    Reliability is the most important aspect of a firearm in my opinion. I would rather have a crappy gun that goes bang every time than a nice looking, accurate gun that jams.

    Now when you say it's inaccurate AND unreliable...

    I cleaned it right after unboxing.. I am not an M14 nut so it is possible I under or over greased something.. I have watched a few trouble shooting videos for M14s (one called the tilt test..) I'll give that a try. But to be honest... I prefer guns that don't need to be pampered with special lotion in special places. For $800 It should just go bang 5 times.

    I'd rather get 3 sks for the same price, at least, I'd have spare part at the ready.

    You're sure the gas system was turned on, because you can turn off the gas for single shots. Did it cycle at all?
    I love the smell of cosmoline in the morning

    Rotating this part turns it on and off. Vertical is on.

    Do the gas ports on the barrel and cylinder line up?

    Yes. I have worked out some kinks in the rifle i noticed with some slight binding in the action where the bolt goes back and forth. It now passes the "tilt test" and everything else looks good. Will see if I have it beat this weekend when I take it out again.

    UPDATE : So after doing some light sanding on the serial numbers on the piston (which was causing some drag) and a few hairs of metal, one in the receiver and one in the area where to piston protrudes through to the op rod.. I took the gun out to my range again for a second chance. No jams, flawless cycling, no problems. one quick elevation adjustment after the first group and you can see what happened for your self. I was shooting chinese 123grain FMJ mil-surp. there was a little wind and a fair amount of rain at approx 25 yards. Shot from standing with a shooting stick. My next groups were shot casually and still not bad. Very pleased.Name:  norinco update.jpg
