Will HK91 mags work in my CETME rifle?

Well I had read that they are supposed to, Along with the G3 ones. On my copy of the Cetme (Century ) the G3 aluminum don't lock in, (nor do all my CEtme mags!) so I would say it should but depends on how your rifle is finished. I think after a close look I need to file down the inside of the mag release hole in the reciever so it seats in all the way. otherwise they do fit in just not lock. Edited to add my fix, the mag lock hole was Cut out of the stamped reciever a few moments with a file on the hole to square it up and everything was locking tight. Including the G3 aluminum mags..

On my early Century CETME (Cast Stainless Receiver) the alloy G3 mags work as well as my steel CETME mags.

I think I will give them a try. I have about 28 CETME mags, but the sqaure HK mags will give the rifle a slightly different look. My rifle is cast stainless receiver.

The HK mags 'should fit'. I say should fit because the Century recivers nearly all of them are built on are not always precisly made. The Mag wells have been known to be too long on more than a few occasions. The good news is that if you get them and they dont fit you can file off a little from the stops on the mag and that usualy fixes the problem. If you can get it to work TAPCO sells HK 91 20 rndrs for 3 bucks....you can't beat that with a stick! Side note, There is a really good deticated CETME board on gunboards.com with some serious cetme gods. If is about cetmes these guys know it. They have done all of the mods too. Nice bunch. JIM

I have some mid-60s issue G-3s that did NOT work with my Cetme. I must admit that the condition of the mags weren't up to snuff, explaining periodic feed jams, but outside of this it is a tight cram to seat the mags in the 1st place. My advice is avoid G-3s unless they are in top condition, or better yet avoid them altogether.
