Troy Expands PAR Line

Troy PAR

Troy is expanding the Pump Action Rifle (PAR) line in 2016 with guns falling into either the National or Optics Ready sub-lines.

The National Pump Action Rifles will ship with folding sights and a folding stock. For 2016, these guns have been upgraded to use a TRX2 Alpha-style rail. These guns are 50-state legal and will continue to be available in both .223 Rem and 300 BLK. These rifles have a black finish and will retail at $1,099.

Troy PAR

The Optics Ready rifles use an adjustable, but not folding, Battle Ax stock. As the name suggests sights are not included on these guns. Caliber options are more varied:

  • .223 Rem
  • 300 BLK
  • .308 Win
  • 7mm-08
  • .243 Win
  • .338 Federal

These guns are available in black. However, one version chambered in .338 Federal can also be had with a dipped Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Blades finish. The Optics Ready PARs have a suggested retail price of $799 – $1,199 depending on caliber and finish. These guns are also 50-state legal.

    Arrrghhh, make a ‘sporter’ for australian import! I promise to buy 26 of them. 300 BLK is getting popular as a pig (hog) calibre (caliber).

    • Tassiebush

      i second that.

    • Anonymoose

      Even if they did, they’d probably ban it for looking scary, like the HK R8. :

      • Kurt Akemann

        Concur after the freakout seen among Australian politicians and the media over the import of a lever-action Turkish shotgun with a 7-round tube magazine. They went ZOMG! over a gun that no politician in the US or even Canada would (publicly) want to ban, so I could easily see the Aussie government banning something just based on appearance.

        Sick and pathetic.

        • wetcorps

          Yeah that Adler situation is saddening, and I’m not even Australian.

        • Tassiebush

          Yeah it was a very disappointing knee jerk act. Thankfully the 5shot mag ones are coming in and it now looks good for the 7shot model next August when the temp import ban lapses. It scared the crap out of me. The precedent would have been set to go after all leverguns.

    • Goody

      No use telling foreign companies, if it looks like it holds a 30 caliber magazine clip you can forget about customs letting them through. Ruger precision rifle anyone? HK R8?

      What you can do is approach Warwick Firearms and ask for a pump action version of their already released, already legal WFA1. Or just get a 7615 like most do…

      • Tassiebush

        I think if they gave it a stock like the 7615 and made it with the same 9round mag for export it’d probably be allowed through but yeah Warwick firearms if it’s who I’m thinking of might be more certain given it takes customs out of the picture.

        • billyoblivion

          Just wondering what would happen if someone were to label 10 round magazines as 9 rounders and ship them.

          • Tassiebush

            Haha it’s hard to say. For all i know they might allow 10shot mags in now. They could import 15round MVP mags too I guess. Different mag limit for detachable mag bolt actions in my state.

  • Anonymoose

    What’s up with the stocks on these new models? If these have a setup like a regular buffer tube, an ACE folding stock might work.

    • kregano

      Have some states been making noise about folding collapsible stocks? If not, maybe it’s a manufacturing cost thing or them having a ton of extra Battle Axe stocks sitting in a warehouse.

      • Anonymoose

        Not outside of fully-semi hi-crap babykillin salt-waffles.

  • mechamaster

    It seems the 1st gen model lack the capability to add suppressor and other aftermarket muzzle brake / device because it’s permanently welded.

    Hopefully the newest model capable to add muzzle device such a suppressor and other aftermarket muzzle device.

    This rifle is nice candidate for quiet and clean operation in .300BLK subsonic + suppressor combination platform.

    • Shaun

      Note true, the brake is niether welded nor pinned. I have one. It’s now chambered in 458 socom.

      • Shaun

        Because 500 gn subsonic is better than 220 gn subsonic

  • Don Ward

    Wait. So now the cool kids have rail systems that they then attach smooth bits on so their hands don’t have to touch the cheesegraters?

    Mark my words, soon there’ll come a day when there’ll be rail system attachments that will lego together to make the foregrip look like the old 1960s grips.

    • iksnilol

      In the PARs case it is the pumpy part.

  • iksnilol

    I wish they’d make a 7.62×39 version that uses AK mags.

  • bridman225

    Say what you will about who they hired in the past… No one doubts their product.

    • dannye

      Sure they do, and HS Precision makes good stocks too. But just like Troy they hired and/or sought endorsement from totally unrepentant government murderers.

      Consider this a PSA.

      • bridman225

        An unfortunate event for sure. I don’t condone the actions of the FBI, but Weever was no less responsible. Resisting arrest, firing at federal agents and killing a U.S. marshall kind of make it hard for me to feel sorry for you. They could have walked out of that situation anytime they wanted to. Maybe it’s unfair, but ultimately, I don’t blame the sniper. He was a tool of the FBI just as much as his rifle was. Weaver broke the law, ran from the conciqiunces and got his family killed. Regardless…. It’s a tragedy.

        • dannye

          I suggest you educate yourself about the actual events at Ruby Ridge before condemning Weaver and giving the FBI a pass. On the points you made:

          – Randy Weaver did not resist arrest, his son and family friend were ambushed on their own land by an inept surveillance team. No attempt was made to arrest Randy Weaver. Also, Randy Weaver did not fire at anyone, it was his son who returned fire at the surveillance agents (after the agents shot first) and was subsequently killed while fleeing.

          – The FBI shooters independently and willfully adopted a ROE that defied official FBI policy, including shoot to kill unarmed individuals. Ergo, Randy Weaver could not have walked out as you suggest, he would have been murdered. This ROE also resulted in the death of Vicki Weaver.

          By the way the “law” which you condemn Weaver for breaking is the supposed sale of a shortened shotgun, which was based entirely on the word of a government informant. Unsurprisingly, the charge was dropped after the siege.

          • bridman225

            He went to prison for 6 months on the original charge. All other charges were dropped.

            This never had to happen. The federal government attempted to bring Weaver in months before it blew up into the situation it became. he could have faced the conciqiunces then. He chose to hide behind his family. His actions directly resulted in the death of his family members as did those of the federal government.

            I respect your opinion Dannye, I just disagree

            The last word is yours buddy. Pointless to continue

          • dannye

            Last word is you are wrong:

            “Weaver was found guilty of one count, failure to appear, for which Weaver was fined $10,000 and sentenced to 18 months in prison.”

            By the way Randy Weaver failed to appear because the court messed up the appearance date and didn’t bother to notify him.

            Have fun up-voting your own posts and shilling for FBI murderers who hide behind sovereign immunity.

          • javierjuanmanuel

            Quick, name twenty other people who did not show up fir a court date, and they then shot the guy at his house ?

            Can you name even 10 ?

          • billyoblivion

            Weaver was under investigation because the FBI had wanted him to be an informant on the white separatist/supremacist movement (Weaver was a separatist) and he refused–told them no.

            Do you *really* find it so hard to believe that certain individuals in the FBI might get their dander up over being told to pound sand?

  • INFI

    Troy states the .308 model has a “1 in 7” twist. Now that’s just crazy. Very interesting if it’s not a typo.
