Shot my new Centry Cetme today.Out of 9 shots I had 7 failures to eject.On the last round the shell ejected,didnt feed the next round and now is locked up with the bolt in the forward position.Any suggestions on how to get the bolt unstuck so itll cycle?The charging handle will move about .25in and thats it.Also the shells that didnt eject have the neck crushed almost into a triangle shape.Any ideas what caused this?Thanks,45B10

I'm no expert but it sounds like your rifle's headspacing is way out of whack. As for getting the bolt back, simply put the cocking handle against a very strong & stable piece of wood & push on the butt. A workbench works good or maybe a tree stump.

Send the POS back to Century & make them fix it for you.

Beware CETME/G3 knockoffs; I recently bought a "brand new" G3 straight from Portugal through SOG. When I got it, it was a POS. The buttstock pins would not even come out with hammering, the rear sight drum was loose, and the "new" parts didn't look so new. I sent it back for a refund, didn't even try to fire it.
