Update - I Love Airsoft.

I decided that I like writing the Pyramyd Airsoft Blog more than I like auditing cash & investments, fixed assets, accounts payable, accrued payroll or testing internal controls for various California municipalities as well as private-sector entities. Therefore, here is a little taste of things to come here on the blog (please excuse my "idiot face").


Airsoft. 

More Damage From Using a CO2 Magazine with the 
WE Hi-Capa 5.1R Airsoft Gas Blowback Pistol

Loading nozzle #2 for the WE Hi-Capa 5.1R did not fair too well.  Can you spot the damage?

I tried chronographing the airsoft gas blowback pistol with a new nozzle installed because I broke the first one while firing the airsoft gun using CO2.  Here are the gruesome results from the first test in case you missed it...WE Hi-Capa 5.1 CO2 Gas Magazine Test
During the most recent test firing, the nozzle broke within five shots of switching from green gas to CO2 and then proceeded to cause the slide to get jammed quite well, making it rather difficult to release.

I think I'm pretty much ready to go on record that while it is a great option for an Airsoft gas blowback pistol, the WE Hi-Capa 5.1R is NOT CO2-compatible as the manufacturer would love to claim. The stock loading muzzle is made of plastic and simply cannot withstand the stress from the increased pressure created by using CO2. I have seen a metal loading muzzle floating around the web, so I may try to look into that, but for the time being, guess who's gonna be sticking to green gas in his Airsoft sidearms? Hint: he's tall, bald and writes the Pyramyd Airsoft Blog.

Speaking of hints and/or teasers, check the photo I've got posted after the jump for a hint of a one-of-a-kind new Airsoft AEG for 2011 that I know many of you have been wondering about.  PLUS, I've got a teaser trailer for the new Airsoft Squared social networking community.
