Phoenix, Arizona –-(Ammoland.com)- Patriot Ordnance Factory is proud to announce taking home the Rifle of the Year award from the 2017 Firearms Industry Choice Awards dinner. POF USA was honored to attend and thanks everyone involved in the process of setting the dinner up, and in the awards process, as well as congratulates the other winners that night.
The Revolution continues the POF tradition of Relentless Reliability and American innovation. The Revolution is POF-USA’s new .308 battle rifle that handles like a 5.56 – because it’s the same size and weight as one. The Revolution features many 5.56 parts; such as charging handle, bolt carrier, roller cam pin, buffer, heat-sink barrel nut, handguard, and 5-position gas piston operating system. The barrel extension, bolt assembly, upper, and lower receiver are the exact same size as those on an AR15. This is truly an AR15 that shoots in .308!
Weighing in at 7.3 lbs. the Revolution features POF-USA’s new slim Edge handguard with four built-in QD mounts. It’s loaded with features such as a fully ambidextrous billet receiver set, Nickel-Phosphate coated bolt carrier group, 5-position adjustable gas piston, single stage match grade trigger, and more. You may have just found your “one gun.”
When asked to comment, Frank DeSomma, the owner and founder of POF-USA had this to say:
“This award is one to be extremely proud of and an honor to achieve, because the Industry Choice Awards are evaluated by people in the firearms industry with experience: hunters, competitive shooters, instructors, retail, law enforcement and military. I’m very proud of our team’s hard work and a never-quit attitude to achieve engineering an AR15 to shoot .308/7.62×51. It was an extreme honor to accept this award for our company and me personally. The products in this competition are chosen on their “Merit” in an unbiased fashion, which instills and keeps alive the Honor and Integrity of the industry, and of this award.”
