Screw it. I'm going to break one of my personal rules, but what the hell. I've got some serious reservations. If anybody wants to know why, pm me.

How do people like the Troy pump action rifle?

"Flawlessly". Every time I see this word in a thread, I brace myself for bullshit. Around half the time I end up feeling vindicated.

Yeah, I saw the thread pop back up and got excited. I've been pondering a new hunting/SHTF rifle for a while. Only ever shot traditional rifles and think everyone of my family would be confused if I showed up at the farm with a rifle with a pistol grip. That being said, I like the idea of the customization you can do with an AR, so the SCR seems like a contender (also looking at the Ruger Gunsite Scout).

Does anyone have any more experience or insight on the SCR? There was some good feedback in the thread, just wondering if anyone else had anymore to say. Would love to test out one with wood stock.

Why is this better than a 5.56 Saiga?

Because it's not a 5.56 Saiga...

Because the Saigas aren't being imported anymore AFAIK, and because the out of the box Saigas still have to be 922r compliant. The SCR, assuming it works, would allow you all of the rebarreling and accessorizing you want for the upper receiver including easily mounting a suppressor, adjustable gas block, caliber changes, barrel changes, etc. Doing anything more than replacing like parts with like on an imported rifle requires going the full 922r route, and on the Saiga requires a press and other machinery. Rebarreling an AR is as easy as popping two pins or as difficult as using a screwdriver, a torque wrench, and vice.

I'd like to see the Remington 7615 or something similar come back as competition. Failing that, hard to beat a levergat.
