Frank DeSomma of Patriot Ordinance Factory (POF-USA) talks about his belief that the direct impingement Revolution DI in .308 is “the ultimate fighting machine.” It weights 6.8 lbs. with a rifle length gas system. He also discusses the development process of this firearm…
Via the POF website:
We broke barriers and won awards when we released the piston driven .308 Revolution. For 2019 we’ve introduced the Revolution DI (Direct Impingement). By popular demand, you get the same technology, same durability, same features, and same AR-15 size, but in a smaller direct impingement system featuring our 9-position adjustable Dictator gas block and Renegade rail. There is virtually nothing left to upgrade.
The original Revolution weighed in at a paltry 7.35 pounds, turning heads for its incredible light weight and small stature for a .308. The Revolution DI weighs even less at 6.81 pounds with a 16” barrel, making it ideal for just about any situation you put it in.
