    Sup guys im new here on the forum and i just had a quick question. My Cybergun gbb p226 has not been shooting as well since it has gotten cold out. It shoots a few rounds then all the gas comes out the barrel at once. I am assuming this is just the mag freezing up? Thanks for taking the time to answer!

    No, its actually quite common that gas guns overall don't work in the cold. Notice when you fill the mag it gets cold? Thats the effect of gas on your mag. I could go on and on with this answer, but in the sticky there is a better explanation then the one I would give you.
    Basically, GBBs don't work in the cold. Relax. It's normal.

    The only reason for the gas to be expelled all at once is if the expansion of the gas isn't powerful enough to propel the slide back to reset the hammer and the valve-knocker/striker/firing-pin/etc. If you see the slide cycle partially and then vents the gas, that's normal because of the reasons above.

    However if you see the slide cycle fully and it still vents the gas, there's a bigger issue at hand.
