GBBs don't work very well, if at all during the winter. And I don't think you need to add the "I'm in canada and we have cold winters", for obvious reasons.

He's also only 16.

GBBs can work worse than springers in winter.

you most certainly CAN use a GBB durring our "cold ass winters" but you might end up having to pistol whip each other because the colder it gets the weaker the shots will be until the GBB may not even cycle.

There is a special Gas Blow Back gun that you could use, its called an AEP This is where an AEP really should shine compared to GBBs.

Not to be an ass, but an AEP is NOT a GBB. You are talking about two totally different types of airsoft handgun. Please get your facts straight before you spout off.

I was going to suggest AEP's when I saw the name of this thread. but yes, AEP's are amazingly good even when its warm and sunny and your going up against GBB pistols. but in the winter gbb's suck from what I have heard (I dident have a GBB this winter so I cant speak from experience)

I'm pretty sure ancorp is being tongue-in-cheek, hence AEP being a "special" GBB...

Yeah, sarcasm doesn't go very well over the internet. I'm sure of his intentions, though.

AEP's are LAME.

Off the subject a bit but has anyone tried the winter propane with anti-freeze in it?

Yeah, you get mucho credibility by declaring that off the bat.

That won't solve the problem at all; the problem with GBB is that as temperature drops, the gas inside the magazine contracts towards a liquid state, causing the pressure it normally'd exert to drop dramatically.

Someone needs to invent an battery operated hot glove, or even better an insulated GBB mag.
bahh maybe i'm dreaming.

my pistol has some space around the Co2 caplet though and I am tempted to spray some Home Depot foam insulation to fill in the gaps.


Is the Major problem that the gas is condensing in the mag, and minor problem that the gas is condensing too quickly upon exiting the mag? Which is the major/minor problem?

To answer the original question. I used my gbb last winter with success, although the games I was at it didn't reach more than -2. I made sure to warm up my mag in my armpit after fillling, and didn't fire off 20 shots in a row. It obviously won't perform like in the middle of summer, but it was adequate for a back-up in a pinch.
