In this video, Alabama Arsenal does an epic comparison of the FN SCAR and the POF-USA Revolution, see who comes out on top in the battle of the battle rifles!

"When people talk about innovation in the AR market, it’s generally met with an eye roll and expectations of a new color scheme or laser-engraved dragons. But that isn’t the case when the folks in white lab coats emerge from the secret development bunker at Patriot Ordnance Factory, or POF-USA. Well, OK, they aren’t wearing white lab coats, nor do they have a secret bunker, but the imagery is what’s important because what they developed might as well be from such a scene. And it all started with POFUSA’s owner, Frank DeSomma, saying, “It’s time for a revolution.”"

2019 ICA Winner


POF-USA Wins Rifle of the Year for the 3rd Year in a Row

(06/18/2019) Phoenix, Arizona – And the winner is… Patriot Ordnance Factory is proud to announce taking home the Rifle of the Year award from the 2019 Firearms Industry Choice Awards for their Revolution DI rifle. POF-USA was honored to attend and thanks everyone involved in the awards process, as well as congratulating the other winners.

The Revolution DI (Direct Impingement) shares features, advancements, and technology of the prior award winning Revolution PD (Piston Driven) with one distinct difference, its operation. The direct impingement operation allows for a smaller profile handguard, lighter weight, and 9 positions of adjustment thanks to the DIctator gas block.

POF-USA broke from the industry status quo by making an AR15 that shoots .308. It is important to note that the Revolution DI is not an AR10, or even a small frame AR10. The Revolution DI is the same size as an AR15. The Revolution DI is built on the unique and fully ambidextrous Gen 4 lower, produced with 100% American made raw materials and coatings, and state-of-the-art technology. Like another award winning POF-USA rifle, the Renegade+, the upper receiver is engineered around their unique heat sink barrel nut, 9-position adjustable DIctator gas block, a match-grade barrel, and Renegade M-LOK rail with 4 built in QD sling mount points.

POF-USA is proud to continue leading the MSR market with their feature-packed ultimate fighting machines.

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. They accept no compromise in the building of their product, known as “Patriot” designs. They 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.

Patriot Ordnance Factory (POF-USA) is known for its innovative approach to designing and building AR-style rifles. The company sources all its raw materials from the United States, and every step in making every part is done in the U.S. POF-USA guns have earned stellar reputations.

Now the company has unveiled a 7.62 NATO/.308 Winchester AR that’s the same weight and size as a 5.56mm/.223 Remington AR. It’s appropriately named the Revolution.

The 7.62 NATO/.308 Revolution’s lower receiver (bottom) is the same length, from takedown pin to pivot pin, as POFUSA’s 5.56mm/.223 Rem. P415 (top).

The following information will help you truly understand the differences between the design of the Revolution vs the AR10 platform.

The Colt 901 was the first attempt at reducing the size of the large action/frame of the AR10. DPMS mimicked the design and showed the GII two years later at Shot Show. Many other companies have copied this trend resulting in more “me too” products. They call this the “small frame” AR10. We will now refer to it as an “intermediate frame.”

The Revolution is an AR15 that is engineered to shoot the .308/7.62×51 cartridge. We started with the footprint of the M16 and added the overmatch force multiplying punch of the .308/7.62×51 battle rifle.

Firing pins (in order of left to right):

  • M16
  • .308 Revolution
  • “Intermediate Frame” .308
  • AR-10

The M16 is the shortest. The .308 Revolution & AR10 at the same length.

Charging handles (in order of left to right):

  • AR10
  • “Intermediate Frame” AR10.
  • M16/Revolution (both use the same charging handle). It is the shortest charging handle.

Bolt Carriers (in order of left to right):

  • AR10
  • “Intermediate Frame” AR10
  • .308 Revolution. Same size as the M16. This is the smallest bolt carrier used in these platforms.
  • M16

Bolts (in order of left to right):

  • AR10 – The longest, largest locking lugs and largest body diameter bolt
  • “Intermediate Frame” AR10 – Has the same length & body diameter as the AR10 bolt. Only the locking lugs are Intermediate in size.
  • .308 Revolution – Same size as the M16. The shortest length, smallest body diameter, and the smallest locking lug diameter. Only the geometry changes to allow the .308 battle rifle cartridge to shoot in the Small action Frame of the Revolution.
  • M16

Cam Pins (in order of left to right):

  • AR10 – The longest in length and largest body diameter for the Large action Frame. The head diameters are the same diameter as all frame/action sizes.
  • “Intermediate Frame” AR10 – Intermediate in length and body diameter. The head of the cam pin diameter is the same as the others.
  • .308 Revolution – The shortest length and smallest body diameter of all and built for the small action/frame. The head diameters are all the diameter of the M16/7.62 Revolution.
  • M16

Barrel Extension (in order of left to right):

  • AR10 – Largest in diameter but shorter in length when compared to the “Intermediate Frame” AR10.
  • “Intermediate Frame” AR10 – Barrel extension is the longest in length but the diameter is a 1/16″ larger than the M16 barrel extension.
  • .308 Revolution – Same length and diameter as the M16 barrel extension. Only the feed ramps are changed to handle the large .308/7.62×51 cartridge. Built to fit in our Small action/Frame.
  • M16 – Smallest length and diameter barrel extension built for the small action/frame to shoot the .223 / 5.56×45 ammo.

Upper Receiver (in order of left to right):

The Upper Receivers length shown in the picture shows the differences in length.

  • AR10 – The longest in overall length but has a shorter thread length of the barrel nut compared to the .308 Revolution.
  • “Intermediate Frame” AR10 – About a 1/2″ shorter in overall receiver length to the AR10 but has the longest thread length of barrel nut of all upper receivers.
  • .308 Revolution – The same size as the M16 length, size, carrier diameter, and pin hole to pin hole. It is 1-1/2″ shorter in length than the AR10 and 1″ shorter than the “Intermediate Frame” AR10. The Revolution small action/frame is built to shoot 308/7.62×51
  • M16 – Small action/frame built to shoot the .223/5.56×45 ammo.

As you can see, the proof is in the pictures. We’ve attempted and succeeded at bringing true innovation to this platform. The .308 Revolution uses many of the same interchangeable parts, or redesigned parts that are similar in size to those belonging in an AR15. This results in the footprint and overall length of the Revolution to be the same size and weight as your AR15. This is truly an AR15 designed to shoot the .308 cartridge!
