Should you hold the gas bottle straight up or upside down? How long should you fill up your mags for? Many shorter bursts or one long fill-up? This video guide from Abbey should end any speculation once and for all.
Questions about the use of green gas are what drives a lot of people nuts about playing with gas-powered airsoft guns. The folks from Abbey have a bunch of answers grounded in science waiting for you in a short video below. For those who prefer text, we’ve got you covered. Skip the video and read on!
The reason for this is simple physics: gas is store in liquid state and we want it to draw into the magazine.
You won’t be able to load a gas mag all in one shot. The gas needs to settle inside the gas chamber. Press the nozzle firmly in a straight position and hold it for about 10 seconds.
Wait a few seconds for gas to settle inside the mag, then repeat the process until your magazine is full, at which point it will start spewing a little gas around.
That’s it! We hope this helped dispel any inaccuracies acquired from various sources, online and offline.
