I have a JLD PTR-91 with the regular JLD plastic stock. How durrable is this stock compaired to the real HK stock? I was thinking about getting a real HK stock but I already installed a heavy buffer in the JLD stock and would hate to have to reinstall in a real HK stock if durrability in not a concern? Thank you!

I don't feel the PTR-91 has been around long enough to make an accurate, 'real world' comparison. Unless you plan on bustin' down doors with your rifle butt, I doubt there will be any issues with it's durability.

YMMV


just my .02 ¢

If you saw them side to side you would want the real HK/FMP stock. They have a solid feel to them if you squeeze it . The JLD stocks have a lot of flex to them and are hollow. The HK are hollow also but have the push pin holders whichs give the stock some rigidity (Is that a word?).

I picked up a HK91 A2 stock today, not sure what it is, its marked 911(I think) had kinda a black pebble finish(might have been re-finished) to it, the 2 pin holes at the rear of the stock have no washers(lack of a better word) It also feels very solid(not hollow) something seemed different about the sling mount as well.....can't recall what though

any clue what it is?

Is the 911 mark in the recess for the sling hook?

I mentioned this a several weeks ago and there was only one reply if I remember correctly, but I used some of the expanding foam that is used to weatherproof homes to fill my JLD buttstock. The buffer on these stocks is only held in place by the front screws, the screw that must be installed/removed from the rear of the stock is omitted, so it didn't really hurt anything. The stock doesn't even have the "webbing" inside the stock for the rear screw to fit through, it's just open and hollow on the inside. The stock feels a little more rigid now and doesn't have such a hollow sound. I just removed the buffer and filled it, but I didn't fill it to the very top, there's probably about an inch from the foam to the buffer. ARKAR
