Aynor, S.C. – June 27, 2014 – On Monday, June 30, 2014 at 11:30 AM representatives from PTR Industries will present Governor Nikki Haley with one of the first South Carolina Commemorative rifles that they have created to honor their new home state.
This special presentation will be held at the PTR Industries facility located at 101 Cool Springs Drive in Aynor, S.C. Governor Haley will tour the facility and the presentation ceremony will follow.
Due to security precautions, all members of the media are being asked to contact Bob Grabowski at PTR Industries at (843) 358-2222, if you plan to attend. All attendees and members of the media will be required to sign in.
The Model 91-SC COMM rifle will be stamped with an outline of the state, with a Palmetto tree and crescent moon in the center of it. This rifle is PTR’s first nickel-tone model with a welded scope mount. Along one side of the barrel the words “We The People” are etched, and on the other side “Shall Not Be infringed.” And like all of the company’s guns it is stamped “Made in Aynor, S.C.”
Governor Haley’s rifle will be personalized with a custom serial number: SCGOVNH.
The commemorative rifle was designed as a way to say thank you to the people of South Carolina for the warm reception and support they have shown the company throughout their move and transition to the state.
The company will produce only 1,000 of the limited edition Model 91-SC COMM rifle, which will sell for around $1,200 at several area gun stores.
“It is remarkable just how lucky PTR Industries and the State of South Carolina are to have a Governor that embraces shooting sports and supports the 2nd amendment in such a way as Nikki Haley. All of us here at PTR are looking forward to having her as our guest, and presenting her with the newest PTR product; the South Carolina Commemorative Edition Rifle, which symbolizes and celebrates PTR’s relocation to the Palmetto state,” said John McNamara, spokesperson for PTR Industries.
