Wassup? During my time last weekend tearing it up at SC Viper, I did some serious work with the A&K M60VN machine gun.  But it wasn't all fun & games.  I had trouble throughout the day with my battery pack, which is stored inside the box mag, because it kept toggling the switch on the side of the box mag either into the "Off" position or the "Continuous" feed position, which caused the magazine to continually try and feed BBs into the gun, even though the gun wasn't firing.

If you watch the following video at the 3:00 mark, you will hear the box mag start feeding on its own because the switch got flipped by the battery.  
Of course, as you could see, it came at a most inopportune time, as I was in the process of clearing a room and trying to be somewhat stealthy.

So the easiest fix to prevent this is simply to remove the box mag, then leave the switch in the "Auto" feed position, or if your box mag is like mine and the wires were installed by the mfr backwards, then switch it into the position labeled, "Continuum." Once you've verified that the switch is in the "Auto" position.  Simply place a piece of duct tape over the switch.  This will prevent the battery pack from being able to bump the switch into other feed modes and thereby undermining your killing spree.

Boom.  As the "Ranger" GI Joe from Action Figure Therapy would say,
"Problem solved.  Problem staying solved."
