Holy cow that thing is a shooter.   The brake must work, my 10 lb LR 308 jumps like a pole dancer on meth.

It’d be cool in 6.5 Creedmoor.

I have a pof upper gas block cracked after less than 300 rounds . I sent it back and they welded it. I would would switch it to di but I’m not sure the gas port is correct. Or if I can get the gas block off . If I remember correct the upper was$1200.

My Saint Victor 308 is only weighs 1lb more. Its a good shooter and the factory brake does a good job. Not bad for a $1200 rifle

In basically the same package.

My upper is in 556. At the time , I had to save up for it. It was back when piston AR s were just getting popular. And I wanted a good one . After getting it back I haven’t shot it much . I figured it would break by the weld.

fluted chamber like ala HK?

I have the 18" POF Revolution piston model. It's an awesome rifle, recoil really is only marginally more than a 5.56. Got it new for $1900.
Link Posted: 5/18/2020 12:23:58 PM EDT
Wow. That is badass.

Pat? Is he going to post here?

If so, I have a question. How did the grip angle "feel"? I know that is subjective because it will "feel" different to everyone, so I guess I want to know if it was distracting or weird in any way? I'm sure it is easy to get used to but did you go back and forth between an AR15 and the POF308?

I love the entire concept of that rifle.

It’s not so much the felt recoil...it’s just how much it jumps around when I shoot it.  

The only time I didn’t feel the recoil or the jumping is when I shot that 140 class buck that time.  
Link Posted: 5/18/2020 12:34:57 PM EDT
it'd be cooler if they were DPMS pattern. or SR25. Or anything besides it's own receiver pattern.

Ah yeah.  That's the one they had at SHOT right?  

Is it available yet?  I actually would be interested at that price point.  To be considerably lighter than the Victor or Adams Arms at a $5-600 expense isn't unreasonable at all imo.

The grip angle was fine. Going from an AR15 to the Revolution is easy. You hardly notice the setback of the grip.

$2800 is cheap? Maybe so, but my point was if I have 2800 to spend on a rifle, I probably have 3400 to spend on an upgraded LW version. I not bashing POF btw, I was just saying what I would do in that ballpark of money. Same reason I chose a SR-15 over a DD. It was a $600 price difference for a better rifle.

At Lobby Day I saw a guy toting such a braced "pistol". It was film dipped in the US Constitution. The parchment look really worked well on it and I'm usually not a big fan of that type of thing.

The special receiver design is what makes it 6.8 lbs .308 that's a short as a 5.56 AR. The DPMS and SR25 are huge in comparison.

Defense Review has a few pics here that compares it to a 5.56 POF with a similar barrel length.

Ya it's actually pretty interesting. I just wish there were some options like a nitride pencil barrel. Or different length handguards. And while I get the theory of their heat sink barrel nut. It just seems goofy.

Got one of the savage 308s that’s even lighter than the saint recently for less than 800 after rebate (super cheap due to hydro dipped finish that no one wanted I think—have painted it). Anyway I Haven’t gotten it out to the range yet, but hoping it shoots well.

Hm, like the barrel heat sink thing....Not seen that before
(I live a sheltered life, they don't let me out of my padded room very often )
Link Posted: 5/18/2020 7:58:56 PM EDT
Only a couple of hundred through mine so far, some suppressed, seems solid.
recoil is well managed- maybe the brake, maybe the piston system. Putting a scope that weighs probably half as much again on top might have helped.....

I got this one, unfired,  off the EE here for a steal...

New to the forum. I "attempted" to reply earlier! The ergonomics are very similar. The trigger/ grip being placed farther backwards doesn't set off any mental alarms. You literally wouldn't notice.
