I was looking over CDNN's 2012-2 product catalog when I noticed a PTR-91 with wood buttstock and handguard for sale on page 32. Suddenly, the PTR has caught my interest since I'm a sucker for this rifle with wood furniture. Before seeing the PTR, I was actively looking for one of the cast stainless "1 of 500" Century Limited Edition CETMEs, but watched one of these sell on Gunbroker for $800 + shipping yesterday. Before that, the last Century LE sold for around $735 + shipping IIRC. So perhaps these prices are a sign of things to come and the thought of spending just $200 more for a new rifle with the look I want is becoming a more attractive proposition. Newer is better right? Sometimes.
My question is this. How does the PTR stack up against the Century LE CETME? I've read nothing bad about the LE and the consensus seems to be that this is the best version of this rifle that Century produced (excluding the early Portuguese made rifles Century sold). On the other hand, I've heard both good and bad about the PTR, though not specifically the wood furniture model, though I assume it is like any of their other models with just the wood being the differentiator. I know PTR now offers a lifetime warranty on all their models, but I'm curious if they have better quality control now and have worked out their issues.
I guess a third option would be for me to find an earlier JLD version of the PRT-91 and slap some wood on it, but that would cost more than the current PTR with wood being sold by CDNN.
