Gas powered Rifle

What would be the best bang for your buck, and full metal gun.

I'm not too familiar with the gas powered ones myself, and curious to also know what kind of gas does it use, and low long it last.

AFAIK - Years ago there was an MP5K that was powerd by gas, and electricity.
That's long discontinued.

Are you looking for a rifle that is powerd by gas, or electric? Both do not exist in the same gun, it's one or the other.

1. It's "Gas BlowBack Rifle (GBBR), not "gas powered AEG"
2. Fill in your profile w/ location so we can help you find others in your area.
3. Get age verified, no one is going to hook you up with details on where to find kit until you do.
4. Check out reviews on the WETTI series of M4's, they seem to be the standard for players just getting into owning a GBBR.

You might want to inform yourself about what are exactly gaz-powered systems.

If you don't even know what gaz is most commonly used, you have lots of stuff to read.


PS : It's Propane. Check www.airsoft-innovations.com

Duster (HFC 134A) or Propane ("Green Gas) are the most commonly used gasses.

Duster for low power (usually CQB and for less wear on the gun) and Propane for higher power or "kick" (should still get like 330 on a pistol though, enough for CQB here)

Oh yeah, also you're looking at minimum $500 for a (plastic) GBBR but more like $1000+ for a full metal GBBR.

I wont go to much into detail in regards to "best bang for your buck" because GBBR rifles are money pits and require a sufficient investment and not just to the core GBBR itself. The current abundant available models in Canada at this time are the WE AWSS M4 and the Tanio Koba KJW M4, there are also gas powered bolt action rifles available as well. You can take the time to google and research some reviews for yourself to see the pro's and cons.

Gas rifles are usually powered by green gas (also known commonly as propane) which is stored in the magazines of the guns. This is the part where all attempts to save money get thrown out the window because GBBR magazines can be somewhat expensive and it is entirely useless to even think you could play all day with only 1 magazine. Gas consumption varies so expect anywhere from one and a half to three magazines per fill.

Other existing options for gas are duster and Co2. Duster being a weaker gas is generally preferred for indoor use. C02 magazines are recently become available for some lines of GBBRs but some upgrades and enhancements maybe required to the GBBR before one can use a Co2 magazine.

Please take the time to fill in your user profile as it will allow members in your area to assist you better.

I don't know how you could say that...

The WA G&Ps have a ton more options and accessories. The only advantage of WETTI is the simplicity (but that's just my opinion/experience so far)

WA/G&P are a ton of aftermarket support. I spent $550 here on a heavily used one and spent another $500 modifying it for my personal preferences and to make it CQB friendly plus fixing it up. Brand spanking new, assuming you can even find one here would probably set you back just over $1000 for a stock WA, $1400+ for a G&P WOC. Downside, they're gas hogs and don't shoot consistently, mine goes anywhere between 350fps to 420fps without an NPAS.

I'm from ajax ontario. I'm looking for a good metal gbbr. What is the used price for them. And btw I'm not buying it so I can save money at all. I currently play cqb paintball and woodsball, and it ain't cheap.

Last I played Airsoft I had a tm m4a1 ris. Nothing but problems.

Are the gbbr rely only on gas? No electricity? Can I dofull auto? Is there only 60 round mags only?

GBBR = gas only
(Gas Blow Back Rifle)


Yes you can do full auto but depending on the mag/gun/ weather you will get a cool down and the rof will slow

Depends pm the brand. Some are 30 rounds only and some are 50 rounds

Back when I used to play on this site, I didnt need age verify. The shops should let you browse at least and do age verify in person.
