got a few excuses for this one:

1. I do play, only at the indoor cqb place in winnipeg where you are required to use their bbs

2. It gets damn cold here. (-25 to -37 average)

3. It's my first winter after getting into airsoft seriously and dont really know what the plan is.


And yeah all the airsoft games I've attended/planned to attend are at LEAST a 1 hour drive from Portage La Prairie. The center of the central plains which is the most boring place I have ever been to...

Safe for you, not so much for your AEG.

-10°C is about as low as most guns can go before the plastic components start to get brittle enough to start breaking and NiCad and NiMh batteries start loosing some juice. Gas guns are useless at 0°C (more like +5°C).

Heres the damn forecast for next week... Its not even the bitter cold of winter (january)

Today: High -13
Sunday: High -6
Monday: High -8
Tuesday: High -11
Wednesday: High -7

Take in the factor the central plains in windy (average of 20km/h) and adds an extra -8 for windchill.

And yeah portage is only an hour north from the border of the U.S

we played for about 4 hours today in the snow it was -6 today when we

were playing maybe we just didnt play long enough to get our abs frozen

or maybe it wasnt cold enough,

last year we didnt seem to have problems though either

but then again would you play in a blizzard or -30 degree weather

i just mean the nice days , btw the c02 powered pistols worked alright didnt seem affected by cold

just green gas guns

CO2 shouldn't be affected by cold. You can still play paintball with HPA and CO2 when it's cold can't you?

Anyways, it's not actually the ABS body that you should be worried about cracking it's the mechbox shell and internals that you should be worried about because of the "cold stress" being placed on the internals.

Also as an aside, V3 mechboxes should be slightly more cold tolerant (stress wise) than a V2 but it's still not ideal to be playing out in the cold.

I have a Broxa Evolution,have been playing it for the last couple of years.(admittedly not tons of games) and have had no problems at all.It shoots well and accurately,I have seen the Kracken in action and see no reason for complaint. It could very well be a case of individual luck in getting better guns,but they seem just as good as any others for a player that is on a budget or isn`t going to be playing alot.at the least it beats wally world specials.
