Does anyone have one of the .308 conversions that actually works decently?

I had one that I was lucky if it ran three rounds in a row without a failure to extract. I ran 70 rounds through it before I had enough and traded it off, I think the most it went with no problems was 5 rounds.

Buy the original 7.5 French. If you already have one in .308 and don't want to sell it there was a guy who used to make an adjustable gas system that supposedly fixed a lot of the problems.

A friend had one--the only ammo it would consistently work with was Indian 7.62 dated (IIRC) early nineties--USGI ball, etc would not
get thru a mag w/o problems.
