I’ve been meaning to doing a write up on the new Adams Arms COR (Competition Optics Ready) complete upper so when our friends at RifleGear.com emailed me and said they had some in-stock it seemed like the perfect time to make it happen. This new upper is a very nice rifle length competition upper built off the awesome Adams Arms piston system but it seems like it would be a nice fit for someone looking for a high quality, lightweight upper that is a breeze to shoot as well. I personally have not had the pleasure of shooting the COR Upper yet but I would love to some day. I’ve heard a few people who have shot it say its the lightest, smoothest shooting upper they’ve ever shot. With a price-tag of $998 it won’t be a right fit for everyone but its definitely a sweet upper and lots of bang for the buck even at that price. Check out the pics and specs for the new Adams Arms COR upper below. If you like what you see, head on over to www.RifleGear.com to snag one for yourself.
Designed with competition shooters, the new C.O.R. Upper is the optimal setup for competitive shooting and is ready to go right out of the box! (just add an optic) This upper was designed with a comprehensive approach to create the lowest felt recoil pulse while maintaining ultimate accuracy and maneuverability. The VDI Ultra-Lite Barrel runs extremely light and accurate. Our New Low Mass Carrier and Rifle Length System significantly reduces felt recoil, and the VDI Jet Comp virtually eliminates muzzle rise for follow
