Our take: The SHS premium stainless steel ported cylinder provides an airtight seal with SHS piston and cylinder heads, designed for carbine length barrel (363-407mm) AEGs. The rear facing ports allow the piston to accelerate faster, maximizing air pressure within the cylinder. This is ideal for AEGs with medium length inner barrels (363-407mm). Utilizing this premium SHS ported cylinder can also increase the muzzle velocity of your stock AEG, due to the maximized compression within the cylinder! Performance upgrade cylinders allow for better air compression, ultimately leading to more power for your AEG. Typically, replacing a stock cylinder with an SHS upgraded cylinder will allow for an increase of 10-40 FPS in shooting performance.
The SHS stainless steel ported cylinder is a great way to increase the reliability and performance of your AEG, especially if you combine it with a premium SHS piston and cylinder head!
For reference, many stock AEGs come with wide bore cylinders that allow air to escape during compression, thus resulting in a loss of consistency and muzzle velocity. This SHS premium performance cylinder decreases friction and maximizes compression!

SHS X-Mod Upgrade Part Series: An Airsoft Megastore Exclusive
The SHS X-Mod upgrade part series is an all-new line of SHS parts manufactured and distributed EXCLUSIVELY by Airsoft Megastore. The X-Mod series of parts are NOT to be confused with generic "SHS" parts currently on the marketplace, as the X-Mod parts are NOT BUILT THE SAME.
SHS is a leading performance part manufacturer, and Airsoft Megastore has engaged SHS directly to manufacture the X-Mod upgrade parts, which are now exclusively available at Airsoft Megastore.
The difference between SHS X-Mod parts and generic "SHS" parts currently in the marketplace is a noticeable improvement in consistency of quality and an improvement in build material. X-Mod parts are manufactured out of the latest and most advanced high performance materials with no shortcuts taken. X-Mod parts have been contracted by Airsoft Megastore to undergo a 12-point manufacturing quality assurance test (at every stage of the manufacturing process) to ensure sustained high quality.
The results are quite noticeable: SHS X-Mod parts consistently out-perform the competition, and are on-par with the highest quality upgrade parts available on the market, but at extremely competitive prices that won't break the bank.
