Is a PEQ box something I should consider purchasing as well? Seems like they hold batteries and help extend battery life I think?

Sorry for so many questions but I like to know what's good or not before I buy.
Turnigy is your best bet, we only recommend it. you picking vfc is great too, as they are the best

Hobbyking is all over the world, us ships faster, but international works depending where your items are, you may have to do international.

No, the one i linked you should be the exact same style/ones you get.

Don't get a peq box, unless you want it for looks. Peq box batteries are for front wired guns, I.E VR16 STINGER. Your gun is rear wired, and the QRS stock is huge, so it can house tons of battery space.

Just get the one I linked you, and a smart charger, like the genuine imax b6

Ok great thank you. So the 1 stick variant is what my gun takes and not the 3 stick variant right? The 3 stick battery wouldn't fit right?

As for the charger, is this the one you were referring to?

LOL But the 3 stick would fit though? LOL

I just found a charger on UCT, this one. Is that the right one?

don't know, they are meant for crane stocks iirc. G&P used to have the 7.4 in big ass three pack, and you put 1 in the middle, 1 in the left corner, and 1 in the right corner.

i don't see why you want to bother with 3 sticks. It'll work, problem is will it fit?

yes to the imax, not sure if its genuine or not, but id suspect it is legit.

Just wondering about the batteries, good to know everything. Looks like 11.1 is the way to go?

You'll have to upgrade and get a mosfet if you want to use 11.1 LiPos, else you risk arcing your trigger contacts.

Oh so a 11.1 can't be used of the box on the VFC VR16 Saber? Is upgrading it to be compatible worth it/easy?

Or would it be better to get a gun that comes with a mosfet?

If you keep worrying about all the fine details you're gonna never get anywhere.

He didn't say you can't run it, he said "risk," I've been running 11.1v solid for the past few months with no problems.

When somethings happens, then you look into it.

Just buy it, and go from there. Yes you'll have to upgrade at one point, do it when something breaks, if it breaks.

If you're SUPER WORRIED, get 7.4V and deal with it, nothing should break from there, you'll just get "poorer" performance.

Airsoft is wear and tear.

Edit:

only worth mentioning VFC that comes with a mosftet is the 2015+ 416's, but they are outta your price range.

Ok good to know about the batteries.

Out of curiosity, what gun would you recommend from VFC that comes with a mosfet?

I found this. Not an 416 though, just the Saber.

Krytac guns come with factory installed mosfets. Krytac is a newer brand, it doesn't yet have the same customer loyalty as VFC does here on ASC, but they're arguably just as good or better than VFC (depending on who you ask). Can't go wrong with either, both are good investments.

That retailer installed aftermarket mosfets in a limited batch of Sabers, hence the extra cost. The only VFC's that come with factory installed mosfets are the H&K lineup.

Ooooh more choices! Thank you for the input.

Hmm, I really like this one.

Sorry if it seems I'm all over the place, just looking at what's available and such. I'd be willing to spend around $500 on a gun if it's worth it, such as the Krytac SPR.

Like would the Krytac Trident SPR at just under $500 be better than the VFC VR16 Saber's regular price of $479.99 (current sale is $434.99)?

Any thoughts on G&P?

Would that VFC with the retailer installed mosfet be worth getting or are they asking too much for it ($579.99)?
