Hi guys,

 

Im upgrading my rifle to a 500 fps build.

 

The new piston is metal. Im worried about it striking the metal cylinder head and busting something.

 

Should i worry about padding the back of the cylinder head with a couple of mm thickness of something or will it be ok

 

If its advised, was thinking sorbopad or rubber tap washer or a piece of cut up mouse pad.

 

Cheers.

normally you'd have some kind of buffering on there anyway to correct the aoe.

Ah its a bolt action. Not aeg.

ahh right, well in that case you're not going to lose anything from adding a buffer.
