View Full Version : Century ar15
Anyone have any experience with Century Arms AR15 A2 Heavy Barrel Rifles? I just purchased a used one and I was supprised how accurate it is. It shoots tight clusters at 100 yards with my hand loads. Thanks

Can't say that I have, but it sounds like you found a good one! :icon_salut: Pics or it didn't happen.. (Not to mention doing so gives a frame of reference) :icon_lol:
I have read that these are predominately ex-Colt guns with new US barrel and (Superior??) lower. Most posts tended to be positive.
I own a Century 'C15 Sporter'..which is basicaly a well used Colt M16A2 rebuilt into a civilian legal AR15A2 with a really thick/heavy barrel.
Yeh..it shoots great. I bought it in mid 2008(Obama gun)...Any parts with markings..bolt assembly(modified)..upper receiver..front sight base.. etc are Colt..I had thought the lower was CMT...but it could be anything..nice looking receiver. It's a mix of old and new parts. My front sling swivel and rivit was worn BAD..I installed a new swivel and rivit.
Check your roll-pins! On mine, while it had all new springs..they re-used the old roll-pins..and I had to replace a couple that wouldn't hold.
Nobody seems to know what kind of barrels these are..I don't think they are chromed..seem to be 1-9 twist..and are seriously thick under the handguard. I've heard rumors they are 'Green Mountain' barrels..but don't know for sure.
I look at my Century C15 as a 'poor-boy' AR varmit shooter/truck gun/plinker. I even rigged it up with a Leupold scope and carry handle mount. With quality commercial ammo will shoot 1 1/2" 100 meter groups. With ball ammo..commercial/Russian/or surplus..maybe 2"-5" or so.
