The P415 was engineered over 10 years ago to be virtually unstoppable in unfavorable conditions. It is a product of continuous development and improvement to the AR platform that no other rifle company has attempted. The reliability has been tested time after time, and the operating system perfected. E2 Extraction Technology, complete ambidextrous fire controls, modular free floating rail platform, and numerous internal improvements make it the pinnacle of all-purpose 5.56 caliber sporting rifles.
To minimize weight and maximize shooter comfort, the new P415 Edge features a redesigned handguard, reducing the size from the original by nearly 20%, making the width a mere 1.75 inches. Not only does this drop the weight down to 7 lbs, it provides even better ergonomics to the shooter. The P415 simply will not fail when you need it most.

3) Receiver Tension Screws
4) Oversized Mag Well Flare
5) Ambidextrous Recessed Finger Rest
6) Ambidextrous Magazine Release
7) Oversized Integrated Trigger Guard w/ Grip Relief
8) Ambidextrous Bolt Hold Open
9) Available QD Rear Sling Mount
10) KNS Anti-Walk Pins
E2 DUAL-EXTRACTION TECHNOLOGY
POF’s patented E2 dual-extraction technology consists of four small channels cut into the walls of the chamber allowing a small amount of gas pressure to push against the neck of the spent case.
This pressure assists in extraction by breaking the seal between the chamber and case as well as pushing the spent case to the rear as the extractor is pulling to the rear.
ADJUSTABLE GAS SYSTEM
The POF adjustable gas system consists of three major components, the gas plug, gas piston and operating rod. Residual gasses behind the bullet are routed into the gas block which drives both the piston and the op rod rearward in turn cycling the firearm.
Suppressors add back pressure to a firearms operating system and thus increase bolt speed. This causes premature wear on the firearm and can even result in the bolt catching the discharged casing also known as “stove piping”.
The POF gas system allows the user to restrict, and even shut off, this extra back pressure by simply rotating the gas plug.
MODULAR RAILED RECEIVER
The patented Modular Railed Receiver (M.R.R) is POF’s crown jewel for precision and extreme rigidity. This is a two piece upper assembly with a free-floating monolithic handguard that slides on and interfaces directly to the upper assembly thanks to our upper’s reinforced backbone. This backbone is five-times thicker than standard flattop platforms.
The suspended handguard keeps your grip and accessories from weighing on the barrel and with the help of our wedge block, reduces stress and flex in the barrel extension area. This ensures both extreme rigidity and accuracy by directing stress risers toward the upper assembly’s strongest, most reinforced materials.
NITRIDE HEAT-TREATED BARREL & 3 PORT MUZZLE BRAKE
NITRIDE HEAT-TREATED BARREL
Every shooter knows that the beating heart of their rifle is their barrel. Our match-grade chrome-moly barrels are 5R button rifled with polygonal rifling for extreme accuracy and an incredible boost to bullet velocity compared to mil-spec AR barrels. We then finish our barrels with a Nitride Heat Treatment to Rockwell 70 hardness for unsurpassed strength, heat and corrosion resilience, and an average lifespan well into the tens of thousands of rounds. There is no better barrel on the market.
TRIPLE PORT MUZZLE BRAKE
Designed to precisely compliment the POF-USA platform; our nitride heat-treated muzzle brake controls gas dispersion and reduces muzzle rise. It is effective in allowing the shooter to have faster follow up shots and has unbelievably soft felt recoil. It features blunt strike prongs and includes our nitride heat-treated collar jam nut.
OVERSIZED HEAT SINK BARREL NUT
The patented oversized heat sink barrel nut is one of the most significant innovations. At three inches long it completely encompasses the chamber and throat area of the barrel where expanding gas temperatures peak. Take into account the radiation properties of aluminum compared to traditional steel and you have 17 times more heat dissipation than a standard AR. The barrel nut’s 3” length also gives the operating rod substantial guiding surface assuring constant positive contact with the bolt carrier.
The enhanced backbone receiver also move the upper’s natural stress point forward. This adds a massive amount of rigidity to the overall platform and is critical when vertical fore grips are being pulled on the upper assembly.
BOLT CARRIER GROUP & ROLLER CAM PIN
BOLT CARRIER GROUP
Our one piece high-phosphorus nickel coated bolt carrier is manufactured with the mechanical key built into the body and positioned behind the cam pin. This patented design helps reduce carrier tilt. Our bolt carrier group features a chrome plated bolt, extractor, and firing pin. The finishes are both corrosion resistant and introduce lubricious characteristics to the action.
Roller Cam Pin
The patented roller cam pin is just one more example of how POF strives to reduce friction and drag in the action. Standard AR cam pins feature a square steel head that literally grinds and carves away at the inside of the receiver.
POF’s NP3 coated roller head actually rolls inside the channel of the upper thus eliminating friction and prolonging the life of the upper.
ANTI-TILT BUFFER TUBE
|The mil-spec aluminum anti-tilt buffer tube features “carrier cradle” extensions to ensure that the carrier is always supported by the buffer tube even when the bolt carrier is fully forward. This prevents carrier tilt and premature wear of the buffer tube. The buffer detent now doubles as a lock that inhibits the buffer tube from rotating and becoming loose under adverse conditions. The anti-tilt buffer tube also features three drain holes.|

Patriot Ordnance Factory (POF-USA) manufactures and distributes law enforcement, military and civilian rifles in Phoenix, Arizona, and was the first manufacturer and seller of gas-piston-operated weapon systems on AR-style rifles in the United States. POF-USA was founded in 2002 by aerospace engineer Frank DeSomma with the intent of solving the most common problems with gas impingement AR15 systems. The company now holds numerous patents and awards for their products.
