Real Sword SVD Piston

So just recently got the real sword AEG SVD and it shot quite well until it stopped feeding. I don't know if this was because of the mag, low power battery (7.4 lipo, getting 9.6) or problems in the gear box.

So anyways I opened up the gun with my dad and we cleaned the inside of the gearbox and stuff like that, but then when we put it back together and tested it. It wouldn't shoot out any air. So, we opened it up again and we saw that the piston's teeth were stripped. It turns out, quote on quote, "The Real Sword SVD's piston is a P.O.S." :doh:

So we're going to have to replace that... Any suggestions? And the gun wasn't the most accurate thing in the world so do you guys suggest any simple upgrades for it? Also, what could the feeding problem be? I think my mags feed just fine, but I'm gonna get a hi-cap just to see if it feeds better and I'll get a 9.6 since I wanted to get that anyways.

You both are looking at how the gearbox works incorrectly. Go look at some diagrams on how a gearbox works and it will help aton. Samething with the hop up.
Even if the bb fits in the hop up fine does not mean it is messed up. Could be a bad hop up arm, bad bucking, so forth. Secondly your bbs feeding aren't depended by pulling the trigger more for the gears. You may be saying that you have to pull the trigger more so that the motor turns the gear. Are you using a lipo?
Honestly it maybe, because we are telling you somethings that might be the issue but you dismiss most of them because "it looks fine". You really must look and inspect everything. Get us some pictures. Help us help you.
