I am new to this forum and felt the need to point out that Century's manual for the CETME is a bit funny. If one looks closely at the photo the magazine is inserted backwards. This makes me think about the QC folk there. How does one print a manual, take a photo and does not notice this before printing? I really just needed to point this out to someone, hopefully the person who took the photo is a member and reads this. Anyway, I own a century CETME and it works well. I have learned a great deal from this forum so far and wanted to thank all the members who give their input on this rifle. I also wonder if the Century Employee who inserted the magazine in that rifle also builds them there too.
