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