    The Troy PAR is getting a minor update for 2024, with a new forend that makes it easier to add attachments.

    Pump Action Rifles @ TFB:

    The Troy PAR is a reaction to ever-spreading bans in the U.S. market, where customers in many regions are finding it harder and harder to get their hands on semi-auto rifles, whether AR-pattern or otherwise, thanks to gun control bills. The PAR takes AR pattern magazines and triggers, but no AR upper or lower is compatible with this rifle; it is a completely proprietary design.

    As we told you a decade back when we saw this thing at SHOW Show:

    The pump itself is cleverly hidden under otherwise ubiquitous rail covers. The action stroke is in similar length to 12-gauge shotguns with just enough travel to eject and load 5.56/.223 rounds. Full-length top rails compliment the Troy Alpha-style fore-end and the rifle uses Troy’s medieval brake to reduce recoil.

    Since the PAR does not need a buffer tube, Troy is offering a 5-position stock adjustable for either right or left-hand folding. The design allows shells to be ejected even with the stock folded. The rifle is 25″ collapsed or 33.5″ with fully extended length-of-pull and weighs a scant 6 lbs.

    Since that debut, the PAR has basically followed the same pattern, but the world of tactical and sporting rifles has progressed, with M-LOK slots increasingly common. Shooters want more than a Picatinny rail atop the receiver; M-LOK slots on the forend make it easier to attach lights, grips or other useful accessories.

    With that in mind, it’s no surprise to see the PAR get a new 13-inch M-LOK forend for this year, with slots cut into the 6061-T6 billet aluminum handguard ahead of the pump. Obviously, the pump-action design somewhat limits what you can practically install and where you can put it, but this still will open up options for shooters.

    It appears that all .308 Winchester, .300 Blackout and .223 Remington versions of the rifle will get the new forend, no matter which stock Troy uses, folding or collapsible. Pricing starts at $1,140 for the 16-inch barrel rifle in .223 with B5 Blackout stock—more info at WorldOfTroy.com.
