I switched to chrome pistons years ago and have recently been using nitride ones. Will never go back to standard.

Not a Bula but back when SA was common and CHEAP I had to switch to a coated piston to avoid cleaning the gas system on a weekly basis. Buy one, I'm betting you'll like it.

They work super.

I went to the Sadlak TiN coated gas piston a few years ago. Never had a reason to change.


Cheers,
