^^^ title (according to shortyusa it has 16wg, but I think most airsoft guns come with 18wg and shorty isn't exactly trust worthy)  

thanks guys

It's 16awg.  16awg allows 75 Amps.  Not sure what 18awg allows but it's less.  Most, if not all, AEGs use 16awg.

As far as I know, all KWA guns use teflon insulated silver coated copper wire...the stiff wire.

FYI.  the AWG measurement isn't that important. What's important is how many strands of copper wires inside the insulation.  We use 50 strands in our wiring.  Some wires in NON KWA PRODUCTS maybe less.

Okay, thanks

If you have 16wg wiring, do you want to purchase a battery with the same gauge of wiring? For instance, CBP.com gives you the option to pick what wire you want I was wondering if it is bad to mix and match wires. (16wg on gun and 18wg on battery)  Someone on ASR said it would mess up the currents or something

You guys really need to make a G36K soon :D A G3 would be amazing also.  I would get the CA, but I don't have the cash or time to upgrade it to make it reliable.  (CAs can sometimes be finicky out of the box)

As long as it can handle 75 Amps, does it matter how many strands of copper are used?  I'm asking out of ignorance.

Yes it does... more strands... more heat resistance.
