which is the better vaule? c308 sporter or a ptr 91

Post by JaxxyFur »

So my local gunshop has a all wood furniture century arms C308 Sporter rifle for about ~$750 around that ball park. I want it but i absolutely do not trust century arms. Im wondering if this is one of their mythical glory guns that is actually decent or if i should save up my money and get a ptr 91 from someplace like atlantic firearms.

for context a c308 i can get at the shop for : ~$750
the atlantic firearms is over double varying in price to about: ~$1500

any recommendation is appreciated!

I have both. My cetme is an older Century build and took quite a bit of tweeking to get running right. I have heard that the new production rifles are better.
I bought my PTR-91 from Buds Guns for a little over 900 shipped. They currently have the GI model for 929 shipped. I believe it to be closest to the original G-3. (It does not have a scope rail).
In terms of quality..... the PTR is way better.
I have seen the cetme on sale for 650 or so, but spend the extra couple of hundred and get the PTR.

Go with the PTR-91. A much better quality receiver and better welds. The scope clamps onto the receiver "walls".
The rifle will be worth much more in the future.
