I was in Cabellas today , they had a PTR . It wasnt bad , looked less “complicated ” than an FAL , but a lot heavier . Front heavy , specifically .Never fired one , so the jury is still out . Then again , the FAL felt heavy at first also , until I got used to it . The FAL seemed better balanced tho . For what it is , the PTR is a reasonable price , I like that a lot . The one I looked at was going for about $850 , that was with cabellas high mark up .
