PTR91 Help - Thanks.

Post by Ironmike57 » Tue Apr 30, 2013 6:55 am

I am new to the forum and this is my first post. I own a PTR91 rifle and I was looking for some help with the gun. I contacted N4KVE and asked him if he would be interested in helping me re assemble the rifle and give me some operating tips. Gary invited me to WPB within one hour after receiving my note. He put the rifle back together for me and taught me so much about it. And he did not charge me a dime !

I am liking this forum.

Many thanks Gary.

Regards,

Mike Hamel

In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

Once again you've shown your willingness to go above and beyond to help those less knowledgeable than you. [smilie=pdt_xtremez_30.gif] I don't know what we'd do without you.

I wasn't trying to be sarcastic, just referring him to youtube for assembly/disassembly videos

a sarcastic answer would be something like " you shouldn't own it if you don't know how it works and can't put it back together " [smilie=back.gif]

terse response that gets you where you need to go is better than no response

For what it's worth, Gary helped me out also when I had some questions about my CETME when I first got it.

I'd bet Kmags had his hands on the CETME on my workbench right now , someone attempted a paddle mag release and chewed into the receiver shelf that holds the TG in place ....

well looks like a Kmags grinder job to me, I've seen his special work up close and first hand [smilie=011.gif]

I did my Youtube research. It was a fit problem. I still cannot get my original stock back on - even with Gary. I am using the folder and it works just fine. Good enough for now.
