So far the best piston body for m150+ is the Deepfire Titanium Piston.

But recently new Deefire Pistons have been failing.  We came up with mods to add rings on the back of the piston body to keep the teeth up.

If KWA was to make a high performance Piston body, I think it would be nice if they improved Deepfires design and add a ring on the back to keep the  1st tooth up.

I second that! if deepfire becomes unreliable then we have no one to turn to but the pros at KWA lol! id love to be able to just rely on KWA for any performance part, word does spread fast amongst airsofters regarding good parts, might be solid market eh?

Deepfire? I've heard that the best pistons on the market are Supercore pistons.

Then again, I haven't really been keeping up with all the technical stuff lately.

The following would be a suggestion for KWA engineers ;):

I am currently trying out the newly released JG full metal teeth piston:

The ball-bearing components are amazingly well built and look similar to the Guarder counterparts:

The Element ball-bearing components of the aluminum piston head look puny in comparison to the above.

Teeth are very tough to grind down *indicating* (it's *not* a proof!) that it's a good quality metal:

So, how about KWA?

With springs like m150 above and metal toothed pistons (half) the problem lies on the 1st tooth and the support that the back part of the piston is giving it.
The 1st tooth usually ends up being pushed in by the gears because of the heavy load. The metal ring reinforcements did work.

For springs 130 below I would prefer polycarb teeth than metal/titanium.

@Jawz : That Jinggong piston body is a copy of the Systema Piston body. Im really skeptical about lowend AEG parts :rolleyes:

I hear you.  But from experience, JG is always good for a surprise.  So the only thing one can really do is to thoroughly *test* it without bias ;).  As you know, even big brand names are not immune to failure.

Yeah you are right. There are even new brand names that come out and to thoroughly test the will be a chance you will have to take who knows right?
