    Hey guys and maybe girls im new on here just started but have been playing airsoft for about 2 years anyways I recently got a Magpul ACR and I was curious if anyone would have a recommendation as to what type of battery I should run with it? I was thinking a 9.6 mini type. Is that going to cause to much stress? Thanks in advance

    So you have the A&K(280$) version or the $400 true magpul masada? which stock do you have multiadjustable folding stock(A&K0 or the one with a hole in the middle that looks somwhat like a MOE stock?

    A 7.4 for either stock will work. A 7.4 lipo is more compact, better trigger response and ROF then a 9.6volt nimh. And 7.4s are cheaper on Hobbyking.

    It's the true Magpul Masada with the hole in the stock and thanks I was looking into a lipo battery but just wondering what people thought my buddy was saying its capable of handling a 11.1 lipo but I feel that would cause tremendous stress on the pistons

    11.1s are a bit much but It could take it. 7.4 to be safe and 11.1 for optimal performance.

    do not use an 11.1. unless you have upgraded the piston (experience). The factory piston cannot handle it. If you use an 11. even with the upgraded piston do not go above a 15c discharge rate.
    I would recommend a 7.4 20c 1600+mah. Youll get the great trigger response and long game play and the 20c will give you a nice rof as well.

    Do NOT use 11.1.
    The micro switch that all Ares AEGs have is weak.
    11.1 will guarantee it to burn out.
