Let me join in with the others who got a HK91 clone. Mine is a PTR 91 GI. My FFL let me unbox it, I have it home now still in the packing grease. I have a HK91 bayonet, sling and original cleaning kit ordered from HK Parts. 5 surplus magazines came in yesterday with 4 more on the way with an original bayonet lug to replace the end cap for a total of 10 magazines. The magazine dates range from 1964 to 1988. I haven't checked if it had 12 flutes or not, but when I clean it I'll let you all know. I don't know what the "special edition" entails from the normal GI.

Range report: I got a couple boxes to test reliability with brass and steel case, got Winchester 7.62x51 brass and Monarch 308 steel case, ran like a champ, was really too windy for 400 yards but shot anyway. Was getting a strong head wind so was hitting low. Will go out again and shoot the XM80c 7.62x51 when the wind dies down sometime soon. Thanks Tony!

Figured out the correct way to install the German army surplus sling 😁 it was not in this configuration when I got it.

Nice color/style furniture...

Sometime pick up a 21 buttpad, you'll never regret it.

I'll look into that thanks, thanks for the welcome. I noticed that the charging handle is a bit tough to pull back sometimes, is this the result of a new and strong recoil spring?

Conelrad took the words out of my mouth. Best upgrade you can make. Enjoy they are a lot of fun. You might also snag a $75 bipod off RTG parts while they are cheap. You will also need a wide handguard for it then. So it begins.

I was looking at those, the wide hand guard too. At least I'm on the same page ☺ I'm going out again tomorrow if it's not windy like it was today to zero my sites. I need some needle nose pliers I guess. Do I start with the 1 at 100 yards or 30 yards?

I added the 21 buttpad and one thing I noticed was that it was a bit slower to shoulder as the rubber grips my clothes and must be placed more so then slid into position.

With its wider/softer footprint it does take a slight amount of bite out of the recoil impulse. But truthfully I didn't find the feel from the solid buttpad to be all that objectionable.

What are your bolt and charging handle gaps like?

I need to get a feeler gauge to do that :/ I do notice that it's not so hard once I pull the charging handle out and get it initially going.

I charged the rifle and used a ghetto way of checking, I cut a piece of card stock (about a couple pieces of paper in thickness) and stuck it between the bolt and it fit. I find it's easier to pull if I haven't pulled the trigger. It's actually getting easier to pull. But I will get a set of feeler gauges from Lowe's tomorrow.

Unlocking is the hard part. If the cocking tube gap is good it is.not a big deal. The extended cocking lever and the PCS Selector switch make things nicer as well.

The hammer HAS to be down (trigger pulled) to check the gaps. The chamber face also needs to be clean.
