Description:

This is an excellent example of a rare Spanish CETME Sport "Model-C" semi-automatic rifle. These CETME rifles were based on the design developed by the German engineer Ludwig Vorgrimler in 1945 who also used this design to develop the experimental German StG 45(M). The Model C rifles use the same type of delayed rolled-block, blowback type mechanism that eventually evolved into an extremely successful and very famous HK91/93 series of rifles. Shows the standard large MARS Equipment Corp. import mark on the right side of the receiver and "CETME 'Sport'" on the left. The rifle has standard model C features and includes a web sling and an unmarked shipping box.

Rating Definition:

Excellent overall, retains 99% original finish with some scattered light handling marks and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
