Best Airsoft Accessories 2022
When you browse for airsoft guns in a store, you may notice that many of them don’t come with optics or other components that firearms special forces use. Not every product has accessories, which are mostly sold separately. But don’t let this dissuade you from buying a new airsoft replica.
The reason many of these guns don’t come with accessories is to allow the user to pick whatever they like. Not everyone will be a fan of already-included accessories, which may not be the best tools. Some manufacturers don’t even include batteries in their guns anymore, with Lancer Tactical’s Gen 3 rifles being a prominent example.
With this in mind, you can look around for some excellent attachments for your airsoft weapon. Some real-life firearm lasers and sights will mount on airsoft guns, but they’re often expensive and may not be readily available.
Below are 10 of the best airsoft accessories you can buy. Each is made by an airsoft company, so you can expect them to function with your weapons perfectly. Please don’t use them with firearms if you own any, as they aren’t rated for those kinds of stresses.

AIM Sports 5mW Red Micro Pistol/Rifle Laser Sight
When it comes to close-quarters combat, sights may not save your life. You don’t have time to aim, but what if you miss point-blank shots? That’s when tools like this Aim Sports 5mW Micro Laser Sight come in handy.
While you shouldn’t hip-fire, enemies may catch you unawares. This laser sight can help you by providing a reference point for you to hit targets with. It even has an innovative feature called a pressure switch.
Located under the rear end cap is an ambidextrous switch that keeps the laser on. Unfortunately, lasers are also prone to giving your position away, so you can use a pressure switch instead. If you don’t grip the switch tightly, the laser shuts off, hiding your spot until needed.
The laser has a range of 500 meters, so it works for all kinds of airsoft guns. It’s made of aluminum and only weighs three ounces, so you’ll barely feel any weight. Attaching it to both Weaver and Picatinny rails is possible.
If that’s not enough, you can further adjust the laser for windage and elevation, similar to a scope. Doing so will let you calibrate your dot and ensure all shots hit where you point.Check Price on Airsoft Station

UTG Sub-Compact LED Flashlight and Laser Combo
This UTG Sub-Compact LED Flashlight and Laser Combo will satisfy those who want both a flashlight and laser pointer in one unit. It will mount onto the Picatinny rails of any handgun large enough to house it, though you can also attach it to a rifle’s handguard. The light clocks in at 120 lumens, which is enough to light up narrow spaces.
The laser has a spherical structure inside to let you adjust for windage and elevation, making for accurate shots no matter the range.
Like the laser sight above, you can use the pressure switch attachment, which can be set up to turn on the light, laser, or both at once. There are also push buttons on the module itself if you don’t wish to use the pressure switch. The built-in selector has three modes, direct activation, pressure switch mode, and complete shut-off.
If you’re not using the add-on switch, you can cover the end with an included weatherproof plug. It keeps the internals safe from debris and moisture.
Thanks to a low-profile design that places the laser close to the bore, the laser is accurate and trustworthy. It takes one CR2 battery and runs for 45 minutes straight if you turn both the light and laser on.Check Price on Airsoft Station

AIM Sports Tactical Flashlight w/ Offset Mount, 500 Lumens, Black
With this AIM Sports Tactical Flashlight, you won’t be taken by surprise – no matter what the lighting conditions.
AIM Sports uses aircraft-grade anodized aluminum to construct this flashlight, allowing it to stay light without losing too much durability. It also comes with a U.S.-made Cree LED bulb, which can produce up to 500 lumens. Tactical flashlights have a range from 300 to 3,000 lumens.
You’ll notice that this flashlight comes with an offset Weaver-style rail, which might make it look awkward. However, this lets users mount it on the top rail without the beam hitting the iron sights, which is great for weapons with fewer tactical rails. The 45 degree offset is ideal for preserving your aiming abilities.
The flashlight comes with a pressure switch and has several light modes. There’s a constant beam, strobe, and SOS signal if required.
This tactical flashlight can be used as a standalone illumination tool even when not mounted.Check Price on Airsoft Station

Tactical One Point Bungee Sling, OD Green
Traditionally, rifle slings have two points, allowing the length of fabric to stretch from tip to stock. This design was used for centuries, but modern technology has allowed for new creations like this one-point sling.
This sling differs from traditional examples because you only ever need one mounting point. Instead of having it on your back or either shoulder, a one-point sling keeps the rifle at your side. You can therefore wear a heavy backpack and have your AEG ready for combat at a moment’s notice.
With one point attached to the rifle, you then place the loop around your body, stretching from your right hip to your left shoulder. Left-handed users will perform this in opposite directions. Your hand will be close to the AEG’s grip.
This one-point sling is made of bungee cord, allowing it to stretch as needed. It isn’t too tight either, and your rifle is free to move about in a large arc.
The main advantage of the one-point sling isn’t just keeping your rifle handy, but both your hands are left free for other reasons. For example, when your rifle runs out of ammunition, you can simply drop it and draw your sidearm. Later, you can reload both and keep on fighting.Check Price on Airsoft Station

Opsmen FAST 502R WeaponLight 800-Lumen Flashlight for Picatinny Rail, Black
Made by Opsmen, this powerful 800-lumen tactical flashlight is perfect for the operator who wants to light up areas even from far away. The beam is effective up to 200 meters with a peak intensity of 10,000 candlepower.
Opsmen uses aerospace-grade 6061-T6 aluminum alloy for the flashlight’s construction, resulting in a durable chassis that can withstand anything you throw at it. It also has a military-grade HAIII anodized finish to protect the surface further. The mineral glass is extremely clear and doesn’t scratch easily too.
This flashlight isn’t just rugged, but it has an IPX-8 rating, which makes it work even in water as deep as two meters.
The chassis has a built-in Picatinny rail bracket, allowing you to mount it to most AEG rifles. It’s best to mount it on the side and bottom rails, as this light doesn’t have an offset angle. If you mount it on the top, you may interfere with your optics and iron sights.
With this tactical flashlight, you don’t get a pressure switch, but the tail cap has a button that activates with one thumb press. After switching on the light, you can move your off-hand back to the rifle handguard or foregrip attachment.Check Price on Airsoft Station

Lancer Tactical 1-3X Adjustable Magnifier w/ Picatinny Mount, Black
Airsoft fans and firearm owners alike have wondered if they could add some magnification to their favorite red dot or reflex sights, as most of these don’t have much zoom, if at all. Fortunately, the invention of the magnified has solved this problem for operators. You can now keep your red dot sight on and still hit targets farther away.
A magnifier looks like a scope, but there’s no reticle inside to let you use the dot of your other optics. This one has an adjustable zoom level from 1-3X, allowing you to switch as the situation demands. It also has two lens covers for protection.
The glass lenses have a blue coating that prevents light refraction and glare, and you can use the magnifier even in bright environments.
If you’re about to head into a smaller CQC area, you can take advantage of the quick-detaching scope ring. This feature lets you take the magnifier away and stow it somewhere else.
Lancer Tactical uses high-quality aluminum to construct this magnifier, allowing your rifle to stay light. The material is still highly durable, as many of the company’s products are.
With this accessory, you can combine the speedy target acquisition of red dot sights with magnification, something ACOG sights may be worse at.Check Price on Airsoft Station

Z-Parts ERAZ Rotative 100 BB Airsoft Grenade, Orange
While not every airsoft venue allows the use of airsoft grenades, some do, as long as the grenades fall within regulations. This one from Z-Parts holds a maximum of 100 BBs and is colored orange. This stops the police and others from mistaking it for a live explosive, and orange is designated for nonlethal weapons.
Thanks to the innovative design, this airsoft grenade can release a spray of BBs in a complete circle around it. You need to pull the pin and throw it while accounting for the fuse delay.
Z-Parts makes these grenades with a durable and lightweight polymer that withstands hard impact. Even if they’re small enough to fit into 40mm grenade pouches, you can still rely on them for larger blast radiuses.
The internal parts are made of metal and will function after many throws. Being a 100% reusable airsoft grenade, you can pick it up later and refill it for another throw.
This grenade uses green gas and propane, meaning you should have some refills on hand if you wish to reuse them in the same match.
Airsoft grenades like this are excellent for taking out multiple enemies behind cover. They also work beautifully in CQC situations, especially when clearing a room.Check Price on Airsoft Station

Lancer Tactical Adaptive Hook And Loop Triple Dual Mag Pouch, Black
Some tactical vests don’t have pouches to store magazines, so operators must purchase them and attach them to their gear. These triple dual magazine pouches from Lancer Tactical are designed to work with M4/M16/AR-15 NATO STANAG magazines.
Lancer Tactical uses nylon to make these pouches, as this synthetic fabric can withstand the elements and sweat well. It’s also lightweight and resistant to tearing.
To attach this to a vest or plate carrier, you can use hooks and loops or the snap buckle straps. Either option is effective, and having both lets you use these pouches on many other products.
Magazines are secured in place by the bungee cord retention straps. When you need to reload, these straps readily give way and let you extract the magazines. Bungee cord is elastic and keeps them in place no matter if you sprint, dive, or roll.
Even with the top flaps, the design lets you reload without having to open them. This convenient design is similar to that used by military personnel.Check Price on Airsoft Station

Raptors Airsoft RTV 200rd BB Speed Loader for Airsoft Guns
Airsoft guns have magazine capacities ranging from several to thousands of BBs. While you can hand-load revolvers and some long arm magazines by hand, it would take too long for AEGs, which usually have a few hundred rounds in the box. Thus, the speed loader was born.
The concept originated from revolver speed-loaders, but the airsoft world adapted it for BBs. This transparent speed loader is made of lightweight polymer, so you can check if any BBs are still inside and ready to be used.
Using this speed loader is elementary, and anyone can do it after a few tries. You treat it like a syringe, aligning the exit valve with your magazines and pressing down on the handle protruding from the top. That will pump BBs into magazines, and you only have to repeat as necessary.
It’s best to use these for mid-capacity and above boxes, as you’ll get the most out of using a speed loader that way.
This speed loader is also light and compact, so you can keep more than one in your backpack or vest pouches when you run out of fresh magazines.Check Price on Airsoft Station

G&G GT1 Red Dot Sight w/ High Mount
Made by G&G, this GT1 red dot sight is perfect for long arms such as MP5s and assault rifles. It has a high mount that rises above M4 iron sights, convenient for those who prefer keeping the latter. It also saves you from lowering your head too much when aiming down the scope.
The scope is made entirely of aluminum alloy for durability and longevity. The glass has an anti-glare coating to keep you hidden.
The red dot has 11 brightness levels that you can choose from to compensate for low light.
Using the QD lever mount, you can reattach the scope to your gun without zeroing it again. This process takes less than a second, which is a convenient feature in a battle.
Located on the sight are knobs for adjusting windage and elevation. You’ll find your rifle hitting targets more after some adjustments, as these sights aren’t zeroed right out of the box.
