Patriot Ordnance Factory recently announced the release of its newest .308 rifle and pistol, the Rouge. Dubbed the “Evolution of the Revolution,” the POF Rogue builds on the phenomenal success of the Revolution line of .308s. Boasting the size of an AR-15, the resulting Rogue .308 rifle weighs less than six pounds.
POF Rogue Details
The Rouge comes either as a full-size carbine utilizing a 16.5-inch barrel, or in pistol form with a 12.5-inch barrel. The carbine weighs just 5.9 pounds, while the pistol weighs a mere 5.7 pounds. These weights come in nearly a full pound lighter than the previous Revolution DI.
“These extreme weight savings were accomplished without needless lightening cuts commonly seen as weight saving measures” says POF founder Frank DeSomma, “and by using forged receivers, we’ve also cut the price significantly compared to our Revolution models.”
The Rogue boats some extremely useful features and innovations commonly seen from POF. These include many parts interchangeable with the AR-15 platform, including buffer, bolt carrier, charging handle and barrel nut. The Rogue features an ambidextrous QD endplate, ambidextrous selector, Renegade handguard and heat sink barrel nut, and match grade stainless steel barrel with a single-port Micro-B muzzle brake.
The Rouge retails for $1,799. For more information, visit pof-usa.com.
