Blimey Jan, that's bad luck! 

Normally Fake is a misspelling, but in this case...

Thanks Garvin

I would think it is a challenge. and a good luck.

It is a very nice rifle and I would repair if so it does not end up in a garbage

Hope you can help with the measurement of the piston

You should be able to work out the diameter and length of the piston from the parts  you do have. When you, or a gunsmith, have done this, post back here with your findings.

This is what the piston looks like, a fairly standard shape:
