The cold doesn’t just affect the gas used in your airsoft guns and pistols but affects the actual airsoft guns themselves. Metal shrinks in the cold, tightening up tolerances and causing more friction. Liquids become more viscous, meaning lubricants aren’t as effective and provide more resistance. Plastics become brittle and fragile – overall, your airsoft gun, if not prepared properly can be a bit of a time-bomb waiting to fail and disappoint when you need it. Be sure to upgrade your weapon with high-quality, weather-resistant parts to resist the cold and lubricate with a light viscosity oil in preparation. Abbey has a large number of quality products to help with the cold. If you have any questions about this FAQ please contact us at Just Airsoft Guns USA.
