I did the gun care and maintain even modify by myself. As of my experience I would like to add a bit more if that also count into gas gun care. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
Gas gun has more vibration and higher impact than electric when shooting. Means some pins and screws could get lose easily. By lubricant your moving parts in your weapon, also check if there is any pin pop out or lose screw. That could cause problems if not be addressed and taking care of. Apply thread lock if needed to secure it in place. Further more, check with excessive wear, crack or damage everytime you do you gun care. If there is any, it will belong to maintenance and get gun doc to do it right if you don't know how to handle it. Enjoy and have fun!

+1 its the blow back that makes things come loose and break.
So it is best to inspect the gun after every game, lube it and clean it.
Neglect will only lead you to more problems.

Havent tried it in a cold weather game yet, but testing it in my GHK currently. 410a is actually about 100psig higher than propane at any given temperature i.e at 80 degrees F 410a is 230psig, while propane is 130psig.. at 32 degrees F, 410a is around 110psig so theoretically it should work about as well as propane down to the freezing mark.
Rubber seals and gasgets are safe to mix with hydrocarbon refrigetants but you may have to tighten some things because the pressure is higher.
Goolge search PT chart r410a and r290 (propane) for a complete refrence.
If youre going to be out in colder weather youd need to goto CO2 or I had the idea of taping 'hot mits' heating pads around the mags to keep em warm. :)
