“CETME Black Widow .308”

Written on: 25/08/2011

I've heard all the bad things about these rifles, but the one I have has been flawless. I've used Spanish surplus, German surplus, American factory .308 and my own reloads and have yet to have any kind of failures. I've shot about 1000 rounds through it. I bought it August of 2003 for $368.00 out the door. I take this weapon with me hog hunting on foot. I hunt the Red river here in Texas and I've have had it wet, muddy and sandy and this rifle still keeps chugging. The only complaint is that it… Read Full Review

I just picked up one used at East Main trading in farmington nm Id say the price has could of been a little better but thats not the companys fault.For being used it dosent look bad at all.Shoots stright, for a 308 the kick/recoil isnt bad at all Id say my ak's is worse, huge muzzle flash all in all very happy with it. if you want a good solid accurate powerful weapon system thats not going to put you in the poor house this is your weapon… Read Full Review

“The Century Arms Black Widow Cetme Sporter .308 is a...”

Written on: 13/06/2009 by Evanb1 (1 review written)

The Century Arms Black Widow Cetme Sporter .308 is a blast to shoot and has - BY FAR - the LOWEST recoil of any .308 I ever fired as attested to by many I have invited to shoot it. My wife says it is about the loudest also, but I think a .223 is a lot harsher.

My CETME was previously owned and I bought it on the internet for $330 shipped a few years ago. It came with 5 mags, an additional set of furniture, a claw scope mount and a red dot scope. It has never failed to fire and functions very… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/05/2009

I have a Century Arms Cetme and am really pleased with it. It is totally functional, the lightest recoil this side of a .22 magnum and is a blast to shoot. I only wish ammo was less expensive. I have read horror stories about CETME's and understand the problems many are experiencing. But there again, there are riflemen and shooters. The CETME is easy to learn about and keep running smoothly.

I bought mine with two sets of furniture and two mags. I now have twenty + mags, four sets of… Read Full Review

For the most part there a good buy for a good ependable gun. Depedable, reliable, and reasonable. I have one and I love it. It handles good and suprizingly accurate. Before you buy one maks sure that the mag release works OK. Some times one comes rhrough with a funky mag well but if you have a dremel an litte tme tere eay to fix… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/11/2008 by timfife (1 review written)

I got my CETME a few weeks ago and I'm hooked. My buddy and I bore sighted with laser in shop and took it outside. We placed a 4" x 6" 1/4 inch steel plate on top of a palate. From the sitting position I aimed with the 200 yard app. at 50 yards away. My buddy Sean says something witty like, "there's no way your going to hit that from here" (we do regularly with our AR's." I should have bet him a few clips...First shot, straight through...twice! Second shot was dead center!!! Okay, it fell… Read Full Review

I have replaced all the furniture and installed a +2 roller set. My extractor spring was worn and eventually broke so I replaced that. That's it. Other than that It's just pure accessories added on(ie. bayonet, green dot, stanag mount, collapsable stock((m4 style)), removed the Century "muzzle Blast Enhancer" and replaced with a flash suppressor.

Favorite in my collection… Read Full Review

The centre is accurate, shots rapid fire very well, great sights out the box, operation of gun works well, smooth shotting. On the downside the round feed is a little ruff,cleaning of gun takes alot, balance of gun leads to the front. The Century Arms Black Widow is a good air rifle… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/02/2008

I bought the rifle to use primarily as a hunting rifle and because I like military rifles and am partial to the 7.62x51/.308 Win caliber. Having the delayed-blowback bolt design, recoil is kept to a minimum and is not unpleasant. I highly reccomend this type of rifle to anyone who is responsible enough to handle it… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/01/2008 by bmonninger (1 review written)

I first bought my rifle for around $429 as a original cetme sporter. I decided to try to improve the overall performance of the rifle. I installed a H&K military green stock set with the larger recoil spring assembly, H&K firing spring, firing pin, cocking assembly, rollers, bayonet lug, and a couple of other H&K parts. After I installed the new internal parts the rifle seemed to function better , as well as open and close more smoothly. I went out and fired 20 rounds at rapid fire and no jams… Read Full Review

I would recommend the rifle to anyone! I got mine when they were only $269! Now they are worth a lot more! As I said before, the rifle has been very reliable. I proved this one day when I took my neighbors kid shooting (Marine corp) and we put "500 bad Rounds" through it, (The ones you can get for about $90), And not one miss fired! The Cetme's bolt did get sticky but a little cleaning cleared that up!… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/08/2007 by hansfreitag (1 review written)

I can fire maybe one out of ten rounds, the main bolt will not slide into battery when it chambers a round. It locks up just fine when a round is not chambered. I tried using a fine lapping compound at first to polish out the inside of the receiver and that helped, also polished out many of the tool marks on the bolt. The result was a bolt that you could actually hear working better and smoother. However it still will not reliably chamber a round. I tried calling Century Arms and was told to… Read Full Review

I found this review very helpful because customer service is a great indication of the character and quality of the company- and how their guns perform.
