While DefenseReview (DR) is on the subject of Troy Industries products displayed at NDIA Special Operations Forces Industry Conference 2012 (SOFIC 2012), we should probably also mention the Troy M7 Upper Reciever "Upgrade Kit" which combines with the end-user's select-fire (full-auto) M4/M4A1-type lower receiver or semi-auto-only AR-15 lower to create a cool little tactical AR-15 SBR (Short Barrel Rifle)/sub-carbine.

The Troy M7 Upper Receiver Upgrade Kit comes with:

– M7 Upper Receiver (Only) – M4 Military Bolt Carrier Assembly – M4 Flat Top receiver with extended M4 feed ramps 
– Charging handle
– High performance chrome moly vanadium steel 7.5″ melonite coated barrel with a 1:7 RH twist
– Pinned low-profile gas block and tube
– Troy Claymore Linear Muzzle Brake
– Troy TRX Extreme Handguard w/QD Rails (soon to be upgraded to the Troy Alpha Rail System, according to DR embedded video)
Troy Modular Combat Grip (Front BattleGrip)
Troy Battle Ax CQB Grip (Pistol Grip)
Troy Battle Ax CQB Light Weight Stock (Buttstock) and Receiver Extension with Castle Nut and H2 Buffer and Action Spring
Troy Flip-Up/Folding BUIS: DOA (Di-Optic Aperature) Rear Folding Sight & Tritium M4 Folding Front Sight (With adjustment tool)
– Shipped with (7) Troy BattleMag 30-Round Magazines (4179 STANAG)
– Note: For use with H or H2 Buffer only – not included. (Photo for illustration purposes, lower receiver, grip, magazine, receiver extension, stock, buffer and buffer spring not included.)
– Available Colors: Flat Dark Earth (FDE), Black
– MSRP: $1,525.00 USD

Defense Review would of course want to add a FERFRANS DSAS/RRS (Delayed Sear Activation System/Rate Reduction System) bolt carrier group (BCG) to any select-fire/full-auto SBR or carbine to lower the weapon's cyclic rate of fire (ROF) and enhance it's full-auto controllability, reliability and durability. The Ferfrans RRS/DSAS eliminates dreaded bolt bounce.
