Default Frankenstein time!!!

I have a O.S. .21VG sitting around that my buddy blew the piston and sleeve cause he just wouldn't leave the tune alone, but I have been thinking about dropping a V-ZB piston and sleeve in the thing. They look very similar, but does anyone think it will work? I may just wait until my Speed piston and sleeve start loosing pinch. Toss that in there just to see what will happen and if it works buy a new one, but if someone has tried it let me know. For the price that I will pay for a new piston and sleeve at Amain for the VG, I can get the V-ZB for here in Japan. Thoughts anyone?

I saw this where someone used an OS RG and some V-Spec parts to make a hybrid:

According to the author of this project, the V-Spec piston fit into the RG sleeve albeit the fit was very snug.

Very interesting reading. Looks like they only used the piston and not the sleeve. I will definitely take a look at that. Thanks for the material.
