Entry-level Practical Superiority

We started with our proven and premier EDGE rifle, and pared it down to the basics to create the EDGE-SCOUT. Like all Cobalt rifles, we build the SCOUT to a demanding standard. We have selected the internals and operating components to be both economical and robust; making cobalt ownership easy and rewarding for the practical shooter. The EDGE SCOUT is ideal for the armed professional as well as the hobbyist or home builder looking to customize his cobalt rifle.


The EDGE-SCOUT exploits all of Cobalt’s disruptive design influence. Our billet rifle stock adds balance, stability, and improves handling characteristics of the rifle. And beyond the aggressive design, we build the handguard to be utilitarian and M-lok compatible. We machine our upper and lower receivers from billets of 7075 aluminum, then mate and serialized them together to ensure product integrity.


Cobalt’s patented DUAL DROP adds new functionality to the AR-15 platform. The system allows the shooter to trip the bolt release with a thumb after a mag change; allowing the weapon to remain up and on target. The magazine release, selector lever, and charge handle on the SCOUT are all conventional single-side controls. The trigger is a classic AR-15 pattern mil-spec unit.

Operating System

We use a top quality, LiFe coated, full profile M-16 bolt group for long-service life and guaranteed operation under hard use. The SCOUT features a fixed gas block to ensure full power gas delivery to the bolt group, to ensure trouble-free operation in adverse conditions.


We make the barrel from 4150 chrome-moly steel and treated it in QPQ nitride to make it strong and long-lasting. The contour matches the standard government pattern; designed to be accurate and balanced. And to maintain peak performance, the barrels are chambered in 5.56 NATO with a  1-8″ twist rate.
