I have had my Core15 Ar for about six months now and have put around 2K rounds through it. I have had absolutley zero issues with it. I have shot the cheap wolf ammo and steel ammo as well....not one jam or missfire. This is my 4th AR and so far my favorite. It is very very well made. By the way my others i have owned

Green Air gun Trigger Machine gun Line

were RockRiver, Stag and 2 DPMS's.

WHEW. (huge sigh of relief) I love all that I have read about the rifle, which is why I decided to buy one. I have only owned a Bushmaster before, so I am no expert. So far I know it has made it to my local UPS HUB.... be delivered on Monday, so I am pretty excited. Already picked up 400 rounds of ammo and 5 extra PMAGS, forward grip, 2pt. sling........ So yea, even at 40 I am like a little kid at Christmas...

Thanks for your input.
