The Real Deal Airsoft Performance Piston assembly 

Wide use Piston, for use in majority gearboxes that use  V2 and V3 Pistons. There is an option to purchase without a bonded rack, for users that wish to short stroke or remove excess teeth for DSG builds, simply purchase that variant. We recommend to leave one extra tooth after release tooth for added structural integrity when modifying for DSG.

**Important Tech Tip***
This Piston has a thick reinforcement on the rear of the piston behind the pick up tooth. You can damage this portion of the piston if you trip the anti reversal latch upon disassembly. When the anti reversal latch is tripped when under spring tension, especially with Duel Sector Gears , the sector will spin the reverse way and release tooth will cycle backwards smacking into the polymer support. 
The prototype versions during beta testing all intentionally had the support removed to test this scenario. No failures occurred. Test was 70k rounds 18:1 DSG M160 Spring. 

Drop in fit for standard v2 and V3 spec.

‍Why upgrade your piston, why the Angle of Engagement mod? 

‍Your piston gets pulled by metal gears. If not all, the majority of your teeth on your piston are polymer. They will get stripped out. For long term durability, this upgrade is crucial, and it is important to ensure proper alignment and engagement between the gears and your piston, this way you can have confidence as you clap[ cheeks on the field with your increased cycle speed. 

High speed without the sacrifice of durability. The goal of The Real Deal’s parts are performance & durability. 

Being that this piston is AOE corrected via the Spacer, third tooth modification is unnecessary. If you wish to have 3rd tooth modification, purchase our AOE Mod Piston Body.

I'm not brand loyal, but the quality and design of the piston is undeniable. It comes pre-bonded, pre-AOE corrected, the best porting on the market, and the piston body is the smoothest in every gearbox I've ever fit it into. These are all that I install. And you should do the same.
