Alright. I have a question.

I have a SAI M1A. It fails the piston tilt test. The action and oprod test is passes, however. With the barreled action out of the stock you can watch the piston VERY slowly move into or out of the GC. It does not move to and fro freely. I take it this is a problem - if so, what do I do? The piston is marked BKFLD PRCS TL. It looks like the front part is TiN coated whereas the tail is standard SS.

So what say you? I appreciate the comments.

If it moves at all, you are fine. If the rifle is new, it will probably smooth out over time.

The markings would indicate Brookfield Precision Tool. I didn't know they made pistons.

I have one of the Brookfield Precision pistons also. Excellent part.

One consideration if your piston doesn't slide freely is whether your gas cylinder lock is on so tight that it is bending the gas piston on the back end against the shoulder of the barrel.

As for lubricant, I usta use something called "Friction Block" but I don't think the stuff is made any more. I just put a drop on a patch and wiped down the piston with it after shooting. It would not burn to a crisp like most lubricants.

Nice receiver

No, not that receiver, the FM / AM on the table in the back. I bought the same one in Germany in the early 80's.

Thanks from tonyben
