I'm looking into getting the POF P-415 -16-p12sx-cf upper. I noticed the one i'm lookin to get has a different roller cam shape. It's more square. And on the POF's website the roller cam is round. I was wondering what does that mean? Is it for more aesthetic purpose or is there advantage of having a round roller pin compared to a squared one? I wanted to find out before I make a purchase. Here are 2 pics of the different roller cam:

Hey Man! How goes the quest? Here's the skinny on the roller cam: The standard cam pin makes a mark or "scrape" on the inside of the upper (just behind the cut-out the cam pin sit in when the rifle is in battery) when the BCG is driven back. It's really not that big an issue and even DI guns get the mark... just not as soon as Piston guns. The roller cam will stop that mark from appearing. POF has some pretty Great customer support and it wouldn't surprise me if they put one on your POF rifle for free. They upgraded my piston parts to the current generation for free. Give Chris or Kieth a call.

Hey whats up one shot. Damn what is your name by the way? Instead of calling you one shot LOL unless that's what you like to be called. The journey is a pain the F***in ass. I'm a very picky person when it comes to things that I want. Especially if i'm not to familiar with the product (AR). Of course I will try to keep educating my self on the AR's. Sometimes i wish i wasn't so picky and just get something lol.

I'm not getting it from pof. I'm buying it on gunbroker. Well hopefully i will win the auction. Finally someone i got an answer regarding the roller cam. Thanks. I will give them a call if and when I get the pof upper and see if they would give me a free upgrade. they may charge me. If so, i'm wondering how much it will cost. Might be pretty expensive.

Do you know when the new roller cam will be available? I called avguns.com and the told me that the new roller cam is not available yet.

Chris.

You guys haven't read much of the past posts in this forum have you? There is a TON of info in here regarding the exact thing you are talking about. There arent that many posts in here either compared to other threads. Shouldn't be hard to find.

i tried typing this in the search but nothing came up.

I went ahead and made a bid on the pof. Hopefully will get it.
