Is $1k too much to pay for Armscorp M14 NM?

It's used, but from what I can tell, it's in excellent shape.

Should I jump on it?

I am ignorant of pricing for such a beast, but I did view your topic.

It is not easy to reply......the price sounds OK...but without more info on the rifle??????who can say. How many USGI parts? Is headspace OK? Bore condition? etc. etc.
People are hard pressed to answer for lack of information.

More info is needed. How many mags, is it a bone-stock USGI rifle, bedding, stock, sights, blah blah...

It's a consignment gun at a local shop, has one mag and nothing else.

Bore looks very clean.

As for USGI parts... Ok school me... which parts do I need to check and how?

Headspace - I don't have a way to check it, that I'm aware of. I'm not a gunsmith by any stretch of the imagination.

My impression, checking it out, is that it's in relatively new condition.

Sounds like a good deal.

If it has USGI parts (trigger group, bolt, op rod, barrel), $1000 is probably an decent price. A GOOD price with no USGI parts is probably arount $700. You can get a fairly new SA M1A for around 1K if you shop around.

When was the gun made, and approximately how many rounds has it shot thru the current barrel.

I'll see if I can find out more about it today. IF the guys at the gun shop are willing to play messenger between me and the owner who's got it on consignment at their store.

If they want to sell it, they will

I paid 1100.00 for a Nm Armscrop a few years back it was like new don't beleave it was ever fired. It had all USGI parts but the barrel was med. weight douglas match barrel the stock was bedded and it had all NM mods. Armscrop receiver's are marked nm or m21. Check it over good a while back Sarco was selling armscorp rifle's with a mix of chinese parts the bolt was about the only usgi part on them. Tha lower the serial number the better chance it is all gi.

Armscorp M14NM RECEIVER : $450
USGI parts kit: $700 Add approximately another $200 if all matching manufacturer.
Labor to assemble the rifle: $100

Just approx. figures for the individual parts, so yes, $1,000 is a very good price.

+1 I am in the middle of a build at the moment. If there are mostly USGi parts in it, jump on it
