Roughly eight years ago, POF-USA introduced the Renegade Plus AR-15 platform (below). The latest iteration of the Renegade Plus platform offers a more compact profile than the original with its 13.75-inch barrel. However, the addition of Dead Air Silencers’ KeyMo muzzle brake brings the total barrel length to a legal 16.1 inches.
The POF-USA Black Label Exclusive Renegade Plus
Building on the company’s Gen4 ambidextrous lower receiver and aftermarket furniture, the Renegade Plus provides enhanced ergonomics. Specifically, B5 Systems provide the Type 23 P-Grip and Bravo adjustable stock paired with an anti-tilt buffer tube. As a result, the rifle promotes optimal handling and reduced fatigue during extended courses of fire.
Both the upper and lower receivers feature a meticulously cerakoted olive drab finish for long-lasting durability. The M-LOK compatible rail features M-LOK slots along the side and a full-length Picatinny rail on top. So, users can customize their Renegade with the optics and accessories that best suit their operational requirements. However, the rail comes with Magpul MBUS front and rear sights already installed.
Housed within the rail is the 13.75-inch nitride heat treated, 4150 chrome vanadium barrel chambered in 5.56. The 1:8 rifled barrel features advanced barrel technology and a precision-machined receiver providing “guaranteed” sub-MOA performance, according to the company.
In addition, the barrel is fitted with Dead Air Silencers’ KeyMo muzzle brake to help mitigate felt recoil and muzzle rise. Not to mention, the muzzle brake brings the 13.75-inch barrel to a legal overall length of 16.1 inches.
Utilizing POF-USA’s Dictator 9-position adjustable gas block, the Renegade Plus provides reliable and consistent performance in various conditions. Likewise, the system helps reduce recoil and extend longevity.
“We are thrilled to introduce the latest Renegade+ rifle, exclusively available through our authorized Black Label Dealers,” said Jeremy Selting, VP of Sales and Marketing at POF-USA. “This exceptional rifle represents our commitment to pushing the boundaries of firearms technology, providing shooters with an unparalleled shooting experience,” Selting continued.
The Black Label exclusive POF-USA Renegade Plus is available now with MSRP of $2,100.00. For more info, please visit POF-USA.com.
