Get everything you need to start playing!

Starting out in the sport of airsoft takes a tremendous amount of research up front and sometimes you end up needing to make numerous purchases just to get what you need to operate an airsoft gun. If you are new or are buying an airsoft gun as a gift, this is especially likely to happen. Fox Airsoft equips players of all skill levels all the time so we know what it’s like and want to take the guesswork out of it for you. All of our pistol starter kits will get you the bare essentials to get you up and running: a high quality airsoft pistol, the correct high quality BB’s, CO2 to operate your pistol, and some lube to perform maintenance on your pistol and keep it working longer.

The pistol starter kits we offer will fit any budget and offer various levels of detail and realism. The non-blowback tier of pistols will be simple to use, highly efficient, and offer tremendous value to new players. A partial-blowback pistol kicks up the realism to the next level by offering recoil from their moving slides. The pistol slide even locks back on the last shot. The full gas blowback tier of pistols offer the most realism of the bunch and offer recoil and lock back on the last shot as you would expect, but can be fully disassembled to be maintained or upgraded along the way. These will be pistols you can keep for a long time whereas the non-blowback and partial blowback pistols will have a finite life cycle and will eventually wear out and need replacing way down the line. When it’s time to upgrade from that, we highly recommend moving into a full gas blowback pistol.


Q: What are the types of pistols available?
A: The typical variety of pistols available will be non-blowback, partial blowback, or full gas blowback pistols.

Q: What’s the best one to get?
A: For budget minded users or people who hate taking apart and constantly maintaining their guns, the Non Blowback or Partial Blowback is an easy pistol to use without any fuss. If they break or wear out however, it is not feasible to fix it as the cost in your time would exceed the cost of the pistol. If you want a pistol that will last longer and can be rebuilt when the time comes, the full gas blowback style of pistols is the better investment in the long term.

Q: What is a Non-Blowback pistol?
A: Non-blowback or NBB  pistols are the most affordable type of airsoft pistol that you can get that you can continuously fire without having to cock the gun after each shot. You can fire the pistol as quickly as you can pull the trigger. The term non-blowback means that the pistol does not have any recoil or moving parts, making it a simple pistol that is easy for beginners to operate. NBB’s are very efficient and can get around 100 shots per CO2 cartridge.

Q: What is a Partial Blowback pistol?
A: This is the next option up from an NBB and offers recoil and a moving slide which enhances the experience when you are shooting the pistol. The slide will even lock back on the last shot. The CO2 is used both to fire the projectile and move the slide. The CO2 will last a couple of magazines worth before needing to be replaced.

Q: What is a Full Gas Blowback pistol?
A: These are the top tier of airsoft pistols and add the most function and realism. Gas blowbacks are also referred to as GBB’s. The gun has to be manipulated and loaded the same way you would on the real thing. The slide recoils as you fire it and the slide locks back on an empty magazine. This style of pistol can also be stripped down in order to perform cleaning or maintenance and may have optional part support so you can refurbish and repair your pistol as you need to. The lower tier pistols like NBB and PBB’s are not serviceable once they are past their life cycle so if you want something that can go the distance and be rebuilt rather than replaced, a GBB is what you will want. A single 12g CO2 cartridge can last up to two magazines.

Q: Why CO2?
A: CO2 cartridges are inexpensive and can be found anywhere in a pinch. We offer them as well in the package. CO2 functions year around including in colder weather which is often a detriment to Green Gas powered pistols.

Q: When should I clean my gun?
A: For all of these gun types, the cleaning you will have to do is clearing the barrel of any dirt and debris using swabs or patches and the silicon oil provided. If you have a PBB you can lubricate where the slide will move back and forth to reduce friction. On a true GBB you will want to field strip the pistol to clean and then lubricate where the slide and frame contact as well as keeping your bucking and barrel clean. The bucking should be conditioned with some silicon oil to last longer.

About the Elite Force 1911 TAC Gas Blowback Airsoft Pistol Starter Kit

The Elite Force 1911 Tactical Starter Kit from Fox Airsoft is a comprehensive package for the airsoft enthusiast looking for a reliable and robust airsoft gun. This kit includes the Elite Force 1911 TAC gas-blowback CO2 pistol, a staple in the sidearm market for its durability and performance. With the addition of a 5-pack of high-quality 12g CO2 cartridges and a 1000-count of premium BBs, players can start using their pistol right out of the box. Maintenance is made easy with the included spray bottle of 100% silicone oil, ensuring that the pistol remains in top condition.

The pistol itself boasts a full metal construction, giving it a hefty and authentic feel akin to the real 1911. It operates on a full gas-blowback system, delivering a realistic recoil with each shot fired, which not only adds to the authenticity but also enhances the shooting experience. The CO2 is conveniently stored in the magazine, making it easy to reload both BBs and CO2. The package comes with a 14-round magazine, and for those looking for more firepower, the pistol can accept an extended 27-round magazine as well.

When it comes to technical specifications, the Elite Force 1911 Tac is designed to impress. With a muzzle velocity of 350fps using .20 gram BBs, it sits comfortably in the power range for sidearms, making it suitable for most airsoft fields and regulations. The pistol is presented in a sleek black color, emphasizing its tactical design. Internally, it is compatible with Elite Force 1911 parts, which is a boon for players who like to customize or upgrade their gear.

One of the most striking features of the Elite Force 1911 TAC is its aesthetics. The two-tone finish and the threaded orange tip (compatible with 14mm counter-clockwise mock suppressors) give it a distinctive look. The slide, with its metal construction, has pronounced serrations for better grip and quicker slide manipulation. Furthermore, the white-dot iron sights facilitate a swift and accurate target acquisition.

Safety is a priority with the Elite Force 1911 TAC. It comes with a working grip safety feature, ensuring the pistol fires only when held correctly, along with an ambidextrous safety lever that caters to both right and left-handed users. The metal lower receiver features a Picatinny rail for attaching tactical accessories like flashlights or lasers. The grip mimics the feel of a real single-stack 1911 with aggressive checkering, providing a firm and comfortable grip.

Performance-wise, the Elite Force 1911 TAC does not disappoint. With the capability to shoot around 30 to 40 shots per CO2 cartridge and a chronograph measurement of 330-350 FPS with .20 gram BBs, it is a formidable sidearm. The strong recoil simulation further adds to its appeal, particularly for MilSim players or those engaging in close-quarter battlefields where the role of a secondary firearm is pivotal.

In conclusion, the Elite Force 1911 Tactical Starter Kit from Fox Airsoft is an excellent choice for both seasoned players and those new to airsoft. It combines quality, performance, and practicality in a package that's ready to perform straight from the box, ensuring enthusiasts can dive into the action with confidence and style
