NRA Gun of the Week: Troy Defense .338 Pump-Action Rifle

posted on September 3, 2016

Troy Defense’s Model SPAR-S3F-18MT-01 is a 50-state legal pump-action rifle that mimics the design and features commonly found on today’s popular AR-10 rifles. It feeds from SR25 magazines and is chambered for the hefty, but fun to shoot, .338 Fed. cartridge. The gun’s camouflage finish, along with its chambering, make for a great hunting rifle. We found the rifle’s pump-action operation to be lightning fast and buttery smooth. The larger .338-cal. bullets are well suited for big-game hunting and extended-range target shooting. The gun features billet-machined aluminum receivers, a rail for optics and accessories, a Troy Lightweight BattleAx CQB buttstock and a 20” stainless steel barrel that is capped with a muzzlebrake to ease recoil.
