    c93 century

    just picked up a c93 looks good,except the front sight is canted to the left and the bolt gap is .04, The thing looks good though. the safe mark is a white bullet in a square box, Fire is red bullet in square box, I e-mailed century to find out what they would do about the canted sight and bolt gap, waiting to hear from them. thank for listening and semper fi

    is the bolt gap (supposed to be) the same on c93's as it is on CETMES?

    not trying to rain on anybody's parade or anything, just trying to make sure.

    Yes, the gap is the same for 93/G3 or Cetme.

    Hope Century takes care of those issues for you. Wheres the pics? I'm thinking of getting one, but i think I'll wait and see if the issues are common on these newer ones.

    Excellent gun porn! It's a beauty.....you were very lucky in getting one with that lower. Mine came with a slightly different grip in that itis slightly narrower and has checkering a the top of the grip. I got one of the cleaning kits that fits in a Navy lower from H&K and it didn't fit in mine because of the narrow grip. It's a neat kit and I regret not being able to install it.....Semper Fi Marine!....Bill G

    c93

    I like the gun, may just try some plus roller and see how it shoots,got some wood coming for it, I haven't seen another lower like it, hell I spent 10 out of 20yrs as a 2111, and it has the paddle mag release. I just don't know how bad the canted sight afect it. hopefully not much, we'll see semper fi

    Woah, I didnt see the paddle mag release when I first saw this thread, nice find. Is it installed correctly? As in, the hole doesnt go through both receiver ears? If it does you have an illegal machine gun. Even a pinhole on both sides counts.

    Also it has a gray parkerized finish, most I have seen (including mine) have a black semi-gloss finish. My PTR had the parked finish, but its duracoated HK semigloss black now.
