No offense meant. I just don't think the platform is going to get a fair review here at SB.

I'd still prefer the PTR-91 GI over a CETME, but sometimes finances are a killer.
Sighs again...

This board is pretty roller lock friendly these days...thanks to my evil efforts.


The CETME however.... :headshake:

Awhile back I was looking at getting a new 308 rifle, here is the thread - http://www.survivalistboards.com/showthread.php?t=133522

I finally decided to order a DS Arms FAL in 308

One of the deciding factors was this review - http://tireironscorner.blogspot.com/2010/04/fn-fal-vs-hk91-vs-m1a.html

And these reviews at DS Arms - http://www.dsarms.com/magazine_articles.asp

When soldier of fortune magazine says the DS Arms FALis one of the best, I take that advice to heart - http://www.dsarms.com/pdf/FALFinestForm.pdf

While doing my research into a Century arms CETME, I found too many people with problems. They were talking about the barrel not being tuned right, the bolt being too short, slam fires,,,,,, just all kinds of stuff.

Indeed, but cheaper than your nice new DSA is a rifle called the "PTR91" which is the modern descendant of the CETME and HK G3, and it lacks all those problems.

It's not the CETME's fault that it's a terrible rifle today, it's Century's and the lack of newer parts.

CETMEs are being built using worn out parts from the late 1950s or early 60s, and with sup par receivers...

You can fix the vast majority of CETMEs, but why bother when the PTR is just around the corner? Of course, if the cetme was still $300 at the hardware store, eh, why not?

Got the Cetme and I must admit that I had some problems with it.
Mostly was the charging handle not really being too smooth, something on the weld.
I was just thinking of going the ptr-91 route.
The Cetme worked, ok, but could be better.
Also had some problems leaving the last round in the mag, maybe old mags.
