The gun will wear faster. The gun will work fine but the slide will be under more strain.

The gun will be FINE. I think running duster in a tm is just people being over cautious. I'd rather have TM plastic than metal anyday of the week. Plastic has many upsides compared to metal on gbb pistols.
Pro tip - Tokyo Marui gas blowback pistols DO NOT need metal slides to run propane. Trust me I own one.
Follow up - I don't suggest metal propane adapters. The one I had broke my mags in < 3 weeks. Plastic adapters have many more pros than metal ones. Don't believe me? HolyHandGrenade has the most experience on the forum (that I've heard of) with any adapters.

If you're worried, I think Gaurder makes some sturdier plastic slides for TM pistols.

The plastic makes the cooldown effect less apparent, but I haven't used mine extensively in cold weather. Also - don't buy a the madbull propane adapter, it broke my o ring. I'd get the AI propane adapter kit.

I use a madbull propane adaptor and it works fine on my kjw mags. Filled 50+ for each magazine.

The thing is that since it is metal, it does more damage to rubber than plastic like the AI which I have.

Metal propane adapters are one of the dumbest airsoft investment you can make. They are inferior in EVERY way, even durability, to plastic adapters.
