Patriot Ordnance Factory, known for unique designs like its Revolution rifle and Phoenix large-format pistol, announced the launch of one of the company's most innovative designs: the Tombstone lever-action rifle. Unlike traditional lever-action designs, the Tombstone is chambered in 9 mm Luger and feeds from a 20-round detachable box magazine. POF-USA bills the gun as the "first-ever 9 mm production lever-action."

“The Tombstone has been in the works for quite a while now, and it's truly representative of what POF-USA is all about, revolutionizing the original lever-action design with enhancements” said Jeremy Selting, vice president of sales and marketing, POF-USA. “The feedback from writers who have reviewed the Tombstone has been extremely positive, with the common theme being that the rifle is extremely enjoyable and fun to shoot."

Built on a unique aluminum receiver, the POF-USA Tombstone incorporates an enlarged, angular lever loop for loading. Sitting atop the receiver is a milled Picatinny rail for optics, which includes an integrated ghost-ring rear sight from XS Sights. At the rear of the receiver is an external hammer, which provides a half-cock position for safety, and the gun's proprietary, non-adjustable straight trigger is set for a 3.5-lb. pull weight.

Mated to the receiver is a 16.5" fluted barrel machined from 4150 steel that's free-floated and threaded 1/2-28 TPI at the muzzle. Each rifle includes a removable dual-port muzzle brake. Surrounding the barrel is POF's 10.5" Modular Receiver Rail handguard with Picatinny rail segments located at the 12- and 6-o'clock positions at the muzzle end. The rail segment at the 12-o'clock position incorporates a front-sight blade. Along the sides of the rail, at the 3- and 9-o'clock positions, are five M-Lok accessory slots. Sockets for push-button sling attachment are located at either end of the M-Lok slots. At the butt end of the gun is Magpul's SGA 870 stock, and the POF-USA Tombstone is compatible with other aftermarket buttstocks designed for the Remington 870.

Each POF-USA Tombstone measures in at an overall length of 36", and unloaded, the gun weighs 5.75 lbs. Each rifle ships with a single 20-round magazine, and a shorter 10-round magazine is available for capacity-restricted states. The suggested retail price on the all-black Tombstone lever-action rifle is $1,962, while the FDE model retails for $2,097. For more information, visit
