PTR 9K lineup expanded with new 5.8-inch barrel version (VIDEO)

South Carolina-based PTR has die hard MP5 enthusiasts excited with the expansion of the 9K line. The company has added three new models and a California compliant version.

PTR national sales manager Bill Demers explained the new gun is the next evolution in the series. “This is my favorite to shoot, and whenever I get a chance to train, the R is my go to,” he said, adding the design is the “regular,” meaning a standard 9mm with a 16-inch barrel. The R also comes in a California compliant version.

The 9KT features a 5.8-inch barrel with a 3-position lower receiver, which makes it ready for a full-auto trigger pack. While the heavily regulated feature maybe out of reach for most civilians, law enforcement agencies with aging MP5 sub guns will welcome the news.

The PTR 9KT has already started shipping to stores across the country. Both the 9K and the 9KT listed at $1,899.
