PTR is widely-known for making HK MP5 and G3 clones. At this year’s Shot Show, PTR announced their lineup of 3-D printed monolithic titanium suppressors known as VENT. When 3-D printing, the VENT suppressors PTR used additives in the manufacturing process to avoid structural weakness caused by wielding. Within the suppressor, internal geometries have helped reduce blowback to the end user’s face and to prevent wear and tear on the firearm.
At the tip of the VENT, suppressor PTR has added a metal foam structure. The company describes this metallic foam structure as “Purposely Induced Porosity.” This structure allows the gas to escape from the can by breathing through it. This metal structure has a high surface area to dissipate heat, slow gas velocity, and increase the flow rate.
Below is a press release on the VENT suppressors from PTR.
The new, ultra-nigh performance VENT Suppressor utilizes the next generation of suppressor technology. The design features sintered titanium and patented Purposely Induced Porosity (PIP), which enables it to outperform nearly every competitor in on the market with its unique combination of lightweight, heat dissipation, sound suppression, and back pressure reduction.
These suppressors employ a 3D-printed, monolithic, body-to-core structure, increasing their structural integrity and thermal resilience. This revolutionary design eliminates failure points often associated with traditional suppressors. Through the use of Purposely Induced Porosity (PIP), PTR’s engineers can finely tune the strength, density, heat capacity, and thermal conductivity of the VENT suppressors in ways that are beyond the capabilities of traditional manufacturing.
This industry-leading technology creates a new way to control the rapid expansion of gas that traditional bathe and now-through suppressors are unable to achieve, making the new line of VENT suppressors truly cutting-edge and superior in the marketplace.
The VENT suppressors will be available in 9mm, 5.56, and 7.62. PTR plans to have them available by this summer. The pricing of the suppressors is unknown at the moment and time. For more on PTR’s firearms and suppressors, click here.
Hello, everyone and welcome to The Loadout Blog. The purpose of this website is to share educate, inform, and build a lasting culture around firearms. I want to create a hub of reliable, cohesive, and relevant material for today's shooter. I am seeking to appeal to all demographics so from the novice, to experienced, along with LE and military communities. I am here to be transparent and honest on all matters discussed or chronicled on this site. I will post content once a week at minimum or more often if time allows.
Now, a little bit about me. I served six years in the Marines Corps as an 0311. I was in 2nd BN 4th Marines, 5th Marine Reg, 1st Mar Div. I was in Golf Company while in 2/4. I was deployed twice during my time in. I did one deployment to Afghanistan and my second was on apart of 31st MEU. I departed the military in September of 2015. I currently work as an RSO at a local range in Vegas.
