pistole fps

Looking for a co2 or gas pistol. I had talked to a store owner in columbus and he said most fields in ohio dont allow co2. I hopped on line and the gun I wanted said 360-380 fps. Will the the pistol shoot that or jump up most of the time?

If it is a blow back pistol it should be around 350-380. If it is a non blowback, I have seen them shoot up to 500fps.

You want a lower fps pistol so that you can use it to engage targets at close range without the risk of hurting yourself or others. At close range, high fps is not required.

Look at the green gas guns because you are far more likely to find a usuable and serviceable weapon. CO2 guns operate at higher pressures, higher wear on internal components, and higher amount of failure. This all impacts usability and servicability of your weapon. Lastly, you are far less likely to find replacement parts for your CO2 gun, requiring you to buy a new weapon to replace components or gun. This expense can easily push you into the price range of a greengas gun.

The choice is, of course, yours. But making the choice that guarantees you a working gun is always better than the less expensive or pocket friendly choices.

False about the EOs. Just need to chrono yours if it's too hot. Co2 is fine as long as the fps is below 400

My recommendation - WE 1911. Operates at 280-300fps out of the box. Runs about $85-$120 at most retailers. Magazines are about $30 each. And oyu can run the gun off propane with an adapter.

Second choice would be the HFC M190 metal semi auto version - a railed M9 that is made to take abuse. Buy a spare trigger spring set, which runs about $9 and the gun will last forever. The gun is a real trooper and can handle the most abuse out of any metal GBB I have ever owned. Again, the gun runs about $120 and mags are $30 at most retailers.

Yawger, CO2 guns tend to run hotter and take more wear and tear than a greengas gun. 400 fps is not a good velocity for a sidearm and is more likely to cause injury at close range. Also, with the added wear on your gun, you're far more likely to have needed repairs much sooner than with the greengas equivalent.

CO2 guns tended to be what I normally had to repair when I did GBB repairs - broken slides, damaged internals, and screwed up magazines were the most common repairs on guns I could service. The others typically were tossed into a parts bin and the owner offered a serviceable replacement - greengas gun similar to what they had.

sgt, I can tell you, if you do choose a CO2 gun, look for one of the KJW or better. Full metal, that take CO2 or Greengas. This will give you two choice to power the gun, with the primary being the greengas mag whenever possible.

I personally use the Elite Force co2 1911, I love everything about it and if you take care of it, it will last. I have had mine for 2 years stock and have never had an issue with it. It retailed $100. Mags are a little pricey but it's all good.

Fps wise is about 350-360

Just adding in to the above the other thing that I love about the elite force 1911 is it fires anywhere. I have taken the thing out in the mid-winter and it was almost more dependable than my aeg. The one con however is the mags are pretty expensive

Yeah, climate doesn't affect the co2 and doesn't seem to do anything to this gun. I take care of it but I don't baby this thing by any means. Here's mine if you wanted to take a gander. http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/15...6753088998.jpg
