and currently looking for an HK Marked Bipod, as I have heard some of the Unmarked one's can be junk. Ie-loose Legs, Etc.
Thanks for the info on the Tac-Latch. Very much appreciated.
Not sure if all HK Factory Bipods were/are marked, but the one's that I have seen, seemed to be better than the one's that weren't marked of unknown origin. Of course it's been a while since I have seen a Marked HK Bipod for sale, and the price on it was around $200.00 NIW.
I have two PTR 91 rifles. One is an 18" barrelled rifle SN A13xx I purchased from Atlantic Firearms. The second is a 16" barrelled rifle SN A25xx I purchased from an individual. The first PTR had the same recess that your picture shows on the HK93. I mounted a Tac-Latch on this one with little or no dremeling. The second rifle arrived with the Tac-Latch already in place. Inspecting this rifle showed that it originally had the smaller opening illustrated by the PTR in your picture. So there apparently was a change in the configuration of these rifles by J.L.D.OK, I took a pic of the bottom my HK93 and PTR91, the HK is on the left and the PTR is on the right. As you can see, the opening on the HK extends farther back than the opening on the PTR. I think all that is needed is to open it up a bit more and the Tac Latch would work, I'm almost sure that I've seen this done before on one of the boards. Hope this helps-AKATTACK
Same here. Oh, well... Picked up an OEM paddle mag kit for cheap on Gunbroker.com. Gun is going back to IGF for an install.On my rifle, its not just the sheet metal of the receiver thats a problem, I would have dremeled that out in 5 minutes. It is a very heavy metal shelf or tab that is up inside that area, that is probably about 1/4" thick and very hard to get at with any tools.
You're very welcome! It may also be possible to trim the taclatch itself slightly if the "bar" inside the PTR is in the way. Then you won't have to trim the "bar" of your PTR and you can leave it alone~just a suggestion. I haven't seen the taclatch in person, but I'm going to order one for my PTR if you get yours installed without any problems. With the plastic grip frame on my PTR, it's a little more difficult to depress the mag release on the side. Good luck!! AKATTACKYup, that's the tab. I don't see a problem at all in installing the Taclatch, especially now that I was able to view these PICS. The PTR's steel block might be a little thicker, but since the existing cutout must be extended, it may need to be filed slightly. In any event, it looks like a simple operation, probably about an hour or so.
For the sake of this post, and I'm sure the wondering's of others who have thought about doing the same, I intend to post PICS of before and after, and the installation of the Latch Assembly itself. Again, many thanks!
