    Took a chance on a new core 15t boy am I sorry!! upon opening box I noticed a few problems. Let me start by saying this a brand new unopened gun, I posted pics you will see problems barrel m4 feed ramps do not line up with receiver, rail support is improperly installed and top of rail is off to the right. Spoke to customer service sending brand new unfired gun directly back to there facility in Florida. Buyer Beware!!!

    Core

    I paid 800.00 , I have 2 other ar15s S&W MP15T an a BCM, I bought this because it was cheap. I will stick to my old adage The agony of poor workmanship lasts longer than the value of low low price. I am sorry to say this gun should of never left like this.

    Agreed. It goes to the saying that you get what you pay for. But a weapons company depends on word of mouth for a lot of sales and putting out a rifle that comes out of the box messed up won't be around for long.

    Sorry to hear about your situation. Hope they make it right! If I was running a shop I would be embarrassed to send something out like that. I hope at the very least they send some goodies to put a bandaid on your troubles.

    That sucks! I've heard if them but weary of new comers. My LGS is pushing these with a lifetime warranty. At least they will fix their problems.

    I bought one of their BCG when everything was out of stock last December and I was not impressed with it . However its still functioning flawless in my buddies rifle so I cannot complain much . The staking was mediocre the finish was not fabulous , The bolt looked good but it was not stamped with anything so who knows what he really got

    Another problem is the gun shop that sold it. They should have done a check of the weapon when they received it. Shame on them.

    I always stick to brands known for the quality because of the many problems I have heard about from new startup companies. Sorry to hear of you problems and hope they make it right for you.

    core 15

    Added a new gun today I have 4 ars now, a new Daniel Defense model no.7 .223 1299.00 Cant beat the deal sweet gun though my S&W 15t fit and finish is very close. Its hard to beat a Daniel Defense for how much you get for your dollar save your money and get a Daniels. By the way when I get the core 15t back I am gonna put it thru its paces and beat it well see how it lasts.

    I own a Core-15, haven't had a problem with it. Absolutely flawless and perfectly happy with it. They've been developing a good rep for themselves with good quality and an awesome warrantee. Could've been that one bad statistic everyone puts out once in a while.

    Same experience I've had with my Core 15 300 BLK SBR upper, I recommend them all the time & wouldn't hesitate to get another.
