Yes awesome package!!!
Frank , check your emails. Im trying to get my Recon 16'' upper ordered.

I liked my POF M4 so much , I decided to get one of these.
To anyone who doesnt know, The POF piston op AR is extremely reliable. I have more than 3000 rounds through my rifle without any ( thats zero) malfunctions. You get a lot of rifle for the price!

Also, Frank can you get us some more pics of this recon 16'' rifle?? I think that you are going to sell alot of these!

What is a "5R Polygonal Barrel"? Is that how the barrel is rifled? I was looking at the Noveske site and their barrels have polygonal rifling and I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on what that is.

That's really nice, i'm also a sucker for hard chrome plating.

Question though: there is often grumblings of hydrogen embrittlement with hard chrome plating on certain alloys. What would you say to those who question it, and if an issue how does POF-USA address it in your product?

thanks

Sweet!

POF-USA-

Will you please come out with a light weight profiled barrel version of that? That is what I have really been waiting for.
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 6:06:39 AM EDT
Been waiting for this. What accuracy are you getting and what lower and mags to you recomend? Might be the ticket for an urban sniper rifle if it can cosistantly keep MOA with Match ammo. What are your test showing? My 223 POF is still chugging and keeps me safe at work. Thanks.

How much does that upper weigh?
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 10:27:50 AM EDT
Just ordered my Recon POF 16'' upper. This will be my second POF piston upper. The first one was that good. POF has a proven product and Im making the best of it.
Very good guys to deal with over there.

VERY COOL ! I LIKE IT

They say 8-10 weeks but POF told me that it could be sooner.

Being I already own a 14.5 POF piston upper with perm flash hider, I will say that it is slightly heavier than a direct gas AR. I never weighed it but I would say that it would be within ounces. The piston reliability far outweighs the little bit of extra weight.

I'd still like to see them numbers, some people think the 416 is a minuscule weight increase (7.7lbs ).

Thats about the weight class I would put the POF in. It is slightly heavier but extremely robust. I would not second guess the strength and reliability of POF. I cannot get my rifle to jam. It is definately piece of mind!

The complete 16" "Recon" gas piston upper without front & rear flip up sights weighs: 5 lbs. 4 oz.

The same 16" "Recon" gas piston upper with Troy Ind. flip up front & rear sights weighs: 5 lbs 7 oz.



Thank you!

That is good to know.
Can you tell us more about the Silicon nickle plating that you use in your upper recievers? I am getting this option on my Recon and would like to hear a little more on the advantages of it.

Perhaps my question got buried in all the other replies. Can you make a version of this with a light weight profile barrel (or any of your other uppers for that matter)? Is there a technical consideration that prevents you from making one? Trust me, there is market for one.

Oh and trust me. The little bit of added weight is well worth it. You are getting a lot of rifle there.

Our current barrel configuration is a heavy profile and fluted, but is lite weight.
Our barrel design helps to eliminate heat. Our 16" barrel weighs 2 oz. more then a 14.5" M4 pencil barrel that is .625ø under the hand guard. Hope this answer your question.
Best regards,

Patriot Ordnance Factory



Thanks, that is light enough for my tastes.
