Not a bad deal, only drawback is it's for a non-free float railed AR. If you don't have the time to piece an AR together then go for it I say.

Everything that I know of POF-USA is that their quality control sucks. In addition, I would have no interest in a piston AR. I would not purchase that AR.

this is easily changed... The price is not a killer deal, just a deal if you have been looking at that platform to start off with, or build on.

I get +90% of my parts from http://www.bravocompanyusa.com/

Just bought a Daniel Defense DDM4 V11 Milspec+ Cerakote.

Made a quick decision due to 2 in stock.

Please tell me this is a better than average AR...

The rail id exceptionally long. If you plan to run with it, you may see some drawbacks yealding the mass, depending how strong you are. Better then the average AR, nice stick to build on. What are you putting on it?

Probably my old EOTech Holographic for now.

It is only 6 lbs, should be ok for me.

My fat azz ain't running anywhere.

^^^ 6lbs, that must be a milled barrel, very nice! 12oz for the EoTech sets you up well. The stock looks comfortable, how is the lever for adjusting? Only thing I might add is a Comp 2, and solid charging handle. Backup irons as well, they seem to be the one thing I always go back to over many optics.

This.
POF-USA farms out their manufacturing to two or three different companies, including Hogan Manufacturing. Across the board POF has pretty spotty QC/QA. You might get one that is very good and reliable, and then another one that is a single-shot paper weight. I've seen a POF P415 rifle continuously shlt the bed in a rifle course for three days straight.

If you're going to get a piston rifle, get one that was designed from the ground-up to be a piston rifle. Sig MCX, HK MR556A1, LWRCI M6, FN SCAR, IWI Tavor, DT MDR, etc.

I see a lot of piston rifles taking dumps. I'm in a Steve Fisher/Sentinel Concepts rifle course right now on Day 2 of 3. Two rifles have had ongoing problems. One is a custom Salient Arms build DI 3-gun rifle, one is a Huldra factory rifle (which is a piston setup). We have 13 people in class, with many students using two rifles throughout the course. I think we've had 20 different rifles on the line, including the two I'm running. 18 are DI rifles, 2 are piston. 1/18 DI rifles have taken a dump. 1/2 piston rifles have taken a dump. I am a big fan of buying purpose-built systems.
