How long should I expect to wait if I order a polytech part online or is it better to call and order? Anybody got there # handy ? Is there somewhere else I can get original poly parts? Thanks for the info, Hammer Over

They're not accepting any telephone calls for technical assistance, product inquiries or warranty information. You have to e-mail them. Good luck getting a reply!

They don't list a phone number on their website.

Regards,

Is that the same place as www.polytechparts.com?
Link Posted: 2/5/2006 4:56:34 PM EDT
Yes it is the same place Q-gunner2. That's the reason I'm asking 'cause I emailed 'em a couple weeks ago and ain't never heard back. I'm about skeered to order? I was hoping that someone who orders from them regular would respond. Hammer...Over

I have ordered from them once before. It took about five days to get the goods. I believe they charge actually shipping IIRC. I would hessitate to order from them again. Hope it helps.

JCHammer,

It's like a member on the board here once said, "if a company doesn't respond to an e-mail when you're interested in purchasing an item, how responsive will they be if you have a problem?"

Polytech is alive and well. They had my m.o. in hand one day and it was 8 working days later when the order hit my porch. Everything, just as I had on my list was right there, packed nice,and that stuff just makes it like Christmas.Packing list, everything, right down to the muzzle break pins was there all nice and bagged. I'd say, I'm guessin, that they are operateing with very few employees and it takes a little more time. I'd give 'em a try. Get your part numbers and description on a list and do the plastic thing or send 'em a m.o. with your list. Patience is a virtue and a watched pot never boilsMadtechcool

I've ordered from them with no problem.

Also emailed them once and got a response.

As far as I know its just the old man and his wife running the business. Got my vented upper handguard for my wasr from them, good folks.

Same here. All the e-mails that I've sent have gotten a reply, maybe same day, maybe next day, but I did get a response every time. Always been Chloe[sp] that replys. At least they don't do the ripoff deal on shipping like most places. Anything $200.00 or less-$7.00 to ship. Can't be beat. At least it's one mom and pop business that Wally World hasn't shut down. Gotta keep 'em goin' guys. At least they try. As for phone calls, it's a bitch to try and work when that damn phone is ringin' off the hook.Madtechcool

Does Polytechparts gets new parts in from China, or are they selling whats left in stock?

I believe they are selling what left. I think that it was part of the favored nation agreement China and the US signed in the mid 90s that military weapons and acessories could no longer be imported from China.

I've done 3 orders, all original Chinese parts. Arrived in a timely manner, last order was over the holidays, took 2 weeks. I'll order again as need arises.

I guess I'll have to try again!
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 1:27:14 PM EDT
Ok, for those of you who want to know. Received my small order yesterday, Sat. 2-18-06 that was submitted on 2-6-06. The order was correct and was rec. 2 days after my card was billed. Basically you can expect a two week wait so if you are not in a hurry everythings good! IMO

Thanks for the update, JC.

My email inquiry concerened whether their FSB can accept a bayonet, and if the gas chamber will accept a cleaning rod. Still no repsonse. I'll try again, I don't want to roder the parts if thwey're not waht I want.

Uhhm, I don't think you will get a response because I think they are just responding to filling orders with a small or no crew. This was mentioned earlier by someone else. I emailed them 3 times with questions and ultimately I had to find out for myself through other sources and then just put the order in for what I needed. Good luck and let us know. Hammer over

I just got my ventilated handguard from them.
Delivery was short but then I only live a little ways from them.
Cloe said they just got back from the SHOT show so that may
explain any delay

Just shortened up the ventilated guard to put on my AMD,
Looks Kewl!!
Now that I know where they are I can order and pick up there
as I work only a block away.
They are in the Fulton Industrial Area of Atlanta.

The Polytech barrel assys. are brand new barrels, gas block with cleaning rod loop, fsb that has the catch for the rod. The barrels have no gas holes drilled, nothing has been drilled and pinned in place. You don't get any pins and the gas block and fsb has pilot holes to drill the pin holes. The barrel is threaded in the normal 14x1lh thread with a muzzle protector screwed on it. At the price that they are, they're worth buying one just for the parts.Madtechcool
