I can tell you this -- The Chinese used to make a knockoff of the Springfield M1A (among others) that was notorious for blowing up. The metalurgy was no good, the manufacturing tolerences were horrible, the assembly was shoddy and they were too light to make a good anchor. They were so bad, Custom gun shops could not make them right and many refused to work on them for fear of liablity. Otherwise they were great rifles.
A Chinese made anchor might be serviceable but who knows with the crummy metalurgy exported from China in the past not to mention all the good political reasons to choose another brand.
