There used to be a fuse that goes there. Most people take them out and put the copper ends directly together so that the fuse can't blow. Also uses less power from the battery.

The problem you are experiencing doesn't sounds like a battery issue. Try with anther battery and if it does the same thing then it's an internal/wiring promelm.

Battery getting hot means too much power is being drawn from it.  This usually means a short.  A fuse would blow in this situation which is exactly why the guns include one in the first place.  :)

fixed it thanks for the help guys   took it apart cleaned up the gears  made sure no teeth were missing  thank god nothing was . replaced wires and trigger connector for good measure   put a 32amp fuse in it for some reason anything lower than that wouldnt cycle on semi   now it works great :) all thats left is to get a peq box since battery doesnt fit lol :)
