I am really impressed with the rifle; only gripe is that it came with a 1;9 twist instead of a 1;7 twist bore. Talked to Core warranty dept. and they said they would make it right. Sent rifle back to Core for barrel swap and now waiting for rifle to return. Buds shipping time was a bit slow (10 days) but thats not so bad. Will make another purchase soon.

Picked this rifle up from my FFL today. Shipping was slow,(10 days) but I wasn't in no hurry. Fit and finish are awesome! The hand guards/rails are very high quality. I am not sure what brand they are, but they are pretty cool. Magpul accessories are awesome. The whole rifle is mil spec and the over all quality is VERY GOOD. I was in the Marines as an 0311 rifleman and this Core 15 is way better than the new FN Herstal M4 carbines we got.

The only thing I would recommend is changing the trigger. It's a basic mil spec type with nothing special. Other than that the rifle is perfect!

I will be doing business again with Buds.

My experience with Bud's gun shop was outstanding! The weapon system was well built with quality parts really didn't find any deficiencies other than there being a minor space between the upper and lower receiver. All and all my experience was good! I am definitely going to return and do business with Bud's gun shop.

Took exactly 2 weeks to get to my local FFL. Inspected rifle and everything was good to go. No scratches or anything. Checked the guts and everything looked good and properly functioned.

This rifle is a beauty. Had it out to the range and everybody was coming up asking about it.

The specs on this rifle are super TIGHT. there is no slop anywhere. I put 600 rounds Lake City 55g 5.56 through it in under 3 hours just to start loosening it up. Didn't have any problems. No FTE or FTF.

The quality of this rifle is top notch. I own Colt, Armalite and a Bravo Compnay ARs and this Core 15 6408 I have no doubt will stand toe to toe with any of them.

I would suggest buying one before the Core 15 name grows in recognition and the prices on these rifles jump up.

They have a lifetime "No BS" warranty that if they stand by makes this an even better buy.

.... The rifle as mentioned above comes super dry out the case. Oil it up really really good before you head out for fun.

I spent countless hours and about 3 weeks reading every review I could find on 3 different rifles and decided to go with the Core. Very happy I did.

Phenomenal rifle! Definitely a Mid-grade rifle built to a high-quality product. I was going to buy a cheap AR (again) But I decided to go quality and shell out an extra 300 dollars, and man, what a difference! Took this to the range yesterday, 6 shots to sight it in at 50 yards, 1 click down, four to the left and I was dead on. Then proceeded to fire 300 more rounds through it, at a quick pace because I wanted to see if the handguard could dissipate heat reliably, and it does. I didn't experience any discomfort with 90 rds in 5 min. High quality materials, superd fit and finish, definitely a world class rifle. Worth every penny, in fact I'd gladly pay and extra 300 to get the rifle.

This is my 4rth purchase from Buds and was a great experiance as usual! This gun is AWESOME! It is very good quality, zero slop between the upper and lower, smooth action, great trigger, all around awesome weapon. I havent had the chance to take it to the range yet but Im sure it will be fun. I did a ton of research on these b4 I bought it and they are known for eating any kind of ammo u feed it and the guys at Core15 are top notch. They were happy to answer all my questions. BTW the barrel is made from 4150 CMV not 4140, it also comes with a hard case.If ur on the fence about buying a Core15 go ahead and pick one up, u wont regret it.
