    Hi guys, first off I am not sure if this is the right category for this question but I wasn't sure where else to post it. My question is has anyone had any experience with a bravo 8mm reinforced shell? I want to know if it can indefinitely withstand a 130 spring. I'm building a DMR and yesterday I dropped a new spring, spring guide, piston, piston head, and cylinder head in and decided to run with the stock shell until it broke, which not surprisingly happened this morning. I want this shell because it is in my price range, comes with bearings, and I've had good experiences with bravo parts in the past. So will it take a 130 spring?

    i think those might be rebranded Lonex shell, which are very good. Just buy a Lonex shell, will probably be a bit cheaper since it's not a rebrand. It should easily withstand an M130 spring. If you want anything stronger you'll have to get one of those aluminum shells.
