So I finally got my KWA gearbox open to replace the stripped piston and now I'm thinking that was the wrong diagnosis.

Is that stripped piston? Because it looks fine to me. (The Black one, the white one was the new piston I ordered.)

Before I go ahead and install a new one, I wanted to check.

Nope, it's not the piston. After some on ASB sent me a guide to noises your gun makes when something strips, I believe I found the problem. A stripped sector gear.

this brings joy in my life! with the number of epic gearbox fails that I have experienced...you learn to let the grinding of gearbox internals to be painful yet exciting. Though sometimes expensive....busted parts means upgrades!

Enjoy the frustrations of gearboxing my friend!
