Well I can’t say that any longer because the POF Revolution while not a true AR-15 it comes really close from a size perspective with all the related parts.

The following information will help you truly understand the differences between the design of the Revolution vs the AR10 platform.
The Colt 901 was the first attempt at reducing the size of the large action/frame of the AR10. DPMS mimicked the design and showed the GII two years later at Shot Show.
