I am getting the CYMA Thompson in the mail, and it has the stock battery, well from my N64p to my airsoft guns and in between I like to get the best NiMH Batteries I can. I used google, and the search function on this site and dint find alot, but could this battery fit in my Thompson? www.batteryspace.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=2797
EDIT: Rather then make two posts, ill combine this one. I want a vertical foregrip in my CYMA thompson
But does it hurt or weaken the integrity of the barrel? And if not where can I find a wooden one, not a kit just the grip

If you remove the hard foam block from inside the butt stock, you should be able to fit that battery. However, it has a large connector. Your gun, unless its been modified, will have a small connector. Also, consider going to a 9.6 volt battery. It will increase your rate of fire appreciably (but not your fps). The internals of the Thompson can take the extra volts. Its a common thing to do.
Generally speaking, there is nothing harmful with putting a 9.6 volt battery in a Thompson. As I said earlier, it is a very common practice. When you are looking for a 9.6 volt battery (whether its a small battery or large), make sure you get one with a small connector. This can be problematic with the large type batterys as they normally come with a large connector.
FYI-batterys with a mah rating of about 1600 or less are typically small batterys. Small batterys typically come with a small connector. Batterys above 1600 mah are usually large type batterys and typically have large connectors. The battery in the picture you referenced was a large battery. Your gun will probably come with a small battery.
On the second page of posts you'll find some information from me on availability of the grip and some considerations you'll need to make. To answer you other question about the grip, I suppose the case can be made that the vertical grip may allow more force (torsional and torque) to be exerted on the mounting bar beneath the barrel. Another consideration!
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

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

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.
