TROY Pump Action AR-15 – Another Gun Control State Compliant AR-15
I’ve long wondered when someone would come up with a pump action AR-15. The ergonomics and the way the bolt works with the magazine was all there.
Mossberg came out with their bolt action MVP rifle that takes AR-15 magazines which was a step in that direction.
Now, Troy Industries has taken the next steps and introduced a pump action AR-15 that looks like it would be legal in nearly every state, even those with the strictest laws governing semi-auto rifles.
I’m sure with some practice, a very quick rate of fire could be achieved with these, and there might even be a hint of better reliability than a standard AR since you aren’t having to worry about gas systems, fouling, etc. It should also keep your BCG and chamber a lot cleaner since the excess gases will stay away from that area.
Also, without the need for a buffer spring system you’d be free to have a variety of stocks to make it compliant in various states.
Here is the description from the TROY website,
The TROY Pump Action Rifle takes the ergonomics and versatility of the country’s most popular rifle design, the AR-15, and employs them in a new type of manually operated rifle. The TROY PAR allows for great sporting and defense applications in areas where legal ownership of the standard, semi-automatic modern sporting rifles such as AR series have been legislatively limited.
TROY’s PAR featurues a TROY Alpha-style handguard with a full top-rail with integrated pump action. The folding stock is adjustable for either right or left side fold, and telescopes in 5 length positions.
Once again, I don’t like that these new rifle designs have to exist in the first place, but I am glad that our brothers and sisters in gun-control states will be able to arm themselves with somewhat capable weapons.
