Okay guys so my PTR-91 will be here in 5 days and I'm very excited! I almost got the DSA FAL, but decided on the PTR-91 and am confident in my choice. Now, its time to consider some modifications!

Keep in mind that I usually modify my guns a lot, but for this PTR-91... I am going to keep it pretty simple. For example, I definitely will not be putting any optics on my PTR-91 and I am not a fan of some of the hand guards especially the ones that look like Legos (no offense!). I do realize that they actually have use such as putting accessories on them, but I just wont be needing such accessories on it.

Also, I know that I do not want a folding stock on it. For everything else .... I need suggestions from you guys!!

Thanks

Wood stocks are nice.

Collapsible stocks are nice.

Wide forends are nice. The HK light bipod is nice.

A port buffer is a necessity if you wish to reload.

A Bill Springfield trigger job and paddle magazine release modification are nice.

A bore guide and cleaning brushes are nice. Go to E&L to get the brush set. Go to HKpro dot com and look up Convert53 for the bore guide.

Ballistol is nice.

A couple of magazines and a magazine loader are nice.

Mag pouches make life at the range somewhat easier.

A 2 stage heavy buffer is nice.

Here is mine (not a PTR but similar enough) :

It has:

A wide forend

A bipod

A PSG-1 wooden target grip

A port buffer

A trigger job

I would not rule out the mounting of optics since the G3 platform is very accurate. It can serve as the basis for a long-range semi-auto with some modifications. A PSG-1-style stock with an adjustable cheekpiece is a must in that case. Magpul makes one for 250 dollars.

So what chamber and barrel length did you decide on?

Congrats, :D

If you want to keep it simple a collapsible stock would be a good choice, I think the HK surplus ones fit on the ptr but don't take my word on that.

One suggestion that others here could follow up on a (I think it is called) a buffer piece that wont fling the brass so far or tear it up as bad.

Hope you enjoy the rifle.

I got the .308 16". I'm excited and cannot wait until I get it. I might have to go to the basement and shoot off a round since I probably wont be able to wait until I get it to the range :)

There are .22 conversion kits available for them, too.

Didn't he just say in the other thread not to try to talk him into a .22/.223?:p

It will be awfully loud and shatter your window glasses. If you are in city limit, you may get an officer knocking on your door.

Oh yes. The collapsible will fit just fine. The 22 conversion kit is a real joy to shoot.

The HK collapsible stock does fit just fine though shooting a rifle with that stock is not fun at all. Unless you really have some need for a carbine steer clear of that stock, it's worthless.

Been there done that, mine's in a box somewhere.
