Default Century Arms CETME .308

I have a Century Arms CETME .308 that I'm thinking about selling to fund a bolt action. Problem is I don't really know where to start price wise. I have no idea what this gun was worth pre-panic and realistically what would it go for now? It is in great shape as far as Century CETME's go. I have never even shot it. Also has a scope mounted on it. Anyone know what it's worth?

Already checked out Gun Broker. They seem to be around $750ish without a scope or mount. I have never sold on Gun Broker. Kinda trying to figure out a fair price for a local sale.

I sold one for 500.00 in pre panic days about the going rate. Selling now with no paper you should get more . Keep the scope for your bolt gun as they don't bring much more in the sale.

Given the current market, I'd think you could get 1000 for it.

Yeah, things are definitely crazy. It isn't even for sale yet and I've got a PM from a guy offering me $750 without even seeing it. He said he may go more when he see's it if it is in as good of shape as I say it is. Wish I hadn't sold my Bushmaster .308 with Nikon Monarch glass early last month. That thing is probably worth a cool million now

You aren't going to get $1000 unless it has nice original furniture and perfect bolt gap, or has $300+ in extras (which value around $150 used). Then you still have to pay gunbroker fees, FFL, etc...

yes, they are already dropping. There have been numerous complete ARs on the most inflated gun forum in the world (MGO) for $850 in the last couple days. The hysteria is fading lol.

Gun sold for $1000 in less than 24 hours. Time to start a bolt gun project.

Here's the deal. I love two stage triggers, Hogue over molded stocks and Nikon glass but I'm not a bolt gun guy so I am open to suggestions. Here are my thoughts. Savage .308 stainless, Accu trigger (kind of gives me that 2 stage feel in a weird way), Drop mag, Hogue over molded full bed stock, maybe a muzzle break (will decide after shooting without one), Nikon Monarch scope. I want a short, light weight rifle to use for hunting and target shooting.

The muzzle brake is not needed on a hunting rifle but if you want to shoot repeatly at the range its nice. The guys next to you won't like it .

That's what Matt at Williams was telling me. Apparently some guides won't let you use a brake because they are extremely loud. I'm gonna just play the break by ear (no pun intended). If I like the way it shoots without one that would be the best scenario by the sounds if it. I started shooting rifle at a young age with a .338 win mag. As you can imagine it taught me to flinch. I became very recoil sensitive. I have re-taught myself to shoot but I will be the first to admit anything I can do to keep that flinch from coming back sounds good to me.

I dont know why people do that to a new shooter thinking its funny . Once you get this rifle get out and shoot it . Shoot it once a week or more foe a while and you will loose that flinch.

I'm not new to shooting at all. Not being a braggart but I'm a pretty good shooter. There is story behind the flinch which has been gone for a while. I'm just new to bolt actions and as with anything new I tend to be nervous of the unknown. The last thing I want is to see the return of a flinch.

This was what I was refering to . I knew better than start my wife or young daughters off on a 3006 . I started them out small and they now trust me and will shoot anything I put in front of them.

The .308 is a fun round to shoot and is very mild in recoil. The more time you spend behind the trigger you will forget about the recoil.
