two out of two that failed to function does not sound that great to me. I get the weak ammo but no M4 ramps on a premium offer in any caliber is a huge oversite.
The Barrels are not SS according to their website but mil spec CMV case hardened Rock creek pulled button commercial side barrels not Mike Rocks match SS barrels. It would not make sense to use SS given they are rated for reg FA use.
I have to say I have always liked the POF even with my comments above. There is something about them I like. The parts they use are top notch. I really likes the parts being coated to take lube to a min and OTF piston design. I have seen a a number of reliability issues posted and the time lines for getting one well before the current rush was very very long. I do believe now that they require a 50% down deposit up front. Based on that I would recommend getting one thru a dealer like the OP saw and posted on to avoid this. I would not want someone to have my money for 6 -12 month on a regular production item with nothing in hand to show for it. So I l guess I have a mixed opinion. I can say the one I got to shoot, full auto as well, ran like a rapped ape but it to had to go back to be fixed when it first arrived. After that it ran great which was when I got to demo it. It had has 15K thru it IIRC when I got to try it and was still running flawlessly.
Maybe they have things fixed and these will hopefully be awesome guns. You always hear about the ones that fail but only hear 1 out of 100 that work great. Something to always keep in mind.
