I have a CETME rifle and was wondering if the G3 foregrip would fit on the CETME rifle.
My Century CETME now wears an HK forend. If yours came with the wooden forend you may need to slightly modify the forend to fit. If yours came with US made synthetic stocks the HK forend will fit. Remember the forend counts as a compliance part under 922r. If you take off the US forend, you must install a US made part to keep your parts count right.
Thermold magazines count as 3 US compliance parts (body, follower and floorplate)
That's good to know that it works. What's this that you mean about compliance parts? Is that something to do with having compliance with in order to sell the gun off later? Please explain to me, and/or refer me to a link about this. I would appreciate it.
Section 922r is the only remaining part of the old "Assault Weapon Ban". You can have no more than 10 imported parts on an "Assault Rifle". The builders of these rifles used parts that were imported and added a variety of US made parts to stay w/in the proper "parts count". As a general rule if you add an imported part where a US made part was, you have to make up for that somewhere.
This does not just apply to builders and dealers. It applies to possession. It is a Federal crime to possess a semi auto rifle that meets the criteria as an "Assault Rifle" that is comprised of 11 or more imported parts.
The next question is if you are goinig to prison for putting that nice German forend on your rifle. The answer is probably not. If you don't engage in behavior that brings you under the scrutiny of the Feds, they will likely never know. If you happen to be forced to use it in self defense, it will undoubtedly be siezed (temporarily) by local LE. If someone at that agency does not know the first thing about CETME rifles they might inquire with the friendly neighborhood BAT man. If he (or she) has a burr under the saddle blanket they might have a case to present to the US Attorney's office.
The reality is none of this is likely to happen (yet). There are many US made parts available from a variety of suppliers so staying in compliance is relatively easy.
For further explanation see militaryfirearm.com. There is a good FAQ sticky for the CETMEs.
