Default Price on "very good" polytech M-14S

Saw one in the store that looked nice but wanted to see what reasonable price is. Checked gunbroker, but only a couple there so not a great sample. Searched forums and most posts are a couple of years old so wanted to see if those prices were still good. They are asking $1250 OTD.

Depends on the parts. If all polytech with crappy stock then I would pass, check the prices for new SAI and others.
If it comes with a good stock, accessories and maybe some US parts then itís worth looking at.

The problem is, there's great receivers and other US-made current-productions parts available. JRA/Bula guns are $1500 +/- NIB, it costs a bit of money to get the Chinese gun up to that level.
I've owned Norinco and Poly-Tech M14/S rifles in the past (1990s, when they were cheap), mine always ended up with excess headspace - and many receivers were ruined by gunsmiths attempting to fit GI bolts to them. I sold mine, telling the buyers about the issue, and referring them to Ron Smith - who was knowledgeable and reputable in repairing them.
I know they still bring good money, I'm just not sure why they still do.

I buy "Tipo II" and BM59 parts
