Silly question I know, but what is the difference between the standard C02 Pistols, and the ones with Blowback? Which one is better?

Also, as i've never used or heard a C02 pistol before (I've fired a rifle etc just not pistols) does it sound like a real gun, or is it a softer 'bang', like BB's.

Does the silencer make any difference on them as well.

Cheers

it seems to me that alot of c02 guns are often advertised as blowback models. when they are are not. blowback is when the gun is specially designed to use a small amount of the c02 gas to move the guns slide (the bit you would slide back to cock a gun)
so you get a more realistic action. as for loudness they tend to vary in each model, none of them sound like real gun's, but give a pretty satisfying impression all the same

Thanks for the info there, clears up most of my queries Smile

The only other thing I would like to know is if the silencers make any real difference?
