Century Arms
Can someone tell me anything about Century Arms? Would you recommend this brand? I'm new to rifles and looking to buy one.

It depends on what rifle you are buying
what were you looking at?

As stated above, what are you looking at? Century is a solid company/ importer.

Some folks don't like them, but every gun I've ever shot/owned from them has been tight, consistent and reliable. Give them a shot.

Specifically I am looking at the WASR series of rifles. Know anything about them?

There are a few members w/ Wasr10's here. I have a Wasr2 that is 100% reliable and accurate.

How much did you pay for yours? What is the general price range
for them?

A buddy of mine picked up a WASR10 imported/modified by Century last year. It has been very reliable for him. I fed it a few boxes of rounds too & found it fun to shoot & reasonably accurate for plinking purposes. I have heard some people say to avoid using poly mags with the WASR10's, but his loves the poly mags. I can't say for sure how much he paid, but it was AROUND $500 at a gun show. I say around, because he said it was comparable to what i paid for my XD45.

He did change out the wood furniture for some plastic furniture with mounting rails & an extendable buttstock.

edit * My buddy did make the mistake of ordering the tapco buttstock for a "milled receiver". I tried briefly to explain, but some people don't listen well. He did get it to fit, after some serious filing. He later replaced it with the MUCH better fitting "stamped receiver" model. Yes, I LOL'd.

I've had mine for 4 years, $269.00. They are in the $450.00+ range now.
One of the great parts about the Wasr2 is it is chambered for 5.45x39 which is about $145.00 per 1080 round can or $245 for a 2160 round case. I still have cans that I paid $108.00 for, cases were $205.00. Copes does flat rate shipping at times. $7.95 no matter, 1 can or 10 cases. The Wasr2 is also chrome lined.
