    I got my tapco gastube I'n and my yugo gas piston nor my tapco gas piston will fit. I looked down the center of the tube and there's a small ridge I'n there they must have not got it smooth when boring it. I'm wording if i should send it back and be without for 2 or 3 weeks or just take a small file and knock it out so my piston fits. Will filing it make the gun not shoot right?

    Weird. I don't remember such on the tapco for my norinco SKS. Would it show in a picture?

    Probably not but I'll try. It halfway down on the inside of the gastube.

    Looks like a lake of some kind; have you considered a dehumidifier for your gun closet/safe?

    Call me picky, but i would return it for a new one and let Tapco worry about filing it down. If you do smooth it yourself, make it good; i would hate to end up with the piston stuck.
