    So i was wondering if any of you have this sniper (kjw m700) and live in a cold area. I got it this summer and i live in Mass which gets hot summers and very cold winter's. Where i am getting at is you think its worth it to get a springer for the winter (go to a lot of events.) or should i stick with the kjw.


    I keep hearing if i stay with propane it should be fine but just wondering if anyone here has this gun in a cold area or if you can just help me out that'd be great!

    Thankyou

    If you do a hpa rig the cold wouldnt effect it? Also dunno if every rig you carry the tanks and stuff ?

    HPA, you are running off air.
    Just air, one of the most consistent "gas" that you can easily obtain. (You can also try nitrogen tho :p )

    The pressure is regulated by a regulator so it's pretty consistent.

    Just grab a back pack or some huge dump pouch for the tank itself.

    In my inexperienced opinion on gas snipers, I would suggest a spring sniper... Only because they don't need gas (so its cheaper to use) and you can use them in nearly any weather. You can use propane and it should work, but... Propane will jack up your O rings in your mag and after you use it, you need to clean it really good. So my suggestion: UTG MK96 for $150 and never worry about weather. I hope this helps.

    I'm sorry, but how will it jack up the o-rings? As long as he adds a bit of silicone oil every couple fills he'll be fine. Also, GG is just propane with scent and silicone oil. So why would he need to clean his rifle any more using propane than he would using GG?

    OP, just tap to HPA. It would be cheaper to get the rig and all that than it would be to buy and upgrade a spring rifle to the accuracy you need.

    True... Silicon oil does help, but you need to add the precise amount to make it function like green gas. You are right, but for me at least, it becomes a pain to have to keep pumpin in silicon oil. Which is why I prefer spring snipers... No gas, no hassle, just shooting. I guess it really comes down to personal preference.

    If you rig it to HPA, it's easier than a BASR. BASRs are hard to get a quick follow up shot too. Gas rifles are better in that regard. Easy to cock back for a follow up shot.

    I can't give an opinion there :p I have never used an HPA rig.

    You should. They are amazing and extremely consistent. Even in cold weather.

    Depends how you want to do it, the parts you buy, etc.
