Hi.

ive been browsing the web to try and find what cylinder fits my kwa.

im gonna buy from redwolfairsoft so it would be nice if someone could give me a link or something:)

my kwa is very noisy stock, every shot says clonk clonk, and id like it to be more of a paff, paff (you get me?)

so what i want is a silent pistonhead hopefully without haveing to modify my AOE.
will this affect my fps or rof in any way?

im also installing a M100/M110 to get it to 350 fps , now at 385ish stock.(single fire with 10 m security distance is not very fun in combat:P)

im also replacing my hopup chamber to aluminum, this requiers some modifications tho, thight fit, but hopefully itll work:)

I don't think you will need to change out the cylinder for a quieter gun.  You can probably use a polycarb piston head with a soft sorbo pad on the cylinder head (since you will have to readjust AOE anyways when using a different brand piston head ).  
And there is nothing "silent" about silent piston heads so don't waste the money.  Besides if you use a silent head piston head you will have to use a cylinder head that will match that new part.

And I wouldn't mess with the hop-up setup.  Correct setup using aftermarket parts takes much work and I don't think the results will justify the amount of effort. Just my 2 cents.

ok, thanks. so you would recomend me using sorbo pad on my stock piston head? and adjust AOE. as a cheaper option.

sounds fair enough to me. just dont like the sound it gives now, sounds like alot of force is absorbed directly in GB, which is not good.

Adding sorbo pads to a stock piston head will throw off your AOE so I would recommend an aftermarket polycarbonate piston head when adding sorbo to adjust AOE.

Also the KWA piston head is not vented. An aftermarket PH will be vented.

If you plug up the nozzle a non ported piston head will not move backward or forward if there is a good airseal. A ported one will move backward and not forward so the non ported is a two way pump (suck blow)  and the ported is a one way pump (blow).

Check all the airsoft vendors for POM piston heads or use google "aeg pom piston head"

Do your homework!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

The theory is that ported piston heads will vent air from the ports and through the sides and expand the o-ring and the piston head moves forward thus allowing for greater air seal.  However, this aspect has never been scientifically proven when compared to that of say a kwa piston head.
But one thing that I do believe is that in a high speed setup, the piston can move slightly faster when being pulled back/cocked because of less resistance allowing for faster cyclic rate capability.
