    Thinking about getting a PTR91 GI model, what are your thoughts? Owners of a PTR91, what common mods have you done? Should I spend another $300-$400 and just get an AR10? Or should I spend another $600-$700 and buy a Springfield M1A? Or is the PTR91 a good rifle for the money?

    Just moved out of my parents house after graduating college, looking to invest in a battle rifle before I enlist as an officer in the marine corps. These are the ones I have looked at just wondering if anyone can share their experience. I have enough money to buy any of them but obviously the...

    A local pawn shop has a Remington Model 788 in 308 winchester for around $500. Is a Remington Model 788 worth $500, or should I make the guy a lower offer? The magazines on the Model 788 rattles something terrible. Another pawn shop in Newton Texas has a Remington 700 for $500. I offered the...

    I traded my tricked out Remington 700 for a PTR-91 GI model. I've wanted an HK-91 since childhood, so this is a long time dream. I've ordered 15 mags, two mag pouches, and a cleaning kit from Cheaper than Dirt, a sling from Robert RTG, and a case of Tula .308 from Grab a Gun. I'll report back...

    I made another thread on the MSR a few days ago, but there's some new models coming out aswell, several aimed at the mil-spec purist perspective, a couple SBRs, and of course, my favorite thus far, the MSR. Also, it is confirmed that PTR has redisgined the PTR32 in 7.62x39 soviet. It will...

    :D: This is a brand spanking new product improved Russian Dragunov. These are quite probably superior in accuracy to the original military issue dragunov. These are 7.62x54 guys!:D:

    Ok this is my first rifle, I want an all around multi purpose.. I am thinking of springfield squad scout or ar style 7.62. I just want a rifle that will be a combat defensive weapon as well as a weapon that I could use to knock down a deer if needed. I would like to hear from people who have...

    My question is certainly one that's been asked before, however the search function is weak and I didn't find it by flipping back a page or two. So bear with me... What is an inexpensive, legitimate option for a MBR(main battle rifle) that is NOT an AR? At this point in my life a 1300 dollar...

    If your ONLY two choices for a personal AR/MBR (gotta cover your bases for the nit-pickers) were the Armalite AR-10 16" Carbine or the PTR91 Squad Carbine 16" which would you choose and what would be your decision factors?

    My wife is wanting a "Real" rifle. Not an AR mind you, but an all-purpose, hunting and defense rifle. The spec: .308/7.62X51 caliber Under 8 lbs. Semi-auto preferred, bolt maybe 10+ rd mags. 18" barrel preferred, 16" maybe able to take a scope So far the only one I have found that seems...

    Ok, so for the past few years my MBR has been a converted saiga 7.62x39. Which in it's own right isn't a bad thing at all. I love AK's. The design just works. All be it a some what stolen design. I am pretty hardcore into weapons history. So seeing where all modern select fire magazine fed...

    Ok simple question.... Who here has an Enterprise Arms Fal? Not a kit that someone built on an enterprise reciever, an actual enterprise arms built factory fal. If you have a factory built enterprise fal, sound off and let me know what you think. Thanks. Please not looking to hear about dsa.

    Iv been told that i should not put a 'regular' scope on a FAL because the rifle will damage it when fired a lot. Does anyone here have any experience with using a scope on a FAL ?

    I'm currently trying to decide on a MBR. Initially .308 was the only caliber I considered, and from there it was the typical M1A, FAL, PTR, Saiga debate. Now I'm backtracking a bit and wondering if 7.62x54R might offer some more options. My initial budget is limited to $1000, and I had been...

    So, I was quoted today for two different PTR 91's. The squad/scout version with a top rail and a railed handguard for 1399, and the same version without the two rails on it for 1199. I've never bought a PTR before but this seems a little pricey. I think i could swing it right now, but was...

    Someone suggest a good quality red dot scope for a DS Arms SA58 FN/FAL, which is intended to be a long term SHTF survival rifle. Price is a factor here, so lets say something less then $200. The scope has to be weather proof, so that when I am deer hunting in adverse weather I dont have to...

    Lets say that I have a "friend" and this friend wants to add some modifications to his DS Arms SA58 FN/FAL. What would be some good mods to add to the rifle? The first thing is a scope mount. The rifle is just a standard SA58 with no rail or scope mount on the dust cover. From what I was...

    I have been thinking about picking up a CETME. Does anyone have any direct experience with one? I don't know anybody who has owned or shot one. Your comments/advice are greatly appreciated.
