Pending Photos of a CETME .308

I got a .308 for 850 bucks. Felt kind of pressured to get something in .30 cal semi-auto before any bans come down.


Next up is the semiauto handgun to go with it. Right now the front runner is a .40 cal S&W model 99 thats on sale at LGS for 400.

That is all...Until the next time I feel like spending foolish amounts of money...(most probably at the model train show this weekend...):guns:

    I've had two. See if you can find plastic furniture, as the wood gets so hot it's uncomfortable. Mine (one of mine) was VERY accurate. One wasn't, but was acceptable.

    I sold mine right before the panic started to finance my AR-10. It was a fun gun, but impossible to scope reliably.

    I have wanted one for a long time but at the prices they are now they are not worth it to me.

    Anyone got any thoughts on which brand of ammo the CETME likes? I'm probably get myself a full hit the fan loadout.
