I passed the 200 round mark this week with my PTR 91 GI rifle. So, I followed the instructions in the owner's manual (disassemble, clean, lube, reassemble, dry fire) to check the bolt gap. The gap is .016". :smile:

Perfect! Mine is at .019 before firing the first rounds.

It will be interesting to see if it changes, and if so, which way, after you break it in.

Should close up a bit. Hopefully somewhere around where yours is at now.
