New From Cobalt Kinetics: Model Twenty-Seven

Cobalt Kinetics’ new Twenty-Seven might end up being a good option for shooters in less-than-free states such as California. With four different versions in prices ranging from from $1,765 to $3,760 it had better be a really great rifle. And given our experience with Cobalt, that seems a good bet.

They’re also available in every color of the tactical rainbow including, yes, even tactical peanut butter.

From Cobalt’s website:

Twenty-Seven is a modern approach to the traditional semi-automatic rifle. The Twenty-Seven 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 while avoiding the legal restrictions associated with other semi-automatic rifles.  At only 5.5 inches tall from the bottom of the grip to the top of the optic mount, the Twenty-Seven fits in conventional gun cases and scabbards. The unique adaptable stock allows length of pull, drop, and cheek height to be configured to fit any shooter. The initial release of the Twenty-Seven offers four models, each in 2 trim levels to suit all types of shooting sports and applications.

The Twenty-Seven will be available in 5.56 NATO, 6.5 Grendel, .223 Wylde or, if you want an extra .001, you can get it in .224 Valkyrie. They start shipping May 1st, but you can order one now by clicking here (along with a few more steps and sending lots of money).

    I like. I’d need to get hands on one to be sure, but it looks slick.

    I remember playing with squirt guns when I was a kid growing up in Sacramento California. I had a really good time with those squirt guns. That might be your future.

  3. avatar TommyG says:

    I can build something pretty close for under $1000.

    that thing literally made me laugh out loud.

    1. avatar Bloving says:

      Were you visualizing someone shooting a 3-gun course while wearing Stormtrooper armor like I was? Were you the one being imagined in that armor… like I was?

  5. avatar Ing says:

    Unlike most fascist-state-compatible workarounds, that stock actually looks pretty good.

    The front end of that tactical green handguard reminds me of the carnivorous flowers from Mario Bros. for some reason.

      So decent AR to high end AR

      1. avatar emfourty gasmask says:

        Last I checked you can get a decent AR for under $700 these days.

        Unless, of course, you need to spend money on a rollmark.

    2. avatar Just the Facts says:

      Thordsen Custom; under $150 done.

      1. avatar Hannibal says:

        And it can be separated from the receiver.

  7. avatar Lost Down South says:

    Since it’s not closed, that isn’t considered a thumb hole?

    With every banned feature workaround the anti’s are going to have to add a paragraph of feature description to future bills. The banned feature descriptions are going to be 100+ pages long.

    1. avatar Mark N. says:

      Correct. It is not a thumbhole stock.

      1. avatar Francis says:

        The portion above the traditional stock is called a receiver extension and it is not connected to the stock, so legal problem solved. Of course the anti 2A libs will want to ban any modern rifle with a, “…protruding thingy just above the stocky part that you grab onto…”. The liberal courts are sure to agree that the Founders never envisioned such devices of war to be held by subjects (citizens). I agree that the Founders would prefer a pre-ban MSR.

    Eeeewwwwww gross get it away…

  9. avatar Mike Kelly says:

    The stock is the same as the one being produced and sold by Thordsen Custom. My nephews son has one on his ar, it’s solid and feels good.

    1. avatar Mark N. says:

      EP Armory also has one. Got an ad yesterday that they are on sale for $80. The Thordsen’s are really solid, and the new version looks almost like a regular stock. They sell for about $125 plus shipping. All of these are far superior to the fin grips, if quite a bit more expensive.

  10. avatar GFleming says:

    There is a company called AirForce that makes really futuristic looking air rifles. That Cobalt rifle looks a lot like that.

  11. avatar Vic Nighthorse says:

    A rifle for a Dirk Benedict character.

  12. avatar Frank says:

    There seems to be no information on the company site on the weight of these beasts. That is usually a bad sign. Nice to look at, but too heavy to carry. Maybe it would make a good bench gun.

  13. avatar Moltar says:

    Thank God the antis haven’t figured out they could just about wipe out the AR platform by making the buffer tube an assault weapon feature….

    1. avatar Francis says:

      Not really. Olympic Arms makes an AR pistol upper that has the buffer mechanism in a raised compartment where the carry handle would be located. This could be used for rifle receivers as well if designed as a rifle. Another solution is made by Fightlite Industries. They have a lower that is configured as a traditional rifle stock with a receiver profile that has an ergonomic trigger profile and at the same time accepts AR mags. Flightlife recevers accept AR uppers. The bolt carrier uses an extension rat tail like a FAL. If you use an upper that has no muzzle device or attachment lug, the rifle is no different aesthetically than a Mini-14.

  14. avatar Gun Free School Zones are a crime against humanity says:

    I got an 91-30. I’ll use it to get a ‘real’ assault weapon when the time comes.

  15. avatar Michael in AK says:

    I like the look. Tired of everything looking the same

  16. avatar ironicatbest says:

    If they’d scale it down to .9mm add a couple fishhooks and drop the price

  17. avatar Micah says:

    That stock looks dumb. There, I said it.

  18. avatar Tim says:

    I haven’t looked at a gun store AR for awhile, but the baseline price seems high at $1,800. I understand the political climate that brought the gun into being but for someone looking for a home defense platform, it seems a steep price. The thing looks like it would be sweet for a day at the range or shooting invasive critters, but that is a lot of gun for someone who plinks and wants to protect their family. After all isn’t the design for the express purpose of putting a rifle into the hands of a customer living in a politically hostile environment? In more gun friendly states, a base level AR at $700 allows a customer to get a decent rifle, learn to handle it and then as their skill grows, add on upgrades or improvements; better triggers, better quality bolts, etc. and work their way into a higher quality gun as they can afford it or see the need for.

    You could always, you know, buy a PSA for $500, pin a 10 round mag and load it with a bear flag defense or mean arms speed loader through the ejection port. That way you get to keep all the “evil” features like foregrips, 5-position stocks, and muzzle brakes.

    Or you could be a sucker and buy this instead of dropping $700 on a featureless Mini-14.
