    Default Recommend a welder for my new PTR 9C

    So I decided to order a new PTR 9C from Atlantic this morning. Originally I was going to obtain a Zenith due to the fact those come with a front sling loop and is non railed. If PTR had this as an option, I would have gone with the PTR, as the quality of their products are fantastic. I have several PTR 91's, and pre-ordered a PTR/C93 through Buds. Anyway, as it turns out, my pre-ordered Zenith fell through, hence the reason I ordered the PTR today.

    I can live with the rail, but I did order the F style weld on ambi sling attachment plate today. Looking for recommendations on somebody that could weld this on, and refinish the front sight block. I don't know why PTR omitted any type of front sling attachment points, and hopefully in the future this issue will be resolved. Not all of us like single point slings.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Off the top of my head... bet Jeff Walters (PCS) could help you out with that.

    I'd also try Zenith. They have a 15% off for refinishing any roller gun till months end. They will quote before you send it in.

    Not familiar with the PTR's handguard there (I think they're butt ugly), not sure how they are with the hanger/attachment method but maybe one of those "Ambi sling pins" with the loop would work, and not require any welding/work done?

    Edit: Oops, reread it...you already ordered the weldment. Maybe still valid suggestion if whoever you decide to have the work done by is backlogged?

    The money you'd save him ordering one of those sling pins, I would eat the cost of the weld-on sling loop for the front tower.

    I've seen these before, but I much prefer a regular push pin. There's also a local smith here that can attach the weldment, but I don't have any good photo's of the factory HK weld job. A search didn't yeild any pictures.
