Reliable CO2 Sidearm

What should I be looking for when it comes to a reliable CO2 airsoft sidearm these days? Last time I seriously looked into the airsoft sidearms was about 5 years ago, and everything I tried with greengas wasn't very reliable or consistent.

TM Hi-Capa 4.3's have been recommended to me recently by a friend, but I would prefer to use CO2 for the better consistency across temperature ranges. Last time I looked into this, CO2 was not recommended in TM guns, as they're mostly plastic.

What kind of upgrades could I make to a Hi-Capa 4.3 to make it "CO2-Proof"?

Unless it's cold, TM's work great on propane. Get a TM.

5 years is a long time, stuff on the market is good now.

I'd recommend a TM as stated, if you really against it and stubborn on "CO2" KJW's are great.

P09 Duty, 1911, etc.

You can use the coleman tanks and get an adapter that screws on, but be sure to add silicone oil to the adapter or inject it using the airsoft innovation plunger

green gas is propane, with silicone oil added. The coleman propane tanks and an adapter are just a cheaper option. Canadian Tire has them on sale frequently.

3) Adding silicone is debatable, as long as your gun is lubed, and mags are well maintained, I'd avoid the silicon adding. - Swells up your hop rubber.

I've had great success with my KJW M1911A. Once I got the problem of the freezing and cracking nozzle sorted out, this pistol has really become a solid and reliable unit. You can get aftermarket nozzles that are less prone to cracking from the cold, and then it's good to go. Before that I was replacing a stock nozzle every few months (I shoot it quite a bit). When storing it for a bit, or after heavy field use, I'll store it with an empty CO2 cartridge in there (not tight or torqued down) with a drop of silicone oil on top of it to keep the o-ring moist. You have to lube the gun every once in a while as the CO2 will dry out the seals.

ive heard great things about kjw co2's. the elite force tac and rwa night hawk seem to be new 1911 hype (as far as i know). again this is just based on my research and some experience with the elite force tac.

EF and RWA are KWC rebrands, afaik. Would advise against investing in those.
