Question Batteries in a RIS/RAS system

Can a battery fit in a Rail system? I own an M4 and a custom type Nun-chuck battery. Am I going to have to use a PEQ box if I get a rail system or is it possible that my battery can fit in the rail?

Can someone shed some light before I go buying a Rail system?

Thanks

generally speaking no, but it depends what you get; on my kwa m4 s system, the rail system is made to allow a battery to be housed inside it, however, on most other rail systems you cannot.

If your looking at a specific rail system, try to research whether or not it can, you can tell by merely looking at it (in most cases) or try to be more specific here and let us know what rail system your looking at.

spec just about nailed it, some rails can sneak a lipo inside, but it's almost always a case by case basis.

It's a Classic Army RIS to be fitted onto a Matrix Tactical Systems M4.

As Phil also stated, unless its a lipo and without a lot of jamming the chances of fitting a battery into there would be extremely difficult.

This leaves you with several options, you can either buy a peq, battery bag, ascertain either a crane stock or a full length stock, and wire it to the back; or you could even go ahead and wire it to the back and put a battery bag on the 3 point retractable stock

Here is a link to a PEQ

And a battery bag

Your original question has already been answered fairly well. So from here I HIGHLY suggest you rear-wire your rifle. This makes working on the upper receiver, hopup and even the gearbox fair easier since you do not have to disconnect wires or pull them through channels. Removing the upper is as simple as pulling the front body pin out and sliding the upper off. Using a crane stock or battery bag makes battery swap out a breeze. If you are like me and running a lipo type battery, you can even carry more then one in the same crane stock. (Mine holds up to three!)

PEQ boxes are nice and all, but from my experience they merely got in the way most of the time...

Along with Spectre's comments, if you ran a full stock, you wouldn't rely on gimmicky troublesome custom battery packs. You could just toss a large battery in there and go all night like a lumberjack...

To add to this, when I used a large battery (PM me if you want the specifics), I could go an entire day without even having the ROF start to drop. Large batteries, though they weigh a ton, can last forever if you get the right one.

I don't think weight is too much of a detriment, unless you are already carrying a lot of stuff. The extra time that you get out of a large battery makes it more than worth it.

The overall weight of the gun with a large battery isn't a problem, but when I used one in my G36k it was very rear heavy (in a G&P sniper stock) and unbalanced, which is why I switched Li-Po.

To answer your first question (LOL), take a look at free float rail systems like the Madbull Dragonfire rails or the Olympic Arms brands usually found in the ICS line.

http://www.madbullairsoft.com/Englis...roducts_id=136

Because they are basically a big tube, in most cases you can fit a normal size Nimh nunchuck battery if you want to, or a slim Lipo. I used to run one with a 9.6v Nimh nunchuck.

Also you will have to make sure that your outer barrel tapers or "slims" down in the middle to give extra room. Some outer barrels do; some don't.
