Just got this last week. JLD PTR-91T.
Added a wide forearm. Bipod on the way. B&T scope mount on the way.

First one I have seen in green - looks sweet. Hope you have as much good luck and fun as I have with mine!

Wow, nice looking piece.

Ya know, that pic is enough to make me want one now.
What is the price on those things, with the wide forearm/b&t scope mount?
Link Posted: 9/16/2005 8:13:47 PM EDT
18 inch barrel, or is this the short one?

I keep getting 'em mixed up.

Wow, that looks nice.

I might have to get one and turn my 91 into a safe queen.

That's the 18". The short one can be spotted by looking at the wide handguard. If the bipod grooves go back to the receiver, it's the 16" version. You got those inches of space like the pic here, and it's the 18".

I've had my PTR since May and I still haven't shot it. Soon, soon...

Very nice.

The rifle cost me $760 and the forearm was $60. The B&T mount runs $125 from DSA.

All total still a world cheaper than a German Made 91. Just as nice if not nicer IMHO.

I got some steel mags instead of the light aluminium one that came with it. I like the steel mags better. I do not plan to hump this thing farther than my truck to the bench so weight is not a problem for me.

Cheers

Maybe a dumb question, but what's the difference between the PTR91 and PTR91T? Just the color of the furniture?

You got it. TF I guess stands for "Tropical Furniture". I would have called it the PTR-91G for "Green". But what the hell TF works as well.

V-E-R-Y Sweet!

Makes me think I need a Big Brother for my "K-FP"

Hi VonOnken,

Did you check your US part count before swapping out the standard hanguard with the wide one? The standard handguard is US made and the wide forends that JLD sells are non-US. I recommend that you check your hammer and sear to see if they say JLD....otherwise you might have a legal issue on your hands. The PTR-91's that I have seen with the standard handguards have relied on the handguards as one of the parts to meet the "magic number" that may have recently changed but it is probably worth checking.

Checked at purchase and hammer and sear are US made. Part count on my rifle is A OK. Thanks for the concern. Good call though. Some people might miss that.

After owning the original PTR-91 in post ban configeration with slim forearm and crowned barrel i was highly impressed with the gun until JDL released the new K model. The PTR-91K with 16" inch barrel is one nice well balanced rifle and the new shorter design give this popular G-3 clone a newer and nicer look.

Its almost like having a custom HK-93 rifle envelope with the power of 308 Winchester is way to cool. I will be taking the 91K out this weekend and sighting the beast in with field sights and that weird drum sight tool. The B&T low universal mount will be aquired shortly and my EoTech 551 or a Luepold Vari III 1.5x6 scope will complete the package for ground varmits and coffee cans....Good to go.....

How are the triggers on these JLD rifles?
Link Posted: 9/22/2005 5:25:09 PM EDT
The standard 10-15 lbs pull trigger But it works

Ok... who does trigger jobs!

very nice

Bill Springfield has a reputation for working magic on HK triggers at a good price. i want to get mine done, but I don't want to send my trigger pack out (and be without my gun for a while).
Link Posted: 9/23/2005 8:22:46 PM EDT
I am one lucky SOB. It turns out that Bill Springfield lives less than 2 miles from me. I emailed him and arranged to have him do some work on my trigger pack. He said I could drop it off and pick it up later the same day. VERY COOL!

I will post a review ASAP when I get it back!

Where in Colorado did you get this? I was looking to buy one, but have not seen a JLD for anywhere near $760.

I'm guessing Jensen Arms

Too funny, change out the heavy barrel to a standard HK profile unit, and your rifle is a exact copy of my FMP (even down to the shinier butt stock and pistol grip compared to the forearm sheen).

One little hint though, insert the take down pins from the non-ejection side threw to the ejection side. With the way have have the pins now, you have the protruding ends on the operator side of the rifle (read you want the pins flat sides on the operator side so when you move, you don't snag one of the pin springs on your face). The forearm pin really doesn't matter on the direction, but it is nice to have them all the same direction.

I am a lefty. The pins are the way I like it for me but my buddy said the same thing.

I did get it at Jensen Arms. Specialty Sports in Colorado Springs carries them but they charge full suggested retail. So I went to Loveland and saved a bundle.
