    How do I disassemble the PTR buttstock?

    There are no screws on the end of the buttpad such as on the CETME/G3 stocks.

    Answered my own question.

    FYI the buttpad is glued onto the stock. In a less-than-elegant manner, I clamped mine into a benchvise and tore them apart. As it turns out the PTR-91 has no screw on the inside that needs to be undone, and simply removing the buffer would have done the job all by itself.:banghead:

    The cheap plastic stock is ruined, but the wood stock I refinished is nicer anyway.

    Ah but it is illegal to put the refinished foreign stock on the rifle- unless more American parts were added... if they have not been added you will have an illegal gun... like it or not- make sense or not.

    Unless you have an earlier PTR that had an imported buttstock as the original part (other parts being US made and making the gun compliant) then you'd be replacing an imported stock with another imported stock.

    Well you helped me. I wanted to know if there is a way to install a longer buttpad, as the length of pull is a little short for me. And what you have posted shows, that ain't going to happen.

    If you don't mind the looks of a slip on recoil pad, you could have just installed a Kick-Eze small slip on recoil pad.
    It adds about 1 1/2" to the length of pull and makes the recoil a lot more tolerable, especially off of the bench.

    Only if you break the 10 part rule if I understand it right.

    You'd have to count up the number of imported parts.

    On their website they show, at least, the following as being US made:

    Receiver
    Barrel
    Pistol Grip
    Buttstock
    Handguard
    Trunion

    ETA: Found this list on an HK forum, not sure if it's correct but a starting place anyway. They claim there are 9 imported parts on a PTR

    1 bolt
    2 Bolt carrier
    3 Trigger
    4 Sear
    5 Hammer
    6 Trigger houseing
    7 mag. Floorplate
    8 mag. Body
    9 mag. Follower

    HM2PAC,
    You need to know how many imported parts are in the firearm total, I thought the PTR's still used quite a few imported parts. Maybe give them a call and see if they know.

    I have already added 2 other USA made parts that are compliant, therefore I am still 1 part ahead of the game.

    Aluminum handguard.
    Bi-pod mount.

    Both of which are 922 compliant.

    Aluminum handguard, yes. Bipod mount, no.

    It's total foreign parts that are the issue, not US-made.

    We demand proof! :D Pics!

    In that case I'm even on my parts swap-out. I'll call PTR and find out today. I thought the slimline handguard was imported and had the heat flashing removed. Mine melted.

    I'll try to post some pics tonight. The wife has a new camera.

    Onmilo, did you have to shave out the inside of the handguard?

    I called PTR back when and they told me that if ya used the foreign stock ya needed to add two more us made items from the "list"

    I am not sure if the rear stock and fore stock are one item or two?

    any one know?

    I was not being or tryin to be a smart ass but if onmilo or others want to break the law and take the chance so be it...

    I am also curious on how the forend was modified to fit- in case I ever need to fit a set to mine ;)


    Magazines seem easy to mod to be compliant...

    I spoke with PTR-91 today.

    With the addition of the aluminum forend, and the wooden CETME buttstock, my parts count is OK.

    They had to look up my serial # to check which foreign parts it had. Fortunately my trigger group is US made.

    If you got the Cetme stock from CTD then it should come with a Tapco butplate. That is a US part.
