Airsoft Trigger Switch vs. LiPo Battery

Ever wondered what the inside of those Airsoft trigger switches in many of our beloved Airsoft machine guns looks like?

Yea, me neither, until I had to pull one apart to see what it's freakin' problem was.

Airsoft trigger switch, M249 trigger switch, SAW trigger switch, M60 trigger switch, mk43 trigger switch, M240 Bravo trigger switch, Elite Force trigger switch, Ares trigger switch, lever switch, electrical lever switch, Airsoft MOSFET, electrical circuit switch, lithium polymer battery packs, Li-Po battery packs, LiPo battery packs, Li-Poly battery packs, LiPo battery packs, C-Rating, Discharge rate, rate of discharge, Airsoft Machine guns, Pyramyd Airsoft Blog, Airsoft guns, Tom Harris Media, Tominator,
You might recall from my A&K M60VN Review that I was having some trouble inside the gun, likely because I was using an 11.1V Li-Po battery pack that had too high of a C-Rating (rate of discharge).

Here is the link to that series of blogs to catch you up to speed.
