Which older 16mm to buy?

The film's look is patterned after a 70 documentary that used a CP 16R
My thought was to pick one up and film with that but I want to know if there are any problems with that camera or it anyone thought a ACL or NPR might be a good alternate choice.
I will be recording sound. If an NPR was high on people's list I could pick one up with a new motor that would sync.
Thanks for your help
PS:I already have a Bolex and just wan't to add variety to my cameras. That's why I didn't include it on my list.

The electronics in CP-16s are becoming more difficult to find. The chips are proprietary and will never be made again. I think you can get an NPR or an ACL quite cheaply these days, and they are both sound sync cameras (if you get a crystal motor with the NPR; the ACLs have crystal motors).
