  1. The M14
    I just got my first M14 - a new-old-stock Polytech in factory plastic and cosmoline. I'm not even remotely close to being a gunsmith (and don't want to learn on a non-standard rifle with a hard-to-replace receiver) and before I go to the range I want to make sure that it's in proper working...
  2. The M14
    Well I’ve always wanted an M14 type rifle but my buddy having multiple issues with his M1A a few years ago just really turned me off to the idea. Recently I started looking again and came across this nos Polytech. It even had the box and sling but the box was thrown out because it was trashed. I...
  3. New Member Introductions
    Hello! I'm fairly new here and more a historian than a target shooter (maybe because I'm not very good at it) and I hoped, in joining this forum, to learn more about the platform; it's applications, history, variants, trials, use in conflicts, etc. etc. Thank you for having me!
  4. Gunsmithing
    Hey everyone, I have a polytech m14s that I am in the process of scoping. I need to take off the stripper clip guide, but it does not want to come off. I am using a 3/32 punch and hammering from underneath the receiver but the roll pin won't come out. What am I doing wrong? Advice would be...
  5. New Member Introductions
    Afternoon All, I am a new member. I am from British Columbia Canada and after lots of lurking and research just bought my first chinese m14/m1a knockoff (polytech/Norinco m305). I served for 4 years as an infantry soldier before discharging in 2011 for another "service" career. I chose the m14...
  6. The M14
    I recently stumbled on a NIB pre-ban Polytech and I have a few questions: 1. I have an ART II Scope that uses a picitiney (sp?LOL) mount. I'm a military collector (AND shooter) so I would like my scope mount to be as military correct as possible. Actually Viet-Nam like for that scope. I've seen...

    Is a USGI or Springfield aftermarket trigger pack a direct swap with an IDE Polytech?
  8. The M14
    So I got me a little China Doll. IDE Polytech for 8 bills with 5 20rd mags (2 Korean NIW, 2 Chinese copies, and a junker from God knows where) and a 5 rd Springfield. Now I know about the "soft" bolt thing. These IDE's had better bolts, but the headspacing issues make shooting 308 commercial a...
  9. Modern M14
    I have been doing a lot of research in choosing a good stock for my Polytech m14s. Warbird is in the process of sending back my m14S and I should have it tomorrow. So the last item on the agenda is to get a good tactical stock. I was really close to buying a Sage EBR stock when I came upon the...
