The MG42 locking system actually locks completely and requires a short stroke barrel that travels backwards to unlock, compared to the StG45 M system that never completely locks and does not require a moving barrel. The first prototype rifles fired the same 7. Production of the rifle began in Spain in The primary difference in the production models is the modes of fire, the absence of bipod and lighter weight for later models. CETME prototype. Note: position of rear sight and bi-pod folded back to form fore-stock.

The Model A's were the developmental prototypes. The Model A's are easily identified by the position of rear sight and bi-pod folded back to form fore-stock. The Model B was the first production model. It had a perforated steel handguard and chambered for the 7. The 7. The parts for the Model B are for most part interchangeable with the later Model C rifles.

The Spanish Army adopted a variant of the Model B re-chambered for the more powerful 7. The Model B could be converted to fire the 7. The Model C was a lightweight version that was chambered for the 7. The Model C is virtually identical to the Model B. However, certain components had been strengthened to better deal with the increase power of the standard 7. After a short period on the production line, it was discovered that they were weaker than the previous models and that continuous fire deformed the firearms rapidly, and due to this, relatively few were produced and they were quickly discontinued.

Although largely built from Model "C" parts, there have been reports of model "B" parts in the Model "C" Century built rifles. Due to the restrictions against importing receivers of select fire weapons, all receivers for these civilian versions are made in the US.

Earlier receivers were of cast aluminum, while later receivers were made from stamped and welded steel. Due to state and local laws restricting weapons with assault weapon features, the CETME Sporter is also available with a permanently pinned muzzle brake rather than the original flash hider.

The requirements for the original design requested the rifle weigh no more than 4. This required a very ambitious development of rifle technology to work but the CETME engineers, based on earlier German experiments, believed this was possible by using an unconventional projectile. Thus the 7. It would be lightweight and elongated to make it aerodynamic, yet fired at normal rifle velocities. The rounds weighed 6. To allow such a long projectile to be stable in flight, a method was required to achieve proper mass distribution. The solution was that the aluminium core was wrapped around the middle in a copper jacket that was open at both ends, leaving the exposed aluminium core at either end the core's middle section was compressed to allow the copper jacket to fit without protruding.
