AR-15 Rifle .223 / 5.56 NATO Caliber Semi Auto Target Ready Rifle W / M4 Barrel, 2 - 30 Round Mags and Hard Case by Bear Creek Arsenal
Rifle features a Mounted Quick Detachable A-3 Carry Handle with Micrometer Adjustable A2 Sights so you can swap from open sights
to an in line scope ready flat top rifle in seconds... Once sighted in Carry Handle Rear Sight will Remove and Re-Attach without losing Zero.  
Sights are finder tip adjustable for windage and elevation. This model also comes with an additional 30 round Mag. 

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 , A3 Carry Handle, and 2-30 round magazines.... 

Some photo's may show rifle with 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 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.

Bear Creek Review
Review by Firefighter60 on 9/22/14

I got mine shipped to a local FFL dealer. When I brought it home and unpacked the rifle I was impressed with the finish and the construction of the weapon, I have owned several AR-15's . Although this is a basic AR it will do what I need it to do just fine. I have already put a scope on it and changed out some furniture on the weapon. I have a few more changes to make then off to the range. See ya soon
My First AR-15
Review by Howard on 8/27/14
Quality
Looks to be a fine weapon - good build quality. I don't have another AR to compare it to, but the fit and finish looks every bit as good as the brand name rifles and pistols that I own - in some cases even better. The rifle was delivered within a week of ordering, and the FFL that it was shipped to, (and with which I was not familiar) was less than 4 miles from where I live. No hassle with them, very friendly, and I will be using them again! (Target Zero Supplies, St. Cloud, FL). Plan on putting some metal down range after I return from a trip up North. Classic is the first place I check when I'm looking to buy more firepower.
I'm really pleased.

Man you guys really hit a homerun with this rifle. My son and I went to the range,yesterday. He had a m4 in the service,and said that this one brought back memories. It shot well with the iron sights.( keyholed a few).I can't wait, till I put a scope on it, and really see what it'll do ... Thanks, Bear Creek, and Classic fire arms. for a quality firearm at a reasonable price..

Picked up my Bear Creek AR yesterday 7/16/2014
You said this was a great deal and you did not lie.
Fit and finish is first class.
Upper and lower halves of my rifle fit perfect with no gap or movement as in some models I saw on the internet.
Looks as good as it gets. No one would guess how much it cost.
I bought this from Classic because of my past good experience with purchases.
Thank You Classic!
I have a picture but do not know how to upload , help!

5 Stars for Bear Creek Arsenal
Review by James on 6/23/14

This is a follow-up on this great deal from Classic Firearms. I finally have had the opportunity to take my new Bear Creek AR out to the range twice. What a joy to shoot! I started with 25 rounds of 62gr 5.56 brass then another 125 rounds of 55gr .223 steel. Not a single failure. Operation was nice and smooth. Accuracy is very good. The Bear Creek Arsenal AR-15 is great quality at a great price and just plain fun. "Another great deal from Classic Firearms".
BCA AR-15 Great Deal
Review by James on 6/19/14
Quality
The Bear Creek Arsenal AR-15 is my second purchase from Classic Firearms and my first AR platform rifle. After deciding to purchase an entry level AR, I shopped around for a long time when I found the BCA. It had all the features I was looking for plus a hard case and an extra magazine at an outstanding price. It's a Great Deal! It took a little longer to receive than I had hoped but that was ok as I was not in a hurry. I'm very happy with the out of box quality, everything feels solid, mags don't wiggle around and the adjustable stock is not shaky. My only problem is I've now had it for a couple of weeks and have not had the opportunity to get out and shoot! That's the only reason I rated 4 stars. If it shoots as well as I expect it's 5 stars.
First AR and impressed!
Review by Shadly on 5/23/14

Have always wanted an AR and when I saw this it had everything that I had wanted in one. Had several people more knowledgeable than me check it out. They scrutinized it and tore it apart before giving it a thumbs up. Shot 223 and 556 through it at the range and it preformed like a champ. Absolutely no regrets over this purchase.

nice rifle
Review by Matthew on 5/10/14
Quality
Great rifle, first ar15 and finish is great, no nicks or scratches. After I shot the rifle for the first time (100 rounds) it jammed twice, which I assume is part of the break in process so I'm not worried. Was shooting independance brass, idk if that's good ammo. Will say buying this rifle when their is a known delay would be something to be prepared for though. I just received the rifle on may 6th, when I purchased it on march 28th. I contacted classic twice, and they put me on the next to go list. Shipped the next day. So they will try their best to make you happy. But just be prepared on how long it just may take. Bought the mosin m44 with it, shoots great.

Review by Steve on 5/10/14

After 3 months of receiving the Bear creek AR 15 from CF I finally made it to the range today. (work sucks) Back to the point, I shot 30 rounds each of American Eagle 5.56 55 grain,Colt 223 64 grain steel cased and Tula 223,steel cased 55 grain. not one FTF. Groupings were tight right out of the free gun case.(not to bad for my old eyes). I bought the rifle before the price increase. What a deal. CF had great customer service and reasonable shipping cost. I am new to the AR family and have no regrets of purchasing his rifle. It shipped within 1 week and all of my shooting buds could not believe the price for an entry level AR. Don't hesitate an get one before they raise the price again.

Great deal!
Review by kmesr9 on 4/24/14
Quality
This is my first AR and I researched heavily, consulted my FFL guy and he told me it was a great buy. He reviewed it and told me as a first AR it was all mil-spec and could be built on. It arrived and we both checked it out. Very good buy and he said even with the price increase people would still get their money's worth. I got it ordered up before the 3/31/14 date and took it our the Sunday before Easter and shot 100 rounds through it. Iron sights and 30yds got 3" groups and shot the hell out of a bunch of random placed orange clay pigeons! Not one misfire using .223 brass 55gr FMJBT ammo. Simply Happy with this purchase! Thanks.
Great Entry Level AR-15!
Review by Adam on 4/22/14
Quality
This is a fantastic entry level AR. The fit and finish is outstanding and on par with rifles twice its price. The gun came very well oiIed. I was able to shoot very respectable 50 yard groups right out of the box with no adjustments to the sights. The ONLY downside I found was the carry handle started to come loose after about 20 rounds. A little Loc-Tite fixed that right up. I mixed up the ammo for the first 200 rounds, and it ran everything I fed it, including steel cased Tula.
excellent
Review by Jamie on 4/19/14
Quality
The manufacturer has had bad reviews in the3 past but this weapon, I have ordered three is just as good quality as a bushmaster or dpms. Most don't like the weapon because it dosent have a chromed lined barrel or bolt, not not a big issue unless you plan on dropping the gun in mud and not keeping it clean. Performs flawless so far after 400. No issues so far. Accurate but most ars are. Cant go wrong with this weapon.
Great

Excellent first impression and service
Review by Buckshot on 4/18/14

I just received my Bear Creek Arsenal AR-15 today and haven't taken to the range yet. But my first impressions are very good. The workmanship looks great, I love the rail under the carrying handle, fit and finish are very good. I really think the value is top notch. As always, the service from Classic Firearms was excellent.
Very Good M4 for the price of a Low End AK.
Review by Medved on 4/8/14
Quality
I paid $549.99 for this package. $18.01 for shipping. $25.00 transfer fee. $593.00 total. For a decent, working and accurate M4, can't be beat. Took about 2.5 - 3 weeks to get here. Outstanding value for the money. For the price of a CIA WASR AK, you get a very good M4 and it is a deal that I would advise anyone to jump on, even at 619.99. And, yes, the machining and quality is better than the drunken monkey specials from Century. Prefer this rifle to a DPMS, Olympic, Windham or PTAC every day. Almost as good as a PSA or Core 15.

What I like about the carbine:
1). Lower is machined as well as any. Trigger is good.
2). Finish is decent for the money, locks up tight: good fit.
3). As accurate as any M4 on the market when you do your job and particularly likes 55 grain Federals.
4). No FTFs, No FTE 100 rounds and counting.
5). Tapco Gen.2 30s are GTG and as good as PMAGs. Drop Free, cycle well, tough, quality magazines.
6). Carry Handle is quality and tight. Sights Adjust well.
7). Not much light between my upper and lower, and they fit tight. As good as any Bushmaster, Smith and Wesson or Stag. Really like the Lower.
8). Likes all magazines: polymer and aluminum and steel. (As an aside - stay away from Thermold garbage and Sportman's Guide SWT Swiss junk! These mags are not worth your time or money.)
9). Lifetime warranty.

What I don't like:
1). Front Sight post is a casting.
2). 4 Position buttstock, not 6 position: and it is polymer, not aluminum.
3). Not Chrome lined barrel.
4). 1:9 and not 1:8 (best choice) or 1:7 twist.
5). Upper is decently machined, but still there are rough spots. I would grade machining at about B to B+ as opposed to A grade lower.
6). Bolt carrier is decently machined but not as smooth as higher end ARs.
7). Didn't come with a sling.
8). Minor cosmetics (which do not affect function) in the eveness of the anodizing on the upper: lower is excellent. Parkerizing is very good.

If it were priced at 699.00, I would give it 4 stars. But because it is 619.00 with the price increase, essentially the price of an AK, and comes with a lifetime warranty and is GTG out of the hard case without the issues of notorious cheap AKs, this carbine rates as a 5 star value overall. For those looking to buy a decent home defense carbine, this is a best buy. The lower is very good and would be a platform I would use for other, higher end uppers.
Great Bargain
Review by Wyatt Earp on 4/5/14

This is a well made gun and shoots very accurate, I don,t think you can get a better bargain than this one. I do suggest getting the one with the iron sight carry handle since they both have the front sight.

When I picked this up from the FFL, he asked where I bought this from because he wanted to buy one. He said it was the best price for a quality AR that he has ever seen. Went to the range today and shot 60 rounds. 40 were steel cased Tula. No problems at all. Very accurate right out of the box . Wish I had the money to buy another !

Review by Neil on 3/30/14

Didn't expect much for this price and was impressed with the fit and finish right off ! Tried it out on the range with reloads and was nailing a 18" target at 100 yards with the A2 sights . Good grouping right out of the box Tried it next with a firefeild scope but couldn't quite get it zeroed in, I think the recoil was messing up the electric scope. Went through 200 reloads with out a misfire. Very happy with purchase .

So far rifle looks real nice, lines are good receivers came together easy (noticed larger than normal gaps between receivers). Cleaned and ready for real firing later this week (will add additional review). Thanks must go out to Classic Firearms for great service and delivery times. 4 stars for for some rough internal machinery and gap in receivers.
Good gun great deal
Review by Ray on 3/24/14
Quality
I'm impressed. The gun looks great inside and out. Shot about 50 rounds at about 200 yards. The gun is easy to be accurate with. Had one round fail to cycle...didn't like that. I really like the rear sight and I liked the plastic mags better than my steel and aluminum ones. Glad they included the hard case, kinda flimsy but better than a cardboard box.
The gun showed up faster than classic said and I like the no up charge for credit card.

Review of the Bear Creek Arsenal AR-15
Review by Deezil on 3/15/14
Quality
Never really been into the AR game. Stuck with AK's over the years and decided to jump on this deal Classic had going for the Bear Creek Arsenal Ar-15. I had the Rifle sent to my Local FFL and on the day I went to pick it up several of my friends with AR's where there chewing the fat ans they all were flabbergasted seeing I Actually bought a AR... Next thing I know the rifle was completely taken down on the counter and scrutinized by all of them. No one had anything bad to say and they all were astounded by the price. I had no ammo for this rifle so a trip to the Local Wal-mart was in order. Unfortunately all they had was Steel cased Tula ammo in .223 over the course of a few days I was able to drum up about 200 rounds of steel case .223. Today was my first range session with it and after a few twist of the rear site knob I was able to get it dialed in. I ran 125 rounds through it with not one malfunction. Some of it was rapid fire but most from bench and a few from standing. The accuracy is spot on even for my Shaky old self. I was able to fire 40 rounds of brass cased 556 a friend brought along after he had trouble with his rifle. I am glad I picked this up and I will say if you want a AR and you have limited funds You really need to check this out. Classic looks like they are holding the price for a bit so get on it and get one before the price goes up.
Like it so far.

My first AR 15 but not new to fire arms.
Nice fit up and quality build.
Will shoot soon so can't review how it runs.
FFL said they would buy all day long at that price.
I took a chance and time will tell if the AR is worth the money.
If the AR goes bang when I pull the trigger every time Ill be happy.
CLASSIC FIREARMS HAS GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE AND COMMUNICATION.
Will buy from again.
Thanks CF.

Just picked this bad boy up yesterday and the range today. Shot .223 wolf steel case with absolutely no problems at all. Thanks to BCA and Classic for the awesome price. Extremely glad I picked this up, no regrets.
A Decent Rifle for The Price
Review by Shay on 3/4/14
Quality
I was very pleased with the fit and finish of the rifle. It's very well-made in my opinion, and I'm ver happy with my purchase.

The only caveat I have is: use the 5.56x45 ammunition versus .223. Winchester 5.56mm cycled flawlessly through it, whereas FTF occurred frequently using .223 ammo.

Shipping and communications were top notch. Thanks you CF!

Bought this gun not knowing much about the company. I knew they were getting some bad rap about there Moore Machine AR's. After seeing some reviews on youtube, I decided to give it a try. Had my FFL guy check it out for me first and he said for the price it was well worth it. I brought it home and took it down for a thorough inspecion and cleaning. Everything looks smooth and well put together. A friend who is 16 years special forces said for an entry level AR, this is just right.
Great rifle

Just shot this for the first time this weekend. Ran a couple hundred rounds through with no issues. Seems to be built very well. Shoots accurate. Grouping was tight. My FFL guy was impressed with its quality for the price.
Quality rifle for the money

First off the communication from classic was great! kept me informed from time shipped to delivered. as for the rifle it seems well made the fit and finish is great. everything is very tight and clean all the line are crisp and sharp. it came with 2 tapco mags and they fit great no wabble. mags lock in as they should. carry handle is well made and fits great and adjust easily as well. I think for the money you will not be disappointed. I have a couple of other higher end Ar15's and this one is just as accurate as those. time will tell on over all longevity but as for now very nice rifle.. The case that is included is also nice fairly compact and easy to put behind a truck seat if needed .

    AR-15 Rifle .223 / 5.56 NATO Caliber Semi Auto Target Ready Rifle W / M4 Barrel, 2 - 30 Round Mags and Hard Case by Bear Creek Arsenal
    Rifle features a Mounted Quick Detachable A-3 Carry Handle with Micrometer Adjustable A2 Sights so you can swap from open sights
    to an in line scope ready flat top rifle in seconds... Once sighted in Carry Handle Rear Sight will Remove and Re-Attach without losing Zero.  
    Sights are finder tip adjustable for windage and elevation. This model also comes with an additional 30 round Mag. 

    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 , A3 Carry Handle, and 2-30 round magazines.... 

    Some photo's may show rifle with 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 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.

    I got mine shipped to a local FFL dealer. When I brought it home and unpacked the rifle I was impressed with the finish and the construction of the weapon, I have owned several AR-15's . Although this is a basic AR it will do what I need it to do just fine. I have already put a scope on it and changed out some furniture on the weapon. I have a few more changes to make then off to the range. See ya soon

    Quality
    Looks to be a fine weapon - good build quality. I don't have another AR to compare it to, but the fit and finish looks every bit as good as the brand name rifles and pistols that I own - in some cases even better. The rifle was delivered within a week of ordering, and the FFL that it was shipped to, (and with which I was not familiar) was less than 4 miles from where I live. No hassle with them, very friendly, and I will be using them again! (Target Zero Supplies, St. Cloud, FL). Plan on putting some metal down range after I return from a trip up North. Classic is the first place I check when I'm looking to buy more firepower.
    I'm really pleased.

    This is a follow-up on this great deal from Classic Firearms. I finally have had the opportunity to take my new Bear Creek AR out to the range twice. What a joy to shoot! I started with 25 rounds of 62gr 5.56 brass then another 125 rounds of 55gr .223 steel. Not a single failure. Operation was nice and smooth. Accuracy is very good. The Bear Creek Arsenal AR-15 is great quality at a great price and just plain fun. "Another great deal from Classic Firearms".

    Review by James on 6/19/14
    Quality
    The Bear Creek Arsenal AR-15 is my second purchase from Classic Firearms and my first AR platform rifle. After deciding to purchase an entry level AR, I shopped around for a long time when I found the BCA. It had all the features I was looking for plus a hard case and an extra magazine at an outstanding price. It's a Great Deal! It took a little longer to receive than I had hoped but that was ok as I was not in a hurry. I'm very happy with the out of box quality, everything feels solid, mags don't wiggle around and the adjustable stock is not shaky. My only problem is I've now had it for a couple of weeks and have not had the opportunity to get out and shoot! That's the only reason I rated 4 stars. If it shoots as well as I expect it's 5 stars.
    First AR and impressed!

    Have always wanted an AR and when I saw this it had everything that I had wanted in one. Had several people more knowledgeable than me check it out. They scrutinized it and tore it apart before giving it a thumbs up. Shot 223 and 556 through it at the range and it preformed like a champ. Absolutely no regrets over this purchase.

    Great rifle, first ar15 and finish is great, no nicks or scratches. After I shot the rifle for the first time (100 rounds) it jammed twice, which I assume is part of the break in process so I'm not worried. Was shooting independance brass, idk if that's good ammo. Will say buying this rifle when their is a known delay would be something to be prepared for though. I just received the rifle on may 6th, when I purchased it on march 28th. I contacted classic twice, and they put me on the next to go list. Shipped the next day. So they will try their best to make you happy. But just be prepared on how long it just may take. Bought the mosin m44 with it, shoots great.

    After 3 months of receiving the Bear creek AR 15 from CF I finally made it to the range today. (work sucks) Back to the point, I shot 30 rounds each of American Eagle 5.56 55 grain,Colt 223 64 grain steel cased and Tula 223,steel cased 55 grain. not one FTF. Groupings were tight right out of the free gun case.(not to bad for my old eyes). I bought the rifle before the price increase. What a deal. CF had great customer service and reasonable shipping cost. I am new to the AR family and have no regrets of purchasing his rifle. It shipped within 1 week and all of my shooting buds could not believe the price for an entry level AR. Don't hesitate an get one before they raise the price again.

    This is my first AR and I researched heavily, consulted my FFL guy and he told me it was a great buy. He reviewed it and told me as a first AR it was all mil-spec and could be built on. It arrived and we both checked it out. Very good buy and he said even with the price increase people would still get their money's worth. I got it ordered up before the 3/31/14 date and took it our the Sunday before Easter and shot 100 rounds through it. Iron sights and 30yds got 3" groups and shot the hell out of a bunch of random placed orange clay pigeons! Not one misfire using .223 brass 55gr FMJBT ammo. Simply Happy with this purchase! Thanks.
    Great Entry Level AR-15!
    Review by Adam on 4/22/14

    This is a fantastic entry level AR. The fit and finish is outstanding and on par with rifles twice its price. The gun came very well oiIed. I was able to shoot very respectable 50 yard groups right out of the box with no adjustments to the sights. The ONLY downside I found was the carry handle started to come loose after about 20 rounds. A little Loc-Tite fixed that right up. I mixed up the ammo for the first 200 rounds, and it ran everything I fed it, including steel cased Tula.
    excellent

    The manufacturer has had bad reviews in the3 past but this weapon, I have ordered three is just as good quality as a bushmaster or dpms. Most don't like the weapon because it dosent have a chromed lined barrel or bolt, not not a big issue unless you plan on dropping the gun in mud and not keeping it clean. Performs flawless so far after 400. No issues so far. Accurate but most ars are. Cant go wrong with this weapon.

The workmanship looks great, I love the rail under the carrying handle, fit and finish are very good. I really think the value is top notch. As always, the service from Classic Firearms was excellent.
    Very Good M4 for the price of a Low End AK.
    Review by Medved on 4/8/14
    Quality
    I paid $549.99 for this package. $18.01 for shipping. $25.00 transfer fee. $593.00 total. For a decent, working and accurate M4, can't be beat. Took about 2.5 - 3 weeks to get here. Outstanding value for the money. For the price of a CIA WASR AK, you get a very good M4 and it is a deal that I would advise anyone to jump on, even at 619.99. And, yes, the machining and quality is better than the drunken monkey specials from Century. Prefer this rifle to a DPMS, Olympic, Windham or PTAC every day. Almost as good as a PSA or Core 15.

    What I like about the carbine:
    1). Lower is machined as well as any. Trigger is good.
    2). Finish is decent for the money, locks up tight: good fit.
    3). As accurate as any M4 on the market when you do your job and particularly likes 55 grain Federals.
    4). No FTFs, No FTE 100 rounds and counting.
    5). Tapco Gen.2 30s are GTG and as good as PMAGs. Drop Free, cycle well, tough, quality magazines.
    6). Carry Handle is quality and tight. Sights Adjust well.
    7). Not much light between my upper and lower, and they fit tight. As good as any Bushmaster, Smith and Wesson or Stag. Really like the Lower.
    8). Likes all magazines: polymer and aluminum and steel. (As an aside - stay away from Thermold garbage and Sportman's Guide SWT Swiss junk! These mags are not worth your time or money.)
    9). Lifetime warranty.

    What I don't like:
    1). Front Sight post is a casting.
    2). 4 Position buttstock, not 6 position: and it is polymer, not aluminum.
    3). Not Chrome lined barrel.
    4). 1:9 and not 1:8 (best choice) or 1:7 twist.
    5). Upper is decently machined, but still there are rough spots. I would grade machining at about B to B+ as opposed to A grade lower.
    6). Bolt carrier is decently machined but not as smooth as higher end ARs.
    7). Didn't come with a sling.
    8). Minor cosmetics (which do not affect function) in the eveness of the anodizing on the upper: lower is excellent. Parkerizing is very good.

    If it were priced at 699.00, I would give it 4 stars. But because it is 619.00 with the price increase, essentially the price of an AK, and comes with a lifetime warranty and is GTG out of the hard case without the issues of notorious cheap AKs, this carbine rates as a 5 star value overall. For those looking to buy a decent home defense carbine, this is a best buy. The lower is very good and would be a platform I would use for other, higher end uppers.
    Great Bargain

    Didn't expect much for this price and was impressed with the fit and finish right off ! Tried it out on the range with reloads and was nailing a 18" target at 100 yards with the A2 sights . Good grouping right out of the box Tried it next with a firefeild scope but couldn't quite get it zeroed in, I think the recoil was messing up the electric scope. Went through 200 reloads with out a misfire. Very happy with purchase .

    I'm impressed. The gun looks great inside and out. Shot about 50 rounds at about 200 yards. The gun is easy to be accurate with. Had one round fail to cycle...didn't like that. I really like the rear sight and I liked the plastic mags better than my steel and aluminum ones. Glad they included the hard case, kinda flimsy but better than a cardboard box.
    The gun showed up faster than classic said and I like the no up charge for credit card.

    Review by Deezil on 3/15/14

    Never really been into the AR game. Stuck with AK's over the years and decided to jump on this deal Classic had going for the Bear Creek Arsenal Ar-15. I had the Rifle sent to my Local FFL and on the day I went to pick it up several of my friends with AR's where there chewing the fat ans they all were flabbergasted seeing I Actually bought a AR... Next thing I know the rifle was completely taken down on the counter and scrutinized by all of them. No one had anything bad to say and they all were astounded by the price. I had no ammo for this rifle so a trip to the Local Wal-mart was in order. Unfortunately all they had was Steel cased Tula ammo in .223 over the course of a few days I was able to drum up about 200 rounds of steel case .223. Today was my first range session with it and after a few twist of the rear site knob I was able to get it dialed in. I ran 125 rounds through it with not one malfunction. Some of it was rapid fire but most from bench and a few from standing. The accuracy is spot on even for my Shaky old self. I was able to fire 40 rounds of brass cased 556 a friend brought along after he had trouble with his rifle. I am glad I picked this up and I will say if you want a AR and you have limited funds You really need to check this out. Classic looks like they are holding the price for a bit so get on it and get one before the price goes up.
    Like it so far.

    My first AR 15 but not new to fire arms.
    Nice fit up and quality build.
    Will shoot soon so can't review how it runs.
    FFL said they would buy all day long at that price.
    I took a chance and time will tell if the AR is worth the money.
    If the AR goes bang when I pull the trigger every time Ill be happy.
    CLASSIC FIREARMS HAS GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE AND COMMUNICATION.
    Will buy from again.
    Thanks CF.

    Just picked this bad boy up yesterday and the range today. Shot .223 wolf steel case with absolutely no problems at all. Thanks to BCA and Classic for the awesome price. Extremely glad I picked this up, no regrets.
    A Decent Rifle for The Price

    I was very pleased with the fit and finish of the rifle. It's very well-made in my opinion, and I'm ver happy with my purchase.

    The only caveat I have is: use the 5.56x45 ammunition versus .223. Winchester 5.56mm cycled flawlessly through it, whereas FTF occurred frequently using .223 ammo.

    Shipping and communications were top notch. Thanks you CF!
    Good Gun, Good Price

    Bought this gun not knowing much about the company. I knew they were getting some bad rap about there Moore Machine AR's. After seeing some reviews on youtube, I decided to give it a try. Had my FFL guy check it out for me first and he said for the price it was well worth it. I brought it home and took it down for a thorough inspecion and cleaning. Everything looks smooth and well put together. A friend who is 16 years special forces said for an entry level AR, this is just right.
    Great rifle

    Just shot this for the first time this weekend. Ran a couple hundred rounds through with no issues. Seems to be built very well. Shoots accurate. Grouping was tight. My FFL guy was impressed with its quality for the price.
    Quality rifle for the money

    First off the communication from classic was great! kept me informed from time shipped to delivered. as for the rifle it seems well made the fit and finish is great. everything is very tight and clean all the line are crisp and sharp. it came with 2 tapco mags and they fit great no wabble. mags lock in as they should. carry handle is well made and fits great and adjust easily as well. I think for the money you will not be disappointed. I have a couple of other higher end Ar15's and this one is just as accurate as those. time will tell on over all longevity but as for now very nice rifle.. The case that is included is also nice fairly compact and easy to put behind a truck seat if needed .
