It seems everyone is out of CETME C receivers
Either complete or 80%.
Anybody have a receiver that I could buy or trade for?
Have done a couple of these rifles and believe this is a great therapy to keep me out of bars.
In all honesty I just like building them.
More fun than an AK.

Looking at the numbers -

Cetme C Parts kit - $100 (on sale)

New Barrel - $160 (maybe more)

Bent and welded receiver ($200 - $300 on GunBroker)

Misc parts - ?

Basic cost is about $500 with some shipping and a few other parts.

Is it worth it? What are complete rifles in average condition going for today?

It would be an interesting project, and a bit over my head honestly, but it seems to add-up pretty quickly.

After getting a bent and ready receiver.
I had a parts kit and compliance parts.
Take your time and measure and fit up everything that makes it work right.
Welding can be done with a MIG welder.
Making sure everything is tight and right.
I have not gotten out to the range to test it but all functions well by hand cycle with dummy ammo.
After that all I have to decide is the finish.
All said and done I have just over $475 in it.
