    Question CETME Build Questions

    Has anyone built a CETME ? If so, how are receivers to get ? Are they decent rifles ? Big question: are they easy to build by the home builder ?

    The Century CETME rifles are built on G3 receivers so it is do-able, the only real difference is the rear sight mount. Will require good welding skills as you are welding thin sheetmetal to both thin sheetmetal and a heavy steel trunnion.

    What's the best source of parts, who has the best kits & receivers, and so forth?

    Did you ever consider one of the STG kits? There were/are those that are out there that are practically new rather than a Cetme?

    If you are going through all the trouble of building one of these, I suggest the G3. It is a superior weapon to the CETME and the kits are generally in better shape. Receivers are at www.pof-usa.com

    IMHO

    How about U.S. compliance parts? I also have never seen new barrels for the Cetmes? I might order a Cetme tommorow & want to learn as much as possible tonight.

    The Cetme is a fairly easy build if you have sheet metal skills. But it is cheaper to buy a complete gun than it is to build one.
    Buy your US made AK-47 compliance parts here.
    Best price on US made AK parts! also $5 flat rate shipping .

    Bradrock, you don't want to use a replacement US made bbl for a compliance part on a Cetme/G3 build. The chamber fluting is critical for proper extraction and so far nobody but a gunsmith named Urbach has got it 100% right. He charges a lot for it too. The G3 FCG is easier to make semi and has easier to find compliance parts. JLD sells several compliance parts, but the special weapons/top notch furniture is nicer. They just never have them in stock.
