I have a CQB with what i believe is a version 1 gearbox ( no logo )
the cylinder head has a small leak around the brass so i want to replace it with a 2 gasket all aluminum part. there must be 100s out there. which one?
also my O ring around the piston head is very loose, so i was considering just replacing the entire thing.
last, my cylinder is the older long port design, id like to build a plinker not intended for human use. would a smaller ported cylinder work out and which one? thanks.
CQB upgrade parts?

You can certainly change the cylinder head to an aluminum if you like but consider this for a moment. In a given mechanical system where enegy is transfered through motion of various parts, failure of these parts down the road at some point is inevitable. So I would think a fail safe point like a polymer cylinder head that would cost the least amount of money is best. Would you ranther replace a $15 cylinder head or a $80 gearbox shell? Metal cylinder heads are no good at absorbing such impact and thus transfers this energy to the front of the gearbox which can lead to GB failure.
