Should You Buy a Century C308 Battle Rifle?



My experience with the Century C308, G3 CETME clone, has been varied, and in some cases disappointing. However, the gun has been reliable after a few fixes, and delivers the accuracy promised from the platform (which isn't much). Also, it's an historic design that's tons of fun to shoot.
