To add on to that gas rifles (especially snipers) tend to have a higher fps and you tell me if thats a pro or a con because idk your fields fps limits.

To add to the cons list
Less efficient in colder weather
Velocity varies depending on temperature.

IMO gas guns are way more fun, the blowback action, realism, and functioning bolt catch are just too fun to skip out on. But because they are less efficient on cold weather, mags being a PITA price wise, and overall needing more TLC to remain functional I wouldn't recommend them to a lot of people unless you're dedicated.

I run 7 KWA LM4 mags in standard games. Capacity is not a con to me but for most people it is because they cant just unload a ton of plastic down range. I pick my shots, i dont just spray and pray.
I love the recoil, the feel, the RS parts, the RS feel. NPAS fixes all FPS issues and needing more TLC is not true. they need just to be lubed and looked at a few times a month same if not less than an AEG.

Only pro to GBBR is the realism. You he no reason to buy it other wise. End of story.

AEGs perform better.
I disagree, it depends. If you're talking about the usual GBBRs on the market then I would agree to an extend.

If you're looking to use a classic system like the P* and Daytona, then those will beat out the AEGs. But you're going to need some money for that setup.

Haha. People are surprised when I tell them that all airsoft guns use air. They think that the spring actually propels the BB. Of course, I thought that once...

Anyway, Gas guns have fewer moving parts, better trigger response, and more realism.

They also have expensive mags, low ammo capacity, and weather issues.

I bet I can make a GBBR outpreform most AEGs. Lol. IR hop :D. Anyways, I thought of a few more.

-Realistic Takedown
-Realistis Firing Mech
-Instantaneous Trigger Response
-Lubing is just like a real rifle
-More diverse amount of external accessories
-Internally upgradeable as well (Believe it or not)
-Realistic ROF

P* and Daytona are compressed air, not a GBBR. Totally different.

I agree those out outperform AEG's, but they are not GBBR
Both can operate on CO2 as well, thus classifying them as GBBR. HPA is classified as a gas too.

Edited: Correction, P* isn't a GBBR because of its lack of blowback functionality, but the Daytona has the blowback functionality.

Technically any gun that uses compressed air/gas is a gas gun. AEGs aren't gas powered because it isn't compressed.
