Best CETME Scopes – [Editor’s Choice]

1. Trijicon TR20 AccuPoint 3-9×40 Riflescope

Trijicon is often misunderstood. A lot of people just outright claim they are bad because they are cheap. That’s not right at all. Trijicon makes some great scope for us budget folks. What’s so wrong with that?

TR20 is a budget scope made from aluminum. Durable and capable of doing hunting and range shooting, it’s an easy choice to pair with CETME. The inside of the scope is fully purged with nitrogen. Making it fogproof. It is also shock and waterproof.

The lens of the TR20 is fully multi-coated. The coating makes the lens brighter and better overall. Improves clarity and low-light performance. It’s a 3-9x scope with a massive 40mm objective lens. You don’t need to worry about brightness on this scope.

It’s a good pairing with CETME. It can take that gun’s recoil and enable it to perform even better. If it is legal to hunt with that gun in your state, then you will have a killer combination. If you just want to practice shooting on a range, that’s okay as well.

The housing of this scope is made out of high-quality aluminum. It is durable and rugged. The internal of the scope is fully purged with nitrogen. Making it a fog-proof scope. Outside of the scope is sturdy to protect the lens from shocks of recoil and accidental drops.

The lens used here is fully multi-coated as well. Camera-like crystal clear vision will give you a competitive edge over your opponents in the range or the game. They are bright, color-accurate, and no distortion is present anywhere.

I cannot stretch this enough, it’s a perfect pairing with CETME. It’s one of the best scopes for CETME you could ever buy. With a limited lifetime warranty, I can see you keep this scope for quite forever.

3. Hi-Lux Optics M1000-PRO 2-10×42 Riflescope

Hi-Lux M1000 pro is an automatic trajectory ranging also known as Art, riflescope from Hi-lux.

What is Art? We are not talking about Monalisa here. It’s not that kind of art. Here, Art compensates for your bullet drop. Calculating the trajectory ranging, can compensate for the bullet drop. How exactly does it help? Well, for one, you can re-adjust your aim so you don’t miss the next shot.

Is the Art here all words and zero on the field? Not quite. High-Lux managed to make Artwork. Besides that, this scope is made with aluminum to be shock and waterproof. It is also fogproof. And, it is compatible with CETME.

The lenses of the scope are very well as well. Their coating is good. They are bright, not the best for low-light but they gets the job done. It’s not a night-vision scope by any means. Don’t think of it as one. The maximum magnification of this scope is 10x. While the CETME might not be able to maximize this range, it’s good to have some at your disposal.

Where is this scope made?


Does it come with mounting rings?

It has an integrated mounting interface.

What kind of battery does it need?

It needs 1 lithium-ion battery. It’s included in the package.

CETME Scopes – Buying Guides

CETME is not quite an icon. It’s not as popular as AR-15s or other SMG’s. But it has its market and it has its customer. Those customers want the very best for their guns. If you keep some things in mind while purchasing the scope, you will get the best.

Build Quality

Scope build quality makes sure the internal is good enough to withstand accidents. It’s good enough to keep the adjustments intact. The lens can’t be protected if the housing is not durable.

Lens Quality

I cannot emphasize enough how important picking a good lens is. Not every lens is good. Coating can make cheap glass perform well. But not all cheap glass has a good coating. There is a fine line between the two. Don’t fall for the trap. Go for good lenses.


If the scope doesn’t have any warranty, it seems like a shady deal. Good brands will always provide warranties with their product. It can be 1 year or a lifetime. Depends on the brand.


Owning the original CETME is not possible anymore. Unless you are an antique collector and managed to snag one somehow.

For the automatic variant of the rifle, it can be obtained quite easily and many people own it. This was a hassle to find the best scope for CETME. But a hassle worth the experience.

I know how hard it can be to choose from countless options. I made those countless options countable for you. You can pick either from the list and go home a happy bunny. Enjoy your new scope. Take care.
