This is my first Guide so bare with me .
This guide is for new players who may be purchasing a Gas blow back pistol or a reminder to all who have and abuse there airsoft guns.

This guide will go over how to operate a Gas Blow Back Pistol. And how to maintain it and care for it.


These are a couple guide lines I follow when handling any kind of fire arm or Airsoft replica.

1: Always handle them with respect.
Whether it be a airsoft gun or Real Steal. They can be very dangerous in the wrong hands and if not handled properly.

2: Always assume the airsoft replica and fire arm is loaded.
Again, goes with: handle it with care.

3: Always keep you airsoft gun and RS on safety until ready to use.

4:Keep your airsoft gun and RS in a safe place at all times in some kind of case.

5: Keep your airsoft gun and RS unloaded until ready for use.

6: Do not brandish you airsoft gun or RS in a public place.

7: DO NOT bring a RS to a airsoft event EVER.

now on to the gas blow back pistol operation.

There are soft key points you need to know on a GBB.
Slide lock/release.
Magazine release.
And hammer.

Now key points for the magazine of a GBB.

Release valve.
Intake/fill valve.
Gas release nozzle.

Now when filling the magazine with gas you insert the grean gas or propane nozzle into the Intake/fill valve with the valve and bottle upside down, depending of the model of GBB you use you will hold if for 3 second intervals. I usually only go about 6 seconds total. With enough but not to much force you will push the nozzle down to where you can hear the gas go in. The you insert it into the GBB then pull the trigger and BAM the hammer hits the gas release valve and through the release nozzle into the slide and the slide kicks back to load a BB if it was loaded.

Now to load. With mine I can either insert the BBS one by one at the top or I can pull the stopper down below a small hole and insert them that way.

Now on too maintaining your GBB.

The most important thing to remember about a GBB is that it needs lubricated to keep it working. Whether or not your using green gas or propane I would suggest lubricating it every five or so mags.

You will want to lubricate any moving parts to keep them from wearing as fast.

point to lubricate:

Trigger mechanism.
All nozzles.

lubricate all slide rails or any place the slide moves on.
You may not need to lubricate as much if you are using green gas because it has lubricant in it so it lubricates as it shoots.

If you have or buy a propane adapter, it should come with lubricant but if not you can go to you locale airsoft store and buy some or you can use normal gun oil but only use none patrolium based lubricant.

Well thats it. I hope this helped and thanks for taking the time to read.

And if I missed any thing please PM me and I will try and add/fix it.

Sorry there are no pictures I couldn't get it to work right.

    Also when filling your mags. If you gas them up and the leak, try putting more in and releasing quickly. Sometimes the valves do not seat properly and instead of buying a new mag, this simple tip is all that is required.
