I'd prefer snow over rain anyday.

But then again I live in Vancouver, I don't get a choice

Hmm still not sure if i'll try it, 180 dollars isn't easy for a 15 year old to make.

Keep in mind we don't like underagers playing airsoft. I'm willing to bet most of us had forgotten you were underaged, or had just stopped caring. Reminding us is just a recipe for flaming.

Keep your age under the radar.

Use spring guns in the winter. That or anything that isn't a V2 mechbox. I hear they are terrible in cold weather.

You know that's funny. I've heard the exact same thing before, but I don't understand the physics behind it. Of course that's assuming its even true! Can anyone fill me in on this?

i dont know enough about mechbox mechanics, but it has something to do with the V2 and the way its designed, it just cant take temperatures too cold. Apparently it doesn't have very good tolerances and can break when too much force is applies or when forces are aggravated such as with temperature. that being said, the V3 is a step up from this and cant take a beating. as for spring guns, that is obvious as they wont be affected by temperature and will perform very well. dont even try using gas...

The cast metal in the gearboxes is brittle to begin with. Once they get down below freezing they become even more brittle to the point where they break. Its the common v2 stress fracture. It is not just limited to stock boxes either , any reinforced v2 gearbox that is made of cast metal could break. The EAR Edmonton players had something like half of thier clubs aeg's go down playing in colder temperatures.

Wow all of you 18+ people really think you're so superior because you're verified and not 'underaged'. I betcha i'm just as mature as any of you when it comes to controlling myself with my airsoft gun. I think i'll be leaving this forum, shoulda known from the way i'd seen other young guys treated. You're all gonna think i'm being immature and overeacting but it seems to me that every time I make a thread somehow my age comes up and its not usually because of me.

I know several teens that have exceptional levels of understanding and maturity, but It's not the level of maturity a player has that concearns the rest of us. It's the simply the legal aspect associated with players under eighteen that does concearn us.....Key word being legal, as in LAW.

Nothing more, nothing less.
So please don't feel that you are being singled out because you are under eighteen.

What people have neglected to mention for cold weather are the other gas guns that we use on a semi-regular basis.

MrJon and Penguin can add in their information here with this as well.

When playing in colder weather (below -10c), you should look into buying a brown-gas and beige-gas gun. These gas (pistols) are the same as any other green gas gun, they just happen to have modified internals meant for the brown and beige gas. However most airsoft retailers here don't sell these gasses, so you'll need to go to Canadian Tire and Wholesale Sports to pick up the bags of beige gas.

Beige gas, unlike green gas, comes in a soft polymer container that has a fill nozzle on one end. The bags look like over-inflated sandwich bags and that are in their respective colors, beige and brown. While the gas is combustible, it takes a lot of heat to ignite, so don't worry about these bags of gas blowing up when you keep them in your trunk.

Similarly, there is also pink gas which is available at some retailers. This is a relatively new propellant and is often used in JG AEG rifles which is injected directly into the magazines. This gas not only coats each bb, but also adds a slightly pink 'vapor trail' behind each bb that you have coated. Typically these will be used throughout Ontario as the gas of choice. Pink Gas also is the standard gas used at the Urotsuki game held each year in Nunavut which brings an estimated 2,200 players

One final gas you could use with your pistol in winter will be Mauve Gas. This has very similar properties to those of helium, which allows the bbs to go even further. This is, while not the easiest to find, relatively common and can be purchased from the user "Kusai Neko" here on the forums. It works with all AEG's in lieu of battery power and is contained in re-fillable charger 'sticks' which are the same shape as batteries. You might consider picking up some of these if you are worried about playing in winter.

Best of luck!

Which ever gas you use, stay away from the mustard one.
