Coleman brand propane warning

I just bought my second bottle of Coleman brand propane and it seams to be flawed. well that is for our use anyways. in both cases the gas seams to either be to low of pressure. it will barely cycle my slide and emits a huge cloud of gas when fired. I took my blowback chamber apart, cleaned and lubed everything and still had the problem. I then tried a second bottle and had the same problem. works good with duster gas and a bottle of no name gas I got at superstore. not sure if anyone else has had any problems but just thought id give guys a heads up.

Thanks for the heads up- it would be interesting to know why. Anybody have any knowledge or thoughts on this? (particularly the large cloud of gas...) Inductive effect of the aromatic used to scent coleman propane, perhaps?

I've used Coleman for my KSC G18C and my KJW M700, doesn't seem to have that problem. (But I've had the propane since last fall)

Interesting, I was about to go buy another can, perhaps later on this week. I'll try to see if the new ones have similar results.

Yea- I was wondering if, in the case of companies scenting their own propane, coleman recently changed their aromatic (or perhaps sulfide) group. An inductive effect would make the gas more dense, possibly limiting flow, and causing that large cloud. I'm not too knowledgable about conventional propane though, hopefully someone reading this will have a better idea as to what's going on.

I have noticed this problem as well. With Coleman I was hard pressed to empty an entire clip of my hicapa with one charging of gas, but with another brand it works fine.

Not sure what tempurature you are firing in but if it's cool out my GBB's will not work very well. They shoot 1-5 shots then vent all the gas. Just too cold.

well for me i was shooting them at room temp. and even warmed the mag up to body temp. its the propane not the gun. fyi that crapy coleman propane looks awsome when shooting an m203 shell huge cloud of gas, looks awsome.

I have always used Colman propane in my GBB's and 203 and I have never had any problems.

I use Ozark Trail propane from Walmart. It supposedly doesn't smell as bad as the Coleman brand. The propane does still smell though.

It's just a different scent. A little less rotting death, a little more horrifying stench...

But I reccomend Ozark trail if Coleman's going south. They're decent and their adaptors seem to work (I've owned about five bottles now and they all work)
