Without a doubt, the POF P-308 rifle tried to raise the bar when it comes to popular .308 hunting rifles. Boasting impressive features such as a high performance gas piston operating system, this modern sporting rifle is built for precision shooting and extreme reliability.

The AR-10 style rifle is made with high quality materials, and the construction is solid. The P308 is chambered for 7.62 NATO/.308 Win ammunition and comes equip with a 16.5 inch Nitride heat treated barrel with a 1 in 10 twist.

The barrel features a robust Armordillo Extreme Duty 5R rifling, and is made from 4150 Chrome Moly Vanadium steel. The lower receiver is machined from a lightweight, forged 7075 T6 aluminum and is designed to accept standard AR-15 grips and stocks. The receiver is topped off with an M-Lok compatible 12-inch free-float rail that gives you plenty of space for mounting sights and other accessories.

The rifle has an adjustable gas system that allows the shooter to fine-tune the recoil to their liking. This gas system also works in tandem with the addition of a sound suppressor, allowing the firearm to run with minimal noise.

The trigger is definitely a highlight of the P308, with POF claiming it is a 4.5 pound single-stage drop-in design that is matched for improved accuracy. We are happy to report that the trigger pull is indeed very light and smooth.

The finish of the barrel is a black nitride finish, which provides excellent corrosion and wear resistance. The overall finish on the P308 gives it an aggressive, black-ops look.

On the range the P308 performed nicely. The overall fit and finish was solid, with no apparent flaws in the construction. We were able to adjust the gas system into the sweet spot and fire sub MOA groups at 100 yards with both factory and hand-loaded ammunition. Recoil was comfortable and predictable, and we noticed the rifle is designed to help even the most inexperienced shooter become more accurate.

This AR-10 style rifle is certainly not cheap, with the starting price at $1,799.95. However, compared to other similar rifles, you're getting a great quality rifle for the money.

Overall, we have been very impressed with the POF P-308 rifle. It’s a perfect blend of precision, accuracy, and reliability. Whether you're a competitive shooter or a hunter, the P-308 is a great choice.
