No, I haven't changed my mind. I need the muzzle flash out of my scope & I hope that surefire will work cuz I ordered it :?:
I guess I could use those tracers to see where I am hitting at extended ranges (if they have the same flight characteristics) :ponder:

Unfortunately, the nearest Cabela's is about 200 miles away :wall:

They do have an online store.

Its not that important to me. If I was near a Cabela's or going to Salt Lick City, I would get box or two. As is, meh - I'll just keep practicing at 50-400yd as I can see where those are going without tracer rounds.

Well in an effort to keep the ptr-91 thread count down to one, I am resurrecting the dead! I have the ptr-91 msg rifle and would like to use a single point sling with it (I just like 1 point slings). I am honestly thinking about just putting a heavy duty zip-tie around the thinnest point of the stock and using it to attach my favorite one pointer (it has an hk style clip).

Do you think a heavy duty zip-tie will be durable enough? Any other suggestions?

Rapier, I know you've got the same rifle. What are you using in terms of a sling and do you have any input?

Thank you all in advance!

Mine doesn't have a sling yet. I am still looking (half-heartedly) for one I like. But I was going to go with a 2 point sling when I did. I'm too cheap to just order it, I just look around at stores when I remember to look...

Zip ties, around points, are not as mobile and when they stick, they will wear very quickly. Try paracord for a low-cost alternative, or a combination of both.
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
The shooter will always matter more than the gear ever will.
Stop relying on others to do the work for you.
Shoot more, worry less.

Just got rifle back from local smithy. Had the barrel turned down & muzzle brake installed. OAL of the rifle is now 44". BTW, muzzle brake is the Surefire 211C

Will try it out this weekend

Sent my trigger off to Williams Trigger Specialties & just got it back.
Just from fiddling with it here, big improvement.
From the factory 8lb (according to them) to 5 pounds "normal" shooting & less than half the travel length.
"Set" mode is 2.5lb & virtually no travel length.

Now to load up some ammo for testing.
The school of cosmetology has graciously donated one of they hair cutting practice heads for this purpose. :laugh: We were thinking cranberry jello & tannerite on the inside :D

I went out & tested the new trigger, accidentally bump fired it once - oops. At least I hope that was bump fire... :huh: 2nd shot went WAY high but luckily it still hit the backstop.

Trigger is officially much improved!

Weird thing is, I sighted it for my 150gr VMax reloads. But factory 150gr FMJ were hitting 4" low at 100yd. WTF? I understand a shift but that much?
