    In the past I contributed to it, but T81 threads tend to burn out of control for a while before it gets locked

    2. if we dont voice our concern and continue to accept poor QC and sh!tty workmanship, thats what we will continue to get and that is not how our system works.
    3. just compare your new rifle to the first shipment, what a difference??? much improved so much for the cant change that "its a combloc, crude, normal and accept it... thank you sir" BS.
    1. Yep, it's not AK. I don't have an itch for AK, I had my share of time with them as dealer and as user. So I bought it as 7.62x39 gun, not as substitute for AK. However I can relate to the AK itch many of us have because of stupid laws. The reference to AK was because some ppl after seeing poor US reworks make conclusion that barrel misaligned in norm in such rifles manufacturing. It is not.
    2. Exactly my point. We should voice our concerns and TI get my respect in the fact they brought T81 and get my criticism in how they handled all the "bent rifles" issue.
    3. I'll give credit when the credit is due. I handled number of folders from old imports until I settled with "the most straight one". It still had deviation, I hadn't measured it. BTW there's an easy way to check if your rifle is straight on folder. Remove bolt and carrier, fold the stock and look through the hole in the rear of the receiver. Align the chamber hole with the hole you're watching through and you will see if bore is going down and right or goes straight. So I handled only 2 folders from SE batch. One was perfectly straight, no need to take measurement. Second one I saw misaligned just a tiny bit, so I could not see it by looking from the top, only way to see was to look through the hole in the receiver rear. I did not bother to measure, though. I'm keeping one SE folder that is perfectly straight. And even second one is significant progress compared with first batches of folders. Had my folder tested yesterday, rifle was not sighted at all (and not cleaned after factory test fire), but managed to sight it without excessive movement of the front sight post. So with my new SE folder I'm happy.

    That is a very helpful check, thanks Horilka. Nonetheless it appears my SE folder is strait and you can add another good one to the anecdotal pile.

    If you know a bit of modern Chinese history the Sino-Soviet split happened at the same time as China went through the cataclysm of the Great Leap Forward that threw all of chinese industry into absolute chaos, and then the Cultural Revolution from 1966 to 1976 threw the country into even worse chaos, really it would take a wall of text to describe the hellish conditions in China during those days (read Frank Dikotter's "A People's History" trilogy if you want to know) but yeah quality control for absolutely everything went completely down the ####ter, by 1981 the country was slowly recovering but it was still in extreme bad shape.

    That being said, are any more imports planned?

    thanks, thats an alternative way but i will stick to the old fashion way, looking down cos its faster to determined if its severely bent. my only concern is not get stuck with a severely bent one.

    Anyone know what the front sight post is for the 81 ? is it the same as an AK or SKS ? was looking to swap it for a fiber optic one so my old man eyes can see it better but now sure if its even replaceable
