    Rechargeable CR123A Usage in Airsoft Accessories?

    Yup definitely an issue with the DBAL, it happens on 3 of them I own.
  2. So I know that a lot of real steel manufacturers (Streamlight, Surefire, etc.) don't recommend using rechargeable CR123A batteries for their lights/lasers, mainly because these manufacturers state that rechargeable batteries tend to have higher peak charged voltages than their lithium disposable counterparts. Surefire has always stated that this will damage the electronic circuitry in their weaponlights, so for that reason, I've been using standard disposable CR123A's for all of my lights and lasers. However, being the cheap economical bum that I am, I noticed that all of my G&P DBAL-A2's slowly drain every single battery I leave in it, regardless of the switch position I put it in. Every time I test a DBAL for usage or for plinking, I end up leaving it for several months, and then realize they've completely drained out by the time I actually need to use it again. So, tired of paying $15 for a dozen Streamlight CR123A's every time, I want to find a rechargeable solution. Because of the worry that Surefire has always stated for their weaponlights, I'm now wondering if the same applies for airsoft lights (mainly, clone X300U's, DBAL-A2's, and a CQBR-L). Does the increased fully charged 3.7v rating that most rechargeable CR123A's damage these kinds of accessories? Can most airsoft accessories use rechargeable CR123A batteries just fine? Also, for those who do use good rechargeable CR123A's, what brand cell do you recommend? I already have a good programmable charger, so I just need some battery cells to invest in. Thank you!

    Which suppressor did you get for the M733? Been looking for one for forever and the old King Arms one is out of production.

    Thanks for all the advice everyone! I'll get the rewiring done once I build my workbench at my new place

    Question but how are yall mounting the pegboard to the wall? Are you just screwing them into your wall's studs? Curious because I have a ton of guns too but I'm worried on the weight limit to hanging all the guns.

    Volante BBU in an Aluminum Slide on Green Gas?

    Ahh, gotcha.

    Volante BBU in an Aluminum Slide on Green Gas?

    I think I finally understood what the barrel lugs are lol. On my 2011 Executive I think they're there, so I'd have to file them down prior to using the BBU?

    Many thanks to both of you! Will have to decide which method I'm going to go with haha.

    Volante BBU in an Aluminum Slide on Green Gas?

    Which lugs do you mean?
  12. As title states, I want to use Volante's BBU because more kick me likey. However, as I initially understood it from Volante's initial marketing, the BBU seemed to be exclusively used for helping achieve higher recoil in steel slides. I wanted to know if I don't plan to use CO2 or anything more powerful than green gas, would it be OK to use this BBU in an aluminum slide? Or should I stick with something more standard? I want to get two, one for a Nova Staccato P slide, the other for a Shooters Design STI Executive slide; both are extremely rare, and I don't want to risk at all blowing either of the slide to pieces Thanks!

    Several Questions regarding Inokatsu M60E3

    So you are wiring the main gearbox motor and the boxmag motor inline as one complete circuit, then wiring a pressure switch in parallel onto the motor, correct? I have no issues with soldering myself, I'm just terrible at electrical circuitry in my head lol.
  14. Recently got one of my grail guns that I've wanted since I started airsoft, and it's fantastic. While taking the gun apart and figuring out how it works, I had a few questions regarding the wiring, since support weapon electrical wiring varies model to model. 1. Aside from the motor terminals, the microswitch provided was wired to two connectors, male Deans and female Tamiya. However, my box mag was modified and modified to solely use a deans connector. Is the feed motor and trigger mech supposed to be wired inline together? Are they wired in parallel to each other? 1a. If it is meant to be wired inline, does the stock wiring come with its own resistor inline to downvolt the boxmag motor? I noticed it's rated for 6V, so if I plan to use a 7.4v lipo, wouldn't that shorten the box mag's lifespan? If it isn't meant to be wired inline, then do I use a separate battery for the box mag? 2. Is there any way to decrease the trigger pull weight? I noticed the trigger mech has essentially 2 springs giving resistance: the one behind the actual trigger, and the spring holding back the activation button on the trigger switch. The amount of force needed to pull the trigger is insane right now. 3. Any other reliability mods I can do to make the functionality of the gun perfect? Gearbox is already taken care of, I just want to make sure it feeds reliable and whatnot. Thanks!

    Oof, I'll think about it and let you know lol.
