All-Tor is the only way I've heard it pronounced.

From the FAQ at Vltor's website:


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".



It seems logical that the word is pronounced as if it was written "ultor".

It's latin and it IS pronounced Uhl-tar. No doubt about it.

This should be in a FAQ. This is the third time i've seen a thread asking for pronounciation.
