    The threaded insert looks it came from AAC.

      Better look a bit closer. That’s actually where some of the innovation lies. Typical Pistons have ports or holes drilled or milled perpendicular to the bore axis. These are a bit different rather than just a hole that passively allows gas to escape these are designed to actually force and direct gas away from the bote axis and terminate at the exterior edge of the blast baffle. The cross section of that area of the piston more closely resembles that of a baffle. Looks like a typical piston. Not a typical piston. I can totally see how you would be confused.

    I want it, but I don’t intend to spend $1,100 to acquire one. Seems a bit steep regardless of the meter.
