    No. EBB pistols have the performance of a potato. If you want an AEP, get one that is not blow back. Even better, get a CO2 pistol.

    I second the co2 pistol:
    co2 works much better than green gas/propane in the winter.

    I'd stay away from socom gear, their gas pistols are usually OEM by WE TECH. Although this is a unique model, so it may be different with this one. IMO just stay away from the SOCOM gear pistols.

    I completely agree with you. The first gun I linked is the best of the two. The Keltech was included for a unique looking model.

    I don't see anything about Umarex in the description or title. All I know is that it will work in the winter.

    Umarex just licenses stuff. The vfc 416-417 are licensed by umarex I believe. You'll be fine with it. The kjw m1911s can use c02 magazines, if you'd like them?

    You could always just get a GBB that also accepts CO2 mags. That would work also.

    Yeah, I got sniped on that if you notice the times. I'm actually getting a KJW 1911 in a trade. Its coming with some CO2 mags, when it gets here I will let you know how it performs.

    It says Elite Force on the actual website and Umarex on the mobile version.

    Neither Elite Force nor Umarex manufacture anything, however.

    Look under specifications. I think we are both wrong. It's probably China made.

    Edit: thank you IHOP

    Even in winter CO2 guns won't be that great. The cold still affects them, While not as drastic as it does to GG don't expect it to operate like it would durning the warmer seasons.

    If it were me I would put that money into my primary gun to make sure that it is at it's peak performance.

    The best sidearm / backup gun you could get for winter would be a tri-shot shotgun. You could sling it over your back or get a scrapboard for it and attach it to your vest or PC if you run one.

    Also don't forget that AEG's go down a lot durning winter as well. Last time I played a winter game lots of peoples AEGs didn't work or didn't last long due to the battery getting cold. I suggest running a LIPO if you are not already as they fare much better during winter and just overall are a better battery. If not use hand warmers to keep battery warm.

    Alright thanks. Are you the one that said your crosman tri shot was better than your utg tri shot? I saw it on the forum I don't know who said it

    Yes / no
    In my personal experiance the crossman shot better than the UTG I had. I recieved both used so that plays a factor into it as well.

    Either one will get the job done. And being a spring gun it's great for winter as you don't have to rely on gas or batteries.
