    No, most Cetmes have stamped steel receivers. However, if I remember correctly both the Stainless Steel receiver Cetmes and the stamped receiver Cetmes were made at both places. I am pretty sure that the stainless steel cast Cetmes from St. Albans were made using a limited # of NOS part kits plus the minimum # of 922r parts. All of the other Cetmes regardless of what type of receiver or where they were made were made using demilled parts kits and a minimum # of 922r parts.

    All of the Receivers made at St Albans were SS Cast. After that plant burnt down production was moved to Georgia and the final cast receiver Guns were finished off. Then the production started on the so called Black Widow Stamped receiver version on the CETME. That is the History as I understand it.

    to this Day I have never encountered a Century CETME that was marked St Albans that had a stamped receiver. If anyone has one lets see it.

    What is this that you speak of???
    I am aware of the following CAI CETME rifles:

    1. Limited Edition (500) in 2004 (serials are XXX);
    2. Limited Edition (500)(serials are in the C096XX);
    3. CETME (serials are below @ C10000);
    4. CENTURY SPORTER/CETME SPORTER (serials are above @ C26XXX)

    Yes, if the one in the photos you posted is yours then it is cast as I said in an earlier post. It should be a very nice rifle.

    Anyone know if the cast receivers will accept one of the buffers?

    Tony I don't track the SN. The last of the SS Cast CETME receivers were the Limited Edition (500) that were done at the Georgia Plant.
    After that run Century started with the Stamped receiver Black plastic stock version (Black Widow/Sporter). These were the sloppy Ground bolt worn part kits Guns.

    BTW the SN on my St Albans CETME is C019xx (1998/99)

    Stop worrying about what location means. Mine was an early gun, cast receiver and it was out of St. Albans. I think they may have still been using the cast receivers, after their move to Georgia VT. I am not sure, but I can dang sure tell the difference between a cast receiver and a stamped receiver. Don't care what the location says.

    The Great 308 is 100% correct.
