Not sure if this has already been posted, but looks like they are offering a couple more variants to go with the full size clone.

For the same price, you can get one of Zenith's new MP5's + 350 rounds of Zenith ammo. I'd rather have Zenith's trained MP5 armorer's than Century Monkeys any day of the week, lol.
Centurys are imported vs zeniths which will be us made…century arms has a good reputation of imported firearms…self builds not so much. People confuse this in the ak world as well

It baffles me that people are still confused about where the Century guns come from. The Century guns are the same ones made by MKE in Turkey that Zenith were and are no longer importing. These aren't new guns, the importer has just changed from Zenith to Century.

Zenith will be rolling out their own in-house line of roller-delayed firearms, so it will be interesting to see how they compare to the Turkish ones.

You're correct about the import. But Zenith Firearms reported hundreds of horribly out of spec MP5's being imported in from MKE, Turkey. It was so bad that Zenith sent MKE multiple complaints about how bad the imports were.

This is where having competent engineers come into play. Zenith had to fix these. With Turkey's ongoing political unrest, I highly doubt that MKE has recovered their once excellent machinists from back in 2010-2013. These lemons & warranty issues are going to end up with the Century monkeys. Yikes. 🍋🙈

The Century guns made in Turkey are now $1700. The quality is excellent. Zenith f#cked MKE, so MKE sent them f#cked up guns. The welds on my new Century/MKE are excellent, & the mags fit nice n tight. So who would buy a US made Zenith gun for $2400 when the MKE gun is $1700? GARY.

I agree. The market will tell but I don’t see paying a premium for the importer unless, like with HK USA, has warranty implications). I mean hear the manufacturer is MKE so not sure what difference it makes.

How you rationalize sending your money to Turkey is beyond me. As crazy as sending money to Pakistan. Only thing you need now is a North Korean HK clone.

I handed my money to the owner of the gun store who was born in NYC. I don’t give a rat’s ass where the money goes after that because it’s now his money. The MKE shoots excellent without a single FTE, or jam. The welds are excellent, & the mag does not rock in the mag well. By your thinking I shouldn’t buy a real HK because of all the Nazi death camps in WW2, but yet people run to buy VW’s BMW’s, & Mercedes every day. Should we boycott China, & Japan too? GARY

Both Germany and Japan are US allies of long standing and the regimes we fought there don’t exist anymore. So no, I don’t have a problem sending my money there.

Erdogan is in control now, and poisoning a formerly strong relationship with Turkey. China is a strategic competitor to the US, so no, I wouldn’t bolster their defense industries with my money.

So by my thinking, spend money with your friends and don’t send it to anyone who is hostile toward your country. Hopefully that is clear enough to be understood.

I did. I gave my $ to my friend who owns the gun store. Matter of fact, I’ll be seeing him in an hour to work at his booth at the West Palm Beach gun show. GARY.
