Since i have figured out I will never have the $$$ to own a authentic HK G3 or 91. I came across a clone called called the PTR91 seems to be a good built clone for a third of the hk price. Anyone have any pros/cons about this unit?

the look solid to me and easy to customize. I mean the G3 has been around for 50 years and still used by many military forces so they must have done something right

PTR experience

I've sold a few of the PTRs with good feedback from the owners. Looking at one in-hand it appears to be an exact clone of the HK with very good stamping & bending work. The bolts moved smoothly with no binding and the finish was top notch. I haven't shot a PTR personally but if it performs as good as it looks & feels then it should be a winner. I'm not that wild about the AR stock retrofit and would personally opt for the HK retractable stock. It would be heavier and cost more but considering the strength benefits of the steel rails and the recoil of the semi-light .308 that weight could be a plus. I think you'll like it being HK 91s are in the $2k + range.

Buy with confidence. The PTR 91 is a high quality piece. If you look on their website they also have plans the make a copy of the STG 44 in the original 8mm kurz!

The original company (JLD) bought H&K's old tooling used to produce their rifles in Portugal. So a PTR is the closest thing to an actual HK.

I had a PTR 91SC got it used for 950.00 it was built like a tank, the fit and finish was first class all in all it was a good looking rifle an a ok shooter averaging 2-3 MOA with South African surplus, mags use to be cheap you could get like 25 mags for 35 bucks not really sure what they cost now. The early PTRs had an issue with the sizing of the chamber and too-few flutes in the chamber which caused problems with ejection when using certain ammo.

I like the way they shoot! The trigger takes some getting used to. There is something about the aura of it, and popping that charging with the left hand and sending the bolt home.

A friend here has had one issue with his. The weld broke on the forward part of the charging handle tube. This didn't disable the weapon, but what it does do is not allow it to cam the rollers out of engagement. What that means is that trying to cock it for the first shot of the magazine is akin to trying to pull a crossbow string back by hand(I'm exagerating slightly). You're having to overcome the force of those roller locks. Once it's cocked that first time it'll shoot the whole mag. No quick mag changes though until that is fixed.
