Does anybody know if a POF.308cal upper will fit on a Fulton .308 Lower? From all the searches I've conducted I've read that one of the pivot points on the POF .308 upper takes a smaller pin. There also has been suggestion that Bushmaster makes a pin that will overcome this problem but has anbody actually tried this?

Offset Pin
Adapts a Colt Lower Receiver (with large hole) to M16 Forward Assist type Upper Receiver with smaller hole.

I did post an email to POF asking if thier upper will fit on a Fulton/DPMS lower and their response was a quick "no" reply without any elaboration. I'm at this point because I already have the lower...

The holes for the pins in the POF are indeed smaller, front and rear. There's a couple of ways to ovecome it if you want to. A stepped pin with bushing on one side of lower likely easiest if you really want to do it.

ETA: not something I'd choose to do. IIRC there isn't enough meat around the holes on the POF upper to open the holes either.

all the best,
Mike

Thanks for the info Mike. I guess I'll hold off on that. It doesn't sound too reliable. Besides, I may go Armalite instead then.
