Another year, another award:
The POF USA Revolution compact .308 rifle continues to rack up awards, as it has been awarded the NRA American Rifleman Magazine’s 2018 Golden Bullseye award for Rifle of the Year. Just this past August, industry peers and professionals awarded the Revolution the 2017 Firearms Industry Choice Award for Rifle of the Year. Previously reviewed here at TFB, the Revolution is a relatively lightweight .308 AR-platform rifle that this author found to be accurate, pleasant to shoot, easy to clean, and 100% reliable throughout the review.
Per POF USA:
For Immediate Release
Phoenix, AZ. (January 2018) – Patriot Ordnance Factory is proud to announce the American Rifleman magazine has chosen the POF USA Revolution for the 2018 Golden Bullseye Award for Rifle of the Year. American Rifleman is the National Rifle Association’s primary magazine with a focus on reviews of different firearms, historical articles about firearms, technical information about reloading and notes from the President of the NRA. The Revolution will be featured in an editorial overview which will appear in the May 2018 issue of American Rifleman, American Hunter, and Shooting Illustrated magazines.
The annual Golden Bullseye Award will be presented to Patriot Ordnance Factory at the invitation-only breakfast Friday May 4th, 2018 during the 2018 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Dallas, Texas. To be considered for the Golden Bullseye Award, the Revolution was tested and reviewed by the publication’s staff and found to represent the finest quality in a shooting sports product that exceeds not only the reviewers’ expectations, but also its customers.
“The entire Patriot Ordnance Factory Team is extremely pleased to accept this coveted award,” said John Piscione Director of Sales.
The Revolution continues the POF tradition of Relentless Reliability and American innovation. The Revolution is POF-USA’s .308 battle rifle that handles like a 5.56 – because it’s the same size and weight as one. The Revolution features many 5.56 parts; such as 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 the exact same size as those on an AR15. This is truly an AR15 that shoots in .308!
Weighing in at 7.3 lbs. the Revolution features POF-USA’s new slim Edge handguard with four built-in QD mounts. It’s loaded with features such as a fully ambidextrous billet receiver set, Nickel-Phosphate coated bolt carrier group, 5-position adjustable gas piston, single stage match grade trigger, and more. You may have just found your “one gun.”
