EDIT: To add, I think that the brass would be stronger, while being easier to machine than SS. I could see where anodizing the current designs would help tolerances, albeit the fact that the anodizer they use tends to have anno that's on the thin side (just look at all the dust black Gen1's, heck my feed tube got scratched just from being put on my desk.)

And to throw my hat into the ring, I do like the current version of the piston, I still use the "thinner" one as of right now with no issues. Taking the "set it and forget it" approach has worked out for me so far
you're experience is one in a thousand. Maybe just luck, but damn... Why is it that yours works so nice? Never mind. There is no explanation.

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...
