POF Puritan 7.62×39

    Patriot Ordnance Factory announced the addition of the 7.62×39 caliber to the company’s Puritan line of AR rifles. The new guns will use AR, not AK, style magazines.

    According to POF, the guns will shoot 1 MOA and will have all of the other premium features the company includes on other Puritan rifles. These features include:

    • 4.5 pound, single stage trigger
    • nitride heat treated barrel
    • NP3 coated bolt carrier
    • short stroke gas piston
    • E² extraction technology (see here for more)

    POF is stating the gun offers the benefits of a more powerful cartridge with less expensive ammunition in a platform that many Americans are already familiar with. The MSRP for the existing Puritan rifles is $1,499. A MSRP for this caliber is not listed.
