    Checking in from NC

    Found this site while trying to find information on Century built the CETME C308 and am glad I did. Basic Google searches were full of pages about drunken monkeys welding and problematic builds but also mentioned owners who were happy with their rifle. That left kind of a mixed feeling on whether or not I should purchase one for sale on another forum. But after reading the wealth of information on this forum and learning what to look for I was more comfortable making the purchase. All the items mentioned in the stickies of the CETME forum about checking the bolt gap, checking for signs of ground bolt heads and other pitfalls to look for put me at ease that I made a good deal. Rifle came with a number of mags, some ammo, a bayonet, the sheath and the cleaning kit even contained all the little parts including the little sectioned plastic tube of oil. Since I'm retired and have time on my hands I've also ordered a CETME C parts kit from Apex Gun parts after reading some of the threads on building kits, I'm not sure if it will remain a parts kit or I if I will take the leap and try to actually complete a build.

    Welcome, from Rowan Co.... via Pittsburgh.
    We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other. - John Adams, 2nd U.S. President -
