If it has a battery and a gearbox, this is where it belongs

Some of those pistons are meant for high-powered setups, not to mention heavy. You could always swiss cheese some them.... I would get an Azimuth or G&P white.

Oh, and why did you list an SR length piston for a stnd. m4?

Accident, late at night just toying with the idea of switching the piston. I was tired and not paying attention.
Actually decided the only thing I'm going to change from the stock will be the Piston Head to a G&G poly one.
Until I break my stock piston, which shouldn't happened if I play with it right :]

I woudnt advise it, there are much better pistons out there, especially for that price.

Your keeping the stock spring, right? if so systema duracon piston head, or some kind of POM one.
if your using a weaker spring, element orange.

Agreed, don't get that g&g. My friend got one, and the quality and seal isn't impressive. Not worth the, what $17, you pay for it. G&P v2 explosive should work ok - it's made of the same material as their new pistons. Though I wouldn't run it above an m130. Also try Systema duracon or Promy POM.

Oh and I was comparing the Systema and Area 1000 piston heads. Is there any difference besides the price? They seem to be the same except with a different name.

my decision was between
G&P v2
G&G poly
Systema duracon
Promy POM

after some extensive thinking and consideration I decided to go with the Systema Duracon :]
Let's see how my gb will sound after the switch :]

Any of those will certainly be better than an aluminum IMO.

The promy is more expensive than the others though. I think it's like $30.

imo the aluminum for the vfc is a fine stock piece. a little louder than what I want though. The Duracon should fix that annoying metal against rubber sound :]

Metal doesn't absorb shock as well as plastic does, so you have a higher chance of breaking your gearbox if you use a metal piston, piston head or cylinder head...
