View Full Version : ADCOR AR-15
Stopped by River City Gun Exchange and they showed me this ADCOR piston rifle. Its a piston driven AR15 with Side Charging handle. It also has your standard rear charging handle. Looks great. A friend of mine just got one and put 500 rounds through it. He is pretty happy. The upper is also monolithic and the bolt carry group appears to be hard chromed. Its a pretty cool rifle for those of us looking for something different!

I got my ADCOR B.E.A.R back in April. It is a nice rifle. I bought it specifically for the side charging handle (I'm a Lefty) and the free float piston system. Though it is nice, after putting 800rnds through it and really comparing it to my POF P415, I decided to put up the ADCOR up 4-sale. The plastic "wiper" system on the ejection door is cool too
Appears to be a pretty solid gun. My friend that owns one really likes it for the piston design and reliability. I'm gonna try and get together with him soon so that I can check it out. What about the POF P415 that you liked better over the BEAR?

I like the rifle.I have an PWS piston ,ASA side charging upper ,with a full lenght Daniel defense handguard,fluted 16 inch barrell .It is so much easier to shoot with a side charging handle.Dont have to take you eyes off the target.

The upper isn't monolithtic. Its a proprietory (sp?) Two piece upper.

What you liked better over the BEAR?
POF uses Billet Aluminum lower receiver & a Billet Steel upper receiver. Ambi controls on the bolt release. Entire interior of the upper receiver, bolt & charging handle are all coated with NP3 for added lubricity. The BCG is Chromed.
As I stated before, I love the fact ADCOR has that side charging handle. That was it's main selling point for me.
