Gas VS Electronic

Recommended Posts

I have had a look about and I can't find any threads that gives me answers, as am guessing this is a question asked often?

 

What is the difference between Gas & Electronic? Does one fire quicker or more reliable? I have seen one or two load out videos carry gas tanks?

 

facts, thoughts and experiences all welcome..

Gas = More realistic, better trigger response (compared to a stock AEG) sounds better.

 

Electric = More reliable, no cooldown issues, cheaper running costs, cheaper upgrade options.

 

You get the idea.

 

(my opinion anyway..)

There's 2 types of "gas" rifles (cause you mentioned a tank)

 

1- green has or 144a which is commonly used in pistols, rifles & grenades

 

2 - HPA which is where the tank comes into it & is basicly a scuba tank. It feeds high pressure air into the rifle (and some pistols) which gives far more consistent FPS, but as said above they have there problems during winter etc

 

But electric are good all year round but also have there problems, broken trigger or dead battery etc

HPA has problems in winter?

 

To OP though: If you're unsure of the details then stick with electric. Anything outside of that costs a lot of money to get up to scratch - be it spring (with perhaps the exception of springer shotguns), CO2, green gas/propane/refrigerants or HPA.

In all fairness I run Cyma v3 mainly because I think playing without a lot of hassle is the funnest.


My general advise would be to get a GBB®, as they are great fun - but first make sure you have an AEG, as well as a backup AEG.

^What he said. Can't go wrong with an electric as a first time buyer.

One thing I'd suggest though, is looking into the difference between LiPO batteries and NiMH.

 

I switched from NiMH to a 7.4v LiPO a few months ago, and I'll never look back! (here's a link)

No, it's got to be gas. It's more turn on and offable.

Induction cookers rock; easy to control, very rapid heat and yet no heat on cooker top to burn yourself. Downside is a power-cut stops play unlike gas.

Even with gas your snookered if there's a power cut & the spark ignitor doesn't work as not many non smokers will have matches or a lighter in the property (which they should for this very reason)

 

I have windproof matches, a lighter & fire steel in a tin in my combat jacket

That is a good point, and being prepared. Luckily even as a non-smoker I do have plenty of matches and gas igniters at home for my log burner.
