    Default PTR 9CT or 9KT welded rail removal

    Has any one cut their welded rails off the top of an PTR 9CT or 9KT?

    And if so is the recoil / scope lug under the rail?

    And can you post any pictures of one with the rail removed?


    Thanks

    It’d be great if they made some without the rail. I wouldn’t ever consider buying one unless they made them w/o a rail. Isn’t that what they already do? Have 10 different variants available, with one being no rail. GARY

    4 reasons why I went the PTR route:
    1. USA made, no need to worry about 922r when you form 1.
    2. US manufacturer that I can call if there is a problem. Not an importer, if there is no supply to replace your defective gun, you’re SOL.
    3. Steady supply from a company that is in good standing (I know that can change, just not at this time).
    4. Rail is already there and that I don’t have to buy down the road.

    The rail is likely done as a cost/time saver. Depending on the tooling for their flats, I tend to doubt they have a properly formed top rib and properly milled scope mount tabs. The rail takes care of both of them. So while it can be done, it may not be asthetically pleasing. Also I've never owned a PTR 9mm, but depending where the serial is, if its just on the rail it may need to stay on for legal purposes. I would hope they put in on the top of the receiver as well but I cannot say for sure

    A few people have done it, the ones that I've seen people say they did it to did have the top rib under the rail. That being said if you want a gun without the rail buy from someone else if possible. The cost to refinish the gun correctly plus the time to clean it up will not make it cost effective.

    They bought lsc tooling.... no issues with the top spine, unlike sw flats
