Why dont you ever see POF 308 in the for sale forum? I have seen just about every cool gun out there, from tommy gun pistols to 1919, AR's, Ak's, pistols, M1A's, every type of AR Variant except the POF 308.. Are they that rare or hard to get, or are they that great of a Rifle that nodoby wants to sell theirs?
I am just curious.

I meant a complete POF 308 rifle.. I have seen alot of POF lowers with various uppers and lowers by themselves.

Many people dislike POF actually and end up selling them because of weight or other reasons. If you cant find POF, I would say look at ADDAX for a GPAR.

You just answered your own question. Relatively speaking, there aren't that many POF-308s out there. I placed an order for one when they first announced them. And after waiting a year to get it, I can't imagine why I'd want to sell it.

No too many of the .308 models around (uppers) vs. 5.56.

I had a very early POF piston upper...I think it was what turned me off when it came to piston ARs...that thing was a POS!!!!!:mad: I understand they made some improvements since, what, i do not know. I hope their .308 uppers are better.

Addax 5.56 upper.....waaaaaaaayyyy better!!!! So OP if you decide to go that route..(5.56), give Addax a call. The way I see it right now, with lead times on uppers as they are and gouging that way it is for private re-sales on almost every board and auction site.....IIRC the last I read Addax is only 5-6week lead, and his price vs. a gouged DI upper...the argument of a piston system being just another bell or a whistle you pay extra for and don't really need, goes right out the window. I can probly pay less if not the same amount for a piston upper right now as I would for a DI....thanks to Addax for not gouging...his prices are still the the same (depending on your build ordered):thumbsup::)

:D First the Diablo and now a POF308.. I going to be a happy camper. I think there needs to be more options out there for the gas piston on AR10 "style" platforms..

I went with the POF becus they were only ones to offer it in 308cal.. Plus i read they are great shooters and Personally i think they look cool as hell:thumbsup: As for a 5.56 gas piston upper, that is next in line. I am going to have addax retrofit my LMT. ;) Plus i have the diablo which i LOVE!!! I know some people dont like the gas piston uppers but i do becus to be honest, I am lazy and dont clean my rifles very often. Thats why i love My Ak's.
