Details: The Lonex Red Piston is a dependable performer and has many favorable design choices that most Airsmiths look for. For one, this Piston has a tooth omitted for AoE correction. The teeth are reinforced on both sides, and the Pickup tooth is nice and bulky. These Pistons also go through more strict QC and manufacturing than the SHS Pistons. The Lonex Red is pretty hard and heavy, so I suspect that it uses more glass fibers than the SHS molds.

Another interesting feature is the presence of Nylon pickup teeth instead of a full metal rack. Using Nylon instead of metal reduces stress on the Gear train, thus increasing the reliability of Gear operation.

Lonex (for some odd reason) decided to label these Pistons as Polycarbonate. Thankfully, these Pistons are NOT Polycarbonate. They are actually Glass-fiber filled Nylon like the SHS Pistons. Polycarb is not a suitable material for the prolonged stress in Airsoft Gearboxes.

Although rare, AEG's can suffer from compression jams and other unforeseen mishaps. If that happens with this Lonex Piston, the Piston will likely strip which can save the Gear set from crashing.
