Richard,Thanks for sharing that experience!
To my knowledge this is the first time that CETME Model LV kits have been available in the USA.
We only have the one batch of LV's with no more coming.
No, not even close. These receivers are very square and have the trigger pack included in the receiver. Very different. There are some poor flats out there. However I am holding out for a better receiver to hit the market soon!So...these do use the same HK receiver correct?
Its just one of those kits I always kind of wanted but never was available in the US. Its not to special, just a HK33 for the most part. Quality is considered below average as they had a lot of issues with these, mainly because of the Mags. Its just the first kit in a long time to come into the US that I was interested in and had not already bought!Interesting. You guys sound like you are very into these rifles. Is there something special about them as far as quality or accuracy that makes them unique? Just curious. I had never heard of these before......
Thanks for sharing that image of the CETME Model LV with a Zeiss FERO Z51 night vision scope attached to the STANAG base.
Richard,I actually have been asking on web forums if anyone knows the nomenclature of the optics that are shown mounted on the CETME Model LV.
No importer has offered me any Spanish optics, but if they do, I would like to know if they are the correct scope.
I have been asked if we are interested in the bayonets.
Thanks for allowing me to repost those pictures.Richard,
I see you posted in the Militaryfirearm forum linked below. There is a guy there named Sampedro in that thread. I think he originally posted some of those pictures you have there. I believe he was in the Spanish Military and worked on these CETMEs in the service. He seems to know the ins and outs of these guns. If you PM him, he has been very helpful to with me over the years. He seems to know more on the subject that anyone else I have run into!
The NV scope in your picture is a ENOSA 4x day/night scope. Looks like they also used SUSAT scopes but not on the STANAG mounts. The LV kits you have now don't actually show up that often in pictures with scopes on them. Maybe because the scope sat so high, they were not as popular or maybe they were only running large optics on them, like NV scopes, that were removed during the day? I don't know if I have seen a picture of this LV model with a day scope.
Bayonets would be great. Another company had a small lot of them that came in a few months back. As you can see I bought one.
Feel free to repost my picture with the German scope on other forums if you wish! I think its a fairly nice match!

APEX has an account on the Militaryfirearms.com site, and I have followed the info that Sampedro has shared.
I do not think anyone asked about the optics.
I am surprised that the arrival of the LV kits didn't spark a new discussion on that forum.
