I put 80 rounds of the silver box Norinco ammo through my SKS on Sunday. Not a single problem. I'm thinking of getting more.
Everyone is an expert on the Internet when they don't have to quote sources. You should be masterJackOfAllTrades. We bow to your original expertness.
Thumbs up to CanAm professionalism in answering the OP's accusation since all the evidence was thrown away. Advice to ALL, when sh1t happens keep it in a bag so the true experts can examine the crap out of it
Common Sense is NOT common.
Is that 20 years of experience or 3 years of experience repeated 6.66 times?

And too be honest, I didn't even think that C.A. could/would help me out with this, or I would have thought to keep the parts and would have posted this thread earlier, like last Saturday when this happened.
You didn't think they'd help you out? Then why post in their area of CGN? I think these guy's are awesome, only had one issue out of multiple transactions and when I did, I e-mailed them and they were very good with regards to resolving the issue. I will continue to say nothing but good things about these guy's and encourage others to do business with them as well.
Have you seen a 1945 SVT-40 anywhere? That's the last one I need for my SVT collection and I'll pay a premium for one
I was just thinking that since the problem wouldn't have been their fault, it wouldn't really be their problem to fix. That was on Saturday. Then yesterday I decided it was worth a shot to see what they had to say about it so I posted in here.
I don't know who MasterYo is but giving him the benefit of the doubt as to working in China, I appreciate that his point of view is well earned even if not so eloquently stated.
I'll confirm that from my experience working in China (NOT in the Ammo business), I've developed a healthy respect for the Chinese in business and an understanding that nothing in Chinese business is ever to be taken for granted. For Chinese producers, pragmatism trumps QC whenever they're in conflict and for consumers, the principal of caveat emptor isn't a guideline, its a religion.
One has to understand that the Chinese hunger for the good life is pretty intense and that the good life isn't yet enjoyed by many but the government connected few. The temptation to take advantage of all opportunity, nobel or otherwise, is therefore just as intense.
I admire the Chinese. The work ethic of those not totally discouraged by the system is laudible and they are in their way, explicitly honest. Scrutiny is seen as a strength and is consistent in Chinese business whereas trust in absolute terms is a weakness to be exploited. Forget this for one minute and you loose. Remember it, and an association with Chinese business can be highly beneficial.
"When you have made evil the means of survival, do not expect men to remain good. Do not expect them to stay moral and lose their lives for the purpose of becoming the fodder of the immoral. Do not expect them to produce, when production is punished and looting rewarded. Do not ask, 'Who is destroying the world?' You are." - Ayn Rand
So just so were clear... ONE round, the first round, gave an issue and you havent shot any other rounds since, but others have with no problems. Seems to me like it was a bad round or something. Id be giving a few of them to my buddies to see how they shoot in their guns. I bet you have no issues with the rest.
