I picked up my C93 from my FFL last week. I did a complete safety check and inspection on the weapon before accepting it. And I was very happy with the way it looked and handled. I took it home and field stripped it and cleaned it. There was quite a bit of oil that had to be wiped off. The 40rd mag that it came with fit snug but I had a 30rd steel mag, purchased from another site, that didn't fit so well. I loaded each mag with 25rds and went to the range for the first time. I used the 30rd mag first. I fired one round and had a failure to feed. I charged the rifle, again failure to feed. I fired a total of 5 rounds with with another FTF and a failure to extract. Now I'm not happy. Went to the 40rd mag. Fired one round and had a FTF, charged the rifle and ran thru the rest of the mag with no problem. Reloaded the 40rd mag with 25rds. Fired a few more rounds with both FTF and FTE. Also several of the cases were deformed after firing. I tried the 30rd mag again but had FTF. It fired one more round then the rifle jammed completely and I was unable to charge the handle. I had to field strip the rifle to clear the weapon. Now I'm done. I always bring extra weapons to the range so it wasn't a wasted trip. So now I'm in the process of sending the C93 to Century Arms for repair. I understand that these things happen and I'm sure I will like this weapon once it has been repaired properly.

After receiving my C93 from my FFL dealer, I cleaned the rifle well. Some of the parts had a heavy grease which was removed. Putting the bolt head back on was a little tricky but I managed. I was very impressed with the build quality and the parts were in excellent shape. A trip to the range and a hundred and fifty rounds through the C93 without any failure or issue of any kind. The rifle appears to be quite accurate to boot. Could not be happier with this rifle!

Picked this up from the FFL a few weeks back...gave it a quick wipe down and headed out to the range. Initial performance was not that great...had 5 FTE out of two full mags. I noticed the casing had thick cosmoline on them. Took the rifle home and fully stripped the rifle, right down to the locking rollers. After thoroughly cleaning the rifle (which was caked with thick grease) and lubing it back up, headed back to the range. This sucker ran flawless, no failures what so ever. Love this rifle.

As always, the transaction with Bud's was great with fast shipping. The C93 is a nice rifle. So far no problems loading or ejecting. Overall fit and finish was good. Keep in mind this is a used firearm with some new components. I bought this to shoot not look at and it shoots great. Mine did not come with a bayonet as others have indicated they received. One of the two supplied magazines was pretty banged up on the bottom but seems to load fine. I bought two Pro Mag magazines, model # HEC-A9 (http://www.promagindustries.com/product-p/hec-a9.htm) that work great in this rifle.

My local FFL, Vic, was outstanding as usual. Very fair pricing and a friendly guy who is a shooters friend.

Got the CIA C93 12 months ago.(for got to post this sooner)
Packaging: good box with plenty of padding. the two mags were both wrapped in paper. The knife was property secured and lubed to avoid rust.
The action had minor collection of dust which adhered to the lube. I could have put the box in long term storage without having to worry about applying any protective coating of lubricants.

Took it to the range, for a basic function check. Initially it had some FTE but this was just a matter of getting the parts worn in.
Recoil is very mild.
Stripped it and subjected it to a throughout cleaning and lubrication. Nothing stood out as being wrong....just not worn in yet.
Took it back out to the range. It would go through 2-3 rounds before FTE. Next mag it was 6-7 rounds before FTE.

How to speed up the breaking in period? I borrowed a registered select fire pack from one of the guys. slammed that puppy in there and rock and rolled.

Went through 120 rounds in fullauto, it ran smooth as butter. Probably the quickest, most fun way to break in the rifle, seeing it has a FA bolt.
After that, regardless of trigger-pack, it has been running without issue.
I think I am going to order another one while saving up for a registered triggerpack.
It is easy to control in FA, the steel sites work well.
I shot both brass and steel ammo without any issues.

I love the rollerback action and for $494.00 (on 6/11) it was a great buy, and addition to the HK style firearms collection.
