This is a lot of spend for only marginally better accuracy than what the DPMS delivered. Also, it's heavier and longer than the DPMS, limiting its use in close quarters or in a vehicle. We do recognize the quality of the build, however.

Here is the heart of the POF action. Just below the handguard are the handful of components that make up much of the piston gas system.
The top barrel is the POF, fluted and capped with a 3-port brake.
The POF had a massive handguard that supplied tons of attachment points. The monolithic top rail was able to accept any sights we wanted to place on it. It seems like a picayune concern when considering the total package, but not having any sights for this $2600 rifle means it can't shoot right out of the box. A POF-USA FTA-2005 snag-free front sight lists separately for $64. A diamondhead "Micro-d" ip-up Combat Sight Set available from POF lists for $238 - a big price add to this already expensive rifle.
