    Default Scorpion arms PTR 91, the good, bad and the ugly ?

    i just won this on GB for $735 . i did some research on both hkpro and google . it has a AW seral #, but does not fall in PTR's recall models . most of the threads i searched were dated 09-11, the info i gathered was positive .

    since i got my 1st roller, the sp5k 4mo. ago and then picked up the mke 5rs 1 mo. ago i have to come to really appreciate this iconic weapon platform . after reading several threads on the ptr 91 i decide it was time for me to see what all this hypes about .

    so my question for the knowledgeable members is, the good the bad and the ugly .

    any help is appreciated .

    Good
    You got an early rifle with many quality surplus parts

    Bad
    Profile of the barrel isn't true to the original

    Ugly
    That damn forearm.
    I don't "run" my guns or "run" anything on them. Likewise, none of my guns are "platforms". I hold them up, not the other way around.

    the bad you mean 18" ?

    you're right about the ugly . i like the classic look, what vendor do you recommend for the traditional forearm ?

    thank you

    Not so much the length but the shape, profile, lack of factory looking taper, non-factory flash hider. Just personal preference. I had a PTR91K, the first group JLD ever built. Didn't like it at all.
    Your rifle uses an HK93/33 forearm, which can be had from anywhere. RTG Parts, GunBroker, HKParts.net, ad in marketplace. Darn near go to the 7-11 and get one.

    BTW, the best "good" there is, you got it for a great price.

    one more question, do you know if the muzzle break is threaded, can it be removed ? if so what is the thread pitch/thread count ?

    thanks for all your help @hkshooterusp
