Patriot Ordnance Factory USA (POF-USA) has just issued a press release on the new ReVolt Light 5.56mm NATO (5.56x45mm NATO)/.223 Rem. and ReVolt Heavy 7.62mm NATO (7.62x51mm NATO)/..308 Win. straight-pull fast-action-type manual-cycle AR rifle/carbines, along with some glam shots and a new range video (see below). It’s DefenseReview’s (DR) understanding that the POF ReVolt guns are based off the Gen-4 POF P415 and POF P308 semi-auto-only tactical piston (short-stroke gas piston/op-rod) AR rifle/carbines (which DR reported on from SHOT Show 2014), so they sport ambidextrous controls, including a large ambi-charging handle for the manual bolt carrier group and POF’s E2 (E Squared) Extraction Technology chamber. The guns also feature an 18.5″ nitrided and fluted barrel with 14.5″ M-LOK modular tactical handguard/rail system, and a lightweight Luth-AR buttstock.
When Defense Review first saw the POF ReVolt gun, we were immediately reminded of the very cool and seriously badass Cobb FA50(T) “fast-action”, lightweight .50 BMG/12.7x99mm NATO sniper/anti-materiel rifle that also uses a straight-pull action. Trust us, that’s a (very) good thing. We covered the FA50(T) way back in 2003 after we ran it a little at SWAT Round-Up International in sunny Orlando, Florida.
In the embedded video below, you can see them talk about the POF ReVolt Light 5.56mm achieving .25 MOA (Minute Of Angle) accuracy, which is pretty serious.
PHOENIX, AZ (October 2014) — Patriot Ordnance Factory (POF-USA) continues with an American Revolution in Innovation and brings out the ReVolt™. A new bolt action rifle, available in light (.223cal / 5.56mm) and heavy (.308cal / 7.62mm) variations for your shooting demands, which is legal in all 13 original Colonies.
These rifles feature a 14.5” M-LOK compatible handguard with 18.5” nitride heat-treated, deep fluted barrels. New to the market is the ReVolt™ action; a straight pull only action with feed assist chambering of the next round. The lightweight and popular Luth-AR buttstock is a standard feature on the new line.
POF-USA has maintained a focus on modularity – not only in the rifles, but also the accessories. The bolt action handle on the ReVolt™ models can be used as a tool for tightening and removing scope mounts and rail accessories. Muscle memory skills are virtually the same for this platform as a standard POF rifle, and all ambidextrous controls found in our Gen 4 series rifles are found in this loaded package. In addition to all of the fine features in our rifles, the ReVolt™ models also feature our E² extraction technology. E² extraction is a patented feature of four channels along the neck of the chamber. The channels allow gas pressure to flow backwards and push on the shoulders of the spent casing resulting in extractor life of 5X that of a standard extractor due to the push / pull action.
The ReVolt™ top end is available as a separate purchase and ships with a 10 round magazine and capture pin. This capture pin replaces the front pivot pin, permanently attaching the upper receiver to the lower receiver while maintaining the ability to “shotgun” the rifle for maintenance. The capture pin was essential in our quest to innovate a magazine fed, AR style, bolt action rifle that qualifies for ownership in all 50 states.
You can hunt with the ReVolt™ as a stand-alone weapon system or install the complete top end on your already existing mil-spec (.223cal / 5.56mm) lower half to maintain the legality necessary in owning an AR style rifle in many of the Colonies.
POF-USA accepts no compromise in the building of our product. Our line of rifles and accessories are “Patriot” designs. We will only produce that which is tough, accurate, modular, durable and true. This patriotic mission is brought from passion, authenticity, trustworthiness, rebellion, independence and objectivity.
