    broke on first shot. no joke. it looks to be a hobbled together battle rifle. using spare parts, built in the garage. if this is what you want, then its your firearm

    This rifle is well worth the money. Based on other reviews, I was not expecting the level of quality that I found. The plastic furniture is new. The action is smooth with a solid lock up. I ran 50 rounds of 308 wincheste...r fmj through it with no problems. The iron sights and pic rail are skillfully welded, etc. The bore looks a little dark, but the rifle shoots straight. The trigger is fairly heavy, but usable. It will send a lot of lead pretty much to the same place in a hurry. If you remember the price that you paid you should be satisfied. It is a mistake to compare this rifle directly to those costing several times as much. more

    Buyers, You get what you pay for. Save your $$ and buy a quality AR10 or similar. Don't waste your time or on these. I've purchased a few century products, skip this one! I saw these for sale Fall 2018 but had originally... heard about them from a online video review a couple years ago and heard great things. The video reviewer must've received a flawless rifle or Century has changed the parts for complete garbage because the rifle I received was junk. I can't pull the bolt back without wrestling and wiggling and twisting the little handle with all my strength. If I'm lucky (before my hands hurt) it'll hit a sweet spot and the bolt will go back. The front sight is off a few degrees to the left and are permanently welded. You can just see extremely shoddy welds all around the rifle, it looks like they spray painted a bunch of welded metal scrap. The craftsmanship is terrible. The top rail is literally a piece of picatinny tack welded in 4 places to the top of the receiver, if the permanent iron sights are off kilter I highly doubt the top rail was slapped on with care. The rear sight has 3 peep options and 1 open which spin loosely on a push pin that feels like it's gonna fall out. The rear sight is welded onto a hunk of metal. The two 20 round magazines are coated in cosmoline. After completely disassembling the rifle, cleaning, and re-lubing, I noticed a LOT of rust spots throughout the parts. After washing them you can tell they greased them up well enough to hide the poor quality. The muzzle break is literally where you can see they hacked off the end of the barrel and welded a threaded adapter to the end of a pipe. Two positive thoughts. I shot about 100 rounds of tulammo .308 without any miss fires or failure to feed. BUT, I had to struggle with the stupid bolt and it took about 2-4 minutes to get the rifle charged. The second is you can throw a scope on the rifle (assuming the picatinny rail is somewhat level) and ignore the iron sights. I do not recommend the C308. This rifle does not hit the price point of other .308 semi-autos, and you will probably be disappointed. more

    Ordering process with Buds went smooth as always. As for the rifle not as much. Gun would not cycle rounds in chamber no matter if it was steel or brass casing. Tried three different magazines and still had failure to fe...ed. After contacting Century Arms with the issue I was told to return to them and it would 4 to 6 weeks for repairs. Not very happy. more

    REALLY NICE SHOOTING BATTLE RIFLE. I WANTED SOMETHING BIGGER THAN 223/556 TO REACH OUT PAST 100 YARDS WITH NO PROBLEM. I HAVE A NIKON BDC 6X9 SCOPE ON IT. VERY ACCURATE. BOUGHT A RECOIL PAD FOR IT THAT MAKES IT SHOOT SOF...TER. I'D BUY ONE BEFORE THEY ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE AT ANY PRICE. more

    Overall rifle is in good shape, the charing tube was a little out of shape, nothing that a few seconds of work with pliers could not fix. Being a pain to charge, the extra rubbing didn't help, 3 minutes later, much bette...r. I fed it some 1987 Malaysia produced ammo, it ate it perfectly, slung the cases in low earth orbit like a G3 would, while marking them with the HK fluted chamber markings. The plastic bits were clean, pretty good shape. Over all a good buy for classic milsurp rifle. Bud's service was FAST, it always has been. If i ever had a question, they were friendly and very helpful. Also one of my go to merchants. Can't wait for my reserved C93 to be sent. I'll have the mixed up family, MP5 (POF), C93 and C308. Thanks Bud's for a good deal on a nice firearm. more

    Firearm came in over a week after ordering. At first glance it is really nice. Took it apart to inspect and this thing was filthy. Was parts weelre caked in carbon. Plastic furniture isn't even of good quality. Seems rea...lly fragile and weak. I replaced it with Cetme wood. Much better. Great rifle. more

    The C308 is more than I'd hoped for. It runs well and is more accurate than I am. The recoil is significantly lighter than my bolt action 30 06 and the C308 is great fun and cheap to shoot with surplus ammo.

    Got the C308 through layaway, which is a great idea of Bud's. The rifle was in excellent condition and came with x2 20 round mags and x1 5 round mag. Took it out to the range and ran some tula steel ammo and some Remingt...on brass through it. This rifle fired beautifully! 120 rounds without one problem. It was incredibly accurate as well. A lot of people were complaining about the welds on the picatinny rail but mine looks very professionally done. The trigger seemed to be another issue with some, but I guess I got lucky with this too. My trigger pull is smooth. I wouldn't call it a hair trigger but it doesn't take much to fire it. All in all, a great firearm and I'm very glad I purchased it. Bud's was excellent with the shipping process. Got my rifle in 3 days. more

    Shipping was superb fast as can be. Guns is solid, put 100 rounds Thru it, wolf steel case had issues at first from one mag tried second mag and worked flawless. Could have done with out the good that mags are stored in,... but was water with degreeser got it off. All and all five out of five all around. more

    So far, so good! one range session in, and the C308 performed quite well. Fired 20rounds Tulamo FMJ steel case from the five rnd mag, cleaning the barrel after each volley (break in procedures from the manual). After tha...t we loaded up the two 20 rnd mags and let loose. The only issue was the first round of the second mag did not fire..apparently the firing pin did not strike, the other 19 had no issue. Loaded up one more 20 round and sighted the scope in at 100yrds. 3" grouping at 100yrds laying on the ground with my back pack as a rest. Planning another range session in a few weeks with an actual bench and rest. Groups should tighten up a bit. more

    For the price, still pretty happy, BUT the rear sight is totally worthless. It will not rotate without taking something like paperclips, using them to push in the little bearings through the witness holes (from both side...s) then getting a second pair of hands to rotate the sight. Once that is done, the sight still has a fairly significant amount of wobble that leads me to believe getting it to retain zero would be completely impossible. I'm going to mount an optic anyway, so not a deal breaker, but pretty shoddy stuff from Century. more

    Nothing fancy; this is a workhorse. Cycling the action out of the box required considerable force. Finish is a little rough but everything works as advertised. I've only put one box of ammo through it and I haven't sight...ed it in yet. The clips sent with it are surplus but they work. Aftermarket clips are available but i haven't used the new aluminum ones I ordered yet. Disassembly goes according to the instructions but I found reassembly a challenge because the parts fit so tightly. Overall, I'm pleased and i'm planning to use it hog hunting. more

    I was looking for a larger caliber long gun but due too recent purchases , had to watch the budget. Saw the C 308 and read the reviews on the web and figured that I couldn't beat the price.. Got the gun and its become my... new favorite in my collection. First time at the range and no issues and almost no recoil. 'couldn't beat Bud's price and will be ordering my next item from them. more

    As always Bud's is top notch in all regards, now to the rifle review. I, as everyone else had seen the reviews on Century Arms products, but after doing some research decided to order a C308. I'm glad that I did. Side by... side against my PTR rifle I can see a few cosmetic differences but nothing to worry about. It is a battle rifle and not a safe queen so performance is what I care about. Perform it does indeed, a couple of light strikes aside this rifle shoots well and accurately. I have run several different types of ammo through it and it just keeps going strong. I recommend it. more

    After hearing some negative things about Century arms ; I was a little hesitant to buy this rifle. After receiving, and firing the rifle; I’m extremely happy that I did. This thing is a blast to shoot. Trigger is a lit...tle heavy, but not as heavy as some reviews make it out to be. I’ve only got about 100 rounds through it, but haven’t had any failures so far. The magazines that I received with it were in great shape, but were obviously surplus stuff. I’m really happy with this thing. more

    Great rifle great price shoots very smooth not much kick is easy on the shoulder. I've fired over 300 rounds through mines and no issues so far. When it first arrived it was very hard to charge but once oiled and a few r...ounds through it charging became much smoother. Great rifle worth the purchase. more

    Always wanted a HK91. Researched the difference between the CA C308 vs. the PTR 308. I personally went with the CA C308 due to the greater interchangeability with standard HK/CEMTE parts. The rifle arrived clean and very... tight fitting, The charging handle is very hard to pull, hopefully this will loosen up a bit after use. I particularly like the addition of the Picatinny rail. I added a sight with ease. So far with a little over 100 rounds, the rifle has been 100{74bc31db897e7e83e741e1a9b27e63c42adc46284812a1bafe5050e74fbfd318} reliable, no jams or FTF. The welds are more prominent than the the PTR, but this is not an issue for me. So far, this purchase has been a very good, soft shooting 308. more

    Ehhhhh..... Well.....I like to try and give helpful and informative reviews, so here goes. First the good things.... this rifle shoots nicely. It was super stiff until I cleaned and oiled the action significantly. I have... put approx. 200 rounds thru this rifle with no hiccups so far. I have shot it cold, hot, slow and fast.... no problems. The bad thing(s) about this rifle, to me, are mostly cosmetic. The welds, (as mentioned in other reviews), aren't exactly top quality. I mean, they seem to be secure but they sure aren't pretty. The safety lever in particular seems to be just gob-welded on as an afterthought. Ugghhhh. And of course the reviews that say this rifle is loud are right on the mark. It is. No doubt. Sights are a little tough to dial in as the sight picture is rather large inside the rear round sight. But as far as being a fun-shooting and nostalgic-looking .308, it is a welcome addition to a collection. Much better than the CETME .308's from just a few years ago. Makes one heck of a hog gun. ;) more

    Glad I purchased it! Not a single problem at all. Loves to fling spent shells and eats up all types of ammo and cycles all the types of mags I have: steel and aluminum, Hk and Cetme. A big heavy hitting rifle not for the... faint of heart. Go .308 or go home! more

    It took 6 days to get it. I know the C308 comes from surplus parts but that has nothing to do with a front post a little of to the right. I wasn't going to put optics on this but it looks like now I will have to. The rif...le is not light, but it seems heavier than it is. I took it apart and clean it, nothing big just old gunk I assume from the rounds fired during testing. The bolt is a pain in the rear taking apart and putting it back, but doable.The C308 looks good for the price. I did not shoot it yet, but I will when I get a chance. The 2 twenty rounds magazines that came with it were disgusting, it seems they took them out of a grease barrel and dropped them inside the packaging box. This is the third time I have ordered from Buds and the first time they did not make me happy. I assume for the money paid its a good buy, I seen it out there in the outside market for $950. more

    While you can find it a bit cheaper if you search online, the no transfer fee thru your local Rural King makes up for it. I have ran three boxes through it so far and the only issue has been the screw on porting at the e...nd of the barrel working loose. Shoots great, I found no big issues with the trigger being to heavy/rough as mentioned in some reviews. It's a battle rifle, not a nail driver. It will however, hold decent enough groups for deer or coyote hunting if that's what you're looking for. Came with 1) 5 round and 2) 20 round mags. more

    As always, buds was great on the service/shipping end. The weapon itself appears to be well made and pretty solid. I have not taken mine to the range yet because the temps outside have yet to be above 0 since I got it so... I cant speak on performance just yet. I will say this, the sights on this are VERY tall and may have an effect on what optics you can and cant put on. I found a great scope at Cabelas on sale but due to its length and the height of the rear sight, it could not be used without removing the rear sight. Risers weren't an option either since the scope mounts already brought it up to its max elevation. I settled for a red dot instead. I cant wait to get this out to the range though. more

    Four months later I FINALLY made it out to the range. After 200 trouble-free rounds I obliterated the 8” black circle on my target using the iron sights at 100 yards.

    I received the rifle and the visual inspection went OK. I was surprised to find that the handle and other parts were made of poly. I suppose it will last several years but if you plan on firing the rifle allot, or consid...er that if accidentally dropped it may break, then think it over first. It still has a pretty serious cool factor in my book. It looks very mean. Mine came with 2 twenty and 1 five round magazines. The charging handle is on the left side of the receiver and function is moderately easy. The rear sight flips forward in a circular motion and you have different size ghost rings for various shooting situations. 4 positions total. I really like that. I have not fired the weapon yet, so based on that and the fact there was unexpected poly it will get 4 stars. If I went on pure looks of how ominous this thing is in real time, it would get 6 stars. It is the meanest looking rifle in my safe. more

    This is built from surplus Spanish parts and a new stock and barrel. The bolt on mine was pretty beat up, and I am not real happy with the purchase. If I had to do it over again, there is a completely new clone of the HK..., which is more expensive, and worth it. I paid $700 for this thing, and even at this lower price, I wish I had spent more and gotten an all new rifle. more

Bolt was pretty cruddy when I received it and I learned my lesson to better inspect prior to accepting. I am pretty sure this one was returned or had been fired for more than just a QA check.

    This rifle has been a great shooter. The muzzle breaker works really well but makes it a little too loud for me, so that might come off in the future.

    Rifle arrived in great shape. I tested the rifle with some South African surplus ammo I had laying around. The rifle ran great. The magazines for this rifle are real cheap. I think I paid about seventy dollars for twenty... magazines. The rifle is more accurate than I am so I will probably be making use of the scope rail on the top of the receiver. more

    I can't count the number of firearms I have purchased from Bud's and it has always been a great experience. The only time there was a snag they bent over backwards and fixed it. Now about the rifle. Very cool looking rif...le and not a lot of sloppiness in quality. Accuracy seems to be fairly good. I will know more as I get used to shooting it. Very pleased and considering another. more

    I took this gum to the range and put 200 down range. It's fairly accurate and I had so much fun shooting this gun. It definitely turned heads at the range.

    I don't think I have ever been more disappointed in a gun purchase. The wield job on top of the gun is atrocious. How could you even send this out like this? I paid over $700 for a completely jacked up gun. I would recom...mend to anyone buying from Century to ask for a photo of the gun. I personally will never buy from them again. Also, would like to say that Buds has been really amazing trying to make this right. Stellar customer service. more

    This is my 3rd purchase from buds and I would have to say they redeemed their selves after how long it took for me to get my last purchase which out of 4 guns only one took a bit to get through processing. This rifle was... went through processing and shipping very fast. The C308 that I have received was very clean not a spot of rust or anything bad. Although I still pulled it apart to check everything the only thing I would have to say I had a little problem with getting the bolt and carrier back into the receiver, nothing wrong with the gun or anything just I am so used to ak47s and the c308 is very simple design it just took me a little bit get it right. I have ran both brass and steel ammo through it and both cycle great. The brass does come out dented and probably about 20 feet away but so reloading probably isn't a option with the brass. However overall I love this gun if I had enough spare cash I would of picked up 2. more

    Great rifle. Got the chance to shoot it for the first time a few days ago. Ran between 200-300 rounds of perfecta and zqi through it without any problems. Thanks buds.

    This is a great rifle for the price. I took it out to the range today for the first time and fed 100x Tulammo steel cased .308 no problem. It ate that stuff up smoothly with no hiccups. One of my favorite guns I own.

    All I have to say is wow! Buy it now before they are gone, oops never mind they are already out of stock. The Century haters, uninformed at best, can keep hating, and I'll keep shooting my new 100{2b6531003de7dca97d8fa68...c874b2b6c139df89967e6d91f05ad9884335e8373} reliable HK clone and grinning ear to ear. Is is the best value 308 battle rifle ever! Accurate and reliable, it's 100{2b6531003de7dca97d8fa68c874b2b6c139df89967e6d91f05ad9884335e8373} after 300 rounds and shoots around 2 MOA for me scoped with a Nightforce NSX 2.5-10x42 scope in a Larue SPR 104 QD mount. The 100 meter aperture is pretty weak, but the 200, 300 and 400 are money. I wish I had bought two of these rifles! Century has come a long way. I've bought 3 Romanian WASR 10's and this C308 this year and all are very good quality, 100{2b6531003de7dca97d8fa68c874b2b6c139df89967e6d91f05ad9884335e8373} reliable weapons. Smart guys pay less for more, fools pay more for less... The C308 is a winner... And FUN to shoot too! more

    This rifle is the truth hands down. Buy one before they run out. This is the last of what Century purchased of Cetme at a fraction of the cost

    This rifle is awesome! I started to research it when I found out PTR was making the receivers and barrels for this rifle. I figured if a company with their experience in building a HK G3/91 clone was putting them togethe...r, this PTR with Century supplied surplus CETME parts, would be GTG. I was not wrong! This rifle is described as used but looks brand new from the outside. The furniture and finish is very nice. The bolt is a CETME surplus part and you can tell it is surplus and has some wear along with the rest of the internals. I cleaned some old cosmo out of the bolt cleaned everything else out and lubed it. I ran a patch down the bore and saw that its brand new with nice rifling. Put it back together and headed to the range where I shot 80 rounds of steel and 20 of brass. This rifle ran flawless with all the ammo and surplus mags I picked up. It ejects the brass like a champ about 20 feet to 2 o'clock. I was hitting steel at 200 meters and getting good enough groups at a 100 with the iron sights. I just finished putting on a new wide hand guard that did require modification. The surplus slim hand guard I picked up goes on with no mods, but I wanted the extra heft and heat protection the wide fore end offers. After a mag or two the OEM hand guard gets hot, it does not have a heatshield. I am going to now mount a 1 x 4 power scope and put some more rounds downrange with my new favorite rifle! more

    First of all thanks Bud's for layaway as I could not have purchased this weapon at this time without that feature. I was surprised that is was considered NEW but that's fine with me!! The gun is a really beautiful sight... to see-even my FFL dealer commented on how great it looked. Fit and finish were pristine. When I got home Friday I did not have much time so I took it out without my usual cleaning regimen. The 110 yard rear V sight is quite hard to pickup with my old eyes and I had a bit of trouble at first, but I was able to guesstimate my way thru some really decent patterns. main thing was that it was consistent and I put two mags downrange without a hitch. Friday night I outlined the edges of the V with white day-glo and it shoots better than I am capable of with open sights! After that I added a mid range 6X scope and that was when the fun really began!!!! Once zeroed in I was shooting quarter sized sets at 100 yards with ease. Notably, I am shooting some pretty old surplus 308 and it still shoots just beautifully. I am thrilled with this weapon and hope that the Century haters out there will take a look. Don't miss the boat on this great build!!! One other thing... I installed a surplus OD stock and foregrip. Foregrip popped right in but the buttstock took a fair bit of filing on the area where the buffer slides into the stock. Not really a big deal, took me about thirty minutes and I like the OD look. more

    Seriously badass! I did not realize it at the time, this being an impulse purchase, that this rifle is a German G3 battle rifle, semi auto version. The rifle is made from refurbished parts and new parts, I suppose to com...ply with foreign import laws. It had an incredible amount of lubricant on it. So I dutifully cleaned it. So off to the range! I loaded all three mags with 308 ammo. Interestingly enough the date of manufacture was 1981 for the mags which was the same year that I was in the army ☺ and trained with the Germans... Used iron sights, set to 2, for 200 meters. Fired 60 rounds with about .75 second between rounds. I was able to put most of the rounds center mass. No failure to feed or eject. Absolutely perfect. Amazing that it did not need any sight adjustment. The rifle has a muzzle brake / compensator. This definatly reduced recoil to negligible levels and minimized muzzle rise allowing me to fire with the .75 second follow ups allowing massive fire on target. My fellow shooters noted that it was LOUD. And it produced an impressive fire ball with every shot. Probably not the best choice in a night fire fight or if you want to remain concealed. The bad guys will know it was you for sure. The barrel gets very hot. It is a good idea for your support hand to have a glove. After 60 shots the barrel shroud was almost imposible to hold, it was so hot. So from now on I will use shooting gloves. This rifle is now my favorite and will be my go to weapon should the s**t hit the fan. As usual buds service was flawless. Two thumbs up. more

    This new CIA C308 is super badass!!!! Owning 2 Cetme 308's and a C93 5.56mm I already am partial to the HK Clones and this is just a damn nice addition if I don't say so myself! The welds and finish are better then the o...ld Cetme Battle Rifle by far. The built in Rail saves you at least $60 on the bracket for a scope which a 308 deserves. At 44 I can't see nearly how far this rifle can shoot accurately so I have ordered a nice 7.62 Nikon scope to dedicate to this Rifle. Now time to order as much 7.62 m80 ball that I can afford!! This Rifle is a great buy anywhere in the $600's. I got lucky and put one on lay away when they were only $610 so I am very happy with my purchase! Now time for my S&W 629 44mag! more
