Question Blowback or non-blowback?

ok i want to get a gas handgun for a secondary weapon.So what i did was start looking around,and what i found was blowbacks seem to cost more.(daaaaa)
and what i was wonering is a blowback hand gun really worth the extra $.or is it just something someone should get if they have a little more $.

Non blowbacks are cheaper more reliable, blowbacks are more expensive but more realistic and cooler its all in preference

They're called priorities. Get yourself some.

Blowback pistols are much more realistic, since they emulate what a real pistol does.

A lot of non-blowbacks are CO2 powered and might be too hot if your playing indoor.
There are some guns like the TM MK23 are propane powered and non-blowback, and that's a nice gun and indoor capable.

However most people prefer blowbacks for the nice cycling action.

Blowbacks are semi auto, non blowbacks are double action (and sometimes single action) only. Can't get a nice trigger pull for rapid fire in a NBB.

More upgrades and replacement parts for blowbacks.
You can also clean the pistol easier for blowback by taking off the slide, barrel, hop-up, etc.

Yup more upgrades and replacement parts.

But you can also easily disassemble NBB's (TM MK23 for example), and they probably don't need a cleaning nearly as often because they have so few moving parts.

A KSC G19 is more reliable than any non-blowback. Usually around 200-300 also, so not that expensive either, and you're not stuck with expensive co2 powerlets.

err..... I has both of them. KSC Glock 19 and TM MK2 NBB, which is TM MK2 win in every aspect except there is no blow back and it's not full metal. If you don't mind about any of those feature then this gun is right for you. You can't be wrong with it, shot straight right out of the box without any upgrade part and one of the accurate pistol that I ever use.

I used my KSC Glock 19 with heavy upgrade and it's still can't compare to my MK23 and maintenance on MK23 is way more easy to do than any GBB pistol out there because there are not much moving parts in there.

One of the primary differences in NBB vs. GBB is that the GBB is more realistic in all ways, this also includes accuracy. There's a reason soldiers only use sidearms as backups except in very specific conditions: it's damn hard to hit anything at any range with a pistol, especially in any kind of rapid fire, because the blowback throws your aim off. My group had a pistol only game recently and I tell you, I had a hell of a time hitting anything. But as I said, they're realistic. If you want efficiency and accuracy and long life with little maintenance then get a NBB, if you want realism then get a GBB.

Personally a would recomend a GBB. GBB's are a hellofa lot of fun to shoot and as long as you're only using them as a backup/close-range weapon rather then a primary then the above mentioned points in favor of NBB's don't have a lot of impact.

Blowback are really fun... But after playing a game where there is lots of sand, i need a non- blowback one too... It's just insane to clean up after...

They get a serious meh in my books.

Weak action, just adds something else to fuck up.
