Building on last year’s successful launch of two MP5 clones, South Carolina based firearms manufacturer PTR is announcing two new models in their production line up. The 9KT is an MP5K clone with a custom handguard, top rail and an end cap capable of accepting slings, pistol stabilizing braces and stocks (mind the NFA, boys and girls). The 9R is an HK94 style clone with a 16.2” barrel, top rail and a fixed stock.
All the parts, save for some polymer molding, are manufactured in-house at PTR’s modern Anyor, SC factory. At the time of this writing, the new guns are headed for distributors, meaning that customers will will be able to place orders as early as the week of this year’s SHOT Show. We’ll be joining PTR for some hands-on range time in a little over a week and will report back with our initial impressions.
So, who’s been waiting for an affordable MP5K?
