Oh happy day, my Lyudmila II finally arrived:


The Imperial PTR91 in all her glory. Stock photo, but that’s the one and we’ll have real ones soon.

So, to Nancy “Stretch” Lugosi and other morons itching to outlaw “scary” guns again, here’s all I have to say:

TOO LATE, YOU MEDDLING MOTHERFUCKERS!

The only obvious modifications to the original G3, one of which it was my distinct pleasure to hump around for about a dozen years overseas, is the bull barrel (which I’m quite pleased with, I never was too fond of the tapered original) and the silly button mag release that I plan to have fixed at the earliest opportunity. It was meant to have a paddle release.

They also put a narrower Navy type grip on her, which suits me just fine. If there was one thing that always nagged me about Lyudmila I, it was that my hands were too small to reach the safety comfortably. Definitely an improvement to a rifle that is hard to improve in any way. They also put a narrow forearm on her, but that’s of little consequence. I plan to slap wood furniture on her soon anyway, since that’s what her predecessor had. Oh yes, I lucked out and got one of the “older” ones issued over there and, besides, I like wood.

Other than that, and the obvious lack of full auto which nobody but an idiot would use on a 7.62×51 anyway unless they just want to waste ammo, she’s pretty much the exact same rifle, which isn’t really all that surprising. It’s made on original tooling, using original blueprints and to exact German milspecs. If there’s a part that will fit a G3/HK91, it will fit this baby, which makes finding parts quite easy.

Now all I need to do is to fire her, which, I’m sure you can imagine, is something I look forward to immensely.

Oh, and as if that wasn’t enough to make today perfect, I just learned that Texas is about to adopt the Castle Doctrine, at long last.

If you’ll pardon me, I need to go do the happy nekkid dance.

    Wow, 7.62….nice big round. Will cost you $$$ to keep that one firing, though.
    Only 7.62 I ever fired was a semi-auto Chinese replica of an AK. It was disgustingly accurate, contrary to what people told me. I was able to group 4 shots into a 5 inch circle at 200 meters using only the barrel site, the first and last time I used the rifle. I’m more of a pistol fan myself…small cal, though. I love the feel of a nice Colt .45, but for my money, my friend’s Baretta is the finest gun I’ve ever fired. It’s a nice chrome Brigadier Inox 9mm. Cheap rounds to recycle.

    Not all that bad, really. Provided you can find some good mil-surp ammo at a decent price which, admittedly, has gotten somewhat scarce as of late.

    But it’s the Final Word on rifle rounds, if you ask me. It makes concealment out of cover, and whatever you hit with it won’t be getting up any time soon.

    And then there’s the nostalgia bit. I was really torn between this one and an AR-15, and it wasn’t just the caliber. But I’ve humped one of those, I’ve never had a malf that wasn’t directly my fault, and it’s got a huge advantage over the AK-47: It’s not only as reliable and durable as the AK, it’s also one heck of a lot more accurate.

    You just can’t beat German engineering.

    But as to the NEXT acquisition (once I scrape up the funds which will most likely take quite a while), it will most definitely be an AR-15. It’s a wonderful rifle in its own right, and no household should be without one. As well.

    Well, Lyudmila is obviously not a carry weapon, mheh, so it’s not like I’m going to forget about the Kimbers and let them gather dust. As to caliber in handguns, I personally swear to .45, but in my opinion the best handgun in the world for any person is the gun that feels good to the owner and is fun to shoot.

    If you love the gun, it will serve you well. Don’t let anybody talk you into purchasing something that you don’t love.

    Well Misha, that is one pretty rifle.

    Not a huge fan of wood furniture on H&K’s myself, I think they look fine with the olive or black…. But it ain’t my weapon :)

    Of course this just makes my recent troubles that much more painful.

    On that note, when Centrefire Systems refunded me for my failed purchase, they also refunded the cost of me shipping it back to them. Which just floored me, being as this was not their fault at all…….

    Be aware that there are NFA issues with installing a paddle release.

    If you drill all the way through for the pin, an unmodified SEF trigger group will fit, and your rifle becomes an unregistered MG.

    Instructions on how to install one without getting bad attention from the BATFE are here.

    Ah… So THAT’S one of the reasons why HK went to the button design and dropped the push pin assembly for the trigger group when they made the “civilian” models. To make full auto lowers not fit. I wish they could’ve come up with a more elegant way of accomplishing that because, while I most certainly DO want a paddle release, I also don’t want to turn my rifle into a potential full-auto version. It’s:

    1) Illegal and

    2) Stupid, unless you really think that you can hit anything with a 7.62×51 on rock’n'roll. Yes, by virtue of my service I HAVE tried, on numerous occasions, and whereas it is most certainly fun, it’s still a ridiculous waste of ammo.

    Nice shooter Sire! :thumbup_tb:

    I myself would not want to shoot something like that. I’m much more comfortable with handguns. M insists that I learn to shoot his Remington 380. He says that if we are going to have guns in the house, then I have to know how to shoot all of them. We went to the range Tuesday and he took the shotgun, but I chickened out trying to shoot it. I’ll save that for a PMS day when the thought of blowing body parts off at close range actually appeals to me. :guns_tb:

    Oh, and to clarify for the benefit of passing libtards about to explode in Outrage™, the thing I find funny is NOT the thought of GFWs being shot. Being shot isn’t funny at all and, besides, the average gun-grabbing GFW isn’t worth the 25 cents. Unless they’re actually , literally trying to grab my gun, that is, in which case they’ll be spending the rest of Eternity regretting their last, stupid decision.

    No, what I find hilariously, rip-roaringly funny is that they’re crapping their Depends over rifles like mine while completely ignoring the fact that it’s what comes out of the barrel combined with the person behind the butt stock that kills people. It has nothing whatsoever to do with the looks of the rifle itself.

    As a matter of fact, if they were truly worried about somebody capping their dumb arses, they’d be a heck of a lot more concerned about your average, bolt-operated hunting rifle. Not only are those things built with nothing but accuracy in mind, a trained rifleman can cycle the bolt at LEAST as fast as he can re-acquire the target.

    Ignorant fools.

    No shit. I can make you just as dead from a lot farther away with my .308 Remington Model 788 and it don’t look nearly as scary.

    If not for My Boyz at the NRA, these rifles would be a fading memory (’cept the stashed ones).

    The rules of engagements haven’t really changed, but the power to penalize the law abiding survivors has been seriously hobbled.

    Unless they’re actually , literally trying to grab my gun, that is, in which case they’ll be spending the rest of Eternity regretting their last, stupid decision.

    …and a round of applause will follow rather than handcuffs and day-room showers.
    The Castle doctrine adjustments:

    The bill will codify that you have “no duty to retreat” from a violent attack if:
    - you are in a place where you have a right to be,
    - if you are not the initial aggressor, and
    - if you are not engaged in criminal activity.

    HB 284 also establishes protection from civil lawsuits if you lawfully protect yourself or your family.

    Stupidity SHOULD be very painful.

    Yeah, but they’re German designed springs and dingles, which means they’ll perform flawlessly with ruthless efficiency :)

    Now me, I’m probably going the rattly-bits-in-a-pressed-tin-box AK-clone route (BCIS fuck-wittery nonwithstanding), for a couple of reasons:

    1. I’m not that great a shot, so I don’t need MOA accuracy. With my eyes, I’m lucky to find the gun, let alone the front sight.

    2. I like rifles to be simple, like me.

    3. I got a bale of 7.62×39 in the house already after the SKS debacle.

    4. It’s a weapon designed for illiterate, semi-trained peasants. I’ve seen AK manuals that are a few panels of cartoons with no words that show you all the basics. This suits my skills level.

    5. There’s so many different version, I can tinker them together till the cows come home, Bubba them up to the nines and generally replace my childhood Lego’s.

    I carried a L1A1 SLR (FN-FAL lookalike) in the military for 20+ years, and my civilian version is like an old friend, reliable and comfortable. Getting on in years, (like me) but it will be shooting accurately long after I am gone.

    If you want to change your import, you need to deal with 922r issues.

    I assume your rifle is one of those Springfield Arms thumbholers … which means that the only US built parts on it are the buttstock, and muzzle brake.

    In order to be compliant, you must not have more than 10 imported parts on the list.

    If you make any changes to your import rifle, you have to immediately become 922r compliant … so you have to get 6 US made major parts ( 7 if you replace the US made muzzle brake ).

    If you buy this, you now have 5 US made parts.

    You will need to add one more part, exclusive of the muzzle brake ( you need to either keep the muzzle brake, bob it off, or replace it with a US made one, or replace a seventh part if you put on a foreign flash hider ).

    That sixth part can be a US made butt stock or forestock, or a US made cocking lever …. or a US made barrel or receiver, or anything else on the 922r list.

    A thermold magazine counts as three US made parts … but having to use special mags is a bad idea.

    Us made parts can be scrounged here,

    and US made flash hiders can be bought here.

    One other note … removing a pinned and welded on muzzle brake is a major PITA.

    It would be easier to just get a US made barrel, and a replacement front sight/triple frame. A replacement barrel, US flash hider, and US lower group will make you compliant immediately.

    Barrel pin removal.

    Pressing out and replacing the barrel once you get the pin out.

    Thanks!

    I got it through the local range gun pusher, who found it after a bit of calling around for the best offer. I forgot to ask which dealer it was, sorry. However, it’s factory new from JLD Enterprises, who bought the original tooling and blueprints/specs from a company in Portugal that had, in turn, bought it from H&K, who ceased production of the HK91 right around the “Brady scary-looking rifle ban”. In other words, if you want a new HK91, the PTR91 is it.

    (It shoots as good as it looks, BTW. Just put two score rounds through it and it shoots as good, if not even better than it’s predecessor. Short range report to follow on the main page shortly, I’m sure :smile1_tb: )

    You forgot to mention that AK ammo (7.62×39) is both dirt cheap and plentiful.

    The AK-47 is a great rifle if you’re looking for a battle rifle that will perform reliably, giving you a lot of shooting fun and enjoyment, and you don’t want to take out a second mortgage. As a matter of fact, it too was on my short list, and if it hadn’t been for nostalgia and longing for “my first battle rifle”, I just might have gotten one.

    Some people bitch about its lack of accuracy, and this is something to keep in mind if you intend to use it as a match rifle but, then again, who in their ever-loving mind WOULD use an AK-47 for shooting matches? It’d be like buying a Ford 150 with the intention to use it in NASCAR racing.

    Even if you’re thinking of it as a SHTF rifle, I assure you that it will be more than accurate enough to do its job. You won’t be trying to pop targets in the head at 500 yards in those situations. And, again, it is extremely reliable, which is exactly what you’re looking for in a hairy situation. Reliable and, as you mentioned, ridiculously easy to operate and maintain.

    Oh, and if you’re looking for that Evil Look™ (and who among us DON’T get a chuckle out of the GFWs of the world pissing their pants?), it’s hard to beat the battle rifle of the Evil Empire™ itself.

    So yes, an AK is a good purchase. I think I see one in my future, as a matter of fact. You get a lot of bang for your buck that way. Just don’t get a Chinese one. There are a lot of perfectly fine Romanian ones out there, and that way you don’t end up supporting the fucking ChiComs.

    It wasn’t THAT bad.

    Yes, DK, it was :wink_ee:

    Does that mean that I’ll never do it again?

    Right… I’m a guy. Who cares if you know it’s going to hurt you if it’s FUN?

    Enjoy yourself, Sire…I will be thinking of you tomorrow at the range, as I fire a pistol. Well, maybe a rifle too, haven’t decided yet. A nice lookin’ most professional piece you have.

    We went to the range Tuesday and he took the shotgun, but I chickened out trying to shoot it. I’ll save that for a PMS day when the thought of blowing body parts off at close range actually appeals to me.

    Actually, Mrs M, you would do just fine. The first gun my wife ever fired in her life was my twelve gauge. And she did just fine. Yes, I am guilty as hell with changing her attitudes about firearms. So if she blew a pot roast outta’ some rapist, fine by me. I bought her a forty-five for her fiftieth birthday. She bought me a Marlin rifle for my fifty-fourth. So we are both happy. One of those days, you know. Yes, they go boom real loud and kick harder firing a slug. But I guarantee you, nuthin and nobody wants to be in the way of that slug……and won’t be for long. You would do fine.

    I guess I just wasn’t in the mind frame for it the other day. He only fired one shot out of it and then handed it to me…and I just shook my head. I’m one of these types that needs to see something being done a few times before trying it myself. I enjoy shooting my XD 9 so much that I have a hard time wanting to try anything else. I’ll get around to it eventually. I go for my CC Class on the 11th…and I know I’ll need a few range days of practice before then, so I may give it a try next week.

    Yes, they go boom real loud and kick harder firing a slug.

    He’s got buckshot in it at the moment. It didn’t seem to kick too bad when he shot it. It’s not the recoil that worries me. It’s just trying to shoot something that’s alot bigger than a handgun. :lol_wp:

    Another accessory that you should grab if possible is one of the .22 conversion kits - cheap practice shooting!

    Here’s where I got mine ($429 shipped, looks brand new):

    Nice! G3’s a fine rifle. Any weapon that pisses off the GFW/Brady Bunch crowd gets bonus points as well.

    Just keep something in mind, Mrs. M, when it comes to dealing with recoil, Weight Is Your Friend. Just think about Newton’s Law of reaction. It’s one reason I like 870 Wingmasters. I’ll carry the extra few ounces of that steel receiver to have the weight there in front of my shoulder when shooting those Dynamit Nobel Rottweil slugs…

    (And this is from someone who’s idea of fun is a couple hundred .458 Win Mags, and an afternoon to shoot them in…)

    M insists that I learn to shoot his Remington 380.

    Fart…that’s a Remington 870.

    Oh, well, different kind of “COOOoooolllll”. I was about to get all freaky about someone else that had a freaky fondness for old Remington pistols…

    Sire, my sincere and heartfelt congratulations on being able to get the rifle you truly wanted. Now, let me ask you, does holding in her hands take you back? I know it does me? Ah, nostalgia. :happy_tb:

    Now, when are you going to add a Mattel special to your arsenal?

    Are you kidding me? Nostalgia BIG time. I was only half kidding in the review post when I mentioned that I could almost hear my old Sar’ Major screaming at me when I took her apart the first time to inspect and clean her.

    Not to mention when I took possession of her and, out of reflex, field stripped her right there on the table (much to my shame, it took me several seconds longer than I used to, but I blame it on her being new and “stiff.” Yep, that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it. Not that Sar’ Major would’ve ever bought it), taking her apart, feeling all of the oh-so-familiar parts, putting her back together, pulling the charging handle and taking aim… Ahhhhh…

    Sorry, got lost in reverie there for a moment.

    And the first real shots were magic. Smell, sound, everything. Just like the bad old days - lol. Only thing was that they’ve improved the recoil mechanism, so it doesn’t kick near as hard. But I’m not about to complain about that. Much.

    The Empress won’t let me sleep with it, however :tongue1_tb:

    Now, when are you going to add a Mattel special to your arsenal?

    Now, I never made a secret of the fact that I covet the AR as well, but I had to choose one. I see an AR in my future somewhere, however, as soon as I can scrape together the dough.

    Not a pink one, though, and absolutely NO flower decals! :wink_ee:

    Murrdock has me hooked on a AR from rock river arms. I just need 800$ :( still slaving for my 480$ for the glock 23c.
