Having decided on getting a gas gun, I'm still debating the ATP vs M9.  But, now I'm wondering which green gas to get.  I've come upon two different gasses, but made by the same company.  One is nearly twice the price of the other, so I'm wondering if I'm missing something here.

Expensive Gas

Cheap Gas

They appeare to be the same, because if you look at the second picture of the cheaper one from Amazon, it also has the green label like the more expensive one.  Anyway, which one should I buy?

if i were you i would buy both and see if they both preform the same, they could be made by the same company with the same specs but in 2 completely different factories with 2 different quality control standards, but if the cheap gas preforms the same and every once in a while you get a bad can i would still go with the cheap gas, i mean it cant damage your gun.  in regards to the pistol i would get the ATP because you can get an ATP and an extra mag for the price of a M9.
Also if you decide to buy both please post your results, i use UHC power green right now and if i can get gas for half the price i will.

Not necessarily but it is not uncommon for this industry rebrand many products that are essentially made by one manufacturer.

It makes me wonder when I see trucks full of gas containers, where they come from. Whatever it is, the place that makes these gases are very specialized at doing that and seems rather too expensive for most or maybe all airsoft manufacturers to purchase a facility to make such gas.

My only suggestion in this hobby is to try every brand worth trying and stick with what works and economical for you.

Actually, I have experience with Power Green.  It once came with an integrated nozzle and was changed to the type pictured that is screwed on.  I will no buy it because I have had issues with the quality of the nozzle and poor fills.  I have seen where the nozzle cuts the fill valve o-ring also.  It's not just with KWA GBBs but other brands as well.  I use King Arms and that seems to do ok but that's all that is available out by me.

I use the King Arms branded Green Gas and I have never had a problem with it, you can find it for around $10 and sometimes even cheaper online.

Thanks for the help.  I never knew King Arms sold gas.  I've had great results with King Arms stuff in the past, from their M4s to their BBs.  I'll be sure to try their gas now :thumbsup:

I remember when green gas was $10.  Now it's $12-$15 depending on where you buy.

There is green gas for around 10-12 dollars all over the place.  It's really the UHC Power Green that's expensive.  Just go look on amazon.

Airsplat is a good place to get gas or cheap things like speed loaders

Trev buys from evike I believe... it would be smart to order from them now, considering they have a 20% coupon code ending 4/28/12: "evikenation"

WOW 20%, those are rare during the year. Too bad no LM4 Magpul's are near pre order on Evike. Id do that right up!
