    I just got a G&P M16 and i wanted to put some upgrades into it. Heres what im thinking:
    Prometheus 509mm 6.03
    Guarder polycarb piston
    Systema area 1000 piston head
    Systema area 1000 cylinder
    Systema v2 non bore-up cylinder head
    Guarder sp120 spring
    Systema hopup
    Angels custom concave nub

    Good choices? Bad choices?

    I would recommend using Lonex or SHS parts instead. A standard polycarb piston is as brittle as glass in my experience, the Lonex enhanced or SHS 15 teeth piston are both extremely durable and affordable pistons. Replace all the Systema compression parts with Lonex, the spring is okay. The bucking and nub should work well. Prometheus are renowned for their barrels, so no complaints there, just remember to stabilize it properly, or you own't get the accuracy you were hoping for.

    Barrel is good.
    Piston isn't a good idea. Like NorTech said, grab an SHS 15T nylon.
    Systema is crap. Get a Lonex piston head
    Use a SHS Cylinder head. Just seal it with anaerobic gasket maker.
    Your stock cylinder is fine. Just polish it.
    Guarder sp120 = m130 is that sure you want that fps?
    Bucking is fine. Only good thing Systema makes.
    That nub is a waste IMO. Just flat hop the gun and make a flat nub for it.
