    Has any one ever heard of these rifles...
    Core 15 Scout M4
    BCA AR-15
    I was watching a video (recommended) on the BCA AR-15 which he bought for $450, nice looking and shot pretty well, when I went to save it I hit the delete button by mistake
    He also said something about the Core 15 Scout M4 he got for $600, but never showed it

    $450 for a AR, but is it worth it

    Several members on here have BCA uppers, I have 7.62x39 BCA upper.

    The 'rona has cut down on my range time and I have not shot my BCA upper yet.

    BCA (Bear Creek Arsenal) has had some challenges with accuracy with some of their barrels for some time. I understand that has improved a lot recently, but I cannot testify to that personally. I have a BCA upper that runs great, I have no complaints. Their prices are pretty good too.

    When you are getting to rifles in the sub 400 ish bucks range you are never going to get a great barrel.. or one that has good hardness treating on it.

    BUT most people dont shoot enough for it to be an issue... AND some of these rifles seem to be properly configured as a defensive rifle out of the box.

    So when it comes to inexpensive ARs for folks ona budget..I always tell people "dont let the perfect, be the enemy of the servicable"

    It depends on your budget, expected shooting volume, accuracy expectations, tolerance for shipping things back to the OEM, and other similarly priced options.

    I have a BCA .350 Legend upper. Had to send it back once. Accuracy is average, barrel material is ok, but not nitrided. It's fine for low-volume shooting/hunting, and I am satisfied with it for that role (and the low price I paid).

    Depending on how fast you're looking to buy and your budget, try to hold out for a 16" nitrided barrel, m-lok handguard, and a mid-length gas system.

    A nitrided barrel will give you longer life vs. Parkerized. It really depends on how many rounds you anticipate shooting and if you have the extra cash to spend on the nitride barrel.

    If you're ready to pull the trigger and buy, do it. Having an AR is better than not having one. A barrel can be swapped later down the road if need be.

    I'm not planning on buying a AR right now, I just noticed the video and saw two AR's I never heard of
    May wait until after November to see if I will get one, if the commies win I may just stick with the BA rifle
