Patriot Ordnance Factory Announces New REBEL .22 LR Sub-Gun
Adam Scepaniak 01.02.20
Patriot Ordnance Factory (POF) recently debuted their New Rebel .22 Long Rifle sub-gun leading into SHOT Show this 3rd week of January. They actually made the announcement 22 days before the start of SHOT Show (get it… 22 days… chambered in .22 Long Rifle). At least someone at POF has a sense of humor along with a genius mind to bring us this AR-style sub-gun that accepts Ruger 10/22 patterned magazines. POF goes on to further explain their most recent work of art in this Press Release below:
PHOENIX, AZ: The new POF-USA Rebel was designed to defy what the world believes a .22 LR can be. Our engineers rebelled and created something revolutionary. Designed from the ground up around the 10/22® magazine by our Award-Winning engineering team at Patriot Ordnance Factory. The new Rebel provides an affordable package for customers never before seen in the firearms industry.
The new POF-USA Rebel was designed to defy what the world believes a .22 LR can be. Our engineers rebelled and created something revolutionary. Designed from the ground up around the 10/22® magazine by our Award-Winning engineering team at Patriot Ordnance Factory. The new Rebel provides an affordable package for customers never before seen in the firearms industry.
From its inception, the Rebel was designed to provide customers with a .22 LR sub-gun from the future that lives up to POF-USA’s design standards of excellence and innovation. All while allowing shooters of all skill levels, age and size to enjoy the best possible .22 LR shooting experience.
While there might be a lot of nay-sayers believing this is just another AR style .22 Long Rifle, those people are frankly quite wrong in their interpretation of the Rebel. Little to no modern AR-style .22 Long Rifle firearms are accepting of Ruger 10/22 patterned magazines which is a huge plus. Also, the monolithic aluminum M-LOK handguard is a very forward-thinking upper to top off a traditional lightweight lower. A further deep-dive into the anatomy can be watched through POF’s YouTube video on the firearm.
If you are starting to be intrigued by this firearm or are waiting out for more valuable information, your next question might be when will these actually become available? POF is stating that they will be available to the public beginning on March 1st with an MSRP of $649. The rest of the specifications can be read below as presented by POF:
