Airsoft SMG

Airsoft SMG (Submachine gun) is an automatic gun that uses smaller magazines, with less firepower than a machine gun, hence the prefix sub. During World War I was when the submachine guns were developed, which were used as assault weapons for raiding trenches. The first submachine gun was invented in 1918 by John Thompson, that gun is known as the Thompson M1921. Nowadays less and less SMG is being used as they are replaced by modern rifles that have a similar rate of fire, lightweight, and long-distance shooting. SMG is a very powerful gun in a CQB situation, as the high fire rate and small light frame make it deadly. In reality, SMG is still being used by SWAT teams or military special forces as it’s easier to manipulate a pistol caliber size gun and less likely to penetrate. Of course in airsoft, this doesn’t matter as that won’t happen.

As the years go by the SMG has evolved into something known as a PDW (Personal Defense Weapon). These were designed to use high caliber rifle rounds for higher penetration, and very popular in airsoft as they look very badass. Imagine running around a CQB game duel wielding an MP7 just like Snake eyes from G.I Joe, your fellow teammates will be jelly! 

Whilst most assault rifles are widely used by airsofters, SMG is still popular due to how easy it is to handle in CQB games. Not only that but airsoft SMG can be taken down just like its real steel counterpart and serve as a training weapon in preparation for real steel. The weight of these airsoft SMG is quite heavy which makes it feel more real.  Airsoft SMG can be powered by green gas, CO2 or electricity and can also be customized with accessory rails, suppressors, and red dot sights to further enhance your weapon capability.  At Redwolf Airsoft we have a huge selection of airsoft SMG that is affordable for anyone who is looking for an awesome gun to skirmish with.
