They look like the electric cylinders that down n locked used.
Ive no idea if DnL are still in business OR if they sourced the pistons from another supplier.

The solenoids are from “Down and Lock” the connections are moved in different position to match Xicoy gear controller. Originally down and lock was providing controller..

Very difficult to get in touch with down and lock.. not sure if they are still in business..
