Cool Forgotten Weapons merch! http://shop.forgottenweapons.com
The early production CETME-L (and CETME-LC) rifles used a thin, fragile, full-length handguard. It was redesigned fairly early in production with a much more durable version that provided better hand insulation. The Spanish Army updated all of its rifles to use the new pattern, but the Guardia Civil retained some of its early style ones. Here in the US, only 200 of the early pattern were imported along with the tens of thousands of parts kits. They make an interesting item for the dedicated collector, but are not are practical for real use as the improved model (I mean, it was improved for good reason…)
Thanks to BrowncoatNerd for sending me this one!

At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
