Troy announced a new Responder semi-automatic rifle that is designed to meet the needs of law enforcement and military personnel. The rifle is shipped as a complete “turnkey weapon system” and not as a base rifle that would need additional outfitting to be placed into service.
The heart of the gun is a Troy AR system. The gun is chambered for the 5.56 NATO caliber and it comes equipped with a 12.3″ barrel that has a 1:7″ twist. The end of the barrel is topped with the company’s own three prong flash hider with suppressor mount.
At the back end, Troy is using one of its new Tomahawk BattleAx stocks. This stock is a PDW-style stock that combines with the relatively short barrel to give you a rifle that is less than 27″ in length. For someone in cramped quarters or with limited storage space – like a motorcycle patrol officer – the short overall length can be a very real advantage.
For accessory mounting, Troy uses a 10″ Revolution carbon fiber M-LOK rail. An InForce WMLx 500 lumen weapon light is a standard accessory included with the rifle. Troy folding sights (with a tritium front post) are standard, as is the AimPoint Micro T2 mounted up top. Rounding out the included accessories is a Proctor 2-point sling.
The suggested retail price on this rifle is $1,999.
