I'm already looking for something else, though, as I don't have any confidence in POF rifles.
    You asked if this is a dud or par for the course. From what I’ve read POF is not known for highly reliable AR10’s. Looking into another platform will serve you well. The new Colt CM is the best bang for the buck, however it is not totally vetted for longevity yet. Too soon on market, but great start. Then look at your easy home-runs , DD LMT....

    You shot it pretty good for a 1-6 scope. And that’s why I think your groups really opened up at 200.


    Best of luck.

    Hey alrick18,
    Well, I'm sure everyone reading this would love to know what the Problem(s) were and what they did to TRY to fix it and what YOU ended up doing to fix said Problem(s)?

    Peace

    RVTMaverrick,

    With my AR 10 from the well known builder. The problem was bad gas rings, I changed them out to enhanced gas rings and I have never had a problem after that, with over a thousand rounds fired. Number 10 was my problem, you would think that the builder would have done the same type of check. Then I have seen a few AR run with bad and no gas rings. This builder said that they did a function test with and without my suppressor and the rifle cycled correctly. This AR 10 was a $4,000.00 rifle and it was not KAC, it was just a frustrating experience that I was able to get resolved on my own.

    What I learned from the experience are:
    1. Just because they are a reputable builder, I could still have problems.
    2. For gas guns check everything, a good cleaning and lubrication before you start shooting should be a common practice.
    3. Just because the builder said there is nothing wrong with the rifle, does not mean it is fixed.
    4. When you try 4 different brand magazines, 7 different types of ammunition and it still does not cycle correctly, the problem is the gun.
    5. Just because the builder has a solid reputation on building bold guns does not mean that they will be on top of things with gas guns.
    6. Suppressors add another potential for problems even with best gas blocks.
    7. Understand ejection patterns for your gas gun, they will tell you if you gun is over gassed, under gassed or if adjustment are warranted.
    8. There is a difference in shooting one round at a time or shooting from a full magazine.
    9. Spraying carb cleaner down the gas tube will quickly tell you if your gas block hole is blocked or out of alignment.
    10. If your bolt carrier group will not stand on end with the bold head extended you could have bad gas ring or an oversize bore.
    11. Be careful when swapping out BCG's on the AR 10
    12. Get headspace gauges and know how to use them.
    13. Learn how to read your fired cases.
