For $50 that doesn't surprise me. I passed one up for $125 several months ago cuz I think they are ugly as sin,  but I used to think that about the sks once. Live and learn
I've given up caring what people think and do anymore....

Yeah, I get the dumbass award for the week on that carbine.  I realized, way too late, that I blew it off because when he said Hi Point I was hearing High Standard instead...like I said, dumbass.  But hopefully he'll open his closet one of these days and other good things will flow.

Old Outlaw, you get first pick based on how I screwed this one up, ok?

So, Polytech is an Importer? I thought they were a Chinese manufacturer? Plant 386 and all that? I'm confused, as always.

  I found this on Wikipedia, and as we all know, the internet just doesn't lie. :roll:

The Poly Technologies (Chinese: 保利科技有限公司), a subsidiary of China Poly Group Corporation, is a defense manufacturing company with headquarters in Beijing, China. The company deals with missiles and other military products. The company was founded by the Chinese People's Liberation Army in order to provide competition to China North Industries Corporation (Norinco).
 
As a traditional pillar industry of Poly Group Corp., international trading business is mainly undertaken by Poly Technologies Inc., both the predecessor of the Poly Group and a backbone enterprise of the Group. Founded in 1984, it is mainly engaged in the import and export business of general merchandise, special equipment and technology. Poly has established business relations with hundreds of enterprises and governmental organizations of nearly 100 countries and regions, including many world famous multinational corporations such as Boeing of the United States, Bombardier Inc. of Canada, Chevron - Texaco of the United States, Benz of Germany, Ferrari of Italy, State Corporation 'Rosoboronexport' and Japanese Sagawa Logistic Co., Ltd. It has also established cooperative relations with domestic government departments and many noted companies.
 
For the past 20 years since its establishment, it has imported large quantities of advanced equipment and technology for the country and the army, and has exported a large amount of merchandise for civilian use, defense equipment, and logistics supplies. It has made contributions to developing the Chinese economy and modernization of defense, winning commendations from government and army leaders many times. The company accumulated trading volume exceeded tens of billions of US dollars, ranking 63 among the top 500 foreign trade enterprises in China, published by the Chinese Ministry of Commerce in year 2005.

I was going to post;  Poly Tech

I have a norinco m14s (m14) and there is a Poly Tech m14 also.  Poly Tech is a military manufacturer and norinco is a civilian manufactyurer.  "Norinco sports"

BigBill;
 
  Have you been able to compare your Norinco M14 with a Poly Tech M14? Are there any noticeable differences between the two? I'd heard that some folks weren't happy with the quality of their Chinese M14's while others were well satisfied with theirs. (Quality of the steel, hardness, fitting) I wonder if it was just the difference of Norinco vs. Poly Tech? It would certainly make sense as to the difference between the Norinco AK47's and the Poly Tech AK47's.

  I personally have had good experiences with the Norinco Model Of The 1911A1 .45acp pistols. All parts interchange with the 1911's (I think the grip screw nut that screws into the frame is a different thread) but other than that, it's all good. I put in a one-piece Wilson guide rod and spring set, Wilson recoil buffers, and Pachmayer Rosewood Grips, and they make great shooters. Look good too. Were any of the .45 pistols made by Poly Tech?

My norinco M14s is in new condition.  I found out that some of the first production ones used USGI parts.  My trigger group is numbered USGI.  I found this out on the m14 site.  I may get a poly tech m14 soon too.  I like everything being forged and the chrome lined bore plus mine was under $400 with some free trades that i had. My very first norinco sks is awesome so i purchased a norinco 1911.  After doing all the fitting with a new barrel and national match barrel bushing she shoots one clover leaf per 8rd mag.  even with the normal loose fitting slide too.  My norc 1911 is one of my best 1911's so far.The grip screws are metric in the norc.  I have two chinese norinco sports tokarev's, one in 7,62x25 and the other in 9mm luger.  Both are in there orginal boxes still unfired.
