    I have heard rumors from my friends the a airsoft company is working on solar powered airsoft guns. They're saying it is part of there way too save the earth. Basically how's the guns will work is they will be full auto or single shot and the externals of the gun will be made out of solar panels. What are your ideas on this?

    This is literally the stupidest thing I have ever heard in my mediocre time on here. Price would be ridiculous, wouldn't allow for sustained use as solar panels on a small gun don't work that fast, it would break easier, and it would be impossible to do any sort of high demand build.

    Saving the earth is the stupidest thing to you? And also the rumors are saying that they're trying to work on it to make it not as expensive but make the gun higher powers

    JESUS if you want solar power get a solar charger!! What the hell would putting a solar panel on an airsoft gun do?!?! I really hope your friend is like a worker in marketing so that he doesn't have any say in making these guns.

    Too agreed.....

    Your deduction of "He thinks the idea is bad" to " he must think saving the earth is bad too" is amazing.
    Hostess cupcakes can't fly. I can't fly. That means I must be a hostess cupcake. Isn't altered deduction fun?

    What happens when it's dropped, and cracks a panel? What if it's cloudy? What about fixing a panel, what about all the gun being covered by your body or trees or something? This would call for a whole new system, a new breed of externally proprietary airsoft guns. The environment does not get a huge smack in the gut from airsoft batteries, because they last a very long time.

    Its for charging it during a game they're saying that you start off by charging it for a couple of hours before the game but during the game the solar panels keep it charged so you don't have to charge

    ??? Get multiple batteries and charge them all before the game! If you charge for several hours before a game, you ought to have plenty of time to charge on a solar charger of sorts, and a solar charger is an actual thing, unlike a solar airsoft gun.

    Hell better yet if you want to save the earth, install solar panels around the house, not just for an airsoft gun.

    Batteries charged by solar power would be a much more practical approach to making airsoft a green sport. A gun with solar panel externals? Really? That really makes sense to you? :confused:

    A Solar Paneled m4 would cost probably around $3,000.

    You'd still have batteries but what if you can't afford batteries

    If you can't afford a battery you can't afford an airsoft gun, let alone a solar powered airsoft gun, on top of all of that if you can't afford a battery I'm sorry to say airsoft isn't the sport for you.

    BBs are going to cost more than batteries.

    It's not possible the panel would be bigger than the gun. Get a solar powered charger. Me I just use electricity, and referring to saving the earth we have a few million years.

    ALSO, Just thought of this, in order to store any power from a solar panel you would need a battery of sorts! Which means you can afford a battery!

    I have to agree not to sound rude but the human race is not changing anytime soon. The earth still has millions of year ahead of it. Like researchers say:
    "The only things humans have to fear is, Humans"
