The week wouldn’t feel complete without a video of Athlon Outdoors contributor Mike Detty rocking a sick-looking gun in the beautiful Sonoran Desert southeast of Tucson, Ariz. For this latest installment, Detty puts the POF Revolution—a new lightweight .308 rifle built on an AR-15 platform (yes, you read that correctly)—through its paces.

The result of two years of development on the part of POF-USA, the POF Revolution features many 5.56 AR parts, allowing for a shorter overall receiver size and reduced weight. The rifle’s receiver size from pin to pin shares the same dimensions as an AR-15, the company says.
The POF Revolution features many 5.56 AR parts, including the 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 all the exact same size as those one would find on an AR-15.
The POF Revolution .308—which sports an overall weight of 7.3 pounds—also features the company’s slim Edge handguard with four built-in QD mounts, as well as a fully ambidextrous billet receiver set; NP3 coated bolt carrier group; single stage match grade trigger; 14.5-inch M-LOK MRR; 4.5-pound drop-in trigger; 34-inch overall length; 16.5-inch barrel with a 1:10 twist and more.
