Default New gas tube

I just recieved a new gas tube for my wasr 10/63 but its shorter than my old one. When its latched in it barely touches the front part. I cant get it to pop off but im still worried that bad things might happen. ( sorry cant be more specific im an ak nub and i dont know correct terminology). Should I test fire it or return it and get a new one?

I have a feeling someone mixed that gas-tube up with a different model's gas tube. I'd return it and get another one. I wouldnt feel comfortable with that little of contact on the gas-block considering the amount of friction between the gas-piston and the gas-tube can be violent at times.
Just curious, where did you buy the gas-tube from?

It wouldnt be the first time they picked out the wrong part. I just ordered a cylinder assembly for an old revolver I'm working on for a customer and they sent me one from a completely different model than what I told them. Got to return it and call to order next time so I can explain the part to them. Still, for the odd obscure part that's hard to track down or get a good deal on I usually end up going to them.

Definitely get a new tube. I can think of a couple variants that use shorter tubes, so I'm sure it was just a mix up. Get a length on yours and tell them you need it to be (x) inches long.
