This brings to mind some sage advice I got long ago from my local Stihl dealer (I was about 50 at the time). He counseled, "Every ten years buy a lighter chainsaw."

I agree, this 7.62/.308 Win AR-10 is 9.5 pounds BEFORE ammo/optic/bipod, and 40 inches long BEFORE extending the butt-stock. I purchased my "big iron" first. This mass and length, with the assist from the triple port muzzle brake, will make for a sweet shooting and accurate "long shot" gun.


My next purchase will be short-barreled/arm-braced AR, in 9mm or 300 Blackout.


My initial "One and Done" thinking became "Two and Done".

DUA - Looking forward to a range report on the AR 10. The NP3 finish looks clean, smooth, and simple. Did you have any choice(s) over the impressions on the inside of the dust cover? I am not a fan of commerative-type stuff on my firearms, and that combo kind of jumped out at me. Obviously, YMMV

I still gotta go old school(-ish) on this, you really need an AR in 5.56 NATO

All of the POF USA guns come with that "GOD BLESS AMERICA" and "charging flag" dust cover motif. Frank DeSomma made that decision LONG ago. He had this on the first gas piston/op rod AR he designed/developed back in 2004. It's an easy swap-out for those who don't like it. FWIW, I like it.


The competition laughed at the thought of a gas piston/op rod AR design when POF released it, now most are making gas piston ARs themselves. Cool, clean, no blasts of smoke in the face when running suppressed, and it will have a suppressor eventually.


The first few range trips will be with the 2 MOA SIG RDS (in pic). Will post results.

How did that thinking work out on the P5s?

Should be getting the first range session in on the AR-10 this weekend (my B'day weekend).


Doing it right, the POF USA P308/P415 Armorer's Manual, an Ambi charge handle, and 1000 rds of Hornady 168gr A-Max Black should be here by Thursday.


This will give me chance to break it down, get familiar with the design/assembly details, and verify proper torque spec settings on fasteners. An ounce of prevention.
