Ok I will jump in. I have a PTR91 GI. Good rifle, I think maybe 200-400 rounds shot through it. Fun gun, head turner at the range. Heavy trigger though, not very accurate standing as a result. But very fun. Going to finally get it zero'd at 100 yards soon and then figure it out from there.

I love my PTR 91 Special Edition GI, becoming my favorite at the range. I didn't realize how much I would love the .308 round, and recoil is minimal. Definately lighter than I expected. It must have the enhanced buffer installed.

For anyone who is planning on attempting to change out the original painted cocking tube end cap to a bayonet adaptor, be prepared for a fight! If your end cap does not just come out when your detent is pressed in, then more than likely there is excess paint that dried between the end cap and the inside of the cocking tube. I had to drill a hole in the center of mine and then thread it and use a slide hammer to pull it out. Once the the old cap was out of the way my bayonet adaptor went in just like it was supposed to. Hopefully, all of yours will come out like they are supposed to though.

So do we need to set up guidelines for this thread or what are we going to do with it?

My GI R is apart right now, I sent the trigger pack out to williams for a standard trigger job.

My thoughts on this thread were for it to be a "go to" of information on the PTR91 rifles that we can have readily available. Anything from pics of our rifles, pearls of wisdom on modifying them, or ammo that doesn't seem to function well or the best ammo that you have found for your rifles. I know when I was trying to replace the end cap on my rifle and it wasn't coming out easily like it was supposed to, I took to the search function here. I finally found one thread that had info on it and it helped me, but it would have been easier had it been in a "centralized" thread. What would you guys like to see here?

I'm cool with that, what would not be as beneficial is for there to be a ton of chatter in here we'd run into the same issue of trying to find stuff in here that we have in the regular forum

Just my .02. Multiple conversations in a single thread will be very difficult to maintain. A group really allows for the organizational aspect of this endeavor. Maybe the mods would allow for your post to become a sticky and just act as a placeholder pointing interested members to the group page.

@2ndAmendmentMason In lieu of a response to your PM (my box is full and I can't reply to you directly)

You are correct in your observation - most groups don't get a lot of traction. I will say that if everyone who joins - also subscribes to the notification feature, they will get an email when there is posting activity which should drive traffic back to the group. Stress this point to new group members when and if you pursue this endeavor.

Good luck

Found the invite, it's in user settings. Thanks, joined. I wish we had a sticky for the images though. Do groups not show up in this forum area?

Josefius, unfortunately the groups do not show up in this forum area. In fact, I have always thought that a specific group would be better than a specific thread, but was afraid that it would not take off due to the lack of traffic in the group area. I am hoping that if the section mods will tack this thread up it will help direct potential group members to our group. I have honestly never spent anytime within the groups, but I guess that will be changing. I would just like to see our group take off and flourish and be a great resource for us that own PTR's. nice pic, BTW!

Thanks, I love this rifle. I hope the group takes off, and at the very least we get the picture thread as a sticky. btw, I found a great grease called Slip2000 EWG (Extreme Weapons Grease) it has made things a bit easier and I've heard good things about Slip2000. I have the CLP oil as well, but have yet to use it on any of my firearms.

Amen brother!

I just got an SC for Christmas and it took me about an hour to remove the stuck cap! I've owned several clones over the years and always replace the blank plug with a bayo cap. The detent that normally would secure the cap wasn't even rotated into place. In fact, the cap itself was secured entirely by the thick power-coating/paint or whatever PTR sprays on their rifles. I was so puzzled by the fact that it wasn't removable that I called PTR and asked if it was soldered on. I tried cutting the edge with a razor blade, hammer and chisel, vice grips, etc. I eventually ended up clamping the edges of the cap in the vice and giving the end of the barrel a good whack. The aluminum cap was destroyed in the process and I put a few scratches on the triple frame and barrel. I prefer the CETME plug and bayonet which requires an additional hole in the triple frame for a second detent located around 2 o'clock (see attached photos). Overall it was a lot more trouble than it should have been.

Oh, and I'm sure some eagle-eye will notice that the handguard is NOT the hideous aluminum dealie that normally comes on the SC. That's because I replaced it with a used [modified] HK33 handguard.

I replaced mine a few days ago and it was in pretty tight, the detent was in the correct position and it wasn't painted in but I had to hammer the bayonet adapter in after prying the end-cap off. I destroyed my end-cap too, it was black aluminum.

When we added the bayo adapter to mine and my buddy's rifles we had to really bugger up the end cap on one to get it off but the other popped right off easily. On both rifles the bayo adapter's went right in with no issues though.

Yeah, I don't know. Maybe they got some paint inside a bit. It went in ok, I just had to tap it in to fully seat it with the back of the screwdriver.
