I would still like to get one, just not for $900, I can't justify that kind of money for anything that says century arms on the side of it.

$900.00?? Century has them listed at $615.00! My dealer charges a $15.00 transfer fee. I buy it, he receives it and does the paperwork. BTW, The receivers are made by a company other than Century. Simple stamped steel. Century adds the parts and barrels.
Do you have a PSL yet? Aim has them on the cheap!

DrGonzo:

That guy's rifle might have had some problems. If he has such a great rifle for the price, then he should not have been so frustrated with you, should he? A really good rifle for the price can sell in the right market location/conditions.

A guy on another website stated that he worked at Century and the worst problems they had were with the Hesse receiver CETMEs.

Complaints about many older CETMEs were so numerous on about seven websites, along with problems reloading the brass (economically), that I decided to be honest with myself and plan on getting an M-1 Garand from the CMP this winter/spring instead.
After standing in the E and F Company fox holes outside Bastogne, Belgium last spring on a guided tour, the motivation to buy The classic US semi-auto battle rifle began to grow on me.

Just beginning to learn reloading (no gear yet) combined with being still a bit of a novice with guns, the CETME situation appears to have far too many potential hang-ups, except for people quite experienced with .308 or other semi-auto 'battle rifles'.

I've been looking at cetme's for a few years now. I'll eventually get one. They can be very reliable and very easy to maintain. You just need to make sure the headspacing is within the somewhat tight tolerance needed. The toughest part about one is the cost of ammo these days.
