I need a picture please!

Can someone post a pic of a Chinese M14 gas cylinder from the top of the cylinder?

I need to determine if a gas cylinder that I have is Gi or Chinese.

Gas Cylinder pic?

Until someone posts a side by side comparison pic for you, check out Differents site. I am sure its in there some where.

I don't think I have such a photo on the web site or in my photo library. I'm a terrible photographer and any photo I might take would not help.

If you compare a USGI gas cylinder side by side with a Chinese gas cylinder you'll notice a difference in the flat horizontal surface that is at top center. The Chinese gas cylinder horizontal surface has a short vertical height above the cylinder whereas the USGI horizontal surface is machined flat to meet the cylinder contour.

Thank you so much Different!

It now seems that the gas cylinder I bought is Chinese!

I got it from US Armory and was told it is USGI......
