HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – The gun manufacturer PTR Industries still owes Horry County over $50,000 in rent on their property in Aynor, a county official confirmed Tuesday.

The remaining $52,709.35 owed by the company is expected to be paid in the next 30 to 60 days, as they were expecting a settlement from a transaction, but that transaction has been delayed, according to county spokesman Lisa Bourcier.

PTR Industries moved from Connecticut to Aynor in 2014, and currently employs about 30 people. In February, the company rehired several positions cut in 2014 due to a downturn in the demand for guns.

In September, the company unveiled a new South Carolina Commemorative Rifle.
