Troy PAR in 300 BLK

Troy PAR

Troy Defense met a lot of success with the PAR: a pump action version of the AR-15 rifle. As designed, the PAR allows many people who live in areas with very restrictive gun laws to own a rifle that has the general look and feel of the AR.

The PAR was originally introduced in 5.56 NATO. At the 2014 NASGW show, a .308 Win version was announced. Now, at the 2015 SHOT Show, Troy Defense showed a 300 BLK version of the gun.

The 300 BLK PAR has a 16″ barrel, a BattleAx CQB stock and BattleAx pistol grip. It does not ship with sights, but it is equipped with a Picatinny rail for the easy addition of irons or an optic. The MSRP is $799.

  • mechamaster

    Can’t wait to see .300BLK PAR + Silencer combo ( if the muzzle device is capable to accept the commonly available silencer ).

  • Orion Quach

    Love Troy products, although their hiring division could use some work. As many have said before, a silencer on this would be to cool!

  • echelon

    Dictators say “jump” and the manufacturers say “how high?”.

    Love it.

    • Duray

      How is a firearm manufacturer in any way responsible for laws passed by the people’s elected representatives? Troy is just a company selling a product they think there’s a demand for. The “dictators” didn’t say anything to troy, they just told the people they can’t own troy’s products.

      • echelon

        Because rather than band together, pool resources, lobby, etc. to fight these insane and asinine “laws” they just roll over and produce franken guns that are bastardized versions to comply with them.

        There’s really no reason for a pump action AR or AK to exist other than as an example of engineering ingenuity or something. But even then, how hard is it to put manual action bars on a gun?

        Change doesn’t happen by capitulating.

        • Vitsaus

          If you’re going to hold manufacturers accountable for fighting bad laws, then the NRA must also be placed among them. With the kind of money they have there’s no reason why there shouldn’t be an NRA lawyer in every podunk town thats trying to pass an anti-gun ordnance. I don’t care if its saying you can’t buy ammo on Sunday during a lunar eclipse if the calendar date is an odd number, NRA should be there. Can’t blame manufacturers too badly, we might think they are rolling in dough, but fighting laws is expensive, and ultimately they’d rather put their money into marketing and new products.

          • echelon

            Well you’re obviously assuming or putting words in my mouth because I absolutely believe the NRA should be doing everything you just said and more.

            I got kind of suckered into becoming a life member at some point in time but I no longer give to the NRA because they’re basically just in it for themselves. They’re more interested in keeping the status quo than actually pushing back.

            And when the SHTF and they have to speak to the public, rather than use logic and give convincing proofs they do the same things the gun grabbers do and appeal to emotion and stupid things like blaming violent video games.

            And why shouldn’t manufacturers be held accountable for fighting bad “laws”? If the government is going to impose restrictions or generally make my trade or business harder then it only makes sense that I or my company would fight back.

            And then you have the NRA fighting really hard to get us 50 state CCW reciprocity…which is really just a fancy name for national database of every CCW gun owner in the nation. Thanks for nothing NRA…ask me for money when you decide to actually do something like fight the GCA or NFA. (Trust me, I won’t hold my breath)

          • Vitsaus

            I agree with everything you just said, but for the part about manufacturers fighting laws. SIG is doing it, which is good, but the fact is, SIG his huge. Some one like Troy is not that big and the cost could be ruinous. I will say, I would like for manufacturers to follow SIGs model, but I won’t condemn them for not.

          • echelon

            Fighting the system doesn’t have to equal a huge cost. It can be doing things that bring attention to the tyrannical nature of these supposed “laws”.

            It also means, at least to me, NOT producing things that cater to the statutes. Think about it. If a body has the power to ban full auto fire, barrel length, magazine capacity, etc. then they can at any time also ban the PAR or anything else. So to me these products are more detrimental than anything else because it just shows that companies will capitulate and produce things inline with the current state of affairs. And then when they change their mind after the next tragedy, then the manufacturers will just jump a bit higher and produce single shot variants or whatever…oh wait they already did that too.

  • Don Ward

    Lever action AR or GTFO!

    • Burst

      It could probably be done, although you’d have to build a special lever to clear the magwell.

      How about a lever action AUG or Tavor?

      • Don Ward

        Dear God man, don’t give them ideas! Because…


        Some of us might buy one.

        *Breaks down into a sobbing puddle of shame and remorse*

      • Jonathan Wright

        just mount the action lever on the fore.

  • Jsim

    Are you able to switch the upper out with a gas ar upper?

    • Millett

      Buying these look alike fake ARs,is embarrassing to the good people of this country and even moreso to the second amendment…..what has happened to “”America””. ??????

      • Jsim

        I actually want one to hunt with a lot of areas don’t allow semi auto rifles to hunt with and has been like that for years. It would make a great coyote gun in PA

  • Jsim

    just looked it up for awhile you aren’t able to swap the upper with a normal ar but will they sell both 300 and 5.56 par uppers

  • Doubting Thomas

    Now make a 12 Ga version, and I might be interested.

    • Giolli Joker

      So you basically want a 12Ga pump action shotgun that looks like an AR…

      • Vitsaus

        Probably also wants it to take Glock mags.

  • Wetcoaster

    Since it has no gas system to adjust, wasn’t the .300 BLK model as simple as swapping the .223 barrel for an appropriately contoured .300 BLK barrel?

    I’m sure there’s room on the market for it, but this is a little bit shrug-inducing from me. Kind of like a bolt-gun maker introducing a .243 (or .260 or 7mm-08, or .338 Federal) version of a .308 gun.

    That said, without the need for a gas system, I’m very curious what someone could with an integral suppressor in the manner of the MP5-SD or Sten and Sterling.
