    My brother is looking at a POF brand AR-10. I don't know too much about brands of AR type rifles and he wants to know if it is good to go.

    Well, I've read some reviews good as well as bad about this rifle.

    Anybody here have experience with this rifle?

    No experience. But the big question is which magazine is it compatible with? You really want to go with the original ArmaLite AR-10/ArmaLite AR-10A/Knights SR-25/Magpul/DPMS style.

    Yeah; there are two types of magazines for this style: Armalite and DPMS. A rifle that will work with one won't work with the other.

    Well that's good it works with the old ArmaLite standard and Magpul. I should have mentioned there are two incompatible ArmaLite AR-10 magazines, the original AR-10/new AR-10A and the more common AR-10B based on the M14 magazine. The old magazine is becoming the industry standard. RRA has another magazine based on the FAL I think.

    And there will be some whiner who says "If it's not an Armalite, it's not an AR-10" or some such, sorta like the AR 15

    Well it's a piston gasser and it's chambered in .243 Win.:cool: So that will really get the gas impingement/7.62 guys flustered.:D

    We figured piston with the "POF" in the title of the thread. I'd like to be able to own a POF just to see if they live up to the hype. Oh yeah, with their nickel/whatever coating, (at one time it was silicone nickel, then teflon nickel-don't know what it is today) that will open up another can of worms with the purist crowd.:D

    The guy that had it shot fourty or so rounds through it before he had so sell this one due to his divorce. I know the gentelman and he sold off near all his rifles that couldn't make it out to and past 1000 yards effectively. He had this rifle out to 1200 yards and it performed pretty good as far as a semi auto goes. I think all he owns now is very spendy custom built bolt action rifles as he competes in long range practical precision and TBRC matches for the $$$. He got me into this spendy bolt gun long range stuff a few years ago.:cool: Kind of going the same way he has gone in that I've been getting rid of most my rifles that can't shoot less that 1/4" MOA. Pretty much all I have now is trap and skeet guns and spendy custom built bolt action target rifles.

    He won't be able to compete in NRA F/TR class as the rifle is chambered in .243 Win., not the required .223 or .30 cal. But, he may compete in some class of service rifle open comp. match.
