I was thinking about buying another AEG for christmas, I was considering buying a MP5SD5 and i was wondering If I put in a 12v Battery, will it fry my gun? I was told that 12v are only for Sniper Rifles. If it is at all possible, what do I need to do to the weapon to support a 12v battery. And is it worth the money?

I have looked on google and other sites but I haven't found any valuable information.

Thanks

I my opinion....it isnt worth the money to put that big of a battery in an MP5. I would stick with an 8.4v or a 9.6v.

12v battery pack = many, many eaten parts. Don't waste your money.

Thank you, now I wont waist my money on a MP5 :p

What was your purpose in planning a MP5 with a 12V pack? Were you just looking for a gun with an extremely high ROF?

I have a 10.8 in my RPK and the ROF is insane... But, after roughly 15,000 rounds, I had to replace some gears, the piston and the piston head (as well as some other non-ware related parts). I know I won't use anything more than an 8.4 for stock and a 9.6 for upgraded.

Just curious, why a 12v?

I was looking for some mad ROF.

Is there another AEG that has a Huge ROF?

Just get a 9.6v pack. It'll give you enough ROF.

So a 9.6v battery pack isn't safe for a stock AEG? Or is it only best for an upgraded one?

Its safe for a stock AEG. Its recommended you use an 8.4 volt for it though.

Sure, you can run it, but again, you'll just cause premature wear.

Um, you said 12v battery, why NOT get an MP5?

12v Battery isn't an MP5. :)

True, True...but I was going to buy a MP5 with the 12v Battery upgrade in mind.

dude, lighten your piston by boring holes into it. (but make sure your piston is at least polycarb) use a 9.6v 1700mah batt, change to:

systema metal bushings
systema air tight nozzle
systema spring guide with bearing
m100 or m120 spring
classic army stock gears (it's already reinforced. stock ratio, still fast)

this set up will have a sufficient ROF that will be enough to make you smile!

the only way to have faster ROF is to upgrade your AEG. if you use a batt with high voltage, that would only ruin the internals of your stock AEG so might as well upgrade it.

hope this helps.

classic army stock gears (it's already reinforced. stock ratio, still fast) I'd run TM stock gears any day over CA stock gears. CA has reinforced gears? My ass. I've stripped two sets of CA stock "reinforced" gears in under 1000 rounds, but have never had that happen with TM stock gears until well over 20,000 rounds. This was in guns with M120 springs, and yes, I know how to work on guns before you try that avenue.

i never said you didn't know how to work/open AEG's. you're the expert here, not me! this was just a suggestion.

No worries, LT. Just covering all the bases since the 'net is obviously a place where people assume a lot of things without knowing others. :)

Personally I dont care for any of the gears out there. I have a CA set in my M4 that have lasted longer than anything. I have also had a set that have stripped after 1 day of play. I have had a brand new systema set that stripped a tooth after 1 shot. Given the metal they use and their process I think your taking a chance with every set of gears that you use.

The easiest way to increase ROF is with the battery. Number 2 is to switch to torque up or super torque up motor...... forget the highspeed motors they lack torque and will lock your gun up. Number 3 on my list is a good pistonhead. This is all assuming your running a m120.

It will be interesting to see how the Prometheus gears I have installed in my RPKs hold up.

In response to Obsidian's recommendations for increasing ROF:

For an AEG with an M120 spring, will either of these motors pose as large a risk to the mechbox parts as using with a 10.8V or 12V battery?

If not, can you estimate the difference in their relative risk to the mechbox?

Thanks,
Phaedrus.

using a torque up motor will give you more battery life simply because the motor doesnt work as hard to turn the spring. You can get basically the same end result by taking either route. Generally it comes down to whether or not you have a charger that will charge a 10.8 or a 12v battery. Either way your spinning the internals at an increased rate so however long they hold up is your answer. 6 in 1 half dozen in the other :)
