Found a nice one for sale and am curious what the going rate might be. Only see a couple on Gunbroker and would really like a couple more data points to figure out what this thing might be worth. Seems to be in really nice condition with a pristine bore.

$350 for the FR-8, give or take a bit. Can't help you on the Cetmeton. :wink:

I read someplace that "Cetmeton" was the nickname for the thing.....

I've never heard that term before. Google backs you up though, so I learned my something new today. My $350 price comes from the one I sold in June. It was refinished, quite nicely. It was listed for less than 24 hours. I recently saw one at the funshow, not near as nice as mine, with a tag for north of $400.

The one I'm considering is $225 which seemed decent if for no other reason that it's a compact .308 bolt gun.

Snap it up. If you don't want it, PM me with the contact info and I'll buy it.

Worst case scenario is you buy it and don't like it as much as you thought might. Then you list it on one of these boards and make a few bucks.

I've a FR-8 bayonet and scabbard, good, decent shape. Would anyone venture a value for them? Thanks.

CAREFUL BOYS!! Make sure you know what your rifle really is !!.:eek:

I have a 1916 Spanish Mauser action that is total junk becuase of poor metalurgy. REALLY WEAK SOFT METAL.

The 7.62X51 Cetma A was a much weaker loading than 7.62X51 Nato.

FR8 are fine little rifles, the FR-7 or Guardia Civil .308 rifles are dangerous junk.

But don't just take my word on it.

$10. For a long time, not that long ago, Century gave them away as freebees.

Not a bad price and one of my favorite rifles.
