I've got a Polytech M14 and need to get some work done. Basically just replacing whatever the previous owners had done to install a muzzle brake and put a real one on. Anybody in the PNW work on them or do I have to send it off to Fulton Armory or some other place? Thanks,

Thanks for the info but according to the website, they do not work on Polytech M14's. I don't need anything too special, just fixing whatever the previous owners had done to get a muzzle brake installed and installing a different one.

The FFL I use has a manufacturer's license and his primary personal interest is .308 military rifles. He is in Renton - Blackwell Industries/Eric Berg. Google that and you will find him, or talk to him at the show next weekend in Puyallup.

I looked at Blackwell's web site and didn't see any thing on how long they've been in business, The 3 shop's I mentioned has been around for at least 20 to 30 years or better in the gunsmithing arena in western WA
LC450, I wasn't putting your options down, just giving the OP some options to pursue. I am not aware of how long Eric has been 'smithing and manufacturing (they are a manufacturing outfit, too). You can call and ask them if you want to make a heads-to-head comparison.

Agree with Ofadan, Ted Brown is #1. Most likely he doesn't work on that
particular one is there are all states of condition of manufacture. A friend had
one that was excellent, but ended up trading it for something else. His the era of all GI parts, and worked in all manners, excellently. Seen a couple with
soft receivers that had headspace and other problems with use. Most likely their are ways to over come defects like this by reheat treatment, but some just don't want to fool with them. I'm told that Ted builds some awsome
target ones and does or did some Garand work. Sorry I could not be of more help. Haven't seen a whole lot of Polys of late. but I know they are out there.
 
Gorgeous TIG weld on that! For anyone looking for someone to do M1A1 or M14 work, I also concur that Ted Brown in Jacksonville, OR is top notch... I drove down there once to buy an AR16 lower off of him... nice guy!


FYI- Bruce Campbell (star of Army of Darkness, etc.) has a place in Jacksonville, OR... that's REASON ENOUGH to make the drive to get parts and work done for your Zombie Killer right there!! :D
