Well neither gas nor AEG work very well in the cold unless the gas gun uses the NS2 system or the AEG uses a Li-Po battery. AEG's do work better though in the cold here in VA so that is what i'd recommend. So you could pick up something small like an MP5K, i've seen a few snipers use it as their backup.

What makes an AEG not work well in the cold??
I know durability isn't as good as plastic parts can freeze up and become fragile but other than that I've never heard of functionality decreasing in the cold...

I guess i should of said Ni-Mh and Ni-Cad batteries don't work very well in the cold. Yes the guns work fine but cold temperatures kills battery life.

They're not too bad but i've never been a fan of them. Even real steel shotguns i have a hard time liking so i think i'm pretty bias lol.

they are good, but i think a GBB pistol is much more reliable for those tight situations when your primary goes down (out of bb's or technical problem)

the shotguns while a cool concept are really just a cool trinket. The tri-shots are decent but i hear they break sooo much.
Shotguns are mainly a one shot deal (they aren''t semi-auto, at least not the ones @ $20-100)

I would definitely say a GBB Pistol is your best bet. Smaller package than a shotgun, and more "firepower" (you are able to fire continuously with each trigger pull instead of having to rack the slide everytime)

I aggree whole-heartedly with nn2h. although, if it's going to be as cold as you say, you might have some difficulties with a GBB. I would say then, to get a small AEG, but they are really too cumbersom for a sniper to be lugging around along with a big ole rifle.

super quote,
but that is exactly my point. A GBB pistol is much more compact etc, So therefore it would be more ideal

Quote :
The NS2 internal gas delivery system is a KWA patented design that utilizes an advanced lightweight composite gas piston with a two-stage internal expansion chamber that delivers the gas more efficiently than that of its predecessors. The NS2 design also increases the weapon cycle rate and provides for a crisp, realistic blow back action.

It basically just increases the efficiency and i've heard because of that it runs a lot better then other GBB's in cold weather because it's more efficient.

KMP9 ftw if you have the money for the gun and a mag or two.

KP45 if you want to be a bit less awesome.

Mac 11 if you want to be boring
