Patriot Ordnance Factory (aka POF-USA) announced a new rifle the company will unveil at the SHOT Show. The P300 is an AR-style rifle chambered for the 300 Win Mag cartridge. The new semi-auto rifles have been shoehorned into the size of an .308 Win platform with the intent to make the gun the relatively light and easy to maneuver.
POF-USA advised the guns will come with one of two barrel lengths; customers can choose either 18″ or 24″. The rifles use a gas piston system that is user adjustable to tune it to the ammo load you are using. Like the company’s other guns, the P300 uses the E² extraction system.
For the 18″ rifle, POF will use a Magpul CTR stock. On the longer barreled rifle, the company intends on using the Magpul MOE. Both models will use a 14.5″ M-LOK compatible handguard.
According to the company, the P300 uses the POF 4th generation lowers that feature completely ambidextrous controls.
In recent months, others on the site have reviewed the Renegade and Puritan rifles. In general, the guns were found to be reliable and accurate shooters. I expect that the new P300 will be at least as good as those guns were. It you are not already familiar with them, the Renegade is a DI gun, while the Puritan is a piston gun chambered in 7.62×39.
