The factory glued-in bearings had to be knocked out to make way for the more reliable bushings. Nice of VFC to glue them in, but not sure why they moved away from the solid bushings. Gains from bearings are minimal.

Siegeteks are dropped in and shimmed to sub-0.5mm tolerance.

The Rocket Airsoft piston head was chosen in lieu of the usual Lonex POM head due to comparable weight (5.33g for the RA; 5.1g for the Lonex) and substantial cost difference. Also, the Rocket Airsoft head is thicker which contributes to AoE correction.

The rest of the parts are pedestrian as per usual. The whole gearbox is shown complete and ready to close with any requisite tuning done along the way.
