I am considering ordering a rifle from this company. Has anybody had any experience or range time with one of their rifles?

Thanks Mike

A lot of aquaintances of mine have had issues. My own experience has been working at a match where a POF gun, new, was used by 20 shooters. In 500 rounds it failed at least three times, requiring remedial action. Whether someone else cleared more malfunctions than I saw, I cannot say. The weapon was lubricated and ammunition and magazines cannot be faulted. I would not purchase a POF product.

My experience with the POF guns was not much better than Scott's. I have several friends in the military and LE circles who bought the G3 and MP-5 clones made by POF, with few good results. Almost all of these gentlemen bought them hoping that they were getting HK quality at a bargain price and a few were buying them for use as a duty carbine. Failures to feed, failures to eject and even parts breakage have been VERY common among the 5-6 guns in this group. Much of the metal after being checked by a metallurgist friend (who is also a rather big name in the gun world now) showed much of the metal to be very soft, similar to forming a common kitchen skillet into parts, as he put it! just about everybody I know that has encountered these have (not so) affectionately re-named them POS :roll: --John

I've dealt with folks who have owned/own the POF's in 5.56 & .308. The .308's have seemed to run just fine and everyone that has had the 5.56's have had problems. POF has helped those folks out no questions asked. I hope that helps at least a little bit.
