the only concern I have with these 2.0 Lipo's I have since they are fatter ( there's 3 batteries.. is that a triple nun-chuck style?? LOL) is that after this mosfet gets installed..the mosfet circuitry board or whatever it's called, goes in the stock tube.. unless I extend the stock out on my SR7..I will not be able to get one of the batteries to go in the tube..so I might have to use a different battery or buy a different stock.  I am not the type to strap batteries on the side of my gun or tape stuff  on nor strap things using tie wraps..I'm hoping that the thinner 1.4 Lipo's will be ok..I have those as well

I had a burst in the buffer tube, is gets tight in there. Are you changing the motor? Why not go to a two stick lipo?
My partner has a hobby shop, I get this pack from him.  Airsoft is illegal in NYC. Im limited to airsoft parts.

With the Lonex A1 Motor it has a nice ROF & less volts.

How does the Lonex A1 motor in comparison to the stock motor in the KWA?

Sorry, i ment The Lonex A2
KWA stock motor works.  Lonex A2 & Lonex A3 work great, JMO.

Heh..I just read your entire motor post..wow.. while I have to confess..I know very little if nothing about motors..I do take your word for it..so I think I will upgrade my SR7 to the Lonex A2? motor?

on another note..I think it sucks how airsoft is illegal in NYC.. and you live there.. where exactly do you go to game then?

Its just  my opinion. You have to make the final decision.

Yea, it sucks, but its a big city. I think some time ago someone was walking around Manhattan with a real gun & orange "tip" Thats what i heard.

I have Long Island & NJ. I take my son to NJ. His friend has a house in the Hamptons he plays out there, thats why i put some time into motors & batteries, get him through the day.

He has a problem installing batteries : :iiam:

READ, there's great members  & info here! i learned a lot in no time.
Very helpful site :punk:

I mean seriously...after a write up on motors like the one you did..how can someone not look at the pictures..see the difference..and not agree? No..your one of those guys who knows what hes  talking about..that's all I need to know...I can clearly see the difference..and understand what your talking about on the winding of the wires and such..

Thanks, All but one of my guns were tested before i bought them, store policy. I save by buying online. gas, tolls tax, time. So i ask that my gun is checked before they ship it.
This would be a major PITA for retailers if AEGs didn't have motors in them. Im sure KWA needs to check the guns also.

thanks..i feel your saving me issues down the road, for example..now that I know some about the motors..when I go to replace my motor..I know which one to buy based off the reviews and your testing..this is what I don't have out here.. knowledge..my local airsoft store will sell me a load of bricks if I didn't know any better..I am looking for extreme accuracy, reliability, and durability and smoothness of operation in my SR7

Ok..now this might sound like a dumb question..but are all these motors compatable with the KWA  AEG's? Or do you have to request a specific motor for a specific brand of guns?

I think the SR7 uses long motors. Your Tech should help you if needed.

Im late for work

Good Luck!

Any long shaft motor is "compatible".  What you need to consider, apart from quality, is whether you want high speed or high toque or some combination of the two.

Is there a motor that gives you the best of both worlds..torque AND speed?

One of the Lonex motors recommended have great results. They are just a bit pricey.  I'm using an SHS high speed with a KWA M130 spring and the results are good so far.  With a KWA m120 the piston pre-engages because the motor is too fast.  And I'm using a light Azimuth piston in my set-up at the moment.
