What gas should I use for tokyo marui glock 17?

This thread is over three months old. Please be sure that your post is appropriate as it will revive this otherwise old (and probably forgotten) topic.

It's got a plastic slide, but I've seen people use it with green gas.

What's your opinion?

Thanks.

green gas is fine-ish in winter (it'll still wear the slide out eventually, but nothing is forever), you'll get horrible gas efficiency from it though. I recommend abbey predator ultra gas, powerful enough to make it work even in the dead of winter and it compresses much better than propane (green is propane+lube) so you get better gas efficiency too.

Green gas at higher temperatures (and thus higher pressure) will require you to install a 150% hammer-spring - they're about £10, but are a bit of a bitch to install - otherwise the valve knocker won't hit hard enough for the mag to expel gas.

 

Stick to Abbey Ultra for now as jcheese said.

Thanks for the replies, I appreciate the help.

One more question.

What's the difference between the green and red can of abbey ultra gas?

Thanks.

I'd say use Abbey predator BRUT gas, bit beefier for winter useage with no need to upgrades.

 

You bought the right pistol though, nice to see some more TM loving.

 

 

is this not to powerful for pistols?
