your gun should be fine. you WILL see an increase in white stuff from the co2 coming out of the barrel. im guessing its not e-framed, so you wont have to worry about anything freezing over unless youre constantly pulling the trigger.

the only real way to keep the co2 from fluctuating the pressure as much is to get an anti-siphon kit for your tank.

An anti-siphon for a C02 tank is one of the best things you can do for it.

By using an anti-siphon it keeps most of the liquid C02 from coming out and passing through your gun.

Is is hard to install no, but you should let a certified airsmith do it for you. When you bring the tank to them make sure you bring the gun also, because the anti-siphon needs to be installed in the correct position and that relates to the way it is on the gun.

As for other things to worry about in the winter??? Paint. Your paint will get very brittle in the winter, if it is cold enough you can use paint maid for cold weather play. Regardless what paint you use make sure to keep it in a cooler so its temperature doesn't fluctuate to much.
