where are you in va id like to see if they will fit my cetme all so
Question - Can i use aluminum g3, or steel HK G3 mags in my CETME??
Answer : this is a complicated answer - the receivers that century uses to build there cetmes on were desinged from a g3 receiver, so theoretically, you can use any cetme, g3, or hk 91 magazine in them - HOWEVER, the receiver is made by people who sometimes make mistakes - if the hole for the magazine catch is drilled out of spec, or if the box shaped hole for the mag catch is machined out of spec (too high, or too low) then this can present a problem with getting certain mags to lock into your rifle, and work - it is of my opinion that these areas can be fixed by filing certain parts on the receiver, and also on the magazines, and all will fit, but you just have to buy the magazine, and see if it fits first - if it doesnt, try to see where it wont fit, and fix this area - buy a few magazines so you can get an average on these areas - 1 magazine alone cannot tell you if they will fit because some magazines are slightly bent, or tweaked, or dented, or well used. In a properly machined receiver, you can use all cetme, and g3 magazines of all sizes.
