The 1984 CJ-7 on these pages had done just that, but it was starting to feel worse for wear when owner Frank DeSomma decided the old iron needed a refresh. The 35-year-old body had seen a lot of desert and had taken some rock beatings.

The original plan was to install a new aluminum body and a few upgrades, but the project expanded well beyond that, and the results came out well. Frank is the president of Patriot Ordnance Factory, a premium firearms manufacturer in Glendale, Arizona. He wanted a vehicle with a striking personality, but one he could use on weekends to take out to explore desert trails and carry him to his favorite hunting and sport shooting spots.
For the build, Frank called on the fabrication expertise of Ian Liljeblad and his crew at Random Precision Mfg. ( in Phoenix.

POF's founder and president, Frank ... [cached]

POF's founder and president, Frank DeSomma, was an aerospace engineer with no prior experience in firearms design, but in 2002 he set out to solve the two most vexing problems plaguing the U. S. military M16 and M4 platforms: excessive carbon fouling, and the M4's short-barreled timing issue.

DeSomma realized that these problems never existed in the M1 Garand, M1 Carbine and M14, all of which employed gas-piston operating systems, so he reasoned that if an effective, easily regulated, gas-piston system could be designed for the M16/M4, these reliability issues would go away. The principal result of his efforts was the POF Regulated Short-Stroke Gas Piston System, but while he was at it DeSomma re-engineered the entire weapon system to maximize functioning, reliability and accuracy.
