[SHOT 2016] Concealed Carry Troy PDW

High Threat Concealment (HTC) collaborated with Troy Industries to make a conceal carry rig for the Troy PDW. If you look closely, the M7A1 stock is attached to a sling that runs under the shirt. The HTC rig holds the AR magazine. The design of the M7A1 stock allows the shooter to release the stock with the firing hand on fire control. With the stock retained by the sling, it is deployed as the shooter draws the PDW down and out of the HTC rig. This would be perfect for executive protection details. They should try making a rig to conceal the PDW with a Magpul 60.

    I like it, perfect for going to check the mail.

      Bring the Pain. And the kid’s cell phone bills. I gotta long driveway.

        Nothin’ like shootin’ guns out of the truck.

  • Colin S

    Pretty sure you mean M7, not MP7 – unless the H&K pdw has grown some LOL.

    As a long time reader of this blog, I’d like to formally request you guys stop pushing Troy products. I doubt this blog would suffer if you guys covered one of the several thousand other products that were released at SHOT this year. They make great products. & I will never own one. I really wish the firearms community had half the integrity and backbone it claims to have.

    • hydepark

      I was going to chime in and say something similar. If Troy wants advertisement they can pay for it. I guess the last comment section on Troy didn’t make it through to the writers or editors here. Maybe if they took five minutes to research who those people mentioned are, they wouldn’t publish anything Troy. It’s their blog I suppose.

      • Daniel

        I am relatively certain I’ve made the same request in years past.this is the only blog I frequent. I doubt they would notice my 5 or 6 clicks a day missing if I went elsewhere. But it adds up.

    • Orion Quach

      I would like to formally request they continue to cover Troy products.

      • Bill

        Nobody wants AK coverage stopped because Mikhail was a godless pinko commie and it’s the preferred weapon of third world warlords

        • hydepark

          Interesting point but still apples to oranges. None of my Arsenal AK’s have anything to do with Mikhail. Plus it’s not like he profited from his contribution. Troy hired a jackboot. They knew he was a jackboot. I’m not saying TFB should cease posting Troy articles. But I do think they should at least be intellectually honest and acknowledge the fact that they are promoting a company who hired a known state sponsored thug / murderer. Of course I can’t even get Alex to admit he was wrong for ignoring basic range safety practices.

          • Bill

            Sorry to break it to you, but if its an AK, your Arsenal AKs were designed by a commie. There were plenty of “jackboots” in the USSR, and “jackflipflops” in the third world. If your going to beat on Troy, then you have to go absolutely apepoop over anyone profiting off the AK design. Unless some jackboots are less jackboots than others, you can’t have it both ways. How many Good Guys have been killed by people using AKs? How many God Guys have been killed by people using Troy products.

            Methinks your moral compass hasn’t been adjusted for declination.

          • iksnilol

            No, you’re kinda missing the point. There’s a difference between somebody you don’t like having designed an item and somebody having an unconvicted murderer on their payroll and touting him as an hero.

            It has little to do with the product itself.

        • iksnilol

          Whoah… even godless pinko commies know to not murder people. At least not less than your average godfearing people.

      • Daniel

        As long as it doesn’t affect you, it doesn’t matter what egregious errors are made and then defended in the gun community right?

    • JumpIf NotZero

      I really wish the firearms community had half the integrity and backbone it claims to have.

      Fat chance. Even poor business practices aside, Troy has never made something that someone else doesn’t make better. I was very happy to remove the BUIS from my gun and replace with the much small and better Magpul Pros.

  • John

    that guy in the background in the green shirt is REALLY good looking. I mean like drop-dead gorgeous. I wish we could have seen his face.

    Oh wait, that’s me.

    My statement still stands.

    • Budogunner

      That makes me think about Buffalo Bill’s famous make-up and mirror scene in silence of the lambs.

      • Bill

        Some things can’t unseen.

        Movie folklore is that he kind of ad-libbed that, so to speak

  • Budogunner

    My desire for an exact clone of the honey badger has passed. I still have a .300 blk but I came to my senses about impractical stocks.

    • Nicholas Chen

      I like my M7A1 stock. It works well on my AR. The short length of pull works and I cheek the small buffer tube that sticks out.

    • nova3930

      It’s all about requirements. I’ve got one of the troy PDWs on an 8″ 300BO and I wouldn’t want to shoot a class with it or anything like that, but it works great as a compact truck gun that might only see a few rounds in a given day….

    • PK

      Same here… back when AAC first showed that off, they could have sold every unit produced. A shame it never entered production, and the buzz has since died down.

  • Mcameron

    although i question how concealable that rig actually is……..

    it does look like a decent solution for private security that needs some decent firepower but still needs to maintain a low profile….

  • Sgt. Stedenko

    Maybe they could find a spokesperson who bathed and shaved in the past month?
    I guess he was too busy getting inked up with the profits Troy generates from their products.

  • JamesRPatrick

    Wow that guy looks super inconspicuous…

  • JumpIf NotZero

    PDW stocks are the 2008 piston craze all over again.

    • PK

      Unlike the piston conversions, I see real utility in these small AR stocks.

  • Mario AK

    Does the blur camo come as standard?

  • LV-426


  • It’s interesting and definitely cool. However for the “under the jacket surprise party,” I still think the P90 would be preferable for executive protection.

    P90 is 19″ OAL with no stock to deploy, shorter top-to bottom height for wearing under the jacket, 50 rounds (100 w/ mag clamp that doesn’t effect bulk due to mag layout), more controllable FA, and significantly less muzzle blast.

  • Nate H

    Where is it legal to conceal a rifle? No, seriously? My CCW permit expressly says:


    Is there somewhere I can get one that says “Handgun, Rifle”?

    • iksnilol

      I was always wondering about that.

      I mean, it is legal to carry a handgun concealed but is it legal to carry an SBR concealed?

      • PK

        It depends on state law. Where I live, it’s perfectly legal to conceal NFA items and I have done so now and then.

        • iksnilol

          Machinegun with suppressor inside the waistband, a spare SBR receiver in the back pocket, SBS in ankle holster and an AOW pen gun in the pocket? Y’know? For the whole fiveecta 😛

    • PK

      Different states have different laws. In some states the permit/law simply says it’s a permit to carry “deadly weapons”, whatever they may be under state laws. Where I live, anything goes so long as you have a permit. Batons, brass knuckles, knives, SMGs, anything at all.

    • Cymond

      The Pennsylvania Uniform Firearms Act defines “firearm” as “any pistol or revolver with a barrel less than 15 inches, any shotgun with a barrel less than 18 inches, any rifle with a barrel of less than 16 inches or any pistol, revolver, rifle or shotgun with an overall length of less than 26 inches.”
      So yes, a SBR can be carried concealed in PA.
      Also, the Short Barrel Shepherd (blogger) lives somewhere that SBRs are legal to carry, but it’s not PA. He’s mentioned several times that his state forbids suppressors.

  • William Elliott

    What jacket is that?
