Gate Power CNC Aluminium Hybrid Piston Head

Code: PH-PH2
  • CNC Aluminium construction
  • For high performance and DMR builds
  • Compatible with all standard AEG gearboxes

If you are building up a DMR AEG you will want one of these inside! The Power CNC Aluminium Hybrid Piston head from Gate combines innovations from the AEG piston head market with those from Sniper rifles to allow the weight of the piston head to be adjusted to help reduce power loss when using heavy BBs (>0.3g). With the Hybrid Piston Head you have the choice; either install the piston head alone for improved air seal, longevity and reduced friction, or if you're building a DMR you can add the included weight pads to increase the weight of the piston, and reduce lost FPS when using BBs weighing over 0.3g. Perfect for a DMR build, but equally great in a standard AEG build, Gate has really broken the mould with this one!

Full description


The Gate Power CNC Aluminium Hybrid Piston Head is the perfect piston head for a DMR build, but can also produce phenomenal results in a standard AEG build. The piston head is equipped with ball bearings for smooth, friction-free running and includes a pair of spacers which can be used to increase the weight of the piston to prevent FPS loss when using heavy BBs.

Being constructed from aluminium gives this piston head superb rigidity and the ability to handle springs of any strength while keeping the part light enough to be used in standard builds without adding strain to the internals. Included with the set is an angle of engagement (AOE) correcting spacer which can be installed to help ensure perfect gearbox timing and reduce wear in the long term.

For a DMR build, you won't find a more suitable piston head. The ability to alter the weight of the piston head is God's gift to the DMR user with high standards and the desire to tune to perfection, and if you are working your way up to a DMR build with incremental upgrades you can use the piston head immediately and add the additional weight pads when you want to bend the laws of physics!

Parts Fitting

Upgrades and Downgrades should only be undertaken by experienced players, or Airsoft Technicians. Please note, changing any internal parts of a weapon voids its warranty unless done in-house by our staff. 

Please ensure that when fitting parts the part purchased is the correct part, as once a part has been fitted we cannot accept return.

We do know that players love to tinker, so we're here to give you help should you require it, and if needed you can get in touch with our workshop for more help!

Unique Parts

Please note that some parts may be unique to a specific brand of weapon. For example: Parts for an ASG M4A1 may not fit an ICS M4A1.

Parts from the same brand typically have a high chance of fitting, though be warned, some replicas use unique parts, so please ensure the part will fit before you attempt to fit it.

If you require help with fitting any parts feel free to get in touch with us via our Contact Us Page.
