Since it looks like Magpul is coming out with AR-10 type mags (http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct/?productnumber=172932) I think I am going to take the AR-10 plunge.

I am leaning towards a 20" POF (http://www.pof-usa.com/p308/P-308-20-MRR-CF-308-SPR-C.R.O.S..htm). Any comments on this company/rifle?

You can get a Springfield M1 National Match for that and have a trunk of ammo.

Heard that too bt hear they are several months out.
I have a 16" POF .308 and I love it. I will someday have one each in .223/5.56 and 6.8SPC. Very impressed with them.

I have a 16" POF upper in .223 and I'm hoping to buy the same .308 you're interested in. I had some initial break-in issues with the bolt and carrier but all is good now. The quality of the POF upper is second to none and I'd definitely buy a POF again. I have an M1A Scout on order since 11/10/08 but still no sign of it. If it's not here in a couple of months, I'll cancel the order and then I'll definitely have a POF before the end of the year.

Get a DPMS Sportical .308 instead and save money for ammo. Magpul will sell those mags fast thats for sure, alot of buyers out there for those including myself. :evil:

Thanks for the comments everyone. I figured the rifle and the magpul mags were old news, but I guess not.

I have pretty much decided that if I get into the AR-10 platform it is going to be this one, a Noveske, or nothing. Since Noveske won’t say if they plan to make .308 rifles again, it is pretty much POF or nothing.

Even though it is an expensive option, I think they do give you a lot for the money. Just the robar NP3 work has to be several hundred $. The quad rail + adjustable gas system + fluted chrome lined barrel sounds like it should be a pretty handy and reliable MBR.

Another added benefit is their commitment to US made components.

POF’s website says a 20 week wait so I might have to order the mags and rifle at the same time :)

I can't even find them on the MagPul site. Strange.

Any comments on this company/rifle? Company has horrible CS, or it was for me, but other than that, they make a awesome product. I have a 18" SPR in .223 and I LOVE it.
