    I received a C308 yesterday that I bought used from a guy on Gunbroker for $510 shipped. He said he put about 50 rounds through it and it worked well for him. Since I know very little about the Cetme I spent the time waiting for it to arrive reading many of the posts here. The first thing I did after taking it out of the box was measure the bolt gap and the cocking tube gap following Bladeworks excellent tutorial. I am quite pleased with the results. The bolt gap was .015 and the cocking tube gap was .030. I am now feeling that it should work well at the range and I am looking forward to trying it later this week after the big storm blows over.

    Overall the fit and finish on the rifle is good. There is no heat shield on the hand guard and I have read many posts about it getting very hot. I am debating making a sheet metal heat shield to put inside the plastic hand guard, or just replacing it with a wood one.

    I will report back after my range visit

    I finally went to the range last week. It was still a cold day but I really wanted to try shooting the rifle. I shot 30 rounds through it and had no problems. I put wood furniture on the rifle. I think it looks much better in wood. I checked with Century to find out if they could tell me the manufacture date of the rifle. I gave them the serial number and they were able to tell me the rifle was built on 8/2/2016. I am very pleased with my decision to buy this rifle.
    Here is a picture.

    I put a Nikon 3-9x40 scope on and went to the range to try it out last week. After sighting in the scope I put up a new target and fired my last six rounds on the new target. Here is the scoped rifle and the results. Cetme_left_scoped.jpg

    Look's like you got a good one. Great shooting and a good looking C308.

    Yes, great shooting and a good looking rifle!

    All you "need" now is a steel lower and a wood grip to finish it up.

    If he's shooting that well at 100 yards I wouldn't change a thing!

    Thanks gentlemen. I am very pleased with this rifle. I got a St. Albans cast receiver a few weeks ago and it is also a good shooter. I think I am getting hooked on the roller delayed rifles.
