    Are you talking about an Retro/E-=Mag/X or a classic valve with both halfs stainless steel? One uses a thick flat on two sides seat and the other an o-ring (thick seat = classic).

    Either way, the piston should be able to slide fairly freely. It's the wide part at the top that does the sealing so rod itself doesn't have to be a tight fit.

    also if you have reg can be a good idea to get the piston spring changed...

    ive found they compress and change shape easily..

    i bought a very old mag..and i coudljnt figure out why it wasnt shooting right..i changed every oring in the gun..then was told to order a new spring and it worked like a charm
