I bought a new carrier with no piston from Kengs and I am getting a new piston to put on it I have no idea how to install it. Seems like the piston moves some on the one in the rifle now. Do I leave it loose a little or tighten the piston down against the carrier? What size holes is drilled and how far in on the threaded end to the hole? Is the hole in the piston bigger than the hole trough the carrier so the piston can move? How hard does the pin need to be. Can a roll pin be used instead of a solid pin?

Thanks

It should have a little movement when screwed in and pinned. Do not bottom it out, pin it at the first alignment of the holes, short of bottoming.

New pistons do not have any holes.

Screw it in all the way, back it off 1/2 turn, drill and pin.
