    After several Green pistols and then moving to Co2, I would never go back to g.g.
    Co2 is far more reliable, especially when playing outdoors in the cold
    One canister would usually do me for the day, with several mag reloads, but if need be, I can change the canister in a minute and stay in game. The canister is small and compact so I'd keep one and the key held together with a rubber band inside a small velco pocket in my vest, just in case.

    No, not possible. They are two very different systems. When the Co2 cannister is empty you change the cannister, on GG you refil it like a lighter.

    Just looking into it there,looks like you can get a co2 adapter,which means you will probably have to swap out seals?

    Why go to all that trouble, would you not just buy a Co2 pistol?

    If you fill a GG mag with CO2 ( via adaptor) you run a real risk of blowing seals or bulging the mag itself rendering it useless.

    Regarding green gas being ok in Ireland, yes it is provided you buy quality like Tokyo marui. TM is the best out there for pistols out of the box regarding performance and reliability.

    I would second this as I have a tmhk45 that has never missed a beat on me. I got the pistol in January and have gamed with it in our lovely Irish weather and even in cold ass day it will still preform brilliantly.
    There are some pistols that are both gg and co2. I ran the asg czp09 for awhile on both gg and co2 and even on good days it wasn't nearly as good as any tm I have tried.
