Century Firearms, the famous monkeys with sledge hammers. I have owned a century firearm or two over the years. I post the manuals because I bet if you own one you will need it.
Century International Arms also known as century international or century firearms started after William Sucher, a typewriter repairman, took a Lee–Enfield rifle in trade against a typewriter he had repaired for a customer. Having no need for the rifle, he posted a newspaper classified ad to sell it and received more queries about the rifle than he had for typewriters. He then sought sources of surplus rifles that he could sell for a profit.
With his brother-in-law, Manny Weigensberg, Sucher made contacts in foreign countries for the importation of military surplus rifles and handguns and by the 1970s, Century became the single largest importer of firearms in the United States and Canada.
When sources of importable surplus firearms have become scarce, Century has manufactured their own firearms. The company has manufactured versions of the G3, L1A1, AK-47 and sporterized Mausers among others.
A lot of what they do is take guns in foreign countries, cut them up, import them as parts and then reassemble using enough American made parts to be within the law.
Unfortunately typewriter mechanics are not gunsmiths.
