I took a chance and purchased a Century R1A1 FAL and it has been rock solid. I put many rounds down range to get a comfort factor before I put any money into it. I've added a full spare parts kit and a DSA heavy duty scope mount. If the rifle is new the price is good. Mine was new with a new barrel. I had 2 guys who build their own FAL's go through this one before I purchased it because of Century's reputation.

Good luck.

Mine was kinda crude and a friend wanted it so I sold it and made a little money.
It worked fine but I don't miss it.

My new Century has been problem free.

OK, Enforcer, how much did you pay? Is the feedramp duobrow or unibrow?

If you paid less than $450., you got a great deal regardless of whatever issue's may need to be resolved.

Also, thats all L1A1/SLR ("inch") , except *probably* the receiver. (metric mags are cheaper)

Say enforcer22...WTF,,,you don't even have to refinish that one...so your saving money...LOL

I think it should be ok I just got done shooting a Century Arms one today at my Gun Club...He paid $675.00 for it and if needs a refinish job. Put 60 rounds of 168Grn SP through it Think it was Remington Ammo and no problem except for one of the mags..It needs some work trying to release it from the rifle.

It would have been a very good deal at $550. Good job!
