Patriot Ordnance Factory Begins Shipping the All-New .308 Revolution

Phoenix, Arizona – Patriot Ordnance Factory (POF-USA) is proud to announce the Revolution is now shipping to distributors. 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 actually uses many 5.56 AR parts, which allow for a shorter overall receiver size and reduced weight. The Revolution receiver size, from pin to pin, shares the same dimensions as an AR-15.

This is NOT a small frame .308, it’s smaller! 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, NP3 coated bolt carrier group, 5-position adjustable gas piston, single stage match grade trigger, and more.
You may have just found your “one gun.”

    Can’t wait to see how this rifle holds up over time. Love the idea, and want it to work, but skeptical to see if the smaller housing can endure higher pressures and recoils.

    • Chris from Cali says:

      Higher pressure? 5.56 and .308 are very close in chamber pressure, which is being contained by the brass and supported by the chamber and bolt face any ways. In theory, this means the receiver shouldn’t have to handle nearly that much additional stress. If they turned the gas pressure down at the gas port or in the piston, the lowered reciprocating mass of their carrier should not be seeing vastly increased velocities, and felt recoil should only see a marginal increase. Isn’t this the principal employed, albeit to a more minor degree, in the ARP NEXT GEN MSR? Somebody correct me if I’m wrong.

      • Glenn says:

        I’m not an engineer, but as I understand it pressure and volume are different. While .223 and .308 may exhibit similar chamber pressures, the volume of gas generated is much higher with .308 so your operating system parts must be able to deal with more total energy. That’s one of the reasons you shouldn’t just bore out a .223 suppressor and hang it off a .308 rifle. POF must be using some combination of spring rates, buffer weights, and bolt lug design to handle .308 bolt thrust, etc.

    My “one gun” is already an Aero Precision M5

    That looks and reads as pretty bad ass. If is anything like the POF guns I’ve shot in the past, this should be awesome.

    I’ve been wanting a small frame .308 for a while new and have gotten tired of waiting for all these other guns to make it to market. Good on POF for getting it done! Under 7.5# for a .308 auto loader, yeah buddy!

    Wish they would have figured out how to put it on a standard upper, not the “high rise old POF system.

    I’ll buy one when they put it in the puritan format.
