The Century's are still a bit of a crap shoot. I got lucky, and got one that works well, without having to do more than cleaning and lubing. The CAI monkey that assembled mine put white grease on the non-contacting areas, and the recoil tube was filthy - made it gritty and hard to cycle. A good cleaning fixed that. My metal is good, but the butstock was used to pound tentpegs, and will need some TLC. CETME and HK magazines all fit good in mine, some have said that the mags may be tight (inserting/removing several times will loosen it up) or may be loose.
Accuracy in mine seems okay, though I haven't shot it on paper yet. Killed several milk jugs at 100 yards, though! Eighty or so rounds through it, without a hitch so far. I've been using Cavin .308 - saving my SA R1M1 7.62X51 for shooting on paper next weekend.
Mine is the stamped reciever. The cast SS recievers seem a bit better put together - also more expensive.
Addendum - 1-15-03
Put another eighty rounds through it, most on paper. It shoots a bit to the right - I need the front sight alignment tool - but some mighty tight groups!
Nary a hitch, four mags shot with perfect performance. Good CAI Monkeys! :wink:
It was a cold morning, and that hot barrel felt so good - "Happiness is a warm CETME!" :lol:
