I have done stretching of leather on 98k pouches (repro) and Czech belt loops to make them fit German belts, I can't imagine webbing is too much different. As 2nd Bat says, water, pressure, and patience.

First test is Saturday, the only issue is I don't have the batteries with me, my friend offered to give me a lipo to borrow, and another was willing to try to see if butterflies were also going to work (as i'm a little skeptical about the lipo)

I've heard that with lipos, it will go full auto due to the MOSFET not being able to hold back all that juice. I would recommend a butterfly type, if it has the same connector I can't see why it wouldn't work.

You heard wrong then. Unless ICS's mosfet goes against the entire principle of a mosfet, and at that point, it shouldn't be called a mosfet at all.
The whole point of a mosfet is to regulate current discharge from the battery. That is the basic principle of a mosfet. A lot of mosfets out there have fancy features, like burst programmer, but at the very base of it, it regulates currents from batteries to avoid over discharging and destroying wires, motors, or the batteries themselves. I never heard of a mosfet not being able to hold back the juice. Might happen with the rarer 14.8v LiPo's, but not the more standard 7.4v and 11.1v LiPo's. With 7.4v LiPo's you don't need to worry about over discharging or anything like that, they are slightly more powerful than 9.6v Nimh's. With 11.1v's, a lot of people will say you need a mosfet for them, but a lot of others will say that you don't need a mosfet and haven't had any problems with 11.1v's in stock guns. I say that, too, but I might just be lucky. Truth be told though, 7.4v's work perfectly for up to a M130 spring. Anything higher would mean using an 11.1v, to be able to charge the motor enough to pull the heavy spring.
Point is, ICS Garand should really be able to handle 7.4v or 11.1v LiPo's easily and without worry, and if you don't upgrade the spring and motor in the Garand, you don't need a 11.1v LiPo, just stick with the 7.4v for that. In a stock gun, the trigger response of a 7.4v and 11.1v LiPo are going to be the same, you can only give a stock gun so much trigger response without messing with the internals.

I agree that the mossfet wouldn't be a reason for a Lipo not being compatible. I use a small tamiya clip 9.6 volt battery in my ICS and it works fine. I do not have any Lipo batteries although I had always planned to do so. My ICS Grease gun has very limited space and a 7.4 Li po would probably be the best solution. As it is I mount a small battery in a carbine pouch on the wire stock.
Let us know how your range experience goes with your Garand.

Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
