    Default PTR 9CT – chopping the front sight ring will void your warranty

    I sent the following Email to PTR:

    I recently purchased a PTR 9CT. Will I void the warranty if I cut off the top half of the front sight ring?



    Edward Salvi at PTR Customer Service Manager replied:

    Yes, that will void your warranty.

    I agree... dumb!
    However; I wonder what the response would have been if your email stated... "I would like to have a qualified gunsmith modify the front sight hood of my PTR 9CT to facilitate the use of a low profile optic. I trust doing so will not void my warranty, as the modification will only be cosmetic and will not affect its operational integrity or any other components of the firearm in any way."

    Well now we know that it's that top site ring support that keeps the whole gun together.

    Any manufacture will tell you that a modification like that to a gun would void warranty . Some will even void the warranty with the installation of a bullet button or mag catch device.

    Just playin devils advocate here;

    "Bubba, go get me that hack saw. I'm choppin off the top of this rang"...….moment's later, and 3 fewer fingers.

    "Chester....this dang thing won't hold a group worth sh#t. Let's send it back and get our money. This thang sucks, and it's under werenty."

    And there in lies your "warranty".

    They may even do it for a nominal charge in their custom shop.

    Probably true. Makes me wonder how many of us actually keep a roller-locked firearm "stock" and subsequently "under warranty"? Think about it... Stock, forearm, F/A carrier, trigger housing, trigger group, barrel, paddle mag release, etc.
