Brutus' Description

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. 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.

I have two late 2013 MMC (pre Bear Creek) ARs. Fit and finish is fine, and no problems at the range. If the new ones are even better, then great.
Don't buy it for the hard case though.

Review by AARON on 6/2/15

I bought two of these rifles after reading many positive reviews on them. Upon arrival i cleaned them and did a thorough inspection of the rifles. Both were well built and the finish was better than expected. Do not get any ideas though. These are basic, bare bones carbines. No complaints here, and they were exactly as described. Once i got them to the range though, things started to get interesting. One of the two ate through m855, m193, and several mags of my varmint reloads without a problem. Its shot very well too, probably about a 1.5 moa with iron sights, and to be honest, i wasnt trying for microscopic groups. The other rifle is a different story. That one is a problem child. It fed m193 ok, but refused to feed and fire anything else. It absolutely hated my reloads, while my custom AR and its twin sibling just loved the loads. I know what youre thinking... Reloads... Im very anal with my hunting ammo reloads and go to great pains to ensure they are very consistant. The bolt refused to lock fully into battery, would have a failure to feed, or would just refuse to do anything reliably. Popped those same rounds into its twin, and they fired without a hiccup. Even switched out BCGs with its twin to no avail. Im going to see if a few more mags of m193 will help to break it in, otherwise im contacting the company for repair. I gave it four stars simply because im very happy with the fully functional twin and cant complain at all about the excellent value. Overall, great job yet again Classic.
great firearm
Review by chelle on 6/1/15

Great firearm very well made. Tighter fit between upper and lower than most high dollar ARs I've shot. Shipping was slower than expected but no biggie I guess. The case is flimsy and not well made but serves its purpose if u want to keep it from bouncing around. Stock has some wiggle in it but for price u cannot beat it.

I have the MMC Version. Great rifle but jams with some ammo. Carl Gustaf it eats. PMC XTAC Same. Others it has small issues. Going to buy a BCA anyway with carry handle and roll the dice. Wish they had a heavy barrel version. Love the MMC Version but it likes 556 62 gr best. Stay away from Independence ammo and only use brass.
Well built , Accurate. great AR

Been wanting one for a long time so i bought one . Had a reputable gun smith check it out . He was impressed with it . After i told him how much i paid for it he was stunned . He also said it was tighter than a lot of Bushmasters and colts .

What an incredible deal. American made and priced right! The rifle was perfect in all aspects and quite frankly could easily be sold for more! Very happy all the way around. Classic and Bear Creek are quite a team! Buy one before they are out of stock again...hell...buy 2!
10/10, would recommend.
Review by Jake on 5/6/15
Quality
I was skeptical of this rifle, but for 500 dollars I decided even if it sucked pretty badly, it was worth the money. I've been spoiled by cheap AK-pattern rifles, so shelling out a grand+ for an AR15 has been distasteful to me.

I have been thoroughly impressed by pretty much everything this rifle has going on. Its fit-and-finish are on par with my Colt AR15. Its accuracy is comparable. I've put about 500 rounds through it personally, both reloads and factory loads of 5.56 and .223. Only one failure, which was a failure to extract on a Wolf steel case. So that one really isn't the rifles fault.

POI, even right out of the box, was only about 3 inches higher than expected at 100 meters. A quick dial-in and we were shooting sub-MOA groups with Federal ammo. Wolf ammo was right around MOA, and various hand-loads were all over the place. This was consistent with my Colt (Except for Wolf, which the Colt puts around 1.5-2MOA).

The trigger leaves a bit to be desired, but for a straight-off-the-line, stock rifle, it's better than it needs to be.

The *only* criticism I have is that it seems to not dig on steel cases in general. This might be an issue that goes away as the rifle becomes more worn in. I'll update down the road if that changes.

Across the board, this is as good as, if not better than, a run-of-the-mill Colt straight from the factory. I'd recommend investing in an aftermarket trigger, some fancy furniture, and leaving it alone.
Excellent Bargin!
Review by Jim on 5/5/15

Outstanding weapon. The weapon is beautifully constructed and shoots like a dream. Shot both brass and steel case flawlessly with zero issues. Popped on a MBUS and had it zeroed in 8 or 9 rounds at 100 yards and the silhouette targets are totally dead! Love this AR and wish I'd have bought two at that price. Thanks once again Classic - this is like the 8th or 10th weapon I've purchased form Classic in the last 5 or 6 years . Exceptionally great service and the shipping was like lightening. I'll be back for more folks!
great gun for great price

Great Rifle shoots well with Privi Partizan .223 and a Aimpoint PRO, the olny thing that was wrong with the rifle is it arrived with a loose buffertube.

Review by Mason on 4/17/15

First off ClassicFirearms was very easy to do business with, the service and overall timing and handling of the order was excellent will definitely do business with them again, Now about the gun.. .. It finish seems nice and durable, fit of the upper and lower is snug the action is smooth, but the stock is absolute junk ive never felt such wobble in a stock before of course you could just put your own on but still an annoyance, and now to the mag well, the gun comes with a tapco mag which fits decent but still has a slight wobble, i know they warned about using just tapco mags but i figured if its milspec it should be fine with magpul pmags.....i was wrong the wobble with pmags is unbelievable its to a point which i cant just ignore . The rifle however shoots great no hangups at all ran through 150+ rounds 5.56 and .223 (all 55gr) no problems overall the gun is good for $520 shipped from classic and whatever your ffl charges its still not a horrible purchase but if you want something that needs less work out of the box id go a different direction and if you do get one DO NOT BUY MAGPUL PMAGS for this gun you will regret it , i woud give it 4 stars just because its still a great deal, but that mag well issue needs to be addressed its just nonsense the tolerances are way out so it gets 3

Hi Mason - Thanks for your review. It appears you received some sort of anomaly as we are not experiencing the mag well issue you have described on ones we tested here. Give us a call if you'd like us to have Bear Creek address the issue for you.

Excellent AR15

Do yourself a favor and buy this rifle before it sells out again. I lucked out a few months back and got a killer deal when it was on sale for $440. You can't beat that anywhere for what you are getting. A quality well made ar15 chambered in 223 wylde which shoots 556 and 223 flawlessly. Very accurate. 500 rounds in and it's just gettin warmed up. Why are you still reading this? Get it and go out and shoot!
Awesome rifle and very accurate

I bought this AR-15 around two weeks ago. Recv as described. i've take it to the range and shot over 200 rounds already and I haven't had no misfired or any kind of problems. Rifle very accurate and reliable. I've shot 400 yrds and hit the target. Will go to the 600 yrds. Will recommend this rifle. Very happy with purchase.
Outstand right out of the Box !

Received AR last week first one price was great . Added Magpul Accessories just got ammo today. Only one mag but ran flawlessly. All total about 625 in gun deck out. Worth every penny. Can't wait to shoot some more. Thanks Dave

Review by jeff on 4/6/15
Quality
I bought this rifle because it had 108 good reviews so lets make it 109. this was my first transaction with classic and they just made a customer out of me. I received the rifle 4 days after I made the order! The rifle is a basic Barbie but I dressed her up with magpul furniture and a vortex sparcII off ebay on the cheap. Took it to the 50 yard line and got her zeroed in with less than a full cap mag. I put another 3 mags dwn range after zeroing in the optic and all the rounds were bullseye in a 1 inch group. no fails. infact ill be putting another one on layaway right now. great deal.
Great Rifle for the Money
Review by Joel on 4/2/15
Quality
Very good turn around from Classic in processing my order. Received the rifle, field stripped, inspected and cleaned it before shooting. Excellent form and fit of the component parts. I was impressed. This rifle is of higher quality than the M16's I worked on in the US Army. Shooting went well with no FTF or FTE in 250 rounds. I am not a real fan of any of the AR platforms, but I am a fan of quality of manufacture of any gun. The Bear Creek Arsenal makes more than decent weapon at a great price point.

    I was skeptical of this rifle, but for 500 dollars I decided even if it sucked pretty badly, it was worth the money. I've been spoiled by cheap AK-pattern rifles, so shelling out a grand+ for an AR15 has been distasteful to me.

    I have been thoroughly impressed by pretty much everything this rifle has going on. Its fit-and-finish are on par with my Colt AR15. Its accuracy is comparable. I've put about 500 rounds through it personally, both reloads and factory loads of 5.56 and .223. Only one failure, which was a failure to extract on a Wolf steel case. So that one really isn't the rifles fault.

    POI, even right out of the box, was only about 3 inches higher than expected at 100 meters. A quick dial-in and we were shooting sub-MOA groups with Federal ammo. Wolf ammo was right around MOA, and various hand-loads were all over the place. This was consistent with my Colt (Except for Wolf, which the Colt puts around 1.5-2MOA).

    The trigger leaves a bit to be desired, but for a straight-off-the-line, stock rifle, it's better than it needs to be.

    The *only* criticism I have is that it seems to not dig on steel cases in general. This might be an issue that goes away as the rifle becomes more worn in. I'll update down the road if that changes.

    Across the board, this is as good as, if not better than, a run-of-the-mill Colt straight from the factory. I'd recommend investing in an aftermarket trigger, some fancy furniture, and leaving it alone.
    Excellent Bargin!

    Outstanding weapon. The weapon is beautifully constructed and shoots like a dream. Shot both brass and steel case flawlessly with zero issues. Popped on a MBUS and had it zeroed in 8 or 9 rounds at 100 yards and the silhouette targets are totally dead! Love this AR and wish I'd have bought two at that price. Thanks once again Classic - this is like the 8th or 10th weapon I've purchased form Classic in the last 5 or 6 years . Exceptionally great service and the shipping was like lightening. I'll be back for more folks!
    great gun for great price

    I bought a 2nd BCA AR15. I've had my 1st BCA AR15 for about a year now and it has been great. Very accurate. Will shoot anything and everything you put in it. Might buy another BCA AR15 soon. Will recommend to anyone.
    Good Rifle

    Great Rifle shoots well with Privi Partizan .223 and a Aimpoint PRO, the olny thing that was wrong with the rifle is it arrived with a loose buffertube.
    ok...

    First off ClassicFirearms was very easy to do business with, the service and overall timing and handling of the order was excellent will definitely do business with them again, Now about the gun.. .. It finish seems nice and durable, fit of the upper and lower is snug the action is smooth, but the stock is absolute junk ive never felt such wobble in a stock before of course you could just put your own on but still an annoyance, and now to the mag well, the gun comes with a tapco mag which fits decent but still has a slight wobble, i know they warned about using just tapco mags but i figured if its milspec it should be fine with magpul pmags.....i was wrong the wobble with pmags is unbelievable its to a point which i cant just ignore . The rifle however shoots great no hangups at all ran through 150+ rounds 5.56 and .223 (all 55gr) no problems overall the gun is good for $520 shipped from classic and whatever your ffl charges its still not a horrible purchase but if you want something that needs less work out of the box id go a different direction and if you do get one DO NOT BUY MAGPUL PMAGS for this gun you will regret it , i woud give it 4 stars just because its still a great deal, but that mag well issue needs to be addressed its just nonsense the tolerances are way out so it gets 3

    Hi Mason - Thanks for your review. It appears you received some sort of anomaly as we are not experiencing the mag well issue you have described on ones we tested here. Give us a call if you'd like us to have Bear Creek address the issue for you.

    Do yourself a favor and buy this rifle before it sells out again. I lucked out a few months back and got a killer deal when it was on sale for $440. You can't beat that anywhere for what you are getting. A quality well made ar15 chambered in 223 wylde which shoots 556 and 223 flawlessly. Very accurate. 500 rounds in and it's just gettin warmed up. Why are you still reading this? Get it and go out and shoot!
    Awesome rifle and very accurate

    I bought this AR-15 around two weeks ago. Recv as described. i've take it to the range and shot over 200 rounds already and I haven't had no misfired or any kind of problems. Rifle very accurate and reliable. I've shot 400 yrds and hit the target. Will go to the 600 yrds. Will recommend this rifle. Very happy with purchase.
    Outstand right out of the Box !

    I bought this rifle because it had 108 good reviews so lets make it 109. this was my first transaction with classic and they just made a customer out of me. I received the rifle 4 days after I made the order! The rifle is a basic Barbie but I dressed her up with magpul furniture and a vortex sparcII off ebay on the cheap. Took it to the 50 yard line and got her zeroed in with less than a full cap mag. I put another 3 mags dwn range after zeroing in the optic and all the rounds were bullseye in a 1 inch group. no fails. infact ill be putting another one on layaway right now. great deal.
    Great Rifle for the Money

    Very good turn around from Classic in processing my order. Received the rifle, field stripped, inspected and cleaned it before shooting. Excellent form and fit of the component parts. I was impressed. This rifle is of higher quality than the M16's I worked on in the US Army. Shooting went well with no FTF or FTE in 250 rounds. I am not a real fan of any of the AR platforms, but I am a fan of quality of manufacture of any gun. The Bear Creek Arsenal makes more than decent weapon at a great price point.
