Ok all you Cetme owners I have few questions I hope you can answer for me. First, will G3/Hk 91 mags work in the Cetme or are you forced to use the Cetme mags? Second, will the stock and forearm from the G3/Hk91 fit on the Cetme? Finally, how interchangeable are the parts between the G3/Hk 91 and the Cetme? Thx in advance.
The rifle came with an original CETME 20 round magazine. CETME magazines can be distinguished from similar looking G3 magazines as they are slightly curved (however, G3 magazines will function in the rifle). Seating the magazine required a healthy tap on the baseplate. Similarly, removing the magazine required depressing the magazine latch button and then rotating the magazine forward out of the receiver as one would do with an M14, FAL, or AK series rifle.

Not sure that gun-fucius has answered your question adequately, so I'll chip in: Yes, HK mags will work in the CETME. In fact, I have more HK mags than I do CETME mags for my CETME.
One of the CETME sites (do a Google) has a detailed list of parts that will interchange directly. As i recall, it includes barrels, firing pins, extractors, and some other parts. Buttstocks are not a direct interchange but can fit with mods.

I have heard from the CETME forum, but cannot confirm, that the G3/HK91 stock sets work with CETME's with a little minor hand fitting. Here's the CETME forume with lots more answers:
