The Adcor Defense B.E.A.R. springs from the M4/M16 rifle platform, but offers a completely new twist. A gas-driven piston incorporated into the upper half of the forward rail system never touches the barrel. Hot gases and carbon particulates are prevented from entering the receiver; because heat reaching the upper receiver is diminished, lubricant lasts longer and maintenance is simplified. Adcor's exclusive port dust wiper prevents entry of dust, sand, or debris. The simple design of the ambidextrous, forward-placed charging handle allows the operator to keep his or her strong hand on the firearm and use the other hand to clear the rifle. An innovative, key locked, highly rigid rail system mounts seamlessly to the upper receiver, ensuring proper alignment of the rail with a redesigned boss, spline, and groove system.
The B.E.A.R. Elite has a button-broached, chrome-lined barrel with a 1 in 7" twist. With a custom 6-position rifle stock and custom ergonomic rifle grip with aggressive texturing, the B.E.A.R. Elite provides a secure, comfortable platform for shooters of any size of skill level. The two-piece keyed quad rail system offers plenty of space for optics and accessory mounting. The Aircraft-grade 7075-T6 aluminum alloy receiver and rail system are durable and lightweight.
