which is usually included with the gun.
Gas airsoft guns are more powerful than electric guns. They’re also more realistic, since they use compressed gas to shoot the BBs. Gas guns require special magazines that can be expensive.
Spring airsoft guns are the least expensive type of gun. They’re not as powerful as electric or gas guns, but they’re still a lot of fun to use. Spring guns are powered by a spring, which you need to cock before each shot.
No matter what type of airsoft gun you choose, you’re sure to have a blast playing with it. Just be sure to follow all safety rules and regulations when using your gun. And always remember to have fun!
Airsoft guns are replicated toy guns that are used in airsoft sports. This low-powered air gun is designed to shoot plastic projectiles that are spherical in shape. Also referred to as “BBs,” some of these air guns have so much detail to them that they can also resemble an authentic firearm.
A 3D-printed airsoft gun is easy enough to design and can be as simple as a basic toy for kids or as complex as a museum piece that looks like the real deal.
