My PTR was messed up too. I got mine in august. It was the extractor. They fixed it and sent it back within a week. I love that rifle.

I bought one of those 2 years ago and haven't had any problems with it in the 2000 rounds or so Ive put through it so far. So now that you got the manufacturing screw up fixed it should last you for quite some time. However if you plan on trying to reload don't put a muzzle brake on there; it made the amount of brass that looked salvageable go from about 20% to 0%. Overall though it is my absolute favorite rifle to shoot!

Happy Shooting!

Had mine, July 2016 built, put about perhaps, well, 300 rounds though it, haven't shot it as much as I wanted, but haven't ever had a problem

Tula 308 steel case, MEN 1985 brass, and even a bunch of reloads made from 30-06, 8mm mauser, and .243 brass, no issues feeding or ejecting, definetly a good rifle for the price.

I reload almost all of the brass from my PTR. The few flute marks and dings don't effect the brass to any measurable effect. Also I fitted a port buffer which made things even better.

I have owned three,still have one, never a problem with any of them. I shoot surp ammo, and never expect to find brass, because I know it's in the next county. But on the rare occasion that I find some brass, it looks like Thor himself unleashed a wrath of punishment
upon it that can only make the me glad I'm not trying to reload it.
I'll always have at least one, I just like them.

A port buffer will cut down the toss of the ammo to a couple of feet.

My PTR does not like steel mags for some reason. Shoots from aluminum mags 100%

I have a PTR 91 with a 16 inch bull barrel and a Century C308 with a 18 inch barrel basically a Cetme. Funny thing is they have been solid performers. The C308 is not as accurate as the ptr but neither have had a hickup. Now for the funny part I have a 1982 HK German 91 and it has been rather hit or miss... I have had rare FTF as well as extractor issues. Probably all do to my bad luck , the HK just doesn't like me. I also have a claw mount with has never fit on the PTR. But fits on the HK of course and fits (although not well ) on the C308.

One of my dream rifles since the dawn of time has been the HK PSG-1. It was around 9 thousand back when I first heard of them. Now I would probably cringe at the cost.

Anyway enjoy the PTR! I honestly feel they are about as close to a HK you can get without paying the price and their quality is really dead on.. And they are good people!

I bought my GI directly through PTR last year. Easy to deal with and the rifle's a great shooter.
