What Are Type 0, 1, 2, and 3 cylinders?

  • Type 0: Type 0 Cylinders are full volume cylinders that use all the amount of air in the cylinder to propel a BB forward. Works best with 363mm to 550mm inner barrel lengths as that amount of air will be needed to push bbs farther in Rifle and DMR-style builds.
  • Type 1: Type 1 Cylinders are ported cylinders that are cut right at the edges of a cylinder to utilize a portion of the full amount of air volume. Works best with 318mm to 510mm inner barrel lengths for Carbine-like builds.
  • Type 2: Type 2 Cylinders are ported cylinders that have inset cuts a third of the way into a cylinder to allow more air blow-off. Works best with 280mm to 430mm inner barrel lengths for PDW and CQB builds.
  • Type 3: Type 3 Cylinders are ported cylinders that are cut at about the middle of the way into a cylinder to let half the overall air volume generated to be blown out. Works best with 45mm to 229mm inner barrel lengths for extremely short barrel builds and CQB oriented DSG builds.

    "his is a really good cylinder. Being made of chromium, it is really sturdy and won't break anytime soon. The inside is nice and smooth, especially if you grease it up with air seal grease. Coupled with a Guarder cylinder head, you can get perfect air seal.

    "Stephen. The cylinder has nothing to do with Gearbox version.

    This is a "full cylinder" for AEG that has a "long barrel". (G3, M16, AK, P90.....) Anything with a 400mm or longer barrel will need a "full cylinder" in the gearbox, to give the piston enough air compression / time.

    A full cylinder will work on ANY barrel length.

    When the AEG barrel is short, you can consider a cylinder with holes, to speed up the cycle rate.

    I hope this info helps.
