In this episode of TFBTV, James reviews the new PTR CT9 roller-locking pistol with an SB Tactical Brace. This is a high-quality, US Made MP5-style carbine that costs less than an HK MP5 parts kit. So how does it compare to its German ancestor? See today on TFBTV.

“After years of rumors and speculation, roller-delayed carbine fans can breathe a sigh of relief: PTR is finally announcing the release and consumer availability of the PTR 9C and PTR 9CT. The Aynor, South Carolina team spent years perfecting the design of the new gun that is built true to the original intended design. And it shows: the build quality is extremely solid and refined, with subtile tweaks that make it uniquely PTR. The package will ship in a marked hard sided case, two magazines a single point sling and a sight adjustment tool. The best part? Mass production starts this week, with delivery to distributors only a few short weeks away.

TFB spent several hours with the PTR team, including the CEO Stephen Farkas. Together they have made a massive investment in the rebirth and refacing of the PTR brand. Working closely with local and county government, an Aynor area trade school and a dedicated workforce, they are transforming the company into a real powerhouse with a focus on systemic quality assurance from start to finish. All this is to say that the PTR 9C and PTR 9CT is being released now because it has been tested and proven to perform as advertised.

Of course, the logical questions remain: can we expect additional models and configurations? The answer is yes, but the PTR team is playing it close to the chest. Right now they are focused are bringing a high quality product to market at a value price point.”

    James, you called it a rifle twice. It's a pistol right; which falls under the pistol carry laws of whichever state you live in? If so, I'm assuming there is no $200 tax involved with having the "arm brace/stock" on there.

    Interesting but overpriced, unless you own a full auto sear. The Zenith/MKE is made on real HK machines, and it's only $200 more. PTR would have had something if they'd have priced it in the $1300 range, but at $1700, since most of us will never own a full auto sear pack, I'd rather have something made on the actual HK machines for $200 more.
