Maybe it has been asked before and answered... and I apologize if I am repeating the question but do the Chinese still make the M14 receiver?

I would say yes. http://www.marstar.ca/dynamic/category.jsp?catid=75212 However, you can not buy one.

The Chinese no longer manufacture the M14/M305 receiver. According to one of the M14/M305 importers in Canada, who I have met and interviewed, Norinco informed him in December 2013 that it no longer has any M14/M305 receivers in inventory with which to build rifles.

Guess that puts Marstar out of the 14 biz. Also the Canadian ones will start going up in value.

I frequent the CGN board. I'm seeing more posts about importation of US made M14 type rifles - LRB, SA, Inc., James River Armory, etc.

Can anyone tell me my Polytech production date?

IDE USA SFLD MICH
Polytech China
Serial # 2136X
Chinese lotto: 3 7 10 2 10

Does anyone know what the production date is and what factory it was made at? If so, please explain how you deciphered the lotto and how you know what factory. Any help would be appreciated

I'm lost in the sauce on figuring mine out both are ide side stamp polytech m14s.
My first one that's barely a polytech anymore is sn 113xx
12 33 51 5.
My second one is sn 250xx
38 31 20 15

I think the second one is later but given sn sequence is no indication I'm at a loss. Anyone care to take a swing?
