thanks, thats exactly what i was looking for.

From looking at it, i can tell my AoE was correct already. for some reason im taking the teeth off the front of the piston.

hmmm, you mean it's taking teeth off the piston on the piston head side of the piston? not the spring guide side of the piston? That sorta sounds like pre engagement.

Can you tell me a little about your set up? Like, what piston, gears, spring, motor battery, etc.?

I actually had the same thing happen to my team mate's Socom gear/VFC M4 (Gasp!!) and he actually broke the metal tooth before stripping the first 5 teeth on the VFC OEM piston.

^ I've seen lots of VFC pistons strip, but fortunately that is the only failure point I've ever observed in their V2 gearboxes.

Yeah. Stock jg gears and motor, 9.6g 1400mah battery, polycarb piston of unknown brand, chrono'd 322 with .25s at fuldaset weekend.

edit: after looking closely, the shim job on my bevel and sector gear was bad as well, fair amount of up and donw play.

Well, it's probably not pre engagement then. Possibly firing during a jam? that would cause wear on the foremost teeth of your piston.

My spring guide came a apart during play last weeekend, at least i think it was last weekend. Not sure how that would affect it, except to maybe revent teh piston from fully cycling?

It could cause the spring to bind or the piston to be blocked from properly cycling, so yeah, that could have done your damage.

had this happen in a G36 I just recently fixed. It ended up being cheaper to buy back my old G36 gear box and replace the whole thing than to replace all the damaged internals in it.

The front part of the spring guide got lodged into the piece of metal that holds the stock spring to the back of the piston head which I assume is what caused the piston to strip the entire length, break the piston head off, damage the cylinder head... and I can't remember what else was wrong with it, but I know it's the worst GB I had ever seen in my short time doing tech work for our team.
