Ciener AK .22 conversion kit

I have an opportunity to pick one of the Ciener AK .22 conversion kits brand new in the box for $100. Are these kits problematic or is this a good buy? Would most likely go in a Norinco MAK.

extremely problematic

The main issue was the rather wide variation in tolerances
chatting up JAC years ago at KCR he indicated the kit had been designed around Chinese Poly Tech 7.62mm Rifles
They could be "tuned" to work in others but the reliability was never good compared to the AR & Mini14 kits which generally work as advertised
The issues and level of returns were serious enough Ceiner ceased production years ago.

People get pretty crazy regarding these AK kits until they try to use them
