      Alex C. is I’d imagine just as not working here as he’s been since like early 2016…

    Gun companies need to trying to ripoff the AR-18 or the FN Scar by dressing up an AR. It just isn’t going to happen.

      What are you talking about? The cobalt kinetics rifle has nothing to do with an ar-18 or scar. Not name, function, physical appearance, etc.

      One can argue that the feature set is questionable, but that’s about it.

        Yes, i tought the same, what the hell is he talking about the Ar18 and Scar, when this is an COMPETITION AR with auto mag drop and auto bolt release… , hes totally off, litterally miles off.

      Gun companies need to stop trying to rip off the AR15 by dressing up their proprietary system. Which came first: the AR15, AR18, or SCAR?

      So what youre saying is that since Im not “the best” (a definitely subjective definition) I should just go home and try something different.

      First off, who are you to say that a SCAR or AR18 is the best rifle for everyone shooting a rifle?

      Second, who are you to say that the AR15 isnt the best rifle for at least one person in at least one situation?

      Third, how is this unique feature comparable to a SCAR or AR18?

      By the way, SCARs are prohibitively expensive for all gun owners and not a single soul cares about AR18s. See I can make blanket statements that are obviously not always correct too.

    Everyone is throwing Kinetic into their name these days…

    • noob

      I guess it is to distinguish it from a Psy, Cyber, Info or CBRN gun company.

    I like the whole idea. Why do I want to keep an empty mag in my rifle? I suppose I might turn it off while at a range, if I were zeroing the rifle or something similar. I wonder if they would license it for a handgun?
