POF-USA Chosen as Rifle of the Year at 2018 Industry Choice Awards

(06/11/2018) Phoenix, Arizona – Patriot Ordnance Factory is proud to announce taking home the Rifle of the Year award from the 2018 Firearms Industry Choice Awards for a second year running.  POF USA was honored to attend and thanks everyone involved in the awards process, as well as congratulating the other winners.

The Renegade+ is a departure from the original vision of Patriot Ordnance Factory, who is known for being a pioneer in the piston MSR category of rifles, and for still having the most reliable and feature-packed piston driven MSR on the market.  Historically, there was much debate on whether or not POF-USA would or should even enter the Direct Impingement market.  However, Frank has never been one to back down from a challenge, and in true POF-USA style, the Renegade+ took form.

Built on the unique and fully ambidextrous Gen 4 lower, and produced with 100% American made raw materials and coatings, the Renegade+ and Renegade+ SPR with its 18.5” stainless barrel are clearly several steps ahead of the majority of the MSR market.  The upper receiver is built around the unique heat sink barrel nut, the 9 position adjustable DIctator gas block, a match-grade accurate 18.5” .223 Wylde barrel, and features our Renegade M-Lok rail with 4 QD sling mount points.

Finishing what is already an impressive rifle is the Ultimate DI bolt carrier group with High-phosphate nickel coating, a roller cam pin, and features a one-piece construction with an integrated gas key.  The rifle also features the Tomahawk ambi charging handle.

POF-USA is an Arizona-based small arms manufacturer known for its revolutionary concepts and radical approaches to engineering used to develop the finest piston driven AR-type rifles used by civilians and professionals worldwide. We are a market leader delivering a portfolio of regulated short-stroke gas piston operating rifles. We accept no compromise in the building of our product, known as “Patriot” designs. We will only produce that which is tough, accurate, modular, durable and true. This patriotic mission is brought from passion, authenticity, trustworthiness, rebellion, independence and objectivity.
