Don't know much about it. I has a A44xx Serial number. It is .308, I believe 16" barrel. I don't see any other makings besides the two stamps on the receiver. I was reading it has parts with the same design as the HKG3. It also came with 11 magazines(pervious owner said it shot great with both but better with the steel), 8 marked with dates between 1981-1985(other 3 are steel) and a bayonet with the scabbard. I was able to get it in a trade for a savage bolt action .233.

Any details or information that could be provided would be greatly appreciated. This is a model k? Real G3 parts, or just same design? Some have windage adjustment, other don't? What makes one PTR-91 more unique then another? I can get more photos if needed. Thanks in advance.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Brian

Congrat's. In my opinion, the JLD guns are far superior to the guns PTR builds today. Real HK, FMP, & Rheinmetal parts. Not substandard US made parts. I have one too, A33##. Enjoy. GARY

I have JLD #18##. Great rifle but if it has a 10 flute barrel like mine it will jam up badly on Wenchester white box. They are very weak and will not extract. Use only full power rounds and you will be fine.

4000 serial and the scorpion logo point to a later JLD design. It may as another poster said have a 10 flute barrel. If so they are quite a bit more picky about what ammo they will eat. My recall is the 10 flute's had trouble with much of the surplus ammo on the market at the time of their original sale.

Negative on the 10 flute barrel causing problems. My A30## gun has a 10 flute barrel, & the gun inhales SA ammo which chokes newer barrels. The earlier barrels [like on my gun] were made by Harris, & ate anything. The later barrels were made by Thompson Center, & that's when the problems started. 10 rounds of SA ammo, & the guns choked.

From what I remember it wasn't the surplus ammo in general, it was the surplus ammo that was tar sealed.

Most NATO 7.62x51 ammo was tar sealed. I had a PTR91 that would not handle any of it and every other 7.62x51 Battle Rifle that I owned would. That PTR91 was sold off.

But yet my JLD gun loves the "dirty ammo". When I clean the gun after a range trip, the tar is everywhere. What a mess, but yet the gun loves it. Not a single miss. Everything went south when they changed to the TC barrels. GARY

We all know now that the PTR chambers were out of spec on those models, it's sad because that rifle was dead nut's accurate with .308.
It was an early 16" K model with the Bull Barrel.
