New Toy

Picked up a new toy for the range.
Its a PTR 91 A1, a clone of a HK 91, The fit and finish is excellent
Hopefully it will be as reliable as an original
Unfortunately the HK is a named assualt weapon in CT, so you can only get the clones
Haven't shot it yet.
Not sure if I will keep the irons or put on a red dot or scope.

Nice looking. Let us know how tight it shoots.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

It shot very well. Had a couple of FTF on the first round from cocking lever tube being tight. The rifle should break in nicely. Other than that it ran flawlessly

I was shooting at a 12" plate at 100 yards which was no problem off the bipod. But shooting standing was more difficult due to the weight.
I'm used to a 5 lbs lever action and can hit the plate all day with the irons. This one is 9 lbs and my little arms got tired quickly

Lots of fun, will probably put a red dot on it though

Its a .308 so its effective range it a good distance. Unfortunately the range I go to is only 100 yards. so no need for a scope.

Free hand is more fun, especially with multiple steel plates
If I can do it with the AR, USC and lever, then it should only take some practice with the .308
And Practice is fun

Nice pick up!

Yeah, once you get used to the extra weight, shooting free hand won't be a problem.

Practice, practice, practice!

Nice!
My buddy has a HK-91 / G3 clone, but I don't remember the brand. The only thing I didn't like about it is the that handguard didn't insulate very well from the barrel heat. Definitely a fun gun though. If you truly find the weight to be a problem, but like the .308, you might want to look into an AR-10. A little lighter, and probably a little more accurate too.

20 rounds of .308 tracers makes a helluva fireworks show!

Shit you must have great eyes. I need a scope at 100 yards.
