Patriot Ordnance Factory lower?

Came across a good deal on a Gen III lower. Anyone have any "personal" experience with one? Heard about Pmags not fitting in the mag well.

Good looking lower.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

There are two POFs in the family, a 5.56 and a 7.62. They make probably the best lower on the market. I can not see that picture but if it is a bare lower you may need their lower parts kit. I say that because once agian I can't see that picture but it may have the ambi bolt release.

Is it a bare lower?
How much is a good deal?

My dad uses Pmags in his 5.56 POF with no problems

that answers that. Smokin' deal for a POF.

So tell me how many did you buy?

I wouldn't mine one or two for a highend build but I have my hands full with 5 lowers still from the anvil arms group buy.

Just the one, my friend is selling it. Just gonna buy it and throw it the safe. I'll do something with it later, maybe a LaRue stealth 16 upper. I'm already tied up in a Beowulf build.

You might skip the LaRue build, and just use a Patriot upper. Their gas piston shiz is awesome.

Give me a dollar.

So is their accuracy. I watched 4 rounds of Federal Gold Match 168gr mark a tight ass clover leaf at 100yrds thru a cold bore in a .308 POF.

Today Sharana but I have 23 that I manage and have to frequent often. I hopefully will not have to travel until the end of the winter. I hate lugging around all that extra weight in cold weather gear.

Never been there, but i never leave Bagram unless my plane breaks down range. Ever been to Herat? ISAF base. I had one crazy night there involving beer, Jim Bean, 5.7 million in american cash and losing two teeth.

I am in BAF frequently. Been to Herat once, too damn windy. I have to stay further away from booze then most out here. I fire them by the handfuls for drinking. Most US $ I have handled was a $30 million cash transfer from Kabul bank to ************. I did loose a tooth in Dubai last month but the dentist pulled it. I doubt you had any say in your two coming out. lol
