green gas is fine for that, it is (and someone correct me If I'm wrong) exactly the same stuff inside as HFC134a

But, you have committed an offence if you do not have UKARA for it.

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.

 

Resident Patrol Base Techy, any questions about PB, message me and I'll do my best to answer.

Ok TM gun are made out of plastic, including the slide this is why they recommend HFC134a gas. This isn't the same as Green Gas, Green Gas is Propane with Silicon. HFC134a is a weaker gas, less pressure, which is why it's good for TM guns as they are Plastic. If you want to run Green Gas in a TM you need to upgrade the Slide to a Metal one, and the outer barrel too. In doing this you would need to upgrade the Slide return spring and Hammer spring to 150%, this will allow the slide to come back, but at the same time it will increase gas usage.

Hope this helps.
