No kidding. Congrats on the order but I couldn't stand having to wait that long to purchase a rifle which can't have a detachable 30 round magazine.

Tell that to Comi-fornia's legislatures!
I have to have a FIXED-TEND-ROUND!
AND Now they are legislating the bullet button. Our last shred of dignity is going down the tubes.

This .308 rifle doesn't have 30 round mags. I believe that POF does make
25 round mags (largest I've heard of on an AR platform). One can dream.


*BACK ON TOPIC*
What's the best method for breaking it in? POF gave a PDF manual but didn't explain that.

7 Days left...
this is taking FOREVER! Homer Simpson only had to wait 5 days!

'Five days? But I'm angry now!'
'Yeah, well, that's the law' sighs the shopkeeper.
'I'd kill you if I had my gun ...' Homer mutters
'Yeah, well you don't.'

Homer walks out of the store, muttering.
Lousy big shot, thinks he's so big 'cause he's got a lot of guns...

Oh well, seven days will pass soon. At least you don't have to wait more for it to ship to you, it's already at the FFL right? My BCM upper took a week to get here.

Looks like a great rifle! For now I'd read and reread that PDF, cruise POF forums and stock up ammo. Buy a bunch of mags and load them up for that great day next week!
