Patriot Ordnance Factory (POF-USA) has announced the all new P300 rifle, which the company says was directly influenced by requests of big game hunters and long range shooters.

The new configuration boasts an extended handguard, completely ambidextrous lower receiver and is chambered in the flexible big game 300 Win. Mag. cartridge.
Patriot Ordnance condensed this .300 Win Mag package to a size of an AR style .308. The addition of the adjustable gas piston system lets users tune the rifle to optimum performance based on the load and rifle configuration.
The P300 features a 14.5-inch M-LOK compatible rail handguard, which provides the necessary real estate for modern shooting positions. The M rail is unique in that additional rail sections are able to be mounted based on the shooters needs, or stripped off to reduce weight/size. If the top rails are removed from the M rail, the shooter has the ability to utilize optics with larger objectives and lower mounting options. This feature ensures solid cheek weld and increases point of aim consistency.
Keeping with the desire for consistency, the P300 features an adjustable Magpul CTR stock on the 18-inch variant and a Magpul MOE rifle length installed on the 24-inch variant (Furniture is subject to change). The P300 comes with an EFP drop in trigger (4-pound trigger pull).
The P300 is a product of the Generation 4 series of rifles, which feature completely ambidextrous controls including the safety selector, bolt catch, bolt release and magazine release. This new rifle also features our E² extraction technology. E² extraction is a patented feature consisting of four channels along the neck of the chamber.

The channels allow gas pressure to flow backwards and push on the shoulders of the spent casing resulting in extractor life of 5X that of a standard extractor due to the push/pull action. This feature will not damage the brass and will not affect the re-loading capability that most competition shooters require.
