Nice shooting! Those PTR-91s keep enticing me.
FC was understating the case. Your spotter was confusing me with: "his left", "your right." "Miss" (when it's a hit), etc.
I was being "diplomatic".
Wasn't sure if the spotter was a close relative or a close friend?
I also wasn't sure if the spotter had ever "spotted" before, either.
Ehh, I don't want to sound too critical or mean here,...don't need, or want to. He was trying, and that's more than many folks will do. I just think you'd have been able to walk those rds. in much better with the proper dope from your spotter. But heck, I haven't been to the range in a crazy long time, so, more power to the both of you! Make some more of those vids using the PTR-91
and your Type 56
! I like the split screen shot with the shooter and target in same time action, seeing the hits. Interesting!
Again, heck of a nice range too! The one and only public range around here is unattended, has 25yd. Pistol, (2 lanes), 50yd. Pistol, Rifle, (2 lanes), and the 100yd. Rifle, (2 lanes). All with ambidextrous concrete benches and paper targets supplied free of charge. So your range is a show piece compared to anything around here!One
of the reasons that I went with the PTR-91
receiver for my Cetme
kit build was the ability to use the HK
-style rear sights. Either the standard G-3 rear sight or the 1200 M sight like you're using. Cetme's rear sight is very
basic and I wanted something better for iron sights.
Do you have the clamping HK
-made or HK
-style scope mount for your PTR-91
? The original HK mount is well worth it, albeit pricey. Returns to zero and you can mount pretty much any good scope that you want to mount. I used a Leatherwood Counter-Sniper
scope w/rangefinder, level, etc. I would, however, get and utilize the brass deflector that HK
makes for the G-3/HK-91/PTR-91
style rifles. Installs easily and stays installed. It drops the brass much closer, doesn't smack your optics, and refrains from reshaping your brass with the large dent that it has a habit of making along the side of the case. The resulting fluting marks are just there, can't be helped with the G-3
barrels. I've got sacks of once fired brass with the fluting marks. Never tried to reload them. Not sure how much difference that would make or effect it would have, if any? Everyone says they can be reloaded, just haven't tried.
Thanks again for posting the PTR-91
thread! Post up a few more close-up pics, when you get the chance. They made nice, reliable rifles from all accounts I've heard on them. Now, the Century made guns were somewhat of a crapshoot, IIRC? (their Cetme
's and whatever they designated their HK-91
-style kits w/receiver-built rifles?). I heard they had some issues with feeding, chambering, a bit of everything could go wrong. firstchoice
