SHOT Show 2017 Industry Day: Shooting Cobalt Kinetics MSR … Guns or Art?


When I first encountered Cobalt Kinetics MSRs in 2015, I saw they truly are “Art and attitude in an AR.

In a world swimming in Mil-Spec rifles, Cobalt Kinetics decided to depart from the mainstream entirely.

Kudos to them.

At Industry Day Monday, Cobalt’s representative Connor Degnan showed me that the plucky firm hasn’t stood still. They’ve created a novel new rifle that ejects empty mags and releases the bolt of a full mag totally on its own.

You have to see it to believe it.
