Vltor released this on Facebook as a photo of a printout,
so I don’t yet have the text. When Vltor send it to me I will post the text. Text version at the bottom of the post.
Thanks Vltor. You’ve been added to the New York Boycott list.
I have an Vltor A5 EMod stock on my Templar Custom rifle. I would like to point out that according to Vltor’s website, their name is “Ultor” but they use the Roman U, which looks like a V.
Question: What does VLTOR mean?
Answer: VLTOR is the ancient Roman spelling for the Latin word ULTOR, meaning “Avenger”. This word was commonly used to describe the Roman God of War “Mars”.
Now you know.
UPDATE: VLTOR sent me a text version
