Cetme-L

Just curious to know if anyone in the PU has one, and if so, what you think of it?
I have an oppurtunity to get one of the Marcolmar's if i want it. N.I.B. Spanish green with mini rail in front of the rear sight.



Just not sure about reliability?

CAI Build? The bolt gap is the most important safety check the shooter needs to be aware of. I got talked out of my CETME after I got it dialed in so I was an IDIOT and gave into a friend with deep pockets. The rifle for some unknown reason was a tack driver. So head on over to the military firearms channel and do the CETME stickies on Bolt and cocking handle setups. But long story short take a set of feeler gages with you and go down charge the weapon pull the crappy trigger, turn her over and you will see a crevice in the bolt assembly. It needs to accept .010". That is your life cycle of wear. as the roller locking trunion wears that gap closes to extreme you no longer achieve lock, the bolt stops on the back of the case. I know, you are like what did he just say? They are extremely reliable if they are correct, 10k rounds?
Adjuster and 40nascar like this.

No, new build by Marcolmar. Mixture of US and foriegn parts and section 922 compliant. They go over the whole rifle and rebuild it to like new. Its like a completely restored musclecar. Some things better than original. Im just unfamiliar with the platform. I hear its like an early predecessor to the HK 93. I'm just looking to get feedback from owners, their general impression and what ammo it likes, and what i can expect for accuracy. Inquiring mind wants to know.

The Germans developed the roller locking trunion in their machine guns the MG34 and 42. Then the Spanish Military (CETME) developed the rifle version and was copied by HK as the story goes. Or at least one internet expert or two. But if it's dialed in it will last you forever. But you need to check the bolt gap regardless of who built it. That is you're head space where the bolt locks.
