Out at the range today is the Troy Sporting Rifle, or more commonly known as the PAR (Pump Action Rifle). This rifle is similar in design to the standard AR-15 however this rifle operates using a pump action system. This pump action system as well as a few other specific elements make this gun 50 state legal, which is good for people in more hostile states when it comes to our 2nd Amendment freedoms.
The rifle performed well out to 300 yards on a variety of targets. We may do more work with the PAR in the future, so stay tuned.
GunsAmerica also reviewed this fine firearm. Here is an excerpt from our write-up:
My favorite part of the PAR (besides its incendiary existence) is the stock. The stock on this is a thing of beauty. It is thin and boxy. A lever rotates a series of blocks inside the stock that lock the extendable stock in various positions. The whole stock breaks at the back of the receiver, and locks onto the front pin. It is ambidextrous and can be made to close on either the right or left side.
The rest of the controls are typically situated for the right-handed shooter. The good news is that the lower is built with modularity in mind. If you would want AR add-on style gizmos, they’ll fit. Did I mention Troy makes a lot of those gizmos?
