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.
