Patriot Ordnance Factory Officially Announces The 7.62×39 Puritan Rifle

Last week, we posted a brief preview of Patriot Ordnance Factory’s 7.62×39 Puritan Rifle, which has now been officially released. The official announcement can be read below.

Patriot 7.62x39

POF-USA puts a twist on the standard P-15 Puritan series with the addition of a 1 MOA capable 762x39mm rifle

PHOENIX, AZ (February 2015) – Patriot Ordnance Factory (POF-USA) is proud to announce the addition of a Puritan model rifle chambered for the 7.62x39mm cartridge. This new rifle features all the upgrades found in the Puritan series. Features included are 4.5 pound single stage drop in trigger, nitride heat treated barrel and components, NP3 coated bolt carrier, anti-tilt buffer tube, 3 position adjustable short stroke gas piston system, roller cam pin and the patented E² extraction technology.

Slamming the 7.62x39mm cartridge into a lightweight AR platform has many advantages. Think about the weapons manipulation skills developed through years of owning the standard .223/5.56 AR… now those skills translate directly into a package that weighs the same but packs a significantly larger “punch”. How about ammunition price? Depending on location, 7.62×39 ammunition is roughly 40% cheaper then .223/5.56. More bang for your buck in 2 categories! Punch and price…what’s not to love? The kicker…the accuracy. With proper ammunition, rifle setup and shooter ability, this new rifle falls under the POF-USA 1 MOA or better guarantee. That’s right, a 762x39mm 1 MOA rifle!

    What mags does that rifle run?

      Bingo! One of the guys I camp with went this route, and proprietary mags were his downfall, sold the rifle within a year.

    Steel-cased .223 is the same price as steel-cased 7.62×39. If we’re talking brass-cased, then brass-cased .223/5.56 is actually cheaper than most brass-cased 7.62×39 (the possible exception is surplus M67, which is corrosive).

    1 MOA accuracy isn’t practically needed unless doing long-distance shooting, and 7.62×39 is not the best choice for that.

    These guns don’t make much sense.

    ASC and C-Products make magazines. Would love to see Magpul make them too.

    Being a millitary vet and not a web ninja wanna be operator (no offense to any one who is the real deal) this about time.

    Calibers are not one size fits all. There are mission specific scenarios where the 7.62×39 outshines 5.56 and the other way around. As an all around cartridge though the 7.62×39 is a highly capable round as long as you can hit what you are aiming at.

    I know this has been a long time coming.

    Let’s not loose sight of the big picture here – one platform capable of multiple calipers allowing the operator to use muscle memory regardless of caliber upper used – this is why the AR15/M16/M4 style weapons have become the dominant tool of choice. Adding the 7.62×39 in a highly reliable format such as a piston upper or an entire rifle makes good sense.

    I agree on the mags – I am hearing a lot of good things about c products

    Doing a YouTube shortly on all these products stay tuned – I want to know if this is BS or real so I am going to find out first hand and share it with all of you. – code word for the test is “AR Dark Days”
