Rt regulator pistons

Are the pistons in the classic RT and the ReTro valves interchangeable? The Retro seems to be of a stepped design and to classic a solid cylinder.

I cannot answer about the interchangeability of the piston between the valves, but I can say that the newer valve pistons allow for higher pressures. My rt classic piston was venting on me quite early when I was trying to tune my level X with the longer springs. Buying the newer piston from AGD allowed me to go higher without the venting issues out the back of the valve.

Yes they are interchangable. Same piston.

r/t, classic r/t, retro valve, and xvalve are all the same (stepped piston). a classic ( 68 automag/minimag) valve is totally different, thats just not going to work (straight cylindrical piston).
