AR-15 Rifle .223 / 5.56 NATO Caliber Semi Auto Flat Top Rifle W / M4  Barrel, 30 Round Mag and Hard Case by Bear Creek Arsenal
Chambered for .223 Wylde which accommodates Std .223 Remington as well as 5.56 NATO rounds.
Beautiful Smooth Parkerized Finish. 1 in 9 twist rate on barrel is highly accurate with a variety of bullet weights.

This is bar none the best AR-15 Rifle Value in the U.S. today.

We have torture tested these rifles and I would put them up against anything being sold for reliability...

In fact we are so confident in these rifles that we offer a full one year repair or replace bumper to bumper warranty directly from Classic Firearm on every rifle sold. 

Now don't get me wrong... There is nothing fancy here... Just a basic M4 AR-15 Carbine... But if you want a great entry level AR, at a really great price....

Give this Bear Creek Arsenal  AR-15 a try. Ships complete with a Carbine Length AR-15 Hard case and 1-30 round magazine.... Standard M4- Flat Top Rifle....

Note : Rifle comes to us as a Flat Top and is sold as such..., 
They ship with one 30 round mag in a hard shell case.

Some photo's show rifle with Rear Sight / Carry Handle, Halographic Electro Sight, or Barska 3x9x40 Scope Installed. ....
These are optional and do not come with this rifle. They are shown here for demonstrative purposes only, but must be purchased seperately...

Scopes, Extra Mags, Drum Mags, etc... may also be purchased with the rifle..... Note -

The scope you see in the photo's on the rifle is a Barska 3x9x40 Colorado series... This particular scope comes with rings and mounts up to this AR-15 right out of the box.... The rings it comes with are low profile so it makes for a very low profile scope package.... If you like for your scope to ride higher on the rifle just replace these factory rings with any medium or high ring set. Also, many people ask, do you not see the front sight through the scope??? The answer is no.. You do not... I don't know why, it is right there in front of the lens... but it does not show up though the scope... You have an unobstructed clear as a bell view downrange as far as the eye can see..... It must be magic... Note - We have tested these extensively and they work great, however, for some reason these rifles do not seem to like the Thermold brand mags... We recommend the Tapco, or C-Products mags..... Our Korean Military 100 round drum mags work great too.

The barrels on these are made from 4140 cold rolled steel and are rated at a barrel life of approximately 150,000 rounds. They are very top end. 

They are not chrome lined as most AR-'s are not. Chrome lining on modern rifles is typically used where there is a high probability of corrosive ammo being used such as AK type rifles chambered for foreign calibers... 

Since chrome lining may slightly affect accuracy, and since most AR-15 rifles are designed with accuracy as a benchmark,
and since virtually all .223 / 5.56 NATO is non corrosive...most AR manufacturers do not chrome line barrels.

The rifle is nice out of the box. I dressed it up with some Magpul. Runs real nice and has shot out everything I have fed it. IE: Wolf, Tula, Federal, Independence, PMC. Would recommend it to anyone looking to get into the market. I have another video of me shooting it if you check out my channel.

Very happy with the rifle and the order
Review by Thomas on 6/25/14
Quality
After 200 or so rounds of steel cased .223 junk (tulammo, Monarch) with no jams, misfires etc. I posted a short video of a full mag dump (30) at a 10" X 14" steel plate @ 60 yds. with a cheap centerpoint red dot. I have no complaints as of yet. This rifle shoots well, arrived on time, (thank you classic firearms), and I will post another video later after 800-1000 rounds. I will raise my rating to 5 after putting more rounds downrange with no hiccups.

A great rifle for the money.
Review by Mitch on 5/14/14
Quality
Overall, this is a great rifle for the money. There are a lot of negative comments on forums about these rifles from people who don't even own one. Look at all the reviews on here and you will see that very few people are unhappy with these. I bought 2 of them and have different plans for each of them. At this price, you can afford to customize it to your needs without ending up with $2,000 invested int it.

Excellent AR, Excellent Price
Review by Robert on 5/4/14
Quality
Finally time to review. First off, I got it before the shipping got too bad--still a couple of weeks, but not the 6-8 it is at the moment (not really CF's fault). That's bad by Classic's high standards, but you cannot do anything about Supply and Demand: you get what you get when you delay your ordering, and they warned you in advance. The case was nice and big: plenty of room for the 5 extra mags I got along w/ the AR. Rifle was clean and nice--am so used to buying older rifles filled w/ cosmoline that I forgot what it was like to buy something new. NATO and .223 work very well. The only thing I had problems with was the really low grain .223. I had bought some Rem 45-grn .223 when I first got this rifle (did not notice the 45 until after) and it did not have the oomph to blast the bolt back all the way and cycle the next round. I told my buddy about this and he said he had never even heard of a 45-grn round of .223 before. Lesson learned. Tried regular 55-grn and everything worked as it should. Overall I am extremely happy for what I paid and got, cannot wait until I get red-dot or something similar on it and really get to go to town. Thanks once again, Classic!

This is an excellent AR-15, cost effective, excellent build quality, and great performance.

In this video we fired Bear .223 steel cased (a Russian ammo), American Eagle Federal .556 brass case, and BCL .223 once fired brass reloads. All ammunition typed fired very smoothly through this beautiful weapon.

Review by Michael on 9/4/14

Ordered rifle on 8/22/14 and received it on 8/28/14. Mounted a UTG scope on the rifle and had it sighted in that afternoon. Very little recoil and no problems found. Waiting for cooler days to go fire some more rounds.
Excellent Shooter
Review by John on 9/2/14
Quality
Excellent shooter with iron sights only (I purchased the UTG carry handle to go with).

Also, this thing LOVES Thermold mags. I had read somewhere on here that this weapon did not care for them. Thermold is the ONLY magazine I use on my AR-15 platforms. There is a catch...read on...

Note: NOT all Thermold magazines the same. Look for D&D Inc., Wilson N.C. USA on the magazine to get the good ones. Thermold was sold back in the day and the new owners changed the formula regarding the plastics. I've heard terrible things since the sale.

Note2: I've NEVER had any issues with thousands of rounds run thru the many magazines that I own. Never a FTF. Never a jam.

***ONLY BUY D&D Inc., Wilson N.C. USA*** This is located on the lower "port" side of the magazine.

Review by George on 8/21/14

Not a bad gun for the money, except mine had a bad BCG. It would jam every other round. Tried 4 different brands of ammo, 4 different brands of mags. Then changed the BCG with an Armalite from my safe and now it works great. Thought they were going to warranty it or something, but it's been weeks since I've heard from them. So I sold it. I bought a kit after I sold it and the BCG in it was good, so I just got a bad BCG. It happens. But was not pleased with the lack of customer service

Hi George - Sorry to hear about the issue with your rifle. Bear Creek actually is one of the best at getting back to it's customers regarding any issues and thus ZI'm surprised to hear of your case where they did not. Please do email us at sales@classicfirearms.com if you would like for us to have them correct the issue for you. We are more than happy to help and see that you are well taken care of.. Thanks and God bless...

If you didn't get this one when it was On Sale forever for $499 you frickin' blew it!. I got mine for $474 with a coupon code for sending in some photos of other purchases to CF. This baby is tight. My photos of this sweetheart are posted towards the back of the line "Customer Submitted Photos" titled as "Flynorm". Are you going to cry because it didn't have a chrome lined barrel? Go ahead and whine. Either way you might need this one to protect the home land and your family some day real soon.

Outstanding AR 15. FFL was impressed, said it was a super deal and wanted to get one for himself.
Later at the range fired 80 rounds without any issues. Love this rifle.

I bought this recently. After two months it still shoots straight with no ftf or FTE. This was my first purchase from classic and was impressed with their customer service. It was an understandably long wait so I won't let that hurt this review. Don't let purists tell you anything bad about the quality of the rifle. The bolt carrier is nice quality and I don't plan on replacing it anytime soon. The only thing that is negative of the rifle is the stock. Overall I am pleased with my purchase.

bought one of these BCA AR's and am definitely impressed with quality and function. ran 500 rds of brass and steel case ammo, not a single glitch. once sighted in was getting 2'' 5rd groups at 100 yds with quality ammo. also big +10 to classic arms, had excellent communication from start to finish. even sent email to let me know product had arrived at my local dealer...very impressive! shipping was also super fast, 3 days and had it in my possession. can't say enough good about these guys, best first time customer service i have ever experienced...will be back for sure.

Review by DWIGHT on 6/18/14

Just got my Bear Creek AR today. I was sceptical but thought for 500 bucks how bad could it be. Well needless to say my happiness started with the case it came in. Basic plastic but a very nice one. Then the rifle came out. I have owned Colt and Bushmasters and currently have a SIG 516. Although this is no SIG it looks just as good as the Colt or Bushmaster. Very tight, clean, smooth and crisp. No blemishes or scratches. Very very good quality and workmanship on this rifle. I will say there is no better deal out there for an M4 hands down. I am buying another. My advice BUY BUY BUY. Thanks Classic, you have made me a very very happy customer again. Love this rifle. Shipping only took about a week.
excellent rifle and good price.

I looked for weeks did all the comparisons and and for the money you will not find a better deal for a quality ar,I am very pleased and glad I bought this one,check out all the specs and you see what I am talking about,all my buddys said I would have to spend at least $1200 on one,glad I didnt listen now they can't believe I got this as good as they have,the only thing you'll give up is a chromed lined barrel,but if your lazy and don't clean your barrel once in awhile spend another $600 and get the chrome,and with a liftime warranty you can't go wrong.

Pleasantly SUPRISED
Review by gunNUT99 on 5/8/14
Quality
Ok heres the deal...I read all the reviews on Classic about this rifle prior to purchase. I also read the reviews on AR15.com and Carbine.com, etc about this rifle. This is not a high dollar Noveske, BCM, Barnes, etc AR. However if you are just getting into AR's or you are a doomsday prep guy or if your buddies all have AR's and you want to just go out and shoot with them from time to time. This is the AR for you. I was lucky enough to get one at the $499 price which to my FFL cost. $520 SMOKING DEAL. Right after i got it i put all Magpul stuff on it and sent about 150 rounds of steel case, 5.56, .223, blah blah blah. ZERO JAMS, MALFUNCTIONS, ETC and also maintained a tight group with only iron sights. I was skeptical about this at first and now I wish i would have bought 2 more at the $500 price. dont let the "high dollar AR reviews" scare you away from this rifle. even at the $569 price you are getting a solid AR for the price. take that extra money you saved and make it your own with sights, furniture, ammo, mags WHATEVER. great product, great price, very happy customer. enough said!!!!!!
accuracy is great
Review by Donny on 5/7/14

Put on scope then bored sighte3d it in, went to the range and started at 25 yards mage a few adjustment and fired 60 rounds. No jams and could cover the hole with a silver dollar at 100 yards. Think that I will have a lot of fun with this gun.
Awesome AR with quality of other high end models.

Classic was excellent to me with the purchase. You can't go wrong with them or this AR15, I have spent more for the same rifle with just a different name on it. Great build quality, wouldn't be scared to buy another.
Fun and accurate
Review by Deadly in OKC on 5/2/14
Quality
Took this AR-15 to the range and shot Federal 5.56X45 NATO rounds. With a small tactical scope, it took 3 rounds to achieve zero. The center mass had one big hole in the very middle of the target after 60 rounds, so I just had to put 30 more rounds into that same area. I have a couple of .223 Saigas that are fun to shoot, but not nearly as accurate as this Bear Creek Arsenal AR-15. This is now my "go-to" rifle when accuracy is a must, especially when keeping coyotes away from the livestock. Thanks again, Classic Firearms and thanks Bear Creek Arsenal for a fine AR-15 at a very , very reasonable price!
Very well made and shoots great.

Review by TheBeef on 4/22/14

This rifle does not look like a $500 rifle could look. In fact, it compares favorably to my SW M&P model. The phosphate is uniform everywhere, no tool marks on the exterior or interior of the receivers. The bolt carrier is definitely M16 style. Everything came wellpackaged in the hard case, inners were properly lubed; barrel needed cleaning. Appearance is awesome. The trigger is spongy, but consistent at around 4 pounds. Will see how this shoots next weekend and update the review.

This is my SECOND review, because our family members have purchased a total of 5 of these guns and I am pretty sure that we will be getting at LEAST one more, very soon!

One important detail that I see missing in the Classic Firearms description of this rifle is the fact that it has the M-16 style bolt carrier! THAT is a bonus too!

Don't even think twice, fellas, grab one of these great rifles ASAP!

Thanks again, Bear Creek & Classic Firearms!

This is by far the best deal out there today. The fit and finish on this weapon is superb. Everything fits together nicely without any slop. I am very impressed with this and I wish I'd have gotten two. It shoots like a dream as well,very accurate. Even with the price increase this is still a hell of a deal. I could not be happier. Thanks Classic Firearms,and thanks Bear Creek Arsenal. You have really outdone yourselves this time.
Good gun for the price.
Review by quinton on 4/16/14
Quality
Shipping was about a week. This rifle has a nice finish, great size versatility and fun to shoot. Trigger pull is smooth. The core of the rifle is flawless. Action is smooth, fitting is tight with no gaps or rattling. Very accurate and with the factory sights I easily shot half dollar groups at about 100 yards after initial sight in. The case is nice and sturdy.

There are a few negatives in my opinion. The tapco stock is cheap and leaves a little to be desired. The tapco mags do not seat tightly into the magwell and have to be pushed up and forward for the ammo to feed properly. If not, the round coming out of the mag catches on the bottom of the feed ramp. I picked up a MagPul 30rd mag and have had no misfeeds in the subsequent 200 rds through it since. The lower on mine scratched very easily.

These few things aside I'm very happy with this purchase and have really enjoyed it. This is an exceptional deal. I have and will reccomend it anyone looking for an affordable and reliable AR-15.
Great rifle for the price

I couldn't be happier about this purchase. Picked it up from the FFL and I am very impressed. I finally had the chance to shoot it today and I am very happy. Nice group at 100 yards. I recommend this AR for anyone.
Hot Deal
Review by The Beef on 4/13/14
Quality
Just got word that Classic is shipping my newest AR. Thanks Rick. Thanks Amber. Your business model should be emulated everywhere.

I made this purchase based on the strength of the Classic writeup, and the significant number of positive customer reviews. I fully expect to be blown away by the quality of fit and finish, tight upper/lower assembly, and quality of the bore and bolt carrier. BUIS is on the way also for this flattop. Will update this review after delivery and about 500 rounds sent downrange.

Plan to shoot various factory loads, Federal Lake City green tip, and 4 different handload recipes. Looking forward to a noisy afternoon and some shredded targets and exploded milk cartons.

Thanks Classic for a great deal and your truly exceptional customer service.
The best AR, money can buy.

I got this gun from the FFL about a month ago, and tested it out to the range a few weeks later. After putting it through 150 rounds of 5.56, this gun definitely exceeded my expectations. It was accurate, reliable, and very fun to shoot. I absolutely love this rifle, and definitely the best value you can get for a semi-automatic rifle for the money.

Classic Firearms definitely did a great job getting this product shipped out in a week. I will definitely purchase from them again.

Got the gun at the sale price and couldn't be happier. Smooth bolt, nice finish, no issues. I don't think I could build one for this price. This will be the gun I let my kids shoot at the range. Next up will be an ak...Thanks Classic

Review by MICHAEL on 4/9/14

First purchase from you guys and everything went as smooth as could be.
Great rifle for the money, good fit at upper and lower, rifle was clean, and properly lubricated right out of the box. Took it to the range the same day, broke it in and had no problems, this rifle shoots very well. The barrel is stamped .223 wylde as in the description (but pictured barrel stamped 5.56 nato) it shoots both with the wylde chamber, so I am satisfied it is as described. You just can't beat this deal. If you're thinking one over, just get it. Has a UTG pro butt stock, properly staked gas key, the tapco mag fits and works great, my other brand mags fit well also, even tried the brand they mentioned doesn't do well, and it works fine. The finish is good. I will shop with you guys again. Thanks for having a good rifle at such a great price !!!

Received this past Sat from ffl. Shipping took longer than I liked, but that was my fault for not pulling the trigger on this awesome deal sooner..Fit and finish are perfect, and much better than the Bushmaster A2 I used to own. Took it to the range to try it out and was blown away by the accuracy of this rifle. No malfunctions on the rifles part. I am so glad I grabbed one of the last at $499.00. Do not hesitate to purchase this rifle!!

This rifle is very good. The price is good. Shot as well, if not better than my friend's AR that was bought for $300 more than this one. Put around 500 Rd through her, great groups.

Purchased rifle about a month ago, had a little delay in shipping due to inclement weather on sellers end but it arrived within a couple of weeks. Took it to a Patrol Rifle Operators course through neighboring police department, put about 600 rounds through it during the course. Using a flip up rear sight I had a 2 click adjustment off combat zero and shot the highest overall in the class. Had zero issues with the weapon and now use it as my duty rifle. Best buy for the money!
An Offer I Can't Refuse
Review by Deadly in OKC on 3/27/14
Quality
I was impressed with the craftsmanship of this AR-15 from Bear Creek Arsenal. When I told my FFL that is was a $500 Ar-15, his response was, "Looks like you have done extremely well with this purchase price and quality of this AR-15." Told him it was from Classic Firearms and, at that time, they still had some for that same price. Would not be surprised if he ordered one for himself. Taking it to the range at the end of March. Thanks again, Classic!
BearCreek Centerfire Rifle
Review by Cheif Keef on 3/27/14

Bear Creek Arsenal, Centerfire Rifle.
 
ClassicFirearms is outstanding. And from what I can tell so is BearCreek. Shipping at the time was super fast. Payment and processing was super easy. My FFL was impressed with the Rifle as was my Army buddie. Would order more if I had the flow.
 
 
Pros;
 
--All received as advertised
--Brand new Centerfire Rifle for under $600. After shipping was $520. After FFL fee $560
--The fit and finish is Perfect throughout the platform, the BCG looks very reliable
--The Grip on the lower is not like traditional grips. I have large hands and most do not fit and I replace them with Magpul MOE. This one fit my hand perfectly before replacement
--Comes with, Sling attachments, Bayonet mount and a fixed front sight. All outstanding for a new  Rifle
--Hard case is nice
 
 
Cons;
--Cannot say so far, looks good. Will take it to the range and follow up with any issues if any arise.
 
 
Other;
 
--Came super super greasy, not sure what was slathered all over it. Had to clean it dry then apply CLP function tested smooth after this. (wear gloves)
--Classic doesn't offer an alternative to the 30rnd Mag. It was shipped to my FFL in CO and my FFL kept it. Luckily I have plenty of Magpul mags.
--The Buttstock kit seems to be made of Billet. The spec states "commercial spec". Came with Tapco collapsable stock
Great price, wife loves it!

I purchased this AR after much consideration with the fact that it is made by the former MMC. After all that I had read on the web about the company I was a little apprehensive. I purchased the gun on Saturday and it arrived at my FFL on Thursday. When I got there to pick it up I dug into it and gave it a scrutinizing once over. I was impressed with the quality of the finish and the materials used. I took it out to the range on Sunday and ran 300 rounds through it. I did not have a single problem with the thing and I really like the trigger pull. The gun is very accurate. I am happy with my purchase. I would buy it again. In the end I think that is what matters. I am glad I went with the reviews of the others that purchased this gun. Thank you Classic and Bear Creek Arsenal for such an amazing deal.

I picked mine up at my FFL on friday. it looked great in the case I mounted a 3-9x 40 bushnell on it and took it out saturday afternoon. The rifle functioned flawlessly. I only ran about 50 rounds thru it but I was still impressed by it. I would buy another if the funds permitted. Even with an upcoming cost increase at 550-600.00 this is still well worth the money. The only thing i will change is the optics. I couldn't find what i wanted over the weekend and had the scope from a savage axis that I acquired last week also. So I slapped it on with a set of weaver high mount rings. Shooting from a sitting position, the gun rested on an archery target I was over lapping bullet holes at 50yd I know it perfrom well when I have time to set up some longer ranges. Thank you Classic Firearms and thank you Bear Creek Arsenal.

Quality Rifle
Review by Greg on 3/14/14
Quality
For anyone wondering about the accuracy of the gun, I tested it from 100, 150, 200, 250, 300 yards. I used a 3x9 scope with Burris rings with pos-align inserts for long distance shooting. At 100 yards I shot sub MOA. I zeroed scope at 150 yards with it still shooting 1 MOA. By the time I was at 300 yards I was shooting one MOA on gallon milk jugs on my first shot once I dialed in my scope for that yardage. This gun has the accuracy, so the shooter will make or break how well this gun performs with accuracy. I was shooting American Eagle .223 55 grain FMJ, so other ammo might not work as well, I am not sure. So far gun has not had any issues I am aware, it has performed flawlessly. I might look at ordering another one if I can make it work. Overall a great gun at a great introductory price.

I received the AR cleaned it and put a UTG A2 style rear sight on the rifle, took it to the range put five rounds through it before making any sight adjustments from mechanical zero. Four of the five shot went into the X and 10 rings. I thought that was very good for a rifle right out of the box.

First and foremost, Classic Firearms has absolutely the best customer service!! Thank you so much for getting the rifle to my FFL. I've owned AR's in the past and the fit and finish of this product is terrific. I was able to find extended rails and a great rear sight plus the CAA saddle for the buttstock to give it the same look as a $1500 (before add on) rifle I had before. The rifle was disassembled and cleaned. I plan to take it to the range this upcoming weekend to give a shooting/functionality review.
Fantastic Entry Level AR !!

Wow! Have to give 5 stars. Observed hand guard material will yield very slightly under a super heavy hand. Observation only, not how gripped when shooting. Don't anticipate any problem.

I can't believe how nice this rifle is. I have 3 other brand name AR's and this fit's right in with all of them. This is a great rifle, I wish they would make an A2 version of this AR. I like having iron sights. Flat tops cost more money in the end because you have to supply sights, and they always need adjusted. I love iron sights and I can't believe people buy guns with no sights, but when they are this good and this inexpensive, I'll make an exception.

Even the fit and finish is perfect, it is the best deal in M-4's on he market for sure. You literally can't build one this cheap. Far better quality that A DPMS rifle.
My first...
Review by Pistol_Preacher on 2/26/14
Quality
So take this for what it's worth...this is my first AR and I haven't shot it yet. First, I had the misfortune of ordering at the end of the years biggest snow storm. It took Classic a week to send it. However, communication was excellent. Once they sent it shipping was very fast and inexpensive.

I held a lot of higher end AR's and mid grade AR's before ordering. This one looks as good as anything else I've held for 2-3x's the price.

When the gunsmith I transferred this through saw it he was blown away. He said nothing out there could touch the value. He started off with a carreer in the Marines and finished as a law enforcement officer. Now he builds AR's as a gunsmith in retirement. He knows his stuff. Every guy that sees this wants to order one.

I'll update if I have any issues with the breaking in process.

Take the leap. You won't be disappointed.

I got one of the last rifles when they were still MMC(same gun).I got it in like 4 days, I bought extra mags and a carry handle with sight. ran 200rds. of Federal American Eagle through it as fast as I could, ate em all with no problem. For a $500 gun with a case and great service I am very happy. The only negative point was for the finish, I think it could be better, but that does not effect the performance of the weapon. If I had more cash I would buy 5 more! Very Happy THANK-YOU.

    AR-15 Rifle .223 / 5.56 NATO Caliber Semi Auto Flat Top Rifle W / M4  Barrel, 30 Round Mag and Hard Case by Bear Creek Arsenal
    Chambered for .223 Wylde which accommodates Std .223 Remington as well as 5.56 NATO rounds.
    Beautiful Smooth Parkerized Finish. 1 in 9 twist rate on barrel is highly accurate with a variety of bullet weights.

    This is bar none the best AR-15 Rifle Value in the U.S. today.

    We have torture tested these rifles and I would put them up against anything being sold for reliability...

    In fact we are so confident in these rifles that we offer a full one year repair or replace bumper to bumper warranty directly from Classic Firearm on every rifle sold. 

    Now don't get me wrong... There is nothing fancy here... Just a basic M4 AR-15 Carbine... But if you want a great entry level AR, at a really great price....

    Give this Bear Creek Arsenal  AR-15 a try. Ships complete with a Carbine Length AR-15 Hard case and 1-30 round magazine.... Standard M4- Flat Top Rifle....

    Note : Rifle comes to us as a Flat Top and is sold as such..., 
    They ship with one 30 round mag in a hard shell case.

    Some photo's show rifle with Rear Sight / Carry Handle, Halographic Electro Sight, or Barska 3x9x40 Scope Installed. ....
    These are optional and do not come with this rifle. They are shown here for demonstrative purposes only, but must be purchased seperately...

    Scopes, Extra Mags, Drum Mags, etc... may also be purchased with the rifle..... Note -

    The scope you see in the photo's on the rifle is a Barska 3x9x40 Colorado series... This particular scope comes with rings and mounts up to this AR-15 right out of the box.... The rings it comes with are low profile so it makes for a very low profile scope package.... If you like for your scope to ride higher on the rifle just replace these factory rings with any medium or high ring set. Also, many people ask, do you not see the front sight through the scope??? The answer is no.. You do not... I don't know why, it is right there in front of the lens... but it does not show up though the scope... You have an unobstructed clear as a bell view downrange as far as the eye can see..... It must be magic... Note - We have tested these extensively and they work great, however, for some reason these rifles do not seem to like the Thermold brand mags... We recommend the Tapco, or C-Products mags..... Our Korean Military 100 round drum mags work great too.

    The barrels on these are made from 4140 cold rolled steel and are rated at a barrel life of approximately 150,000 rounds. They are very top end. 

    They are not chrome lined as most AR-'s are not. Chrome lining on modern rifles is typically used where there is a high probability of corrosive ammo being used such as AK type rifles chambered for foreign calibers... 

    Since chrome lining may slightly affect accuracy, and since most AR-15 rifles are designed with accuracy as a benchmark,
    and since virtually all .223 / 5.56 NATO is non corrosive...most AR manufacturers do not chrome line barrels.

    After 200 or so rounds of steel cased .223 junk (tulammo, Monarch) with no jams, misfires etc. I posted a short video of a full mag dump (30) at a 10" X 14" steel plate @ 60 yds. with a cheap centerpoint red dot. I have no complaints as of yet. This rifle shoots well, arrived on time, (thank you classic firearms), and I will post another video later after 800-1000 rounds. I will raise my rating to 5 after putting more rounds downrange with no hiccups.

    A great rifle for the money.
    Review by Mitch on 5/14/14
    Quality
    Overall, this is a great rifle for the money. There are a lot of negative comments on forums about these rifles from people who don't even own one. Look at all the reviews on here and you will see that very few people are unhappy with these. I bought 2 of them and have different plans for each of them. At this price, you can afford to customize it to your needs without ending up with $2,000 invested int it.

    Excellent AR, Excellent Price
    Review by Robert on 5/4/14
    Quality
    Finally time to review. First off, I got it before the shipping got too bad--still a couple of weeks, but not the 6-8 it is at the moment (not really CF's fault). That's bad by Classic's high standards, but you cannot do anything about Supply and Demand: you get what you get when you delay your ordering, and they warned you in advance. The case was nice and big: plenty of room for the 5 extra mags I got along w/ the AR. Rifle was clean and nice--am so used to buying older rifles filled w/ cosmoline that I forgot what it was like to buy something new. NATO and .223 work very well. The only thing I had problems with was the really low grain .223. I had bought some Rem 45-grn .223 when I first got this rifle (did not notice the 45 until after) and it did not have the oomph to blast the bolt back all the way and cycle the next round. I told my buddy about this and he said he had never even heard of a 45-grn round of .223 before. Lesson learned. Tried regular 55-grn and everything worked as it should. Overall I am extremely happy for what I paid and got, cannot wait until I get red-dot or something similar on it and really get to go to town. Thanks once again, Classic!

    This is an excellent AR-15, cost effective, excellent build quality, and great performance.

    In this video we fired Bear .223 steel cased (a Russian ammo), American Eagle Federal .556 brass case, and BCL .223 once fired brass reloads. All ammunition typed fired very smoothly through this beautiful weapon.

At the range my local class 3 dealer and decided to throw the bca complete upper on his registered custom lower. And it ran flawlessly. Hope u enjoy the video..

    Ordered rifle on 8/22/14 and received it on 8/28/14. Mounted a UTG scope on the rifle and had it sighted in that afternoon. Very little recoil and no problems found. Waiting for cooler days to go fire some more rounds.
    Excellent Shooter

    Excellent shooter with iron sights only (I purchased the UTG carry handle to go with).

    Also, this thing LOVES Thermold mags. I had read somewhere on here that this weapon did not care for them. Thermold is the ONLY magazine I use on my AR-15 platforms. There is a catch...read on...

    Note: NOT all Thermold magazines the same. Look for D&D Inc., Wilson N.C. USA on the magazine to get the good ones. Thermold was sold back in the day and the new owners changed the formula regarding the plastics. I've heard terrible things since the sale.

    Note2: I've NEVER had any issues with thousands of rounds run thru the many magazines that I own. Never a FTF. Never a jam.

    ***ONLY BUY D&D Inc., Wilson N.C. USA*** This is located on the lower "port" side of the magazine.

    Not a bad gun for the money, except mine had a bad BCG. It would jam every other round. Tried 4 different brands of ammo, 4 different brands of mags. Then changed the BCG with an Armalite from my safe and now it works great. Thought they were going to warranty it or something, but it's been weeks since I've heard from them. So I sold it. I bought a kit after I sold it and the BCG in it was good, so I just got a bad BCG. It happens. But was not pleased with the lack of customer service

    Hi George - Sorry to hear about the issue with your rifle. Bear Creek actually is one of the best at getting back to it's customers regarding any issues and thus ZI'm surprised to hear of your case where they did not. Please do email us at sales@classicfirearms.com if you would like for us to have them correct the issue for you. We are more than happy to help and see that you are well taken care of.. Thanks and God bless...

    If you didn't get this one when it was On Sale forever for $499 you frickin' blew it!. I got mine for $474 with a coupon code for sending in some photos of other purchases to CF. This baby is tight. My photos of this sweetheart are posted towards the back of the line "Customer Submitted Photos" titled as "Flynorm". Are you going to cry because it didn't have a chrome lined barrel? Go ahead and whine. Either way you might need this one to protect the home land and your family some day real soon.

    I bought this recently. After two months it still shoots straight with no ftf or FTE. This was my first purchase from classic and was impressed with their customer service. It was an understandably long wait so I won't let that hurt this review. Don't let purists tell you anything bad about the quality of the rifle. The bolt carrier is nice quality and I don't plan on replacing it anytime soon. The only thing that is negative of the rifle is the stock. Overall I am pleased with my purchase.

    Just got my Bear Creek AR today. I was sceptical but thought for 500 bucks how bad could it be. Well needless to say my happiness started with the case it came in. Basic plastic but a very nice one. Then the rifle came out. I have owned Colt and Bushmasters and currently have a SIG 516. Although this is no SIG it looks just as good as the Colt or Bushmaster. Very tight, clean, smooth and crisp. No blemishes or scratches. Very very good quality and workmanship on this rifle. I will say there is no better deal out there for an M4 hands down. I am buying another. My advice BUY BUY BUY. Thanks Classic, you have made me a very very happy customer again. Love this rifle. Shipping only took about a week.
    excellent rifle and good price.

    Review by gunNUT99 on 5/8/14
    Quality
    Ok heres the deal...I read all the reviews on Classic about this rifle prior to purchase. I also read the reviews on AR15.com and Carbine.com, etc about this rifle. This is not a high dollar Noveske, BCM, Barnes, etc AR. However if you are just getting into AR's or you are a doomsday prep guy or if your buddies all have AR's and you want to just go out and shoot with them from time to time. This is the AR for you. I was lucky enough to get one at the $499 price which to my FFL cost. $520 SMOKING DEAL. Right after i got it i put all Magpul stuff on it and sent about 150 rounds of steel case, 5.56, .223, blah blah blah. ZERO JAMS, MALFUNCTIONS, ETC and also maintained a tight group with only iron sights. I was skeptical about this at first and now I wish i would have bought 2 more at the $500 price. dont let the "high dollar AR reviews" scare you away from this rifle. even at the $569 price you are getting a solid AR for the price. take that extra money you saved and make it your own with sights, furniture, ammo, mags WHATEVER. great product, great price, very happy customer. enough said!!!!!!

    Review by Deadly in OKC on 5/2/14
    Quality
    Took this AR-15 to the range and shot Federal 5.56X45 NATO rounds. With a small tactical scope, it took 3 rounds to achieve zero. The center mass had one big hole in the very middle of the target after 60 rounds, so I just had to put 30 more rounds into that same area. I have a couple of .223 Saigas that are fun to shoot, but not nearly as accurate as this Bear Creek Arsenal AR-15. This is now my "go-to" rifle when accuracy is a must, especially when keeping coyotes away from the livestock. Thanks again, Classic Firearms and thanks Bear Creek Arsenal for a fine AR-15 at a very , very reasonable price!
    Very well made and shoots great.

    This rifle does not look like a $500 rifle could look. In fact, it compares favorably to my SW M&P model. The phosphate is uniform everywhere, no tool marks on the exterior or interior of the receivers. The bolt carrier is definitely M16 style. Everything came wellpackaged in the hard case, inners were properly lubed; barrel needed cleaning. Appearance is awesome. The trigger is spongy, but consistent at around 4 pounds. Will see how this shoots next weekend and update the review.

    Review by quinton on 4/16/14
    Quality
    Shipping was about a week. This rifle has a nice finish, great size versatility and fun to shoot. Trigger pull is smooth. The core of the rifle is flawless. Action is smooth, fitting is tight with no gaps or rattling. Very accurate and with the factory sights I easily shot half dollar groups at about 100 yards after initial sight in. The case is nice and sturdy.

    There are a few negatives in my opinion. The tapco stock is cheap and leaves a little to be desired. The tapco mags do not seat tightly into the magwell and have to be pushed up and forward for the ammo to feed properly. If not, the round coming out of the mag catches on the bottom of the feed ramp. I picked up a MagPul 30rd mag and have had no misfeeds in the subsequent 200 rds through it since. The lower on mine scratched very easily.

    These few things aside I'm very happy with this purchase and have really enjoyed it. This is an exceptional deal. I have and will reccomend it anyone looking for an affordable and reliable AR-15.

    Just got word that Classic is shipping my newest AR. Thanks Rick. Thanks Amber. Your business model should be emulated everywhere.

    I made this purchase based on the strength of the Classic writeup, and the significant number of positive customer reviews. I fully expect to be blown away by the quality of fit and finish, tight upper/lower assembly, and quality of the bore and bolt carrier. BUIS is on the way also for this flattop. Will update this review after delivery and about 500 rounds sent downrange.

    Plan to shoot various factory loads, Federal Lake City green tip, and 4 different handload recipes. Looking forward to a noisy afternoon and some shredded targets and exploded milk cartons.

    Thanks Classic for a great deal and your truly exceptional customer service.

    First purchase from you guys and everything went as smooth as could be.
    Great rifle for the money, good fit at upper and lower, rifle was clean, and properly lubricated right out of the box. Took it to the range the same day, broke it in and had no problems, this rifle shoots very well. The barrel is stamped .223 wylde as in the description (but pictured barrel stamped 5.56 nato) it shoots both with the wylde chamber, so I am satisfied it is as described. You just can't beat this deal. If you're thinking one over, just get it. Has a UTG pro butt stock, properly staked gas key, the tapco mag fits and works great, my other brand mags fit well also, even tried the brand they mentioned doesn't do well, and it works fine. The finish is good. I will shop with you guys again. Thanks for having a good rifle at such a great price !!!

    I was impressed with the craftsmanship of this AR-15 from Bear Creek Arsenal. When I told my FFL that is was a $500 Ar-15, his response was, "Looks like you have done extremely well with this purchase price and quality of this AR-15." Told him it was from Classic Firearms and, at that time, they still had some for that same price. Would not be surprised if he ordered one for himself. Taking it to the range at the end of March.

    BearCreek Centerfire Rifle

    Bear Creek Arsenal, Centerfire Rifle.
     
    ClassicFirearms is outstanding. And from what I can tell so is BearCreek. Shipping at the time was super fast. Payment and processing was super easy. My FFL was impressed with the Rifle as was my Army buddie. Would order more if I had the flow.
     
     
    Pros;
     
    --All received as advertised
    --Brand new Centerfire Rifle for under $600. After shipping was $520. After FFL fee $560
    --The fit and finish is Perfect throughout the platform, the BCG looks very reliable
    --The Grip on the lower is not like traditional grips. I have large hands and most do not fit and I replace them with Magpul MOE. This one fit my hand perfectly before replacement
    --Comes with, Sling attachments, Bayonet mount and a fixed front sight. All outstanding for a new  Rifle
    --Hard case is nice
     
     
    Cons;
    --Cannot say so far, looks good. Will take it to the range and follow up with any issues if any arise.
     
     
    Other;
     
    --Came super super greasy, not sure what was slathered all over it. Had to clean it dry then apply CLP function tested smooth after this. (wear gloves)
    --Classic doesn't offer an alternative to the 30rnd Mag. It was shipped to my FFL in CO and my FFL kept it. Luckily I have plenty of Magpul mags.
    --The Buttstock kit seems to be made of Billet. The spec states "commercial spec". Came with Tapco collapsable stock
    Great price, wife loves it!

Thank you Classic Arms for such a fine product! I simply knew Classic would not let me down and they most certainly did not!!!!!
    AWESOME GUN!

    I picked up the rifle last Wednesday, and have inspected it well over since then. I am very impressed with the machining and fit of everything. I haven't had a chance to take it to the range yet, I'll update this when I can.

    I purchased this AR after much consideration with the fact that it is made by the former MMC. After all that I had read on the web about the company I was a little apprehensive. I purchased the gun on Saturday and it arrived at my FFL on Thursday. When I got there to pick it up I dug into it and gave it a scrutinizing once over. I was impressed with the quality of the finish and the materials used. I took it out to the range on Sunday and ran 300 rounds through it. I did not have a single problem with the thing and I really like the trigger pull. The gun is very accurate. I am happy with my purchase. I would buy it again. In the end I think that is what matters. I am glad I went with the reviews of the others that purchased this gun. Thank you Classic and Bear Creek Arsenal for such an amazing deal.

    I picked mine up at my FFL on friday. it looked great in the case I mounted a 3-9x 40 bushnell on it and took it out saturday afternoon. The rifle functioned flawlessly. I only ran about 50 rounds thru it but I was still impressed by it. I would buy another if the funds permitted. Even with an upcoming cost increase at 550-600.00 this is still well worth the money. The only thing i will change is the optics. I couldn't find what i wanted over the weekend and had the scope from a savage axis that I acquired last week also. So I slapped it on with a set of weaver high mount rings. Shooting from a sitting position, the gun rested on an archery target I was over lapping bullet holes at 50yd I know it perfrom well when I have time to set up some longer ranges. Thank you Classic Firearms and thank you Bear Creek Arsenal.

    It looks quality to me. Words will get around fast if it is good or not good when it comes to firearms. But I still can build one for about $50-100 less with polymer lower not aluminium lower I should say.

    For anyone wondering about the accuracy of the gun, I tested it from 100, 150, 200, 250, 300 yards. I used a 3x9 scope with Burris rings with pos-align inserts for long distance shooting. At 100 yards I shot sub MOA. I zeroed scope at 150 yards with it still shooting 1 MOA. By the time I was at 300 yards I was shooting one MOA on gallon milk jugs on my first shot once I dialed in my scope for that yardage. This gun has the accuracy, so the shooter will make or break how well this gun performs with accuracy. I was shooting American Eagle .223 55 grain FMJ, so other ammo might not work as well, I am not sure. So far gun has not had any issues I am aware, it has performed flawlessly. I might look at ordering another one if I can make it work. Overall a great gun at a great introductory price.

    I received the AR cleaned it and put a UTG A2 style rear sight on the rifle, took it to the range put five rounds through it before making any sight adjustments from mechanical zero. Four of the five shot went into the X and 10 rings. I thought that was very good for a rifle right out of the box.

    First and foremost, Classic Firearms has absolutely the best customer service!! Thank you so much for getting the rifle to my FFL. I've owned AR's in the past and the fit and finish of this product is terrific. I was able to find extended rails and a great rear sight plus the CAA saddle for the buttstock to give it the same look as a $1500 (before add on) rifle I had before. The rifle was disassembled and cleaned. I plan to take it to the range this upcoming weekend to give a shooting/functionality review.
    Fantastic Entry Level AR !!

    Wow! Have to give 5 stars. Observed hand guard material will yield very slightly under a super heavy hand. Observation only, not how gripped when shooting. Don't anticipate any problem. FFL commented rifle had a nice trigger pull. Amount of accurate detail in advertisement and service from Classic was 5+. Absolutely no regrets. Would purchase again. Can't wait for range day. Thank you for the deal.

    I can't believe how nice this rifle is. I have 3 other brand name AR's and this fit's right in with all of them. This is a great rifle, I wish they would make an A2 version of this AR. I like having iron sights. Flat tops cost more money in the end because you have to supply sights, and they always need adjusted. I love iron sights and I can't believe people buy guns with no sights, but when they are this good and this inexpensive, I'll make an exception.

    I purchased this AR-15 after much evaluation locally at some gun stores and online reviews and shopping. AND I AM so glad this is what I purchased, I checked out Many of the moderate priced weapons and none seemed as well built and they were priced $100 or more higher then the Bearcreek Arsenal Flat top. weapons in this price range were no where near this nice. " I can't wait to head out for some target practice." Bought plenty of Ammo too!!!
    Best deal around!

    I recently picked this gun up from my FFL and we disassembled it there on the counter. Everything fit tight, like we expected. The workmanship was phenomenal! There were no marks or anything, it was absolutely beautiful! This rifle does have the M16 bolt so we all know what that means! I will definitely order another in a couple months if it performs well. I hope to get it to the range this weekend. I will keep you all updated.

    I bought this rifle during the black friday sale and have now run over 500 rnds through it. It has not had one malfunction, it will shoot 1" groups with just about anything and the trigger is great. Even the fit and finish is perfect, it is the best deal in M-4's on he market for sure. You literally can't build one this cheap. Far better quality that A DPMS rifle.
    My first...
    Review by Pistol_Preacher on 2/26/14
    Quality
    So take this for what it's worth...this is my first AR and I haven't shot it yet. First, I had the misfortune of ordering at the end of the years biggest snow storm. It took Classic a week to send it. However, communication was excellent. Once they sent it shipping was very fast and inexpensive.

    I held a lot of higher end AR's and mid grade AR's before ordering. This one looks as good as anything else I've held for 2-3x's the price.

    When the gunsmith I transferred this through saw it he was blown away. He said nothing out there could touch the value. He started off with a carreer in the Marines and finished as a law enforcement officer. Now he builds AR's as a gunsmith in retirement. He knows his stuff. Every guy that sees this wants to order one.

    I'll update if I have any issues with the breaking in process.

    Take the leap. You won't be disappointed.
    Wow

    This gun is without a doubt the best starter AR in the market. Blasted 400 plus rounds down range no problem. I can easily see BCA becoming a known and respected name in the AR World. Much Much probs to Classic arms for having these at such a great price and as always shipping was crazy fast!

    I got one of the last rifles when they were still MMC(same gun).I got it in like 4 days, I bought extra mags and a carry handle with sight. ran 200rds. of Federal American Eagle through it as fast as I could, ate em all with no problem. For a $500 gun with a case and great service I am very happy. The only negative point was for the finish, I think it could be better, but that does not effect the performance of the weapon. If I had more cash I would buy 5 more! Very Happy THANK-YOU.
