Greetings from Arizona! By some amazing streak of luck, I managed to get my hands on a Cetme 308 G3 clone for about normal market price, with a ton of extras and over $100 worth of ammunition free of charge!
I'm fairly new to long rifles, I'm more of a shotgun person, but I love a .308 round and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to pick this thing up. Aside from being spray painted camo (which a little acetone and paint thinner will solve), the thing looks great.
I was curious about a few things though, because I know a 308 round has a lot of potential for slightly longer ranges. The Cetme seems to perform well at about 200-400 yards before its lethality and accuracy drop off the face of the earth. My question is, on a budget, what's a good scope that I could get for my brand new used gun? Doesn't have to be anything super fancy, it's not a life or death thing.
Another question I had was for any other Cetme owners. I've been looking around the internet and keep getting conflicting answers, and it'd be nice to get something more definitive. Which parts fit this gun: The H&K G3, or the H&K 91? The old wood stock on there isn't the greatest, and it has a black pistol grip with a green handguard underneath all the paint. Which means I have 1 of each of the three sets: Matte black, Green, or traditional wooden. An answer to this would be great before I set my sights on something particular.
Thanks for the help!
