In the spirit of trying to find a C rating or discharge rate for the A123 18650 cells, I searched around the interwebz for stats and found a lot of conflicting info. Some sites say that the max...

That's true, but then again, my oldest gun was one I bought in 2000. It still has its original trigger switch and probably has well over 250,000 shots through it. The longevity of the trigger...
