Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

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.
