I just received my "won" Ebay 044 piston and cylinder. This kit is new OEM. The piston and rings seemed normal, but the over-all cylinder quality looked a bit less than I'm accustomed to. I have always bought Mahle Stihl cylinder kits and they have always looked great. This was the plain Stihl branded cylinder and I swear a decent AM cylinder might look better overall. Casting looks rough and intake / exhaust openings look off-center, if that's possible. Will definitely only be buying the Mahle kits from now on. Picture maybe later, too disgusted and too late tonight. Just got off work and checked the mailbox. I'm sure it'll work fine, but good grief.
