Hello everyone. After staring at a Century Arms C93 on CTD for a couple of months and doing some extensive reading I finally decided to buy one when the spousal unit left town for a week (gotta have something to keep me warm at night and a new gun always seems to work). Every thing I read said "hit or miss" with any CA but when I contacted my FFL they said the supplier they use had been getting them good quality units and when he said he didn't have one but he could order it and it would be in in a day, I said YES!

Got it in and man this thing was clean; broke it down lubed it up and took it to the range. Super fun. I had one stove pipe out of 180 rounds shooting 100 5.56 American Eagle and 80 223, non branded; couldn't tell the difference between the two rounds and both grouped very well.

Congrats. What is your bolt gap? You should have checked it before and after you shot it.. and you should keep a log after every time you shoot it with the round count and bolt gap

I've read this exact post on many other threads:wink:

.019 last cleaning. If the weather clears I'm going to shoot another 100+ rounds this afternoon and recheck it.

Excellent. Keep an eye on it but just maybe you got a good one. The welding monkeys at Century may have been sober and not too hung over the morning your gun was welded :100000:

texheim,
if you did the research like you stated, then you are good to go & you know all you need to know about the "ins & outs" of these c93 rifles. Good luck with'er & enjoy!

Oooooh, that's funny!
It was probably the day before payday, no $ and the bar shut down their tab. Good things do happen!

congrats! yours is close to mine in the serial number range. my bolt gap has settled to .007. and has stayed there after 760rds. its accuracy is decent not a bad deal.

This photo is why I would never buy this gun. Look what they did to the receiver. What a piece of crap. And the kid whose friend works at Allied insisting Century made them build these guns this way, & insisting they build them with low headspace. Neither HK, JLD, PTR, or Vector builds their guns this way. Absolute junk. GARY N4KVE

Gary, I agree that weld is definatly sloppy. as far as the allied being made to build these lkie this I dont think thats true. its all about money. would like to see some production vs return i went through 10 of them. four of them went back the day after they arrived. bolt gap,tripple tree crooked and one that would not strip around from the mag. yes they are a crap shoot. .

I've wondered many times why some people weld up the trunnions and receivers like that. There is no need and it takes more time and material to do. Seems like a waste as well as making the area look like puke.

Honestly I don't YET consider my self a purist and the forend covers the craptastic weld job in that area so it doesn't bother me. Clawmount from hkparts.net should be in tomorrow along with the scope from CTD; so excited!:350:

I consider a claw mount an essential for optics but I won't settle, have to have a new German make. I do have one of those UTG mounts in my HK possibles box that I am going to use on a Century C93 range gun in the future but it's just going to be a range/training gun and plinker. Give us a long term review of how well it holds zero and how it fits your gun..

I can do that. I'm going to be doing some 'yote calling before this years breading season ends and we all know about crap not going 100% during hunts so I'll report back.

Yote hunting is very popular up here in the desert areas. May try it some time, I can use the pelts in a new part time business I have planned

and we're covered up in these guys
Dude, you need to pen off those feeders because you are only feeding the pigs and very soon your whitetails will go elsewhere. Pigs go through barbed wire like it is not even there! The deer can step over the pig panels and it keeps them out. They will clean you out Bro.

Oh yeah we KNOW. This is the first year we've used game cameras and it was brought to our attention after viewing the photos that we've been feeding pigs all year. We'll have a couple of eradication hunts and take steps to better protect our feeders. Plus pig hunting is fun.
