I was not 100% when I got mine, it works well for the $300 I paid.

I figured if I had issues I could always put it in the paper and sell it at a small loss

I was sceptical, but three buddies bought $300 CETMEs and they all worked out of the box, except one had to be lubed well.
I ordered one and it is very reliable, took about 20 rds. to loosen up.

The sight adjustment is a pain. I bit the bullet and bought a $12 front sight tool from TAPCO because every other method I tried to turn that front sight didn't work, and mine needed windage adjustment, whisch is also controlled by the front sight.

Good luck.

I have posted several times:

I have seen people write on this topic and have wondered what they were talking about. I have a CETME, my brother and a friend also have one and another friend has one of the new black rifles with no noisemaker on the end. These are all Century sheet metal receivers and other then hitting the mags with a dremmel they all work great.

We have (I know its bad) gone through around 15 boxes of Indian .308, boxes of tracers and many cases of S.B. and Australian. I have been very satisfied with the rifle and the price made even better.

For the money they have all been worth the $300 and change.

If you buy one inspect it very well, be prepared to do some "messing with it" and they do have a "break-in" time.
