PTR 91 A3 R bolt service?

1680 Views 11 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  WillHK
I am considering getting one of the PTR 91s and understand they are pretty reliable compared to some of today's .308 rifles.
I'm new to roller lock guns and just got an SP5K
My question is, how often do these rollers or bolts need to be serviced
I'm sure I can find cleaning and maintenance videos but wanted to get an idea of how long they will run before service/ new bolt

Thanks

Thanks for the link...
I'm sure it will answer most of my questions

Just curious about Cleaning intervals
300, 500 maybe 1000 rounds between cleanings, what do you guys do?
I know you said till the bolt falls apart but does that mean justvreplacing rollers or an entire bolt and what round count that could be expected?... I know I'll probably never shoot it that much

I'll read the link for sure

Thanks again :+1:?

That's pretty much what I do, that or 2 maybe 3 times out to the range max..
My OCD generally doesn't let me go past 300-400 rounds and that's with 5.56
I'll probably clean it every time
I'm excited to get a PTR!

Thanks for all the tips, I'm really excited to pick this thing up!

There is a gun show in town next week and I'm going to look for the slab side handguards, extra mags and a sling.

I heard the G3/91/ PTR run better in bad weather than the scar 17
