1. Free-Floating Modular Handguard
The patented Modular Railed Receiver (M.R.R) is POF’s crown jewel for precision and extreme rigidity. This is a two piece upper assembly with a free-floating monolithic handguard that slides on and interfaces directly to the upper assembly thanks to our upper’s reinforced backbone. This backbone is five-times thicker than standard flattop platforms. The suspended handguard keeps your grip and accessories from weighing on the barrel and with the help of our wedge block, reduces stress and flex in the barrel extension area. This ensures both extreme rigidity and accuracy by directing stress risers toward the upper assembly’s strongest, most reinforced materials.
Standard AR “flat top” platforms only provide sixty-thousandths (.060”) of material between charging handle and the upper receiver spine.
The POF platform provides 300-thousandths (.300”) along the entire backbone. That's five-times thicker and five-time more rigidity!
2. Magpul Retractable Buttstock
When it comes to weight, feel, function, and durability, we spare no expense in providing only the best in AR accessories. Like us, Magpul™ is a company of constant innovation of only the finest materials.
Their STR™/CTR™ line of polymer retractable buttstocks are easily adjustable and feature "supplemental friction lock system that minimizes excessive stock movement for enhanced weapon stability and an ambidextrous QD sling mount that will accept any push-button sling swivel."
P415s (5.56/.223) feature the CTR™ -- shown here.
P308s (7.62/.308) feature the STR™ -- shown above.
3. Anti-Tilt Buffer Tube
Our mil-spec aluminum anti-tilt buffer tube features “carrier cradle” extensions to ensure that the carrier is always supported by the buffer tube, even when the bolt carrier is fully forward. This prevents carrier-tilt and premature wear of the buffer tube. Thusly, the buffer detent now doubles as a lock that inhibits the buffer tube from rotating and becoming loose under adverse conditions. POF’s design also features three drain holes.
4. NP3 Coated Upper & Lower Receivers
Developed by Robar® in Arizona, NP3™ is a combination of electro-less nickel alloy plating and Polytetrafluoroethylene (aka Teflon™).
The result is a smooth, perfectly even, self-lubricating surface inside and out that prevents friction, wear, and corrosion unlike anything else on the market.
5. Nickel Boron Coated Bolt Carrier w/ Roller Cam Pin
Our patented bolt carrier design is custom manufactured with the mechanical key built in and positioned behind the cam pin. This helps prevent carrier tilt and eliminates
the possibility of the key becoming misaligned with the carrier.
It features a chrome plated
bolt, extractor, and firing
pin and is able to run
dry with its nickel
Our patented Roller Cam Pin is just one more example of how far we will go to reduce friction and drag. Standard AR cam pins feature a square (steel) head that grinds along the inside of the aluminum receiver. POF’s roller head actually glides along its channel, enhancing reliability and prolonging the life of the receiver.
6. Receiver Tension Screws
7. Ambidextrous Safety Selector

8. Ambidextrous Bolt Release w/ Enhanced Bolt Catch Paddle
Standard rifle platforms have easy and fast operations. But whether your stalking, fighting, or a competition shooter, faster is always better. With the inclusion of the POF-USA patented Ambidextrous Bolt Release, readying your weapon has never been more intuitive. With a simple point of your trigger finger, the weapon is locked, loaded... and you're already back on target.
9. Ambidextrous Magazine Release
10. Ambidextrous Bolt Catch
11. Oversized Integrated Trigger Guard w/ Grip Relief
The original integrated trigger guard for the AR platform, introduced by POF-USA, is machined and coated with the Lower Receiver. Its oversized shape is wide enough for the thickest arctic gloves without the hassle of an unnecessary piece of plastic dangling from your rifle.
12. KNS Precision Anti-walk Pins
Not only are these stainless steel, non-rotating trigger/hammer pins the strongest on the market, but our rifles use KNS™ pins specifically
designed for POF’s fully-featured
ambidextrous lower receiver.
13. Drop-In Single Stage Trigger System
Our single-stage, non-adjustable, drop-in trigger boasts a crisp 4.5-pound pull weight and is pre-assembled in a red anodized aluminum housing (complete with rubber urethane feet) for immediate competition, hunting, and tactical applications right out of the box. Cut from American A2 steel, the trigger, disconnect, and hammer are all nitride heat-treated for ultimate strength and corrosion resistance. To top it off, all POF triggers come standard with KNS Precision stainless steel, non-rotating anti-walk pins specifically designed for our ambidextrous lower receiver!
14. Magpul MOE Pistol Grip
"The MOE Grip provides Magpul quality, feel, and durability in an economical, drop-in upgrade for the standard AR15/M16/M4 pistol grip. The ergonomic, hand filling design combines aggressive texturing with storage core capability."
15. Magpul PMAG Magazine Included
"The PMAG... features an advanced impact resistant polymer construction, a pop-off Impact/Dust Cover for storage, and an easy to disassemble design with a flared floorplate for positive magazine extraction from pouches. [It] utilizes a resilient stainless steel spring for corrosion resistance and a anti-tilt, self-lubricating follower for increased reliability."
16. E² Dual-Extraction Chamber
17. Oversized Heat Sink Barrel Nut
The patented POF oversized heat sink barrel nut is one of our most significant innovations. At just under four inches long, it completely encompasses the chamber and throat area of the barrel where expanding gas temperatures peak. To dissipate that heat, it boasts an amazing 51/44 square inches of surface area (P415/P308 respectively) where standard AR barrel nuts only have about 8. Take into account the radiation properties of aluminum compared to the traditional steel and you have 17x more heat dissipation than a standard AR! Our barrel nut’s four-inch length also gives the operating-rod substantial guiding surface, assuring constant positive contact with the bolt carrier. Our enhanced backbone receiver and wedge block (see Barrel & M.R.R.) also moves the upper’s natural stress point forward. This adds a massive amount of rigidity to the overall platform and is critical when vertical fore grips are being pulled on the upper assembly.
18. Interchangeable Rail Sections
Our latest generation of handguards does away with the difficult decision between our previous integrated rail models. First was the fully railed tactical design, known as the T-rail. Next was the sleeker hunter/sniper design that allowed better use of larger objective scopes, this was known as the H-rail. Our latest modular handguard, known as the M-rail, allows you to have both! The M-rail comes with three aluminum picatinny rail sections* that can be screwed to the top, bottom, and sides of the handguard. This allows you to keep your handguard slim and light weight or you can customize the sections on your handguard for any additional accessories.
Our new universal "M" Rail can effectively complement all styles of rail-estate. The solution: total and complete customization! POF’s new rifles come standard with one medium-length “12-rail” and two smaller “5-rail” interchangeable sections (referring to the available accessory slots found on each piece). These sections are perfect for essential accessories such as bi-pods, slings, flashlights, forward grips, etc. If you’re looking for a full-fledged tactical rail, we’ve got you covered -- literally. Visit our online store to purchase additional rail sections. We even offer a one-piece “17-rail” section to fill in the optical recess portion of the handguard.
19. Nitride Heat-Treated Gas Block
Our trademark Gas Block design is the heart of our industry-leading Regulated Gas Piston System. Our latest model is a sleek, solid, single-piece item (with no welding or guidance inserts) and is Nitride heat-treated separately for maximum durability.
20. Multi-Position Gas System
The POF adjustable gas system consists of three major components: the gas plug, gas piston, and operating rod. Residual gases behind the bullet are routed into the gas block, which drives both the piston and operating rod rearward, in turn, cycling the firearm. Suppressors add back-pressure to a firearms operating system and thus increases bolt speed. This causes premature wear on the firearm and can even result in the bolt catching the discharged casing, also known as “stove piping”. The POF gas system allows the user to restrict, and even shut off, this extra back-pressure by simply rotating the gas plug.
The gas plug’s notched position regulates gas pressure for normal, unsuppressed fire. Rotate the gas plug to the smooth position when using a suppressor. Rotating the gas plug 90* (as shown) blocks the rifle from cycling all together. Your semi-auto is now a bolt-action! No tools required!
21. Nitride Heat-Treated Fluted Barrel
When it comes to firearms, “reliability” means two things: functionality and accuracy. Proper gas regulation and lubricated mechanics are nothing without the precision and durability of a quality barrel. Our chrome alloy barrels are machined for absolute accuracy. Not only are they fluted for optimum heat dissipation, but our barrels are nitride heat-treated for full corrosion resistance.
22. Triple-Port Muzzle Break
Designed in house to precisely compliment the platform, our Nitride Heat Treated Muzzle Brake controls muzzle impulse for ultimate accuracy and an unbelievably soft recoil. Comes complete with a Nitride Heat Treated Collar and five (5) strike prongs.
