LiPo Battery INSIDE a Suppressor

Hey all!

Yes yes - all aboard the honey badger train.



I just finished my build the other day and due to the stock on this gun, I needed to wire it to the front. I was able to fit a NanoAAB inside the handguard, but there wasn't much room for a battery. I totally could have squeezed some 1100mah nunchucks in there or something, but it would look pretty AWFUL through the sections of the handguard.

My solution to this would be to attempt to place the lipo inside the suppressor. A user in another thread had mentioned how, for an integrated suppressor look, he used a longer barrel, opened one end of the suppressor, and screwed it on backwards by placing the outer barrel into it. This got me thinking that I could place a battery like this inside. The supressor is 40mm in diameter FYI.

Has anyone had experience with something like this before? Any tips? Does this seem feasible? Currently my battery is sitting inside an ugly PEQ, lol.

100% possible.

But go with theses instead, they are slimmer and you have more chances to be able to install them.

If you can have your barrel turned down to the same diameter as the M4 "cutout", you will have plenty of space for the 2000mAh.

You could probably do it. Maybe take a wide suppressor and cut a hole in one of the screw caps to put your wiring through. Maybe make it so you have to plug the battery in and place it inside the suppressor, before attaching it it to the gun.

I would also get rid of the NanoAAB. Get a smaller FET and install it beside the hop up unit.

Just thought about it.

You can actually do what pesto said.

Drill a hole on the cap where you screw the barrel.
Thread lock the silencer and cap in place, and remove the other end.
Place the wires in there long enough to reach the tip of the silencer.
Obviously remove any foam that is in there.

And leave the outer barrel long enough to reach the tip of the silencer.
Voilà!
You basically have the same setup as a run the mill M4A1 plastic handguard.

Hmm - I never thought of it like being an M4 handguard. Makes me realize how much space there actually may be...

These are excellent ideas

I think it's possible if you can set it up like the King Arms VSS:

No seriously, why do you have subs on the shelf?

Is there a shortage of subs?

Is this a marketing ploy? I recall years ago subway rolled out on the buses..

week 1

"I Lub"

then week 2

"I Lub My"

Then "I Lub My Sub"

So come clean man....what's with the sub.

OK OK - I'll come clean. I have an addiction to subs. Sometimes they just end up in weird places. Sorry. ...it was delicious

While you are laughing, I am troubled. This is like looking at one of those weird pictures you cant stop looking at.

You have to explain soon man, or expect this thread to go viral.



WHY ARE YOU STORING SUBS ON A SHELF?


Did you spend too much on the suppressor project and cant afford a fridge??? Is this some sort of social experiment?
