How well will the ATP work in 40 degree temperature.  I plan on taking my ATP and kjw 1911 to an event tomorrow and it runs through the night which will be at least 40.  I plan on using propane and green gas the whole time.

Thanks

mine does pretty well on propane in about 53 degrees which is the coldest ive ever played with it in.. the atp mags hold alot of gas, so be prepared to lose a ton of efficiency, but if you top them off you should be able to empty the mags.

I think there was a guy on youtube that did a shooting test of the KWA 1911DS in the winter. He emptied out an entire mag without any performance issues.

I live in mountain country where it gets to 40 degrees often in winter. My remedy has been to use a shoulder holster, underneath my camo jacket. Sometimes, I'll put the mags in my pocket to keep warm. Leaving the gun in an exposed holster makes it very likely that performance will not be good.

The arm pit method!!!  Brilliant!!!

That video was shot at Utah and indeed it is a DS1911 which sadly we don't produce anymore.

Or u can get a RA Tech co2 mag for the older g series. They work well. Need a little work to be great but over all works well.
