CEN CETME SA SPTR 308 16.5 20
[RI1189-X]
$547.00
by Charles S Date Added: Thursday 12 May, 2011
The rifle arrived in what I would describe as "military surplus" shape similar to what most AKs look like. When I tried to shoot it right out of the box it turned into a bolt action rifle. For some reason the first round would fire and the second round would jam every time. The charging handle would also get stuck halfway and required tons of effort to pull back. I had trouble getting the mags to fit into the receiver as well. I took the rifle home and cleaned the heck out of it. It was really dirty and grimy on the inside, but I managed to get her nice and clean. The second time out I switched to a different magazine. I can say that the rifle ran like a champ. I shot about 80 rounds and zero failures. The shells eject violently and they look terrible for somebody who would want to reload them. The forearm started to "cook" from the heat of the barrel. I knew this would happen because there is no metal inside the forearm. That is just fine because I will pick up an H&K one surplus for cheap. This thing is FUN to shoot and I wish I had another $500 to spend on another one. It is fun to see a pop can go 30 feet straight up in the air. There is hardly any recoil or muzzle climb. All in all I am very happy with this purchase.
