    It seems like all mods focus on increasing ROF. Is there a viable method of modding an AEG to reduce rate of fire?

    I know this sounds crazy but I think it would be really cool to mod one of those full auto WW2 SMGs to a more historical 400rpm.

    Simplest way? Use a lower voltage battery.

    A 7.2V will drop your RPM quite a bit on a stock spring.

    Or a computer MOSFET with RoF control.

    This is the easiest and cheapest way.

    This is what I would do in order to get a specific RPM to replicate a reel steel weapon.

    When you say 7.4v im guessing your talking about an NiMh battey and not a Lipo?

    Sounds easy enough.

    Other way around, he's talking about a Lipo not a NiMh.

    A 7.4v lipo has about the same ROF as the 9.6 nimh.

    You will have horrible trigger response with a 7.2 NiMh/NiCd. Look into computerized mosfets as you will be able to achieve your desired rps goal and maintain a great trigger response of your gun is built right.
