    POF rifles

    I've been researching them for a while. Kind of expensive. Any of you have any experience with them, and their gas piston system? They would appear to be top notch..? I did a search and nothing came up so I thought I'd bring up the topic. How do they compare to the other high end AR systems (LaRue, Noveske, LWRC etc.)

    Thanks in advance

    Great end product (reliability (100%), accuracy(.75 - 1 MOA) & finish), premium price ($3k), long lead time (8 months)....but I do love my SPR/DMR build:


    Only drawback is some feedback (did not experience this myself) regarding poor customer service.

    I would do it all again...

    I have seen a couple of POF rifles in various classes. They looked like very nice builds and ran with zero issues.

    I would buy one.

    I have seen of some good ones and some bad ones. If you do a search there are some reports of them not being 100%...but that's just like everything else I guess.

    I would have bought one a couple of years ago if the had standard height rail system. I don't care for the extra SIR type top rail. DD made some prototype rails for them but they never went into production AFAIK. They had them in a VIS too but I don't think they were ever produced either. Oh well.

    Don't believe the hype about "no lube required". I didn't design it or anything...but hey, it's a FAL gas system with hard chrome inside the upper. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know it still needs lube.

    How do they compare to LWRC, or LMT's piston system. Also fit and finish compared to the others. There is a LWRC M4 flat top on Gun broker right now for $1300. Used but appears to be in mint. I want to jump on it but I want to compare. Any issues with LWRC rifles? Are they top notch as well? There price sure reflects this.... Are they worth the money, or should I get a basic LMT M4 flat top, and upgrade the piston system later?

    I would rather have an LWRC, because of the parts commonality and reputation for reliability. I own one, and it's a well built gun. I had some slight issues with it but the company jumped through hoops to make it right. Also, the rail height is that same as a standard AR which is one of my gripes about the POF. If you can buy one for $1300 buy it now. Otherwise you will be waiting 20 weeks. You could flip it for more money f you decide against it later. I have a lot of faith in LMT but nobody has one yet so there is very little evidence of it's function. If it works I will get one of them, also. I drink the piston Kool-Aid. I'd rather have a 416 than any of them but I don't have that option.

    I would rather buy a piston gun than convert a DI gun. They were designed as piston guns and the parts are made to. The conversions don't give me a warm and fuzzy.
