PTR-91 .308 Battle Rifle - U.S. Made HK-91/G3



PTR-91 rifles are U.S. manufactured HK-91 Heckler & Koch rifles. PTR stands for Precision Target Rifle. Not merely a clone, the PTR 91 was developed with actual tooling from an H&K licensed G3 arms plant. The G3 is the full automatic version of the HK-91. PTR-91 rifles retain all major design features of the well-engineered German H&K G3 roller-delayed blowback design found in everything from the world famous H&K MP5 submachine gun, to belt-fed general purpose machine guns like the HK-21, and even highly accurate semi-auto sniper rifles such as the H&K PSG-1 and MSG-90. The roller-delayed blowback design is superior in durability and reliability to the gas-operation of other popular rifles such as the AR-15, M1A, and AK-47.

In 2006, PTR-91, Inc. of Farmington Connecticut purchased JLD Enterprises and is now the current manufacturer of the PTR 91 rifles. Over the past few years, further improvements and refinements have resulted in the PTR 91 being recognized as better than even the original HK 91 rifles. One such improvement is that PTR 91 rifles come with .75” diameter Match grade 4 groove barrels with a 1:12” right twist.

If you have not heard of the PTR-91 before, it's likely due to the power and influence of a few politically connected special interest groups, who want Americans to only buy AR-15 and M1A rifles, the same few groups which managed to get the excellent HK-91 rifles banned from U.S. citizens and import into the United States in the first place -- two decades ago in 1989. In banning Americans from owning HK-91 rifles, the U.S. government was used to drive the superior Heckler & Koch rifles out of production at a time when their demand was surging.

Thanks to the efforts of JLD Enterprises and PTR-91, Inc in bringing H&K tooling to the U.S. for manufacture, thus bypassing the legislation of corrupt politicians, Americans now have the opportunity to buy HK-91 rifles again!

Well, if I buy one now, I'm definitely not going to your website to buy one.

That won't be hard to do, since I don't have a website and don't sell firearms.

Duh.

Whee! The conspiracy theory of world domination! The sky is falling! The oceans are burning! We're doomed, I tell you, doomed!
