Any-State Compliant AR-15 from Cobalt Kinetics

Twenty-Seven is a modern approach to the traditional semi-automatic rifle. The Sentry Model 27 delivers the familiar feel of a classic hunting rifle, melded with the utility and versatility of the modern sporting rifle. The unique lower receiver and stock have been carefully designed to deliver ideal comfort and handling.

Not Just California Compliant

At first glance, one might just assume “California legal” which it is. But Cobalt insists this was not the reason for its creation. Cobalt’s designers set out to make a more traditionally proportioned rifle; one that is more familiar to traditional shooters who enjoy the feel of the M-14 or the wood-stocked hunting rifles of last century. The stock geometry approximates that of the best classically designed hunting rifles made, while the stock remains fully configurable for length of pull and drop at the buttplate. The shape and angle of the grip is comfortable and places the hand in perfect location slightly above and behind the trigger.

This new rifle is clearly based on the AR-15 platform- it uses many modern AR-15 components. Owners of the Twenty-Seven will enjoy the modular nature and ease of maintenance of the AR platform.

The proportions of the Twenty-Seven make it more compact than the typical AR-15- it’s only 5.5” tall- so it fits in any normal sized case or scabbard. AR-15 owners have become accustomed to buying a “double rifle case” to transport just a single rifle. In the case of the Twenty-Seven, two guns can once again fit in a double case. It also fits neatly in a scabbard found on an ATV or horse.

The Twenty-Seven can be configured to avoid any legal restrictions pertaining to the physical or mechanical arrangement of a rifle’s grip and stock and trigger.

Configure to State-Specific Restrictions

While being designed to meet multiple criteria of comfort, utility, and appeal, the Twenty-Seven can be configured to avoid any legal restrictions pertaining to the physical or mechanical arrangement of a rifle’s grip and stock and trigger. The lower edge of the receiver, above the trigger has been lowered .150” while the web of the grip has been raised significantly. This satisfies most states’ definitions to avoid being classified as a “pistol grip”. As to the rest of the rifle, all four model trim levels are offered in compliant variations to meet most legal limits as it pertains to muzzle threads or muzzle devices.

Vice president at Cobalt, Skylar Stewart had this to add:

We’ve been talking about this at Cobalt for a long time… to create a more traditional rifle that uses modern components to improve performance. We have had a lot of requests for a semi-automatic rifle more suited for hunters and other sportsmen. I don’t like to compare it to other AR-15s. It does use many of the internal components of the AR-15, but we believe that it’s a step up from the old bolt action rifle.

Eventually we will adapt this design to our XL lineup (large frame .308 pattern). That will really open up the possibilities for medium to big game hunters. We’re looking back in time for inspiration while also looking ahead. 27 is the atomic number for the element Cobalt. The twenty-seven line is a return to fundamentals.

Now taking pre-orders. Deliveries begin May 1st.
