    Need some close up pics of the right side to see who made the receiver but from that pic it in not a Century gun. It has a Brit cut receiver and Brit furniture. Probably an Entreprise or DSA Receiver. It looks to be a nice rig.
    For the most part they shoot very well. Not a match type gun as most are good for 2-4 MOA but they work very well for what they are intended for for. Hitting a man size target at 600 yards.

    With my Imbel I can hit milk jugs all day long at 400 yards with boring consistency.
    I have thousands of rounds through mine with not one problem.
    It eats soft points and FMJ all day long.
    Keep the gun oiled and the temple clean

    Having some issues with magazine fitting real tight. Looks like the ejector block is sitting too far forward. I might send it in for work. Come on anyone else familiar with this gun?

    Who made the receiver?
    Do you have more than one mag?
    Are they the correct mags for the rifle?

    If all mags are inch ones and all fit tight then try this.
    Remove the mag latch and see if the mag swings into place easily.
    If so take a file and adjust the latch.
    It probably won't take but a few strokes and test fit to get it right.
    If you send it in that is what they will do to it.
    Sometimes it is to far back and material has to be added to the latch and file to fit.

    If it has a inch reciever then metric mags will fit but they might be loose.

    Century according to box it was shipped in. Inch gun. FFL dealer tried to fit his inch mag in while loaded and it didn't fit at all.

    If recall correctly Inch mags have a small block brazed to the front of the mag that fits into the corresponding cut in the front of the mag well. The Metric mags have a small portion of metal punched forward from the front of the mag to fit into the magwell cut, a much smaller cut.

    The box it was sent in may say Century but what is marked on the receiver?
    From your pic it shows the receiver with lightning cuts on it.
    All Century receivers I have seen have all been a Metric pattern type III.
    Slab sides no lightning cuts.

    There are a few around that have been cut for Inch pattern features. The mag, charging handle and top cover. But they are still slab sided.

    DSA is supposed to have them, more likely back ordered and they are Australian cut.
    Entreprise has some older Aussie cut ones and will have new British and Aussie cut ones out by the end of the year.

    From your pic it looks like the lightning cuts on the upper receiver and the recoil plate do not match.
    Aussie cut


    British cut.


    Just curious who made your receiver.

    I will try and get better pics. Been busy. Shot the gun the other day and it doesn't eject shell. Mag goes in a little easier, but still a little bit of a challenge. Gas plug has groove side up and I adjusted the gas to all different settings with no luck. Might have got a lemon.
