It's sure not an American built M14 receiver or bolt Populus.

I think is a Norinco Receiver et it's sure for bolt and other part ( gaz cylinder, stock ).
the marking M14 S.A is very crazy because there are not correspondence to Builder Chinese or other...

From the appearance of the heel markings and details of some of the parts, I would say you are right. It is Chinese origin. I have not seen a receiver marked in this way before, but it may be something imported to Europe that we don't get in the US.

Looks like a heavy walnut stock looks thick where it meets the hand guard. Stock liner screws may be loose they aren't supposed to stick out like that. One is missing

Stock looks like Chinese wood as well.
