Troy Industries meticulously recreated the XM177E2 to 1967 U.S. military specifications, which was specially built for the covert needs of MACV-SOG use in Vietnam, right down to its 12½-inch barrel and muzzle device (pinned and welded for civilian ownership). Everything about Troy's new XM177E2 is period correct, including the coatings and sling. Even the pistol grip is Vietnam-era surplus. Since this year is the 50th anniversary of the XM177E2, it's fitting that Troy is rolling it out now.
