    So I just got this and thought others may be interested. When I first pulled it out thought it had a thin film of lubrication, no, no lubrication just really slick. The rest are some pictures so you can make your own opinion.

    Staking just barely weak. The angle makes it hard to be sure, can you give a top view?

    Otherwise looks nice and does have the M16 carrier. Got more specs?

    Just ordered a core15 bcg. Every where is out and not much to choose from out there. Anyone tried one of these?

    I got a Core 15 M16 BCG it has no markings on it ( like Hp MPi ) It looks like they don't test fire them. The gas ring caused crazy things to happen. So they took it back and sent me a new one. The new one caused FTF so I got my money back and got a AO Precision Phosphate.
    Hopefully you will have better luck

    Are those a little better? I want to disassemble it but think I need a couple YouTube how to's first.

    did it come with a 1 piece gas ring ? a buddy used one and caused a disaster with his bcg , went back to the 3 piece gas rings and no issues :confused:

    Yes it had 3 ring gas system. I think the 1st one had the rings too loose causing extra friction even throw it is Crome lined.

    Stking is weaksauce. Mark your bolts and check to make it doesnt walk on you. If you have cycling issues that be the first thing you should check.

    Am I confused here, there is a trace of carbon on the tip of the firing pin but no trace on the bolt. Perhaps it was test fired and superficially cleaned? Anyway, no HP MP markings on the bolt... $200...

    I'd ask them if they test fire, hard to tell if they cleaned the bolt.

    It is very cleanly finished. Hope it works out well.

    Will do, the finish is very slick, almost feels like it is lubricated. Kinda weird, you can see that it was made in a 3D lathe, the cuts are visible to the naked eye but you can't really feel them.

    Well the staking looks 100% better but the caliber, well... :D Did they replace a 5.56 with a 5.45x39 Soviet bolt? :eek:

    BRO is 0-3 with BCGs on this forum! :eek:

    I only see one solution to this. Buy a new AR chambered in that caliber. :D

    It's the only viable solution. :D

    Ammo is CHEAP, or at least it was. :rolleyes: corrosive though.

    Lol, no, I bought it from AIM. I'm sure they'll take it back, I guarantee there is a couple people looking for one.
