Savage 170

     Notes: This was Savage’s only centerfire pump-action rifle.  It is a fairly recent development compared to its other pump-action models, being produced from 1970 to 1981.  It is a standard shotgun-type rifle in function, with a squared slide.  The carbine variant, the Model 170C, fires only .30-30 Winchester, and has a short 18.5-inch barrel.

Savage 1903

     Notes: This was the first Savage-made pump-action gun.  It is built on a basic shotgun-type pattern, with a round slide handle and a standard stock with a pistol grip.  It was, however, unusual in that it was fed by a box magazine instead of the normal tube.  The Model 1903 had a barrel of 24 inches, but a carbine variant, the Model 1909, had a 20-inch barrel.  The Model 1914 is basically a tube-fed variant of the Model 1903.

Troy Pump-Action Rifle

     Notes: The Troy PAR is an AR-based pump-action rifle.  The side and lower handguards are in three parts, and look like MIL-STD-1913 rails with blank plates attached to them; however, this is actually the slide. The PAR does actually have MIL-STD-1913 rails; one extends down the top of the receiver and interlocks with the Rail extending down the upper handguard, while the other two are on the sides and bottom. (The grip for the slide is behind these rails.)  This is the Troy Alpha handguard set. The PAR is designed to be legal in jurisdictions that have allergies towards “assault rifle”- type rifles, and is legal in all 50 states and all US territories and dependencies. 5.56mm versions are based on the AR-15A2; 7.62mm and .338 Federal chamberings are based on the AR-10.

     The PAR is also different internally, necessary to convert the rifle from direct gas impingement to pump action. One by-product is that the PAR can use a side-folding stock, though all iterations of the PAR so far use a sliding stock.  The bolt carrier group is a unique design that will not work in other ARs.  The receiver halves are standard AR-type receivers.  They are of aircraft-quality aluminum, hardcoat anodized, and then given a hydro-dip finish, in either black or Mossy Oak camouflage pattern.  The handguards and stock are also given the same hydro-dip finish. Synthetic furniture, such as the rail covers, BattleAx pistol grip, and recoil pad are tan.  The stock is a BattleAx 5-position sliding stock with sling swivels on the sides that are QD, though an option is a side-folding stock. Controls are mostly AR, except for the ambidextrous selector lever.  The manual safety is a button behind the slide that locks the slide.  The trigger is single-stage and has a pull weight of 4.25 pounds.  There are BUIS, the rear is a Troy rear-folding BattleSight and the front is a front-folding M4 BattleSight.

     The 20-inch barrel (16 inches for the 5.56mm and .300 versions) is bead-blasted, which increases the cooling surface as well as slightly lightning the barrel; the primary purpose, however is to increase weather and dirt resistance.  The barrel is tipped with a two-chamber Troy Medieval muzzle brake. The barrel is black Melonited. Behind this is a section of aluminum with cooling holes. The PAR is compatible with just about all AR magazines; in fact, the 7.62mm magazines will accept .338 Federal rounds.  The PAR ships with one 10-round Magpul PMAG.

     The PAR can be a bit heavy in some chamberings, but comfortable for average-sized and large shooters.  Small-statured shooters may find the slide a little difficult to reach comfortably.  It should be noted that if you do not rack the slide completely, the chances of a double feed are good.

US Fire Arms Lightning

     Notes: This is US Fire Arms’ take on the large-frame version of the old Colt Lightning pump-action rifle.  Though the USFA Lightning is designed primarily for blackpowder shooting, it is quite strong enough to fire rounds propelled by smokeless powder.  It is a very fast-shooting rifle; in fact, like the Colt Lightning, the shooter can simply hold the trigger back and pump the action to produce a large volume of somewhat inaccurate fire.  (In game terms, the shooter who does this fires at the SA rate, but adds one to the recoil of each shot.)  The USFA Lightning is an almost perfect copy of the large-frame version of the Colt Lightning; about the only difference is the lack of 100 years of wear and tear on the weapon, and less ammunition choice available.  An oddity of the Lightning is that the action must be racked open, with the bolt protruding from the rear of the receiver, in order to load the magazine.  The long, heavy octagonal barrel contributes to accuracy, and the sights consist of a semi-buckhorn adjustable rear and a silver blade front sight.

Winchester M-61

Winchester M-270

     Notes: This pump-action rifle completes the set of the M-250, M-270, and M-290.  It is basically a pump-action version of those rifles, with an aluminum alloy receiver and ejection port on the right side.  The M-275 variant fires magnum ammunition, but is otherwise similar.  Other versions of this rifle differ primarily in stock or sight design and are identical to these two rifles in game terms.
