Help with a PTR91
Hey, I have a PTR 91 with an "A000XX" serial number meaning that it was made by JLD enterprises during the great assault weapons ban, it lacks a flash hider and the coating is crap. Why do I have it you ask, I got it for 700 dollars where as the brand new ones are upwards of 1000.
Here is the problem...
IT WILL NOT CYCLE...the first mag I ran through presented this problem, Every time I pull the trigger the weapon will fire but the bolt will jam in the forward or closed position, I have to remove the mag and place the butt of the rifle on the ground and apply my body weight to the charging handle. I did have it successfully cycle once but I think that was a fluke, I took it to a gunsmith and he said that he thinks that the chamber where the fluting is contained was drilled too deep or perhaps the fluting has worn down over time.
Does anybody have a contrary or supporting opinion.
And if this is indeed true what do i need to do to solve this situation, do I need a new barrel and if I do does anybody have any ideas on what to get and where to buy one.
Thanks in advance.
