BB guns and pellet guns are far more accurate and powerful than airsoft guns. What you fail to take into account when looking at "specs" is simple physics. An airsoft gun may fire a projectile at a slightly higher velocity than a bb/pellet gun, but the projectile from a bb/pellet gun has MUCH more mass than an airsoft BB.

A typical airsoft bb weight 0.20 grams. A typical .177 airgun pellet/bb weighs about 0.65 grams. That's three times as much mass. Force = mass X do the math.

Airsoft guns have less range, less accuracy, and less impact energy.

And to answer your other question - BB guns (like a Daisy Red Ryder - Don't shoot your eye out! - generally have unrifled (smoothbore) barrels, while pellet guns (especially those designed for small game hunting and sport shooting) generally have rifled barrels. Pellet guns will be more accurate, generally speaking.
