    Any experience here with the Vector V93? Worth buying at this point? I'm strongly considering it over a PTR91, because of ammunition prices.

    Charles, I PMed you about mine.

    I have 4 flavors of HKs (currently for sale). They are: PTR-91, Vector V-51 (8" SBR), Vector V-93, Vector V-53 (8" SBR).

    All have been extremely reliable.

    - Simple, reliable operation
    - Great irons
    - Smooth recoil
    - Folding stocks
    - Mags are cheap (for the .308s)

    - Beats the crap out of brass (for reloaders)
    - Ergos leave some to be desired (a little better than AKs though)
    - PITA to mount optics
    - Mags are expensive (for the .223s)
    - Ugly triggers (Bill Springfield and Williams both can fix this).

    I really like my V-93. All around it's my favorite of all those 4. Very smooth, pretty accurate with irons, and easy to use. If I had to pick one, only, I'd keep the V-93. The PTRs start getting heavy, pretty long, and chews up expensive .308.
