My experience has been the opposite but may be the exception. I have a Century that works, shot a little low and to the left but I use a Trilux SUIT scope now and it works fairly well. I a DSA with a few problems such as occasionally fully chambering subsequent rounds (probably need time and use to break in?). Oddly enough, I have a couple Century CETMEs that never failed (yet). That said, I tend to shoot the PSLs and RPKs more these days (more consistent and cheaper ammo). Don't get me wrong, I like the FALs and I have had enough lemons from Century over the years (especially their M76s). I just am wary of any FAL assembler these days and would look for a Belgian pre-ban myself.
