    Ok, I have done a search and read through the comments. Does anyone have any opinions of this rifle? One has been offered to me used and I am trying to decide if I want it. The model that is for sale is the PTR 91 KFM4, which has picatinny rails and a collapsible stock like and AR. The asking price is $1200. What are your thoughts?

    Have you looked up the MSRP? I'm not sure but $1200 seems a bit pricey for a used PTR91 unless it comes with some extras.

    MSRP is $1,440. The asking price for this used one is $1200, but it does not look like it has been used much, and is cosmetically perfect. Owner claims only 100 rounds or less fired.

    Things to consider: Make sure magwell and stock are tight. Sight adjustment takes modified pliers or HK tool.

    If you want it go for it but I bet you could find a new one for cheaper if you just look around. The panic has died down and we are in a recession so shop around and haggle with the guy. Call CDNN as see how much they want for a new one (page 5):

    I just called CDNN... new ones go for $1149 now... but I would probably have $1200 in it by the time it was shipped and did FFL transfer.

    Maybe $10 more but it would be new :evil:

    I would use the CDNN price to get the guy down to $1000 but that's just me.

    But in all seriousness PTR91's are nice rifles. They can be a bit rough on brass if you plan on reloading

    After some initial teething problems, my rifle has not missed a beat. It is extremely accurate, and reliable.

    It will readily accept the 22 long rifle G3 conversion kit too, which with ammo prices being what they are these days, is a heck of a deal.

    I have owned my PTR-91 for close to six years.
    No complaints on fit, function, or accuracy.

    Try to haggle, but that's not an unreasonable price. A PTR-91 is a rifle you will never regret. I did sell mine, but someone made me an offer I couldn't refuse. I will have another one someday.

    I traded mine for a G21SF and G(lock)36. I know I kind of lost on the trade. The PTR was great, but it just kind of sat in the safe and never really fit any role.

    My tastes just kind of changed.... I didn't want my rifles to resembles Rainbow Six guns anymore.
