I stopped by and talked to the Cobalt Kinetics Crew at Media Day today. I had a chance to take a look at their line-up of rifles, which were very impressive. The fit and machining of these rifles are top-notch.
The BAMF (Billet Aluminum Manufactured Firearm) features a collapsible stock and a linear muzzle break and MSRP’s for around $2595. The EDGE rifle (no photo available at the time of this writing) is similar to the BAMF, though it features a billet fixed stock and side-ported muzzle brake and MSRP’s for around $2995.
The new EVOLVE rifle features a new buffer system, which was extremely smooth and can be fine-tuned to each rifle with different buffer weights. The EVOLVE also features the new EVOLVE muzzle break. The pricing has yet to be set.
The EVOLVE Pro Butt Stock ($TBD) features a Rifle Length System with three-way adjustments (cheek weld, pull length and height of the butt pad). The EVOLVE Pro Butt Stock is only currently available to fit Cobalt Kinetics rifles, but may be available for all AR-platforms in the future.
The following is a press release from Cobalt Kinetics regarding the launch of their new Digital Store and some newly offered AR‘s.
Cobalt Kinetics today launched its digital store and is now offering the critically-acclaimed B.A.M.F. and B.A.M.F. Edge AR-15 platform rifles for immediate purchase through CobaltKinetics.com.
St. George, UT (PRWEB) September 09, 2015
Cobalt Kinetics, an American firearms manufacturer based in St. George, Utah, today launched the Cobalt Kinetics digital store and is now offering the critically-acclaimed B.A.M.F. and B.A.M.F. Edge AR-15 platform rifles for immediate purchase through http://www.cobaltkinetics.com.
“Today, after a long journey in pursuit of perfection and precision, we are excited to launch the Cobalt Kinetics digital store and announce that the B.A.M.F. and B.A.M.F. Edge are on sale and available for immediate purchase,” said Jeremy Lamb, Marketing and Sales Director of Cobalt Kinetics. “We are looking forward to working with dealers and local F.F.L.s to deliver our B.A.M.F.s and accessories to our growing customer base worldwide.”
Cobalt Kinetics first introduced the B.A.M.F. line of AR-15s at SHOT SHOW 2015 to much industry fanfare and praise. In June 2015 the company initiated the pre-sale for the B.A.M.F. and B.A.M.F. Edge and were met with an overwhelming response from gun enthusiasts and industry experts alike. Today, the guns are available for immediate purchase online, exclusively through CobaltKinetics.com.
“If you find yourself wanting to have an AR that stands out in a sea of Black Rifles, you might want to check out Cobalt Kinetics,” wrote AR15News.com July 22, 2015 in a post titled, A Look at the Head Turning ARs of Cobalt Kinetics. “They have some extremely unique AR’s with very cool lines and even a new feature or two.”
Following a range test of the B.A.M.F., Tom Rader of The FireArms Blog wrote, “…the pure design aesthetics are amazing, from the cleanly beveled edges to the clean laser-cut markings. The B.A.M.F. Edge maintains an aggressive look while retaining ergonomic modifications that are subtle and, most definitely, functional.”
The B.A.M.F. is designed to deliver unprecedented form, function and performance while also respecting the time-honored AR-15 platform. The B.A.M.F.’s custom-made parts are machined from aircraft-grade 7075-T6-billet aluminum to ultra-precise tolerances, making the gun strong and versatile, yet tight and stable. A beveled magazine well allows for faster, smoother reloading in critical situations. Threaded pins enable faster and easier breakdown and assembly.
Cobalt Kinetics’s dual bolt release transforms the traditional forward assist button into a single-handed operation that allows the shooter to drop the bolt from both sides of the upper receiver. For the first time in an AR-15 platform, the shooter can release the bolt and pull the trigger almost simultaneously. The dual bolt release saves critical seconds on reloads, minimizes sight time off the target and enables faster, more precise shooting, especially in high adrenaline situations.
Following is Cobalt Kinetic’s AR-15 Specifications:
Caliber: 223 Wylde
Controls: Ambidextrous, 45 Degree Safety Selector, Dual Drop Bolt Release, Extended Mag Release, Left and Right Mag Release, Left and Right Charging Handle, Threaded Pins
American firearms manufacturer, Cobalt Kinetics, based in St. George, Utah, started with a single mission to re-imagine and remake one of America’s most revered and popular guns: the AR-15 platform rifle. Cobalt Kinetics premiered the B.A.M.F. featuring exciting advancements, elegant lines, and precision beyond industry standards at Shot Show 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The company has a patent-pending for B.A.M.F.’s dual bolt release technology.
