Century Arms (H&K) G3 Black .308
they want about $450 or so for it. what do you think? does this century arms make a good rifle?
i just want it to shoot around the house and have some fun!
A friend of mine has one, and when he got it, he had to replace the bolt rollers to get a good headspace, and it was in a BAD need of cleaning. Once the headspace was fixed and it got cleaned up, it shot to point of aim and has gone BANG every time he's pulled the trigger. When I shot it, the first thing I noticed was how effective the muzzle brake is in reducing recoil (His came with it). Once I concentrated on what I was doing, though, I made the second of my greatest "discoveries" about it; the trigger is absolutely AWFUL! A long, gritty, heavy pull, with a very "mushy" feel to it. A Target rifle, it ain't. So far, though, his has been reliable, decently accurate (once you get past that damned trigger), and easy on the shoulder, if you want to spend all day shooting it.
