View Full Version : DSA's Izzy Gas Piston

I just got it from FedEx, and it is about 1/2 inch longer than the original Izzy piston. Is this right or, rather, does this matter?

Just a thought, but maybe your old gas piston was a regular flavor and not the Izzy version?

Mine seems to work equally with either, FWIW.

My Izzy piston measures 11 3/4 inches long and the metric stg measures 11 1/2 inches. Over all length measurement on both. HTH

Both of the DSA US made Izzy pistons that I have came .100" or so longer than a correct, issue Izzy piston. DSA has a dimensional problem with their pistons being too long. Do a search and you will find this mentioned elsewhere.

Not all apparently have this problem. Both of my DSA Izzy HB pistons are the correct length when used with an Izzy gas plug.
