Switching Stocks on PTR 91 / G3

 

When setting up the truck gun project, I purchased two aftermarket stock options. The first was a Choate folding stock, The second and much more expensive was a German Military telescoping stock. If you notice, this version has a larger than “normal” butt-plate.

Not being a expert HK guy or milsurp collector, I can’t actually specify what the names or models are for these stocks. But reading on the internet, there seems to be a strong dislike for the military telescoping format. The main complaint is how small the surface area of the butt plate is. But I did notice that there are TWO options here. And so I did spend the extra cash to grab this when I saw it.

When running some drills and shooting in unconventional positions, once or twice I crawled up on the Choate stock and made contact with my mouth against the rear of the rifle. Not the most pleasant feeling. Yes, when I get time, I will add a few more spacers to the Choate and increase the length of pull.

But in the meantime, I will switch to the longer milsurp stock. Special note, I will probably be adding a Bushnell TRS-25 to  the PTR. The current RDS is an old gun-show mystery scope just to test cheek weld  / eye relief.

    Are either of these better at the end of the day, than the stock buttstock? I find my PTR comfortable, but would like the option to make it more compact…although it doesn’t look like any of the folders do much to that end. I saw what I presume to be a new PTR recently. A true truck gun, no stock, short barrel. I may have to look into it. Around $1100.

      The “Sportsman’s Guide” is running a special on the “C-93” from Century Arms for about $475.-, it is not a PTR91/G3… but it will still put .308 rounds down range at an acceptable minute-of-man level of accuracy. I have thought about picking one up just to have a semi auto .308 beater that I do not have to drop a grand into. The looks are close, and from what I have seen and read about it, I think it would be a fun beater/truck gun with many components being interchangeable.

      • Is the 93 the 556 or 308? I have been thinking about the 556 just for the cool factor. That and NOT having to pay HK prices for a 53.

          I need to say sorry… I got my models confused! Sportsman’s Guide is offering the “C308”, not the C-93. But to answer your question Markey… yes the C93 is in 556, Doh! I have not seen the 93 available for a bit, and I do not know when they will have them again, or how much they may cost. But one thing I am pretty sure of, they are still going to weigh just as much as the .308 rifles! Over 8 pounds… Ooof!

          • No big deal. You just cost me money. I wanted one of those C-93’s for a bit and forgot about it. Now you have put it back in my mind!

            Well, if I am going to be costing you money I might as well go full Jodie on you and ask if I can shoot it when you do get one!

          • But of course!!!!

    • The factory fixed is lightyears better in comfort and function.
