The battery for the gun is in the box mag, and the connection runs through the mag well. Of course it's got a deans connector right where the mag well is so you can quickly detach the whole thing. Although I'm not sure about the full stock versions, I don't think we have a full stock G&P in manitoba actually lol
It uses a separate 9v battery to run the loading mechanism, but I found them underpowered to keep up above 1200rpm, and they kept dying. So I hooked mine directly to my 11.1v LiPo.
The two principles are that if you have a para stock, you'll still have room for a large battery. And if you're using NiCd batteries from 5 years ago, they only had enough juice to last 2500 rounds, so you change batteries when you change boxes. Kind of irrelevant with today's batteries, but it's extra redundancy.
