Adcor B.E.A.R.

posted on March 4, 2013

The AR platform is easily the most popular rifle in the United States, and has been for years. While many offerings vary only cosmetically, a few companies have introduced designs with functional improvements on the nearly 60-year-old system.

One such company is Adcor Defense, and its Brown Enhanced Automatic Rifle (or B.E.A.R. for short) is a new evolution of Eugene Stoner’s design.

You can get a closer look at the B.E.A.R. in the video below, hosted by Shooting Illustrated's Ed Friedman.
