Excellent price on the Steyr M40. I like mine a lot and paid considerably more for it because I bought right after they hit the shelves. I trust mine enough for it to be one of my house guns.

That is a kick ass price on the Cetme! Buy one while they are cheap.

Good prices, are the gunstore or pawn? Ice

These are gun store. The shops are CDNN and SOG. I thought these prices were pretty darn good. What about the G3 shorty? Is the CETME pretty much a shooter and not a collector being that it's Russian parts on a CIA receiver? I have a CIA FAL and I've been told it's just a shooter.

Have you picked up the styer before. I ask because I did once and would prefer to never do it again. It just felt wrong and wasn't as pointabe for me as other guns. The grip angle is different so if you are very used to something else this might not be the gun for you. As far as the CETME rifles I'm looking at either one of these or an FAL. I prefer the aluminium recievers than the thin sheet metal. Just my opinion.

So the aluminum receivers are built better or just personal preference?

most people dislike the aluminum receivers... they're big and clunky compared to the sheet metal. I have never fired an aluminum receiver Cetme or G3 but I'm sure they're just as functional as the steel ones... they just look damn ugly.
