I like how reliable these guns are once they are tuned up, but their ability to shoot comes with a price. You can’t reload the ammunition because of the way the chamber is made.
If you want to work on these guns, and if you own one your going to become a CETME gunsmith as most of them were rebuilt by Century Arms (also known as the factory filled with monkeys with sledgehammers) the place I got most of my parts was Apex Gun Parts another place I used was Robertrtg neither of these companies have a business relationship with beyond my buying parts from them. I just wanted to give you a place to go to get parts if you decide to work on one of these guns.
I really liked my CETME, I only sold it because I need to buy the contact truck so I could carry tools back and forth to the land.Cetme S
