With G3 mags available for a buck a piece I am really leaning towards the PTR-91 how easy is it to install an optic on one of these and what are your options?

Get both.

Get neither and buy an M1A or an FAL.

They're better rifles anyway.

AR10.

The ergonomics on HK's full-size rifles suck donkey balls.

I'm using the Brugger and Thomet lo-profile mount, some medium-height rings, I have pulled off the rear sight as it is useless anyway, and have fitted a Bushnell Elite 3200 10x40 tactical scope with target knobs. I have gotten it to shoot about 2.5 inches on a wobbly bench with milsurp South African (I shot Aussie out of it and got it closer to 2 inches with iron sights!).

I have seen a couple of 1 minute groups using mil-surp. I may be taking the rifle to a 400 yard range tomorrow with handloads to see if I can improve on matters, although I suspect the wind to be a PITA on this deal.

Over 600 rounds and not one FTF or FTE. Dam,ned reliable gun, and more accurate than my Springfield M1A was.

Get that PTR-91 and shoot the crap out of it.

Ammo is cheap,parts are cheap,and the mags are at
the cheapest they've ever been.

Mines somewhere around 1,200 rounds.
If I try ,with port surplus and a scope I get 1.5 inch groups
at 100 yards.

These rifles are a bargain at these prices.

All of my other rifles are in the safe.

I look forward to spending my days off at the range with my PTR.

Oh ,and +1 for the B&T mount ,except I use higher rings so I
don't have to remove the rear sight.

Eventually I want one of the new Eotechs on it instead of the scope.


Do you want a safe queen M1A that your scared to mark up ,or a PTR-91
you can abuse that will work every time ?

A PTR,
THEN
The AR-10

M14, itll never fail to work and theres no silly adjustable gas system to worry about. Clean your piston (and your rifle for that matter) every 1000-2000 rounds or so and youll be fine. Best sights of any rifle on the market, and its AMERICAN.

If you're considering an optic, got with the AR-10.

Or, he could just get the PTR. There's no gas system at all.

M1A is proven and solid. My AR-10 takes a crap once in a while. I've got 1000+ through it.

Thank you all for your opnions , I think that I am going to go with the PTR-91 I just dont know what model If I can get 1.5 in accuracy or better I will go with one o fthe longer guns and set it up with a magnified optic if I cant I will go with one of the shorter ones put an EO-Things or AImpoint on it.

I was doing the same thing and decided in an M1A. The reason being is that I already have a AR for goofing around and if I was going to get a 308 then I wanted one that was accurate beyond the range of an AR. I'll eventually get a PTR for a fun blaster but for a serious battle rifle I think the M1A or M14 beats it hands down.

I've been looking at the Ar-10 myself.
But there are a half dozen to pick from.
