Default Ebay Gas Plugs, trust?

I stumbled across these, wondering if anyone here has used them? I don't want to be cheap, but if they work equally as well as the $40 plugs at Garand Gear, I'm in.

I don't know this part, probably a great part - but i collect lugers and everytime I hear someone say - but the repro loading tool (looks like a small screwdriver), the repro is so cheap, I can buy 3 or 4 of them compared to a real one!

well, there is a reason one is better - and the other bends when I try to take out a stubborn screw from a grip...

Bought one of the Garand Gear plugs years ago when I first started, and its been sitting in my parts box since.
Shoot the proper M1 ammo and there will be no need for either gas plug.

I was always curious why the BM59 uses a ported gas plug similar to the ones made by Garand Gear. I took it one step further and drilled a port hole in mine similar to the mod done to the M14. Tamed my BM59's recoil and violent cycling without sacrificing reliability.

Also Garand Gear has spent a lot of time researching and testing the product. The 1/4" square drive is the better easy to tighten and loosen the gas plug. Myself, considering all the money I have spent in milsurps, another $20 won't kill me to get the what seems to be the better product.

Creedmoor Sports has the Schuster Overbored Gas Plug for M-1 Garands for $21.95. This is the non-adjustable model. You just put in on and shoot. It will also fit the M-5 bayonet which some other ones will not. I bought mine from them because of their relationship with CMP.

Not to start this thing all over again, but if you choose to use one, they work really well, I have had no problems using them on M-1 Garands both in 30.06 and .308. I don't use them all the time, but they work for me and come from a known manufacturer.

Please Note: Having a senior moment, to be fair, I forgot to say that I have bought and used the Garand Gear model as well, it worked just as well as the model sold by Creedmoor.

HTH.

With the Creedmoor Sports model, it is slightly different. As in alittle less open space than the Garandgear plug. Does this make any difference no idea.
