Cobalt Kinetics is known for rolling out unique and innovative products and the company isn’t disappointing with its latest round of gun parts, announcing the state compliant Forged Upper Conversion Kit.
The Forged Upper Conversion Kit is designed to bring the company’s Model 27 rifle to AR-15 owners living in states ruled by strict gun legislation. The Forged Upper Conversion Kit offers an empty lower half — featuring a grip, stock, receiver extension, and a cheek rest. The kit has been styled in Cobalt’s “own signature aesthetic” and is constructed to work alongside most off-the-shelf AR upper receivers.
Designed from a solid block of 7075 T651 aluminum alloy, the upper has been machined to a contour so that it is compatible with other AR-15 parts. The Conversion Kit ships with the stripped lower and assembly hardware for the 13 stock components in addition to a buffer retainer, bolt catch screw, trigger guard and non-typical springs.
“We are proud of the Forged Upper Conversion Kit and we believe it’s the best way to maintain as much functionality as possible with the AR platform. It can be configured to be legal in all 50 states,” Skylar Stewart of Cobalt Kinetics said in a news release. “It’s ridiculous for responsible gun owners to be turned into criminals overnight by misguided laws. At this moment we’re hoping to help support and maintain the shooting culture in our country.”
The Forged Upper Conversion Kit is expected to hit the streets by mid-July with standard catalog color offerings of black, stainless, Cobalt Kinetics Green, FDE, Gray and Cobalt. The kit will retail for $699.
