This is one of the diatribes ever in the world of airsoft enthusiasts, the question in this too 2023 it is still the same; Is a green gas or Co2 airsoft gun better? It has been talked about on forums and blogs we don’t know how many times, it has been talked about on the field or at the bar during an aperitif we don’t know how many times. We have had our say on a few occasions, mostly explaining what are the main differences between a green gas powered gun and a Co2 powered one.
The differences, as you may know, are not many but they actually have something different, first of all the charging modethen the fact that gas-powered airsoft guns are prone to that nagging Boyle effect (which if you often read us you will probably know what it is) which makes them little or not usable at very low temperatures. Also with regard to this topic we have already expressed ourselves several times, specifying that using green gas cylinders ad High performance oa extreme performancethis loss of performance can be remedied – at least in part – with very low external temperatures.
That said, even in consideration of these technological improvements that have smoothed out this annoying effect, the question of the century still remains even today; In 2023, is a green gas or Co2 airsoft gun better? Even today we can’t say which is better, we know that usually the guns a Co2 they are a little more performing but it always depends on which source of gas or Co2 is used and also on the type of gun. We know that some prefer the convenience of the green gas refill cylinder, while others prefer the smaller pressurized Co2 capsules, easy to carry with them because they are less bulky. The management costs of the types of guns are comparable, so it also depends a lot on personal tastes.
Today, however, we do not want to give an answer to the question “better a green gas or Co2 airsoft gun” but we want to give an answer that hooks to the third option hidden between the lines of the question itself; our answer is that a convertible is betteri.e. a gun that – with minor modifications – it can work BOTH with green gas AND with Co2! If you can’t choose between two things, ask for both!
What are the convertible type airsoft guns, i.e. capable of shooting both using green gas and carbon dioxide?
