Edit: top gas is apparently green gas. My mistake I confused top gas with duster gas.

Hi mp5k, welcome to the forums. KWA suggests to use green gas in all of their gas blowback products as it yields best performance and lubricates the gun at the same time. Top gas is a drier gas with less pressure. Using top gas in a KWA gun will: a) void warranty and dry up your gun/seals, B) give you less fps since top gas has less pressure, and c) give you more jams and less frequent successful times of blowback action since top gas does not have as much pressure as green gas, as it won't have enough power/pressure to fully re-cycle the gun. Now some users report some success with using top gas, but they always experience a jam, or a failure for the blowback action to fully perform 'its duty' so to speak. If you can ONLY use top gas, I'd recommend using green gas for the 45 days of your ownership so you've got your warranty, but after you are free to try whatever you want. If you've got anymore questions, feel free to ask!! :)

Actually, I think Im going to have to call you out on that Outlaw, correct me if Im wrong but I believe you're getting Top Gas confused with Duster Gas. Top Gas is pretty much the same as green gas, but with a different label. It is considered more powerful than HFC134A, because it is more powerful than HFC134A. HFC134A is pretty much a weaker green gas used in Asian model plastic slide guns, so that could/would cause you to have the cycling problems that Outlaw is stating. Also, it looks like it does have the added silicon that normal Green Gas labeled cans have.
So that can of Top Gas should work fine. Seems to be exactly the same as green gas, just with a different label.

The can lists the content as=
QTY: 1100ml

CHz FCF CH
  3   3
Silicone oil content: 1.8%

Is this just green gas, or is it something lower/ higher pressure????

Thanks for clearing that up GCW. My mistake!! What I was talking about applies to duster gas.
