8 Most Expensive Airsoft Guns in the Market

Japan invented the modern airsoft gun in the 1970s to give people a way to own the appearance of a firearm in a country where it was illegal. Today, airsoft is a sport in its own right, covering the world with these cap-type guns, particularly rising to global stardom in the mid-1990s in the U.S. and Europe, where airsoft remains most popular.

    This isn’t an ordinary airsoft gun – it’s a full-blown airsoft minigun called the ECHO1 (CAW) M134 Minigun (Long Version). Anyone who knows about these giant airsoft armaments knows about the M134 series, but this is the biggest one yet. It has a huge capacity (1,700) and FPS (400+), able to fire 6,000 rounds per second, according to CAW. CAW out of Japan built this huge gun to be powerful. They ended up creating just about the heaviest airsoft gun around, weighing in at a chunky 37 pounds.

    The gun is powered by a 12V battery, the kind that you normally see in the engines of motorcycles. An adjustable hop-up makes this gun even more versatile than similar ones, such as the M134 Creation. As it spins at 3,000 RPM, you can be sure that you can level any playing field (literally) with the ECHO1, which is good, since the gun costs $4,550.

    The rifle has burst fire, flip-up sights (front and back), and ambidextrous controls so left- and right-handed users can get an equal piece of the action. It has a folding stock to make it easier to store, but let’s face it – this is a big gun, and storage is going to be tough no matter how you fold it. Owning this monster rifle will cost you $5,000.

    The most expensive airsoft gun is the Evike Custom “Optic Thunder” M4 Airsoft AEG Rifle. This incredible gun has a total of seven scopes, as well as multiple scope mounts and a full metal receiver. It has a tactical flashlight, a grenade launcher built into the frame, and an inverted vertical grip.

    This custom gun is fitted at the front with a spork, for some reason (possibly to simulate a bayonet) at the end of its long mock silencer. Reviewers praise the Optic Thunder rifle’s sniper pistol grip, which is ergonomic, top-of-the-line design. This airsoft rifle costs $10,000 when you can find a retailer that still sells it.

    Did you know?

    Evike’s tactical spork is an interesting piece of sarcastic design. It’s a stainless-steel comedy bayonet with the Evike logo etched and polished in. It can literally be used as a spork but can also double as a shiny mirror and emergency signal in a pinch. The back of the spork is a metal can opener, making it an all-in-one snack retrieval device.

The Takeaway

Airsoft guns are often near-exact replicas of real firearms, save for the ammunition. The ones that can fetch thousands of dollars are supreme examples of craftsmanship that have taken the airsoft industry away from its reputation as a toy market towards genuine, professional-grade training weapons.
