I have several saws I am rebuilding and was wondering about quality of different Chinese brands.

I rebuilt a Jred 2171 with an aftermarket "big bore" kit from Bailey's, 2 years later still all is well. Bailey's had a security breach and my credit card got fraudulent charges on it, that wasn't cool but the parts seem decent.

P&C for husky have come way down in price. 346 and 55's are about $115, 371/372/372xtorq are all $170-200. those kinda prices it doesnt make sense to use cheap chinese parts

X2 It is not reasonable to expect OEM quality at aftermarket prices. The manufacturers spend millions on research and development, the offshore aftermarket shamelessly copies with inferior materials and manufacturing processes. I am not saying all aftermarket is bad, far from it, but generally we get what we pay for.

When I rebuilt mine, an OEM p&c WAS upwards of $300 if I remember right.

My 2 cents, ask around, post a wanted ad, for used OEM parts for what you need. There's lots of guys that hoard parts, and I'd take a used OEM cylinder or crank over an aftermarket one anyday.

I think the chinese counterfeit stuff was making a dent in sales and husky/stihl both recognized it because about 2 yrs ago they both seriously dropped some the P&C prices. odd thing is that husky never really dropped the piston prices, just the P&C prices while stihl dropped both then almost doubled the piston prices this spring.

 I Know the quality isn't an good as OEM. But if I have a saw that needs crank, cank bearings,seals,piston,and a cylinder I can either just trash it or put it together with cheap parts. Then when I come across OEM parts I can pick them up and swap them out. What I am asking is one company better that the rest. Are the more expensive China parts worth the extra money.

Can we  start a poll or ranking of them of best to worst. Personal experience not hear say please.

OEM for this guy , seen way to many aftermarket blow ups from other people for this old guy . Put in a cheap piston but the rest of the saw is fine then the cheap piston goes off like a bomb, now the cylinder, crankcase and piston is junk

For the price difference it doesn't really make sense to go AM unless its cosmetic "crush repair" parts or parts NLA from the dealer. A few possible exceptions I guess but for the most part that's the best way to go. Meteor made some good top end parts. Also in a lot of situations, used OEM cleaned  up cylinders with new pistons is a way better option that AM. Couple of places I would avoid AM completely....ignitions being one. Carbs being another. Oils pumps (Bar oil). Fuel lines, cranks for Husqvarna 372's.....LOL beginning to add up!

I had a similar question awhile back so I bought the cheapest big bore cylinder and piston I could find for my MS361. I know you asked about Husqy. I have cut probably 30 cord of wood with it and it seems to be great.
