Troy Industries Issues Statement Regarding Dick’s Sporting Goods Suspension of MSR Sales

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

Troy Industries issued this statement earlier today regarding the decision by big box store Dick’s Sporting Goods to abruptly suspend sales of Modern Sporting Rifles after the tragic shooting in Newtown, CT earlier this month.

Troy Defense (Troy), a division a Troy Industries, Inc., was deeply dismayed and shocked to hear through national media outlets that Dick’s Sporting Goods (DSG) made the decision to stop selling the Troy Carbine along with other modern sporting rifles. DSG did not contact or inform Troy of this decision prior to notifying the public. Nor was Troy informed by DSG that cancellation letters were being sent to customers, set to arrive on Christmas Eve (a day Troy was closed).

Troy has invested millions of dollars in its facility and operations to bring its first ever modern sporting rifle to the market under an exclusive contract with DSG. In selecting DSG as the sole distributor of the Troy Carbine, Troy relied on DSG’s high sales forecasts and sales potential prior to undertaking the significant financial and corporate commitment necessary to design, develop, manufacture and bring a new modern sporting rifle to the marketplace. Based on DSG’s press release, DSG’s anti-gun stance is clear – DSG will not continue modern sporting rifle sales and Troy will sadly not see its Carbine readily available — despite the outlay of millions of dollars by Troy and its commitment to support DSG in its distribution efforts.

Troy is currently researching other channels to ensure continuous and consistent distribution for its rifles. But please note, Troy’s pricing to DSG was based upon volume sales. It is unlikely that pricing to any other outlet in the future will support the pricing granted to DSG. Troy understands the anger of certain DSG customers whose purchases have been cancelled – you got a great price from DSG. However, Troy, itself, cannot come anywhere close to offering the Carbine at the price DSG was offering it. DSG devalued and diluted Troy’s brand when it offered for sale the Carbine at a steeply discounted price during Thanksgiving week. As a result of the sale price set by DSG, DSG oversold and overpromised its inventory. Nonetheless, the current ill-will could have been avoided had DSG not terminated modern sporting rifle sales, promptly canceled overpromised orders, and forthrightly communicated with Troy.

Troy is hopeful that it will soon identify a new distribution channel for its Carbine. We ask for your patience and support during this difficult and transitory time.

Best regards,

Ruger Enters the Black Rifle Market

Saturday, May 16th, 2009

Ruger has introduced the SR-556â„¢, a piston driven carbine. The rifles features a 16.125″ barrel with an overall length of 32.75″ – 36″ and weighs in at 7.92 lbs.

Ruger SR-556

The operating system is a chrome-plated, two-stage piston paired with a four-position, chrome-plated gas regulator to facilitate tuning the rifle to specific ammunition or operating conditions. Additionally, the transfer rod is electroless nickel/Teflon coated. Ruger claims that the carbine is chambered in 5.56 but we are not yet able to verify this as promotional data states 5.56mm NATO/.223 Rem. The bolt, bolt carrier, and extractor are chrome plated and the SR-556 offers a cold hammer-forged, chrome-lined Mil-Spec 41V45 barrel. The barrel has a 1:9 twist and is capped with the AC-556 flash suppressor from the Mini-14. Additionally, the once-piece bolt carrier has an an integral transfer key.

Ruger has also incorporated Troy Industries Folding BattleSightsâ„¢ which co-witness with Mil-Spec optics and can be raised at the push of a button.

The furniture consists of a Troy Industries Quad Rail with three Troy Industries Rail Covers, a six-position telescoping M4-style buttstock, and Hogue® Monogrip® Pistol Grip. Troy developed the rail specifically for the SR-556. The rifle also comes with a lock, three 30-Round MAGPUL PMAG Magazines, and packed in a custom soft case.

Although the new rifle does include several extras it is a bit pricey, particularly for a new entry into the market.

The SR-556â„¢ is beginning to show up in gun stores. For more information visit Ruger.
