Shooting Team Member Kurt Gruber Reviews the Adams Arms C.O.R. Rifle and its Application in Competitive Shooting

From the bays of Rio Salado to the meadows of the Peacemaker National Training Center, and in a thousand spots in between, men and women can be found coming together weekly to test their skill; not with one gun, but with three.  3 Gun has become the fastest growing of the shooting sports in recent years.  There are many reasons for this, from reality TV shows such as Top Shot bringing shooting to mainstream America, 3 Gun Nation introducing the sport to TV audiences on a major network, to merely the challenge of demonstrating proficiency and excelling with three drastically different firearms as opposed to one.  Regardless of the reasons, this amazing growth has also created a huge market for competition specific rifles, pistols, and shotguns. 

It is with this market in mind that Adams Arms has released the new Competition Optic Ready, or C.O.R., rifle.  This new product demonstrates Adams Arms dedication not only to the shooting sports, but also to innovative design for the market a whole.  That innovation has become necessary as the 3 Gun Nation style of stage design, which seems to be focused equally on production and entertainment value and difficulty and marksmanship.  This newer style of stage design presents not only the opportunity but also really the need for a different profile of rifle to excel.
