... A Cetme to go along with their FAL? I got my cetme first, then my FAL - problem is I enjoy shooting both. At least they feed from the same ammo. Only problem was last range trip I couldn't figure out if my cetme or my fal was the one denting brass (some brass in the pile was dented some wasn't). Either way I feel both are fun guns to shoot and the muzzle brake that century put on the cetme will definitely clear the person away from the next spot over. :rockin:

I don't have either. I sure have been thinking about getting one of the Cetme's with the Stainless Steel receiver. The only reason I'm thinking aout the Cetme is because they are a little cheaper. How much do you guys think they'll be worth in lets say 2, 5, and 7 years? Do you think they'll double in prices?

IMHO, it's hard to say what they'll be worth, I think a lot will not only depend on September and the AWB, but also on future availability.

Just today, after I reassembled my FAL after reparking a few parts, I was thinking to myself that something was missing.... then I realized that I need another 308 rifle. Since I already have an FAL, and most of the parts needed to build another one, I thought a little variety would be prudent. I then realized that I hadn't built a CETME yet!

So the question arises, where can I get a CETME kit? What do they cost? What would a CETME build cost me after it's completed? I usually do the assembly work myself unless it involves machining. What websites should I frequent in order to become a true CETME guru?

One of my fellow shooters in our shooting club bought a CETME and the rear sight was canted so badly he couldn't zero it without a scope.

This is what cured me from wanting one of Century's CETME's.

I think it's common knowledge at this point that Century's guns are a waste of time and money.

Here are some for you to check out - http://www.cetmerifles.com/forum/index.php or
http://www.gunboards.com/forums/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=47

Both are interesting places to read. I have some others in my favorites folder, just have to find them. :)

From what I've heard about the century assembled Cetme's, all they do is make two small tack welds to hold the rear sight on. How accurate can this be?

I have 2-CETMEs and 3-FALs-both are great gun designs-though I perfer the FAL more. My CETMEs are CETME/G-3 hybrids with parts from both weapons-over 500rounds out of each both work fine-no problems.

The DSArms receivers are nice (at least the ones I have handled have been). They are like the cadillac of FAL receivers. The Imbel receivers are nice and under $200 from FAC (174?). The coonan receivers are nice too (and count as a US part).

I'll have to look at my century built cetme when I get it out next to look at the rear sight. As for accuracy, my cetme shoots great and is accurate enough. No complaints here. :)

You just have to go to the gunshows and hand pick one out of a pile of them and then you may get a good one, that is if you know how to inspect it.

I would never buy one I have not gotten to see first. I would not order one and expect to get a good one.

It all depends on WHAT you buy. I've heard a lot of horror stories about Century G3's and CETME's. I've got an L1A1 from them, and other than coming with the gas valve in the grenade position, no serious problems.
I've gotten other stuff from them, but only stuff they imported complete (RomAK 3).
