I'm looking for a .308 "fun" rifle and looking at three choices. So, should I buy the FAL Sporter, or the G3 Sporter (HK copy) from CenterfireSystems, or should I get the CETME from Century Arms?

Anything but cetme.

You should really take a look at the JLD PTR lineup.

The trigger is a little stiff(like the Cetme's and probably the G3's), but I believe they are the best copycat G3's (or HK91's actually) that you can buy.

I have 3 AR10s, a couple DSA FALs, a JLD PTR91, and a Century CETME. If I could only keep one, I'd keep one of the FALs. They're very well made, completely relaible (so far), absurdly easy to take down and clean, use cheap mags (unlike the AR10s), and they don't mangle the brass (unlike the HK/CETME types).

Are the centerfiresystem FAL's or G3's any good?

Im waiting for the Rock river LAR-10 .308 this summer. My only problem with it is its alittle less accurate than I was hoping 1.5" @ 100y I would like to improve that to .75-1" at 100y

What? Don't you WANT to spend twice as much for a DSA or JLD?

Sorry, I know nothing about the quality of the Centerfire products. The prices do look nice, though. Assuming they're competently put together on quality receivers, I'd go with the FAL. I just think it's a better design than the HK/CETME. I'm sure others would disagree.

I was thinking of getting a centerfiresystem's FAL, I mean you can't beat the price.

Are you going to reload for the .308? If so stay away from the g3 clones and the cetme.. They like to eat brass with there fluted chambers.
