Cobalt Kinetics is BACK and BETTER than Ever!

Monday, July 26th, 2021

July 23rd, 2021: Cobalt Kinetics, a manufacturer of American Masterpiece firearms; is proud to announce the re-launching of the famed brand. Cobalt started initially in 2014 and immediately became a statement brand by releasing their highly polished, competition grade rifles. Competitive shooters from all different disciplines saw podium level victories with their original Cobalt rifles, and that pedigree for performance is still in Cobalt’s DNA today. With the recent re-launch of the brand Cobalt the new management has taken the opportunity to update the brand to encapsulate consumer needs from all different arenas (Defense, Tactical, LE/MIL, and Competition).

The “Cobalt 2.0” updated series of firearms falls under the BAMF-Pro line of carbines/ pistols, and all of them have received major updates. From incorporating seamless upper receiver to lower receiver fitment, to creating a hybrid-mono handguard system all changes have had the end user in mind. To add to the new thirst for evolution, Cobalt has also teamed up with brands like; Rosco Manufacturing (barrels), Geissele Automatics (triggers), Radian Weapons (charging handles), VLTOR Weapons (A5 tube system), B5 Systems (furniture), and SB Tactical (pistol braces). All these items now come as standard OEM pieces when you purchase a BAMF-Pro line rifle/ pistol.

As an even SWEETER incentive to run a Cobalt, Cobalt Kinetics has secured financing through Credova for purchases made directly through their website. You heard right! You can configure your dream build today and not worry about paying it off right away. Head to Cobalt Kinetics to configure your blaster now!

“We are extremely excited to be back and working to bring consumers the best rifle that we can produce. It is a pure joy to be able to do what we love, to provide shooters a platform designed/ built by shooters. We are also excited about being able to offer financing to all perspective Cobalt owners. Having an organization like Credova willing to offer financing in the 2A community is a breath of fresh air. The opportunity to offer this option to our customer gives them the power to purchase a platform that they can use for defense, recreation, etc. Bigger things are on the horizon for our brand, so I would suggest that folks stay tuned.”

-Aaron Quinn (Owner/ CEO)

Culper Precision modified a genuine GLOCK pistol by adding bright colors to the pistol and covering the exterior of the pistol in materials that mimic toy Lego blocks.

GLOCK was made aware of the “BLOCK19” from news articles and through public concerns posted on social media. GLOCK is not affiliated with Culper Precision or its products. GLOCK had no involvement in the design or sale of the “BLOCK19.” GLOCK does not endorse customization of its pistols, specifically, a pistol that has been customized to look like a toy.

Blaser Introduces the R8 Rifle in 6.5 PRC

Tuesday, July 13th, 2021

San Antonio, Texas (July 13, 2021) – Blaser is pleased to now offer its iconic R8 modular rifle in a 6.5 PRC chambering.  Known for its accuracy and long-range performance, the 6.5 Precision Rifle Cartridge is essentially a magnum version of the 6.5 Creedmoor with a flatter trajectory and higher impact velocity making it a favorite of long-range hunters.

The straight-pull R8 bolt-action rifle, renowned for its reliability, repeatability, speed, and precision, offers hunters a vast number of configurations to meet their needs in the field.  Options include a wide array of stock options, a recoil reduction system, adjustable comb, adjustable length of pull, and numerous barrels and bolt heads to facilitate quick conversions to different calibers, depending on the type of game one is hunting.

“If you combine all the different standard options on an R8, you can build over 47 million unique rifles and that does not even include custom shop options,” said Jason Evans, CEO, Blaser Group. “The interchangeability makes it incredibly easy to convert your rifle from one caliber to another by simply switching out the barrel and bolt head.  This can be done in less than a minute. The engineering and craftsmanship is so extraordinary, after any barrel change, the rifle will shoot to within 1/2 MOA every time.“

The compact overall length and modularity of the Blaser R8 offer distinct advantages to hunters who travel frequently, allowing them to carry one rifle with several different barrels instead of transporting multiple guns around the world.  The Blaser Saddle Mount system allows for easy and precise mounting of a riflescope by allowing the one-piece base of the mount to fit into notches machined into the top of the free-floating barrel.  The barrel and saddle mount become one accurate unit, ensuring absolute repeatability once the scope has been zeroed, regardless of how many times the scope is removed from the barrel.  The R8‘s concentric locking lugs with 14 locking surfaces provide 360-degree enagagement, further enhancing accuracy.  This rifle also features one of the safest actions in the world thanks to its highly-acclaimed manual cocking mechanism.

The R8 is available in numerous calibers from 204 Ruger to 500 Jeffrey.  For more information visit www.blaser-usa.com.

“While TROY has enjoyed a very successful period of growth in Massachusetts, the changing climate for firearms manufacturers in the state determined the need for our relocation to Tennessee to ensure the continued success of the company. We are excited to begin this new venture and appreciate all the support we have already received from Representative Mark Green, Governor Bill Lee and the state of Tennessee in making this relocation possible.”
