This new rifle is a HK style G3 that fires the 7.62x39 and uses AK mags. It is recamended to use the Bulgarian polymer mags. It looks to be interesting. From what I read accuracy is slightly better than a standard AK. You have better iron sights to start with. This particular model comes with some rails to mount stuff on if you so desire. Uses the same roller locked system as it's big brother. From what I understand it was an actual HK design from during the Cold War. The thinking was that they could use the enemies magazines in their rifle. Not a bad idea in my opinion. I figure the cost will be in $1200 range as that is what a PTR-91 runs for a base model. It's available with the telescoping stock as well.

For accuracy, buy an AK and save your money.

The latest batches of PTR-91s have shown up with barrels from a new manufacturer. Poor and inconsistent chamber fluting, and frequent malfunctioning have plagued the latest batch. This is a complete reversal from the previous great range reports on these .308 guns.

Seriously, if you're considering spending many hundreds of dollars on one of these rifles, spend five bucks on the magazine. It's the Hustler magazine of the evil black rifle and machine gun world... pure gun porn!

The PTR32 worked well with 2 synthetic mags, but I had problems with a few other mags. I also had a pretty bad problem with 2 different mags where the bolt head got hung up on the ejector lever. The ejector got out of the groove in the bolt head and bound up the gun. What is the problem-is something out of spec?

The article I read did recamend the use of the Bulgarian polymer mags. Maybe the ability of those mags to more easily seat into the action and mesh themselves with the moving parts. Kind of like valve seating.
