Quick Tip: Installing a Battery in the Classic Army Nemesis Guns

We’ve had some recurring questions recently from people who have come in to check out the Classic Army Nemesis line of guns. Rest assured, the battery tube is deceptively spacious, if you know how to set everything up in advance. We’ll walk you through the process, as it does require a particular “ancient secret technique” to battery connection that you may not be aware of.

What is that ancient trick you may ask? Deans Connectors!

For those of you who are a little new to the sport, you may be a bit confused, and that’s ok! Deans connectors are the tiny red plugs you’ll find standard on classic army guns (though many include an adapter for your typical tamiya plug). The Nemesis guns require this connector to make full advantage of the space inside their rear storage tube. Converting a tamiya plug over to deans is easy enough, with a little bit of soldering knowledge, but a well trained technician (like the ones in our stores) should be more than capable of handling this for you as well!

Once your battery has been converted over it’s just a simple matter of how to connect everything together, as you’ll get the best results from setting this up in a specific manner. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with pictures!

  • As you can see from the picture above, the red deans connectors are hooked up, and the gun should be able to fire from this point. Remember your Gun Safety procedures (and it doesn’t hurt to be wearing eye protection at this point forward, just to be safe).

  • From here, slide the battery into the tube, make sure your plugs lay on the side of the battery, and be mindful of the length of wire connecting everything together. Be careful not to pinch or crimp any wires, and go slow trying to fit the tube onto the threads.

  • If all steps have been done correctly, you should have a result much like the one above with your battery safely nestled inside the storage tube, and your brand new Nemesis Airsoft Gun ready to sling plastic at your opponents, whoever they may be!

Some other things to consider:

  • Switching your other guns to deans plugs may also be a wise choice. Keeping all your guns to the same type of connector helps to keep your battery collection a bit more versatile, and additionally, Deans Plugs provide a significantly more stable connection for your electrical current than a Tamiya plug.
  • Be Mindful of your Gun Safety while installing a battery. Make sure your magazine is removed, and you are not pointing the replica at anything you don’t want to get shot. Make sure everyone in the area around you is safe from an accidental discharge as well.
  • Go Slow. Don’t force the cover on. This is usually a sign that something is not lined up right, and forcing the cover on may cause you other more serious issues. If the cover isn’t fitting, try to realign the battery and it’s wires again following our pictures above. It’s easy to get excited when you get a new blaster, but you’ll have more fun if you don’t break it before you get to shoot it!

How ASGI Marq got into Tech work

Originally written by ASGI Marq

It’s one thing to know how to install aftermarket parts. It’s another to know how they all work together. Originally, when I began playing airsoft, like most people, would go to their nearest sporting good store to purchase their airsoft gun. Little did I know that Airsoft GI was close to home. TheĀ first airsoft gun that I purchased was a JG M4A1. I have to say I was a bit surprisedĀ that the gun had a velocity of over 380 feet per second. Sure enough Airsoft Playground in El Monte had a 350 fps limit so I had to do something to drop the feet per second. Then and there I always wondered how to customize my own airsoft gun. Not just simply decreasing the muzzle velocity but by increasing rate of fire and reliability.

There were many tutorials online but where I learned and understood most is from the people I knew that already had the tech mindset. I was given tips and pointers of some basics when it came to disassembling the gun then I adapted and learned more on my own, mainly through trial and error. Some days it was very tedious, but as time went by I learned a few tips and tricks when it came to replacing other internal components. I once thought that I knew it all, however, ever since I started working at Airsoft GI, I have gained so much more knowledge from our world class tech department.

Top Tech DMR Challenge

This week on Top Tech Challenge! Aaron vs. Spencer! We take a bare bones G4 and the techs have to make it the best possible SPR (Special Purpose Rifle). Except, this time, each stage is timed, meaning that they only have 30 minutes for the gear box and 30 minutes for the body. Mix that in with some shooting challenges, and you have a tech challenge that will really push these guys to the limit. Be sure to check these guns out on our website!

Tactical Gear Heads – Bob’s G&G GBBR Build

For those looking for some sort of inspiration for your next load out, definitely look through our Tactical Gear Head videos, as Bob chooses various effective load outs that can cater to every play style from speedsoft to MILSIM (Military Simulation).

In this video, Bob built his unit around a G&G GBBR (Gas blow back rifle) M4, which is a great low cost choice when diving into the gas world. His loadout is fast, and carries most of the essentials needed to play effective on the field.

Take a look at our Tactical Gear Heads section of GITV.
