Win 100 gas problems
So my Win 100's piston is corroded awful! I'm pretty sure I'm getting gas blow-by cause it fails to eject sometime. The cyl and the piston are steel and I think, hard chromed. I think I would like the piston to be 416 S.S. Would 416 hold up to heat, pressure and pounding? Would it have to be heat treated? Could the cyl also be 416 S.S. ? Or should it be a different material?
If I have a piston made of 416, how close tolerance should the piston head be to the I.D. bore of the cyl? Don't want the cyl to 'bite' the piston after a few shots. Metallurgy and machining experience a plus here. Thanks.
