What is the difference between a CETME, PTR91 and other varients? I am looking to get a new rifle soon (bday will be the excuse to the wife) and considering one of those or a FAL. Where's the best place to get one?

Cetme=century/angry ape build which means that you've got a 50/50 chance of it working right(mine does not)
PTR= "professional" build that is going to work.

difference between CETME/PTR91?

About $500.00

From what I know (not much) the cetme's tend to be built on cheaper receivers and be more worn out (built from milsurp kits). As far as function and design, I'm pretty sure there are very few differences (other than sights) between g3, hk91, and cetme. But I could be wrong.

There are differences in the sights, in the trigger pack, and I think there is supposed to be a difference in the reciever although Century's CETME and G3 recievers are identical.

For more specifics I would ask over at:

I got lucky with my second CETME. My first one would not fire, took it back and traded it, and my second has worked like a charm. Very accurate as well as reliable.

You are taking a big chance on them though...

Asthetics/looks mainly. Cetmes can have issues with HK mags, all will feed but some Cetmes do not lock the mag in place, basicly the reciever can be slightly mis-sligned and HK mags will not stay in place. Important to know not all Cetmes are like this.

Hmm. Which would be a better buy, a CETME or AK?
