Default "Plinking" scope for a PTR91 rifle.

Hi folks.

This Monday I am picking up a PRT91 GI with a Picatinny rail mounted on top. I would like to get a scope for the PTR, but being a neophyte to scopes, I was looking for suggestions. I am looking for a decent scope for target shooting at the local gun range, shooting about 100 to 200 yards. I will be shooting mostly PMC and WPA 308 rounds, so no match rounds.

Thanks in advance!

I'm in the same boat. Picking up my PTR on the 30th. For now I'm going to use my Simmons 3-9x40 scope I was using on my AR15. It worked fine for my AR with no problems, don't know about the stronger recoil with the PTR though. I'll just use it till it wears out and then spend more on a much better scope.

If the rail is not permanently attached you can run the claw mount scopes originally made for the platform. Good quality clear German glass for a decent price. I have one of these on my c93 and I love it.
