A great piece of work. The combination of G&P's award winning 8mm Gearbox with the Full Metal Magpul Externals? Beautiful. The MOE Stock, Grip, and Hand guard are all made with precision, thanks Magpul.
I've seen that people have been wondering which battery? I use a 7.4v Lipo. You do NOT need a 11.1v. Even with a 7.4v it shoots extremely fast. I even use a 8.4v NiMH (Stick Type) as a back-up and it is perfect. Also to answer any other questions like, "Which Battery?" or "How is it housed?"
Its housed in the rear buffer tube, the new version does not wire to the front.
ONLY STICK TYPE WILL WORK! G&P makes certain batteries for it, but if your like me and you don't trust lipo's? Get a 8.4v, 9.6v, or even a 10.8v NiMH Stick type. (Make sure the wires are long enough for a 10.8v.) Its more reliable.
"Wont it be too long?" Yes it will stick out of the buffer tube, but like me you probably don't keep the stock not adjusted. The stock will cover the battery, its a much better approach compared to an external batter pouch. Plus, having the battery non-exposed; it helps your gun keep its sexy look.(;
Mag wobble is an issue, so put a tight line of electricians tape around your mags. It works perfect and gives them some character.
What else? Hmm..
Be careful with Rail Systems. G&P's have a different thread pitch so not all barrel nuts will fit. The threads are slightly larger. I have read that if you just sand some of the paint off, it might work with most. DO RESEARCH BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING. Its very important you don't mess anything up. Other than that, its a great gun. Internals? Leave them alone, they are great (if your not techy)
Fun Fact : I installed a 363mm 6.03 Madbull TBB and a ProWin Hopup. Its now shooting at a constant 100 yards or 300 feet.
Barrel Length - 14.5 inch
Inner Barrel - 363 mm
Threads - Positive + or CW (Clockwise)

Overall 9/10. (Mag Wobble) EASY FIX
