"So far I own 5 of these pistons. I bought two back in 2008 and the remaining three in 2015. They haven't let me down yet and the 2008 two are still top notch shape after of the use they been through.
"I had this piston in a gun running on a 14:1 gear set and a Matrix 5000 series high speed motor. The piston I got was not perfectly symmetrical, and the grooves on the sides got misaligned and jammed up against the piston guide grooves in the gearbox shell. Subsequently, the teeth strip got ripped out the back of the piston and broken in half by the sector gear. I got a second one and have had no issues with it at all in a DSG build. The piston itself is great, but the quality control is a bit lacking.
"This piston is quite weak. In every gun that I have had this piston in, the rack gets ripped out the back even after using epoxy and superglue on the piston rack. Granted my builds are around 400 or so FPS with .25 at around 29-35 ROF depending on the build, these pistons are not as strong as they make it seem. Save your self the time and get an SHS piston. Much stronger and will last much longer. If you want a piston for a stock gun just to increase reliability, this will do the trick. But take a gun techs word and get the SHS piston.
