The Tombstone 9MM is POF-USA’s try at a lever-action rifle. Tombstone is a modern lever-action, now chambered in a pistol caliber, and the company’s first-ever lever-action firearm. The rifle comes with the same proven proprietary 20-round standard magazine, or optional 10-round, that accompanies the POF-USA Phoenix. The Tombstone’s compact overall length is just 36” and comes in at an ultra-lightweight 5.75 Pounds (unloaded.)

“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…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.” – Jeremy Selting, Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

THE RECEIVER & FURNITURE

The aluminum receiver is complimented by a Magpul SGA Stock, and POF’s 10.5” Modular Receiver Rail (M.R.R.) handguard which is equipped with M-Lok slots at the 3, 6, 9, and a 2” Picatinny rail at the 12 o’clock position.

The trigger is a proprietary non-adjustable design, featuring a smooth pull and crisp break of 3.5 pounds allowing for quick target acquisition. The Tombstone features an oversized throw lever, a cross bolt safety, and a half-cocked hammer safety position.

THE BARREL

The 16.5” free-floating, fluted 4150 steel barrel is equipped with POF’s 1/2×28 threaded, removable dual port muzzle break which is ideal for fast follow-up shots.
