It sounds like a pretty good name for an action flick. “Fast Eddie and the Bear Claw.” It’s not a show, though; they are a pair of AR designs specced out by Cobalt Kinetics for two pro shooters: Don Edwards of Greenline Tactical and John Dufresne of Kinetic Consulting. 

We have a few details for you.

You can see the Don Edwards/Greenline Tactical short-barreled rifle in the picture above. Fast Eddie is an assembly of high-end parts on a CK-Pro receiver set with a custom Cerakote “paint job.” It starts with a 13.9-inch K9 barrel by Rosco Manufacturing (a very well-respected manufacturer of AR barrels) with Cobalt Kinetics RCB-KM Dead Air KeyMo on the end. The RCB-KM is a port-system muzzle device. It mitigates recoil, but just as importantly—at least for the folks who’ll be interested in this particular rifle—it will support any of the Dead Air brand suppressors that utilize the “Key mo” quick disconnect adapter. Rosco’s K9 barrels have a continuous taper they say is the most effective profile to dissipate heat.

“Furniture” on the Fast Eddie includes a Reptilia RECCE stock and a Reptilia carbine grip. The former (pronounced wreck-y, short for reconnaissance) was recently released by Reptilia Corp. and has proven very popular. The latter might not seem like a big deal, but it is. The grip angle on Reptilia’s CQG differs from what you’ll see on a “normal” AR grip. It’s intended to be ergonomically superior to standard grips when used with SBRs, PDWs, and the like and its geometry encourages shooters to have their hand higher up on the grip for better control.

Bear Claw

The Kinetic Consulting/Jon Dufresne carbine is also an SBR. It begins with an 11.5-inch K9 barrel (also from Rosco Manufacturing), which is a design that has weight shifted to the back. That weight is counterbalanced by a muzzle device, in this case, (also) the Cobalt Kinetics RCB-KM Dead Air KeyMo. This is intended to create a better-balanced rifle that is easy to manipulate.

The Bear Claw, too, will be built around a CK-Pro receiver with a custom Cerakote job. A selection of accessories will be available.
