Well here goes,
i have had a cetme, wished i had it back. it shot fine for a battle rifle
those spanish ladies either give you a fit or treat you well.
had a garand it shot fine also, the only issue was the early clip ejection
and ammo m2ball will become harder to come by cmp seems to stock plenty
which i have found most older military firearms come with worn out or
ill fitted parts, but they are fun to work on and learn history from.
got an ar15 , i would love to have an A1 though..
they are easy to work on and or build, and shoot really well, i love peep sights also......
would love a FAL and M1A but cost too much right now
shot an AK tuff battle rifle but not too accurate, but gets the job done i guess....
i did however pick up a new mini14 due to the fact , i was built after the garand and m14 style, look a like and the newer one's shoot very well
2 to3 mom at 100 yards however not as tight as the AR15 but it looks darn cool..
found a svt40 at a gun show once and can kick my self for not getting it for 750.00 a few years back
and i like the SKS it is another tuff rifle , but the sights are not so good for me....
so i am just using this section cause no post yet
here are a few web sights to look at
