CEN CETME SA SPTR 308 16.5 20
by steve w Date Added: Tuesday 21 September, 2010
Received the firearm in excellent condition. I took it to the range with 60 rounds of Brown Bear in the magazines, another 100 or so in boxes. I prefer the surplus aluminum G3 mags which can be had at around $1 each (you'll probably yield 9 for every 10 you buy at that price, but what the heck!). The rifle performed flawlessly with either the G3 or the included steel CENTME mags. Too much fun. Ended up going through all the ammo I brought when I took it out for its maiden voyage; I could not help myself. Sleek rifle with good quality composite furniture. I found the accuracy to be very good (more a limit of my talent than a limit on the rifle) with the open sights. I had laser-bore sighted the rifle, as delivered the sights were a touch low and to the left, but it put it where I was aiming at 50 yards (range limit).
The hand guard does get a bit hot; the surplus G3 hand guards are drop-in replacements and include an extra sheet metal heat reflector, so your mitts don't get so hot when you're running through those 20 round mags.
This rifle is a great deal, and offers serious .308 firepower at an excellent price. Buds, as always, did a good job of keeping me informed on the shipment, and my local FFL only charged $25 to take delivery. Buds was recommended by some friends, and I have done the same to others.
