Actually, out of the box, I'd say the AK and M14 are the best winter AEGs because:
a) They support large pack batteries
b) They don't have version 2 gearboxes.

Of course, with modifications to get a large cell pack running on it, a P90 or G36C would also fit the bill.

I think it was red tiger who brought a m14 to use at the stargate game last christmas. It worked wonderfully. I don't remember exactly how cold, but it was REALLY cold and it was a night winter game.

His M14 is upgraded a lot and use a crazy big ass battery. He used it at colder games without problems.

Small battery word good if your gun is stock. I played several years with a stock G36 and small batterie. If you have a small batt, have 2 just in case.

do TM shotties, being all plastic, break easier in the cold. I had super 90 that broke in the summer and I have heard that the spas are better internals. Is there a danger in using TM shotties in cold games?

I'm kinda curious about this too. I was considering snagging a spas 12 just for colder games. (that, and they are just soooo dead sexay! )

Yes there is. I have broken a shotgun's nozzles in the winter

+1 to all these points. I've seen many V2's break below about -5 C. On the other hand, both my ICS M4's have functioned very well in plenty of winter games. The mechbox shells are a bit thicker, and I am sure I'll break one some day but I haven't so far.

NiCads are much more forgiving in the cold than NiMh. Lithium are even better. The age and condition of your battery will play a bigger role in colder weather. Keeping your battery warm will make it perform better, as cooling them will reduce the reactivity inside them. A lot of our army equipment that runs on batteries either uses lithium rechargeables or will have a built in heater of some sort.

In the winter I find putting your GBB in a shoulder holster improves it's efficiency in the cold. Same with the mags. Those nylon secret service type rigs works very well.

find out the mah/hr rateing on the charger it will say on the part that plugs into the wall, and then divide the mah of your batt by that to find out how long it will take in hours to charge to full capacity.

a 1200mah should last you half the day to 3/4 the day depending on your finger.

How about the v8 gearbox? I've read its based on the v2 so does it have the same problems in cold weather? (info on this mechbox is a <curseword> to find)
