Tippmann C3 kept your hands warm kidding. But I hate markers with metal regs or grips that get really cold. I've never had anything not work well in the cold so I wouldn't worry about it.

Anything that came out form Montneel.

Ive had those shooting great with Co2 in the snow at like 20 degrees.

If you're using HPA or nitrogen as a propellant, the issue is more with how lubricants and dynamic parts interact with the cold. For example, some lubricants may gum up or thicken causing parts to stick, this is especially important on spool valves. If there are very small tolerances in parts, expansion or contraction of metal parts may effect how they perform. Also, a marker that has a lower firing pressure and softer cycling may be nicer on brittle paint.

I doubt a C3 would work very well for a couple reasons:
propane pressure is negatively affected by the cold
air densities would change, which might result in needing to tune the fuel/air mix to get proper combustion
cold battery may not provide sufficient voltage to operate spark plug.

Pump markers pretty much always work in cold weather. I'd say for cold weather, a nelson valved pump such as a Phantom running on HPA would be extremely reliable. However, Nelsons are not designed to run on liquid CO2, and are difficult to adapt because of set air chamber dimensions. A sheridan based system would be better at using liquid CO2.

I'm with Hobbes, I own 3 pro lites. They LOVE liquid co2, and thrive in the NE fall/winter months.
