My AEG seems to be having trouble shooting. When i fire the rife everything seems to be working fine then all the sudden it seems like the gearbox locks up. This all happens with a pretty fresh battery in as well.When it locks up i have to take another battery fresh off the charger to get it unstuck then in a number of shots it begins to do the same thing.These are the same batteries I've used in the gun since day one and never had this problem...

What type of batteries and they and how old are they?  My first though is it's time for new batteries.

What kind of batteries are you using and how long have you had them? Also what type of charger are you using?

New batteries...seems simple enough, but anyways they are Tenergy 1600mah. Age haha a few years i guess. The base gun is a KWA sr5. I got it the year it came out and the batteries at the same time
