For a classic firearm manufacturer, there is nothing better than Olympic Arms. Named for the Olympic Mountains in the Olympic National Forest in Western Washington, this weapon company offers both authentic guns and airsoft guns. The company is in no way associated with the International Olympic Committee or the United States Olympic Committee.
As with many long-time firearm manufacturers, Olympic Arms specializes in one particular style of airsoft gun. Their most popular items are nearly always rifle ASGs. These replica weapons are available online and in stores and diamonback many retailers offer discounts off the manufacturer’s suggested retail price if you purchase your new ASG online.
Olympic Arms produces and sells many types of rifles including full metal assault rifles like an AK 47 airsoft gun and a MIL5 Full Stock airsoft gun. Their actual firearms come in many more styles and the company even boasts “Whitney Colors” that appeal to female shooters.
When starting out in the world of ASGs as a recreational sport, be sure to take the proper safety precautions. Leave the orange tip of your new replica weapon in tact at all times to signal law enforcement officials that your weapon is in fact an imitation and poses no imminent threat to you or your surroundings. Read the entire user’s manual before shooting or loading your Olympic Arms ASG and never keep the gun loaded with ASG pellets within reach of young children.
Airsoft gun play is intended as a recreational activity only and these weapons are not intended for violent use. Although most ASGs are weak enough to barely break skin, the more powerful varieties can cause bruising, bleeding and other injuries. Always wear appropriate protective gear when shooting these guns and remember that while Olympic Arms ASGs are a “weapon” for fun, they are not toys and not meant for small children who do not understand the potential danger.
