Armscorp USA M14 - how did I do?

Just picked up an Armscorp USA semi-auto M14 from my local dealer (I bought it on Auction Arms.)

[img]http://usera.imagecave.com/gman552/ArmscorpM1A02B.jpg[/img]

Receiver heel: U.S. RIFLE 7.62 MM M14 NM
Right side of receiver: ARMSCORP USA, BALTIMORE MD
Serial number: 100xx (made in 1992 or 1993?)
Bolt: TRW
Barrel: SAK
Operating Rod: 66118 (Winchester?)
Trigger Housing: 66118 (Winchester?)

Standard (not NM) rear and front sights, despite the "NM" marking.

Stock looks like birch, with DAS stamp on left side and faint "P" on pistol grip. Solid plastic handguard.

One 20-rd magazine came with the rifle (light gray Parkerizing, no manufacturer code on spine) - is this a Taiwanese or Chicom mag?

Price was $1200 - how'd I do?

Thanks for the kind words

I e-mailed Armscorp USA yesterday about the manufacturing date, and received a reply today:

Hiya [gman552],

All I can tell you is that the receiver was made prior to 1992. The manufacturer was Armscorp America, the predecessor company to Armscorp USA. Unfortunately, all the records for Armscorp America were lost.

Odds are we did not build the rifle. Our primary business is receivers, people buy the receivers and build their own rifles. We have built very few complete rifles.

Congrats on your purchase.

Very kind of him to reply so quickly, but I'm not sure about his information, seeing that the receiver is marked "Armscorp USA", and the Armscorp "born on" database shows serial #10451 was manufactured in April 1993.
