The G&G Special Nylon Nano Co-alloy Piston is made from brand new technology that make it very light and very strong. Nylon Nano Co-alloy offers the strength of an aluminum piston but the flexibility and lightweight features of a polycarb; it's the best of both worlds. G&G has some of the best R&D in the industry, which is why they eliminated the second to last tooth on this piston, a known stress relief technique by master technicians. This piston is recommended for use with highly upgraded guns.
The pistons color varies from the picture, it is now gray.
The use of aftermarket airsoft parts is not an exact science. Some parts may require fitting even thought they were designed to fit without modification. Professional installation of upgrade parts is highly recommended.

THis thing has soaked up *silly* amounts of abuse. I installed one of these in my RPK before I learned about how important AoE shimming was, and for about two years worth of games, averaging two episodes each where I would dump two drum magazines to support a charge, letting up only to switch, I finally took it apart for maintenance. THe third tooth was a little chewed, and the fourth was just a tiny bit squashed.
THe previous pistons were unable to survive this sort of abuse, being a factory CA reinforced piston and some other polycarb piston I sourced from a pal at a game.
This thing really is incredible.
I have since cleaned up the marring and adjusted angle of engagement with the sector gear, and I anticipate no further appreciable wear in a reasonable timespan.
Lighter than aluminum
Versatile (high speed/high-strain both OK)
G&G's wierdo tolerances (too fat for some shells. High durability makes it a chore to "adjust")
Relatively high cost initially (in the long run, easy to appreciate)

Looks promising, very solid construction. I will note, however, the second to last tooth was still there, and not missing as pictured.
- second to last tooth wasn't shaved

I have used this monster of a piston in both high speed and high fps setups and it performs well in any situation. It is extremely strong and light and will not break or strip. I highly recommend this piston for pretty much anything.
Strong enough to dull a file
Has had the second to last tooth pre-removed
