Medal of Honor Recipient Clinton Romesha and the Adcor A-556 Elite

posted on January 14, 2014

Though Adcor Industries has long been in business as a national defense supplier, it's civilian side, Adcor Defense, remains relatively new to the firearms industry. That hasn't prevented it from making quite the impact, though-namely with its Adcor A-556 Elite, which sports a revolutionary gas piston system as one of its multiple patents.

As you might expect, Adcor brought the rifle to SHOT Show 2014's Media Day at the Range. The company dialed things up a notch, though, by assemling a specialized training scenario and inviting Medal of Honor recipient Clinton Romesha to play instructor to any interested media members.

Get a closer look at the Adcor rifle and see Shooting Illustrated's Adam Heggenstaller in action on the course with the video embedded below.
