Core 15 MOE

  1. Just purchased a Core 15 MOE from Buds Gun Shop. Should be here next week. After about 2 weeks of research, this is what I decided on. After balancing cost vs. value vs. quality, I think the core 15 will fit my needs.

    I don't have any experience with Core15 products, but that looks like a fine carbine, congrats!

    Post some pics when it arrives
     

  3. Judging by the :cricket:cricket: I guess nobody has any experience with the Core 15. Hopefully the dice don't roll a snake eyes.....

    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

    A buddy of mine has one he got a few months back. He has beat on it pretty good and it has yet to let him down. I think you will be happy with it.
     
  6. 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.
