    Default Buying a PTR-91, What do I need to know?

    I'm getting my first HK rifle, clone really. It's a heavy barrel and It's a lot different than my M1A.

    Any advice, recommendations?

    I really like my PTR-91 rifle but I wish I would have spent a little more and got the Scout Carbine. Fluted 16" barrel, welded scope mount and better balance. AtlanticFirearms website has better photos than the PTR-91 site. Check it out

    Don't overlube it, they like dry chambers. ;)


    Oh, and get a .22lr kit for it, you'll love it.

    1. PTR rules
    2. Learn to love the recoil
    3. Get some decent human-sized targets....
    4. Put an SEF lower on that b*tch. Those polymer 0,1 lowers blow IMHO....

    Thanks guys.

    Is it tough to change out barrels in these things? I mean as one poster above suggested a 16" barrel. Can that be done?

    I'm not so worried about the recoil. My M1A has some kick to it, can the 91 be that much more?

    Where is the best place to go for accessories? I rally would like to get a telescoping stock for it if that is an option.

    As I search, I'm curious to know about wide vs regular forearms, which is more desirable?

    Easiest thing in the world.

    Save the box it will come in. Put it back into the box along with a check and send it off to one of the smiths listed as "the good guys". Call up preferred "good guy" and inform him you accept the deal you obviously talked about earlier and it's on it's way. (use USPS, see various how-tos in other threads).

    You aren't going to want to try this on your own... trust me.

    Also, make sure to send your trigger pack off to one of the gunsmiths that everybody talks about around here. Williams Trigger Specialties did mine, but there are others. The stock trigger in the PTR is *terrible*, but $50-75 and 2-3 weeks at a smith will get you back a much better trigger pull.

    All I can really say is... yes, it CAN get worse than your M1A. It most certainly can.

    But that being said, I still think it's something that just about anyone can get used to.

    Get the PTR-MSG91, The welded mount, Magpul PRS stock, bipod, and REALLY REALLY nice furniture make it totally worth the extra $$$. Also it has the 18" fluted heavy barrel and flash hider (removable FH, I might add).

    PTR KICKS ASS!

    +2 for the .22LR kit if you can still find one, I love mine.
