Need help with broken winchester sx2 piston

Hey all,

Long story short- Bought the gun brand new in 2006 specifically for clays. Worked well until 2010. Parked it for clays but shot it twice with remington sluggers hunting until last month (graduated college, lived in an apt, bought a house, got married). Took it apart, thoroughly cleaned everything and gun worked fine for about 15 rounds and then stopped cycling again. Took it apart and the gas piston spring is busted. Now I know for a FACT that it wasn't when I cleaned it because I looked for breakage. So it broke with 1oz low brass. Oh well

Real question- I will probably get this piston sealed to cycle down to 7/8oz load like it is listed to do from factory but am looking for suggestions of other options- like if anyone knows of a super light load rebuild kit that works. This piston will be used for 7/8 to 1-1/8oz loads only. Maybe this? http://www.midwayusa.com/product/493004/...-12-gauge-light

Then there's if I ever go waterfowling- Can anyone recommend a gas piston for those heavy 3inch loads? I am looking at this but am looking for opinions. (winchester sx2 and browning gold use the same piston I believe?)http://www.ebay.com/itm/browning-gol...p2054897.l4275

Thanks!
