CO2 Airsoft Pistols Guide – What is the Best CO2 Airsoft Pistol?

Green Gas and CO2 are two of the most popular types of gases used for gas powered revolvers and pistols. CO2 Airsoft pistols are semi / full automatic units that can shoot BBs immediately without you needing to reload or cock the gun. These guns can generally shoot at a higher velocity and can fire stronger shots compared to handguns that run on green gas. This makes them ideal for firing at long distances or for target shooting. Green gas canisters are a lot more expensive than CO2 gas canisters, so we would recommend you purchase a CO2 airsoft pistol over a green gas powered pistol.

Make sure you have a look at our reviews about Spring Airsoft Guns and Gas Airsoft Pistols before buying your CO2 Airsoft Pistols to see which gun is right for you.
