After months of researching my purchase I decided on the CORE 15 - Scout - 100425.
The lay-away was available so I took advantage of it and paid my weapon off in about 6 weeks. Once it was paid for the shipping process was fast and sent to the FFL recommended by Buds - turns out it was only 3 miles from my home.
Picked up the CORE and even the guy at the FFL Dealer was impressed with the weapon even more after I told him what I paid for it with shipping and warranty.
The CORE came with a front site and 1 - 30 round magazine. It was late January so shooting my new M4 in western Pa was not an option with the snow and cold weather. So I did what any red blooded American would do and I popped off a single round in the back yard. Don't worry I have lots of land.
With the new CORE 15 cleaned up and well lubed I took to the range last week with 300 rounds. What a JOY to shoot and not a single jam or issue of any kind. What a great weapon, what a great price. I served in the US ARMY in the mid 70's and used the old M16 with full auto option, a rifle made by Colt that I fell in love with. Fast forward and my new CORE 15 is every bit as sweet. I did add a rear site, scope and sling for less than $125.00 and I was hitting dead center from 75 yards with just one adjustment on the scope. I told my son about my purchase and he went right to Buds and got a CORE M4 but a more dressed up version and he loves it. He spent 4 years in the USMC with 2 Combat Tours and he told me that the CORE was just as nice or better than the M4 he used in Afghanistan. The CORE 15 - SCOUT gets a 5 Star rating from me ***** / every aspect of the weapon exceeded my expectation and I will buy another CORE when needed. For the money I spent I got more than what I paid in the quality weapon I now own. Oh yea my CORE 15 SCOUT came with a Lifetime warranty. How can you go wrong.
Buds is great to deal with and their service is also 5 STAR. So if you are thinking about buying a CORE just do it and I can assure you, you will love it. Buds will not let you down.
Thank you Buds, it was a real pleasure and you will hear from me again when I need another weapon.
