    My cetme came and I ended up having to send it back. I had to pay the return shiping fee too. First the carrier wouldn't seat against the bolt when you cycled it. I released the lever from all the way back too. I've read that the new receivers are sometimes tight and you have to work it a few times. Even after about 30 times it would seat at times and not at others. Also when I disassembled the bolt and carrier I found the firing pin broke in half. Sure hope the next one is better.

    what a difference

    Got my replacement Cetme in today and it was alot better. Finish, bore condition, furniture was all better. Even the wood was, it about matches in color. Best of all it went bang. And what a bang, I didn't realize how much louder it would be conpared to my SAR-1.

    Oh man, is it different! But isn't the recoil about the same? That's the tradeoff, turn the recoil into a deafening shockwave and make a 308 feel like a 7.62x39.
