Ptr-32 /52k trunion kit question
Hey guys, was recommended by ghilliebear to order this towards a 52k build i want to do , this kit http://www.hkparts.net/shop/pc/PTR-32-7-62-X-39-Custom-Build-Kit-298p948.htm , well I was reading the details and it seems that it's a 308 receiver from what knowledge I know but it says something about 762x39 inserts that are already installed. Well based upon looking at different sites And did not see any 762x39 inserts ( or what I think would be trunions ) . So being the research type that I am I called up hkparts and the phone was answered by someone other than Adam as apparently he was in a meeting when I called their main number. The guy told me that the 762x39 insert was the welded in paddle mag release but that answer doesn't seem right to me as I would think that Adam would mark it as a 762x39 paddle release. Also what makes the x39 insert different from the 308 trunions or are they they same and just marketed differently.
Ask Ghillie, if he knows, he'll tell you.
Dude is a straight shooter.
I've never seen a commercial X39 but suspect that the inserts are to narrow the mag well to accept the mags. There would need to be a change in the paddle to latch the mags as well. The hardest part of my X39 build was getting the AK mag to fit right.
