    Since I'm going to be getting a gbb pistol I need propane and that means an adapter. Should I get a cheap $10 plastic one or a metal one?

    Plastic.. Not metal. The best propane adapter is the Airsoft Innovations one IMO.

    Plastic is safer on the fill valve. The metal ones break easier (when metal gets cold it becomes brittle). When the plastic ones break you can replace the tip (comes in the AI propane adaptor box). Also they can also break the fill valve.

    My plastic one worked fine until my buddy snapped the tip off. I just bought a metal adaptor and I will see how it works.

    The reason you want to use a plastic adapter over a metal one is that a metal propane adapter will wear down your o-ring 10x faster than the plastic one.
