pistols and current trends in air guns
CO2 pistols are the latest in BB gun trends. These air guns yield a clean
and powerful shot and are fairly easy to use. This makes them a
natural draw for airsoft war gamers and target shooters who want a
faster firing option. CO2 pistols and rifles work by releasing gas
that is pre-compressed and stored in cylinders attached to or inside
the air guns. When you pull the trigger, the gas is released
violently, pushing the projectile down the barrel.
pistols and the way gas air guns work
pistols work just like other air guns, by forcing air down a chamber
behind a projectile. However there is one key difference. The weapons
powered by compressed gas are typically semi-automatic (meaning they
donít have to be pumped before every shot) and many provide blow-back
action. Blow-back is the kick or recoil you feel when firing a regular
handgun, while the semi-automatic feature makes rapid firing possible.
Some CO2 pistols can be seriously affected by cold
temperatures. If the compressed gas cylinders are attached on the
outside or are not well insulated inside, you will definitely notice a
diminished muzzle velocity and distance when it's cold out. A good tip
is to ask before you consider any gas-powered air guns if that
particular model has a known history of such a problem.
