PA­TRIOT ORD­NANCE FAC­TORY

RENE­GADE PLUS SPR

Recoil - - Industry Excellence -

POF seems to be mak­ing a habit of win­ning ICA awards, notch­ing its sec­ond win in the ri­fle cat­e­gory with its Rene­gade Plus SPR. POF’s known for its gas pis­ton de­signs, but de­cided to bring its en­gi­neer­ing flair to the di­rect im­pinge­ment mar­ket. While the world of DI AR ri­fles is pretty sat­u­rated, the Rene­gade Plus SPR still stands out with a num­ber of in­no­va­tive fea­tures in a func­tional and at­trac­tive pack­age. No­table fea­tures in­clude its am­bidex­trous con­trols, roller cam pin, heat sink bar­rel nut, nine-po­si­tion ad­justable gas block, straight gas tube, and in­te­grated gas key on the bolt car­rier. It’s avail­able in .223 with a Wylde cham­ber and 18.5-inch bar­rel or .224 Valkyrie and 20-inch bar­rel; both bar­rels are 1/7 twist, match grade, and ni­trided. The ri­fle sports an M-LOK hand­guard, three-port muz­zle brake, flat 3.5-pound trig­ger, Mis­sion First Tac­ti­cal grip, and Luth-AR butt­stock.

Eval­u­a­tors high­lighted the gun’s fea­tures, crafts­man­ship, and at­ten­tion to de­tail, with com­pli­ments such as, “The ri­fle stands out when side by side with other ARs,” and “It’s a high-end AR in a world of plain AR ri­fles.” One noted that in his test­ing, the ri­fle “put 15 of 20 Rus­sian Wolf 55-grain bul­lets into a 6-inch steel gong tar­get at 400 yards on a very windy day.”
