I don't know nuttin' about no CETME's.

But I do have the FNAR.   It's based on the Browning BAR (not the machine gun).  Smooth operating.  I only have about 100 rounds through it, but really like the way it operates.   I wanted a .308 semi in the armory and decided that the FNAR was good compromise price-wise compared to a FNAL or a M1A1.  Also magazines don't break the bank and are available in larger than 5 rounds.   

Tikka now offers 10 rounders and their tactical versions may even have larger capacity available.

I have a 2-8X-32mm Nikon M3 BDC on my .308 bolt action and am in process of putting same scope on the FNAR, so both .308s will have the same scope.

Been reading up on the Remington 750. While there are some happy campers there is just a massive assload of bad comment on the gun for not running...seems especially prominent in the .308 version.
Reading that though I've discovered the Rem 7600...pump action .308. That's interesting and gets much better reviews.

I was wondering if anyone was going to bring up the 7600.
My Grandpa had one of those and it ended up at our house after he passed for a couple of months when I was 17 or so.  I really liked the way it felt but I'm a fan of the AR-10 and I have a HK91 clone (needs a new barrel, front sight and cocking tube~$300).   ;)

Other than Century's pass poor workmanship, the only thing wrong with the HK 91/CETME family is the fluted chamber is rough on brass.

The HK91 is the one I've wanted for 30+ years. When I finally had money to buy one they quit importing them and the price went up so I couldn't afford one after all. And when I saw one at an auction I was outbid and it just kept going up. I've always wanted one and never cared what it did to the brass but people want too much for them. I guess one of the various ARs would have to suffice.
