However it is true you should have a reversal latch more than you shouldnt.
You completely missed what I was saying.

If you pull the trigger as the piston is un-winding, the gears will do a revolution, catch the piston in mid-cycle and most likely strip it. Same concept as firing the gun alot while it's jammed.
