Product Description

EDGE Handguard Details

The EDGE handguard was designed to stand out from the rest- to make a statement. It improves the visual appeal of your rifle while enhancing feel and balance. The handguard adds 1.3” of useable Picatinny rail to your upper. It also integrates 2 Picatinny sections near the muzzle; for back-up iron sights and a bipod. Three full-length rows of M-Lok pockets maximize versatility. Four QD sling mounting points are machined into the handguard. The handguard is machined from an 11 lb block of solid 7075 aluminum. We choose billet over extrusion as it provides a more consistent, strong, and straight finished product. The handguard is finished in Armor Black Cerakote (please inquire for color options). The barrel nut is black oxide finished 1144 steel, and the handguard mounting collar is 7075 aluminum, type 2 black anodized.


The mounting nut provided with our handguard allows for infinite timing positions to orient the handguard with any brand upper receiver. Also, the gap between the receiver and the handguard is minimized. The included wrench fits any 1/2″ square drive socket wrench, breaker bar, or torque wrench.

Be sure to read and follow the included instructions when installing the handguard. Proper installation requires the use of a low-profile gas block measuring no more than .790 from the center-line of the barrel.

Cutting Edge


Cobalt will never be satisfied with the status quo. We are always asking – Why? With our imagination, incredible engineers, and a desire to improve; we are constantly innovating an already amazing platform. We continue to explore how our innovative improvements can make you a faster and more accurate shooter. Innovation is at the core of who we are.

Military Grade


We torture test our rifles and pistols in the most extreme conditions, from the snow to the desert heat, they will function in any environment. The tight tolerances of the firearms protect the internal components from external elements. We Cerakote all our firearms to add to the durability. Multiple sources have reported that they have run our firearms in excess of the 50,000 rounds mark.

Match Grade


Our components are precisely engineered to the tightest tolerances. Our standards far exceed that of other manufacturers. We included match grade barrels and premium triggers in every firearm to enhance accuracy. Our Pro Buffer comes standard to reduce recoil allowing faster follow up shots. From the aggressive look and design to the quality of the components within, we are committed to assembling the finest firearms in the industry.



Every angle we cut, and every component we use, serves a function in our overall design that must be shot to be fully appreciated. At Cobalt Kinetics we source premium parts to compliment our high tolerances and precision engineering. Each component undergoes a strict quality control check before being installed into our firearms.

The Cobalt Truth

I handled one of these at Firearms Unlimited in Exeter, RI. I have handled and fired a lot of AR’s in my lifetime but the fit and finish on this one is I have to say is the absolute best. I dare you guys or anyone to make a better one.

Thomas Neves
Picked up my first cobalt AR this week. As far as an AR rifle, this I will say is the best elaborate weapons system I have run across as of today…the machine work and design with dual operation components are outstanding. The only thing that would make my rifle any better would be if it was in Tennessee orange and white lol.

Danny Hall
No other AR comes this close to perfection on the market today. Fit, finish, function far surpass anything else, and dual drop means always having the drop in any tactical situation.
