    Well, the gun had to go back. It just is not reliable, particularly when resting the magazine on the ground or other surface. Several other problems too, like the flimsy hand guard flexing and hitting the gas block. We'll see what POF does. I'm already looking for something else, though, as I don't have any confidence in POF rifles.

    Keep us up to date. I recently had the opportunity to pick one of these up and chose the P-308 Edge instead. Being an early adopter was just something that I didn't want to mess with. The P-308 Edge has been excellent both in accuracy and reliability with the exception that there is some chrome flaking off one of the bolt lugs. The weight, as purchased, was 8.3 lbs.

    I'll update when/if there's news. I rolled the dice because of the size and weight, so the gamble is on me.

    OP Iím sorry youíre having issues.
    I was really close to getting a Revolution, but went with a PWS MK216 due to the military discount. Iím interested in what POF will do for you.

    It absolutely deserved and needed to go back. A wobbly rail is a total no go, and the concept of simply changing out the rail is unsat. It should function from the factory. It sounds like you were having gas related issues, and that needed to be addressed by the factory as well.

    Something wasn't right, but POF should take care of you without any problem. Keep us posted as to how it does when it gets back, and what they say they found wrong.

    POF sent the rifle back with the following disposition:

    "Replaced gas block spring. Replaced bolt and carrier. Cleaned and lubed rifle. Test fired rifle. Sent video to Scott. Scott is calling customer about how to proceed. 2019-02-21 14:06:05
    Replaced carrier and test fired shot prone with pressure on to carrier. Sent video to customer. Frank DeSomma talked to customer. Ready to return to customer. 2019-03-11 07:56:05"

    I'm not pleased with the rail, as it is simply flimsy and flexes enough to hit the gas block. That is part of the design, so although I think it's terrible, it is on me
    for buying the rifle that way. As to the bolt, carrier, and gas block, I will update after I test. If the rifle runs reliably, I'll put on a quality hand guard.
