    Default Took the PTR plunge

    I just wanted another 308 rifle and couldn't afford a HK,
    This will be a shooter if my bolt head holds up.

    Don't really like the V notch rear sight but that's easy enough to change.

    Any advice on this rifle would be appreciated.

    Congrats, I love my PTR. Get yourself an hk21 charging handle and it’ll change the experience completely. A PCS heavy buffer is a great option for recoil management and it drops right into the factory stock. But really the BEST thing you can do is send your trigger off to Denny Williams (Williams trigger specialties). He did an SG1 set trigger for me and it’s similar to the SSAE on my mk18.

    You should be using the 200m sight. That notch is for close work. Keep the buffer and buy one of the HK 21 rubber butt plates, snap out the old and snap in the new. My PTR bolt head has been in my rifle since early 2017 without any problems . Thousands of rounds.

    Yes get that HK21 but-pad, best thing to reduce recoil is to replace the flash hider with a Muzzle brake. On a side note my PTR91GI from 2010 has the original bolt head, no problems at all.

    Congrats on the purchase. Keep us updated on how it shoots. I'm looking hard at getting a PTR.

    I love the HK iron sights more than any iron sights I’ve ever used.

    Does your PTR have the cetme style cocking tube?

    Thank you guys for all the responses and information, I really appreciate it.
    When I get a chance to shoot it I will leave a range report with pictures.

    This rifle came highly recommended from a good friend in AZ, he is also the one who told me to join this forum, and I am glad I did.

    I also really like HK sights and will use the 200m, and about the cocking tube, I do not know what style it is.Took the PTR plunge-img_2761.jpgTook the PTR plunge-img_2762.jpgTook the PTR plunge-img_2765.jpg maybe this will help.

    I resemble that remark! Glad to see you posting this one up buddy!

    Here's mine. Pretty basic. It came as a PTR Military Classic (or something like that) with really nice wood furniture that I didn't want to damage so off that came and on went the plastics. What I did to mine:
    - POF green stock and wide handguard from RTG Parts
    - Greek army bipod.
    - Bill Springfield improved buffer
    - HK21 buttpad

    The Wide handguards on the PTR Rifle s are the way to go , Gives it such a good look and way better heat protection .
