The Dual Drop system includes an additional forward assist on the left side of the rifle. Both forward assist mechanisms can be used to release the bolt forward, Additional details and specifications can be found below.
ST GEORGE, Utah, April 14 – Cobalt Kinetics, a manufacturer of premium performance and precision engineered rifles, today announces their new Edge Scout. Based on Cobalt’s proven premier Edge rifle and crafted to the same quality from matched and mated 7075 billet aluminum chassis components, while reducing costs through budget furniture, the Scout fills a gap in the Cobalt Kinetics rifle line.
Vice President Skylar Stewart said, “We have listened to feedback from dealers and the public about the desire for Cobalt’s performance and precision in an entry level package. Our new Scout fills that gap allowing us to offer our renowned functionality in a lower price tier.“
Chambered in 5.56 NATO, the Scout features the patented Dual-Drop system with a 16 inch Chrome Moly barrel tipped with a standard A2 Flash Hider.
The Bolt Carrier Group is black nitride finished, complementing the receivers, stock, and handguard which are Cerakoted in sniper gray. The rifle also has a standard mil-spec trigger.
The Scout makes Cobalt ownership easier for the budget conscience shooter, by utilizing off the shelf furniture and controls that can be end user replaced without compromising the core functionality that sets Cobalt products apart. It is ideal for the armed professional as well as the do-it-yourself shooter looking to customize a Cobalt rifle to suit individual taste or needs.
