I got my brand new PTR-91 from Atlantic Firearms about two weeks ago and I finally got a chance to post about it. I chose to buy a PTR-91 because of the good feedback I read on its reliability and workmanship. For those of you that don't know, JLD Enterprises makes the PTR-91 with a combination of genuine HK parts and US made ones, manufactured on HK-certified equipment to German military specifications, for 922(r) compliance.
Anyway, here are some pictures of the rifle overall.
Here are some pictures of the receiver and JLD logo.
Here are some of the receiver and JLD logo.
Though they aren’t anything great, here are some targets shot from a bench without a sandbag. Ammo used was Wolf. I used it because it was cheap and good for practice. I think I have to adjust the sights a little, but I won’t know for sure until I take it out again.
The first two are done at 50 yards and the third is at 100 yards.
The purchase process from Atlantic Firearms went smoothly. When emailing Atlantic Firearms, responses were prompt. Also, when I called to place a reserve, the person on the phone was very courteous. The rifle arrived the day after it shipped. The rifle itself feels sturdy and the barrel itself looks nice and heavy. When shooting it, I felt the kick was very manageable. The charging handle was a kind of tough to pull back, but I think that will even out with use. Overall, I am satisfied with my purchase and I plan on customizing it in the future. The first in line is a wooden stock and then probably a wide forend.
Higher res pictures of the rifle itself.
I'd show you a pic of my PTR-91 ,but I spent the
money I was going to get a cam with on my
There's quite a few PTR owners in PA .
During the 80s the HK-91 was really popular here as well.
My most recommended add on ,is a trigger job.
Bill Springfield and Williams Trigger Specialties
IMHO are 2 of the best in the country for HK style weapons.
My most recommended add on is a paddle mag release. RTDS did one for my PTR and its on its way back to me now. I had Williams do a trigger job on my Sringfield Armory SAR3 many years ago and I highly recomend him.
Congrats on your purchase. Thanks for including pics.
Im looking at getting an HK but the prices are very high.What are the differences between the Hk and the PTR91.Educate me.Thx
The biggest difference is price, after that there are enough US parts in it to make it compliant. Aesthetically, I can't really find any huge differences between the clone and real thing. I think what a person wants to buy depends more on their personal preferences. I bought the PTR-91 because it was cheaper than an HK 91 and it is more reliable than a CETME.
I too will be purchasing a PTR91 k+p from atlanticfirearms dot com soon.
I have been hearing mostly pros and very few cons with respect to both the rifle and the company abovementioned.
My question is this, is the barrel fluted, in other words, does it damage the brass so there is not reloading potential?
One thing that I did learn is the receiver is stamped, not milled.
Here is an article, however the picture links are dead.

fluted barrels have NOTHING to do with the damage done to the brass during extraction....not to my knowledge at least
The fluted barrel doesn't do a thing. When the brass is ejected, it hits the side of the port and is left with a ding in the side. I think I have a casing around somewhere if I find it, I may put up a picture.
