    WTB - Core 15 Tac iii AR 15 or very similar

    DISCLAIMER: Always comply with local, state, federal and international law. The Outdoor Trading Post IS NOT involved in your personal transactions.


    Location: Auburn GA
    Zip Code: 30011
    For Sale or Trade: Sale
    Price or Trade Value: 900-1000
    Caliber: 5.56
    Willing to Ship: No
    Bill of Sale?: Yes

    Item Description:

    I had one lined up which sold before I could get up to meet the guy...was a brand new Core 15 Tac iii with red/green dot and laser scope. Would like to get something along the same line, really like the specs on it. Looking in the $800-$1100 range

    Things I am looking for:

    1:7 twist
    Lightweight
    Mil spec
    No Frankenstein guns please...I like custom builds, but would prefer those done on my own
    Prefer flat top


    Basically, I would like it as close to the tac iii as possible (or the tac iii itself) possibly interested in certain Colts and Daniel defense.... NOT interested in bushmaster or dpms

    If it's lightweight it's not mil spec.

    You also realize that custom is just another word for frankengun right?

    I beg to differ.... the core is mil-spec, and look at the unloaded weight...just over 5 lbs. That is lightweight, that is mil spec. Not to mention, my last issue firearm was lightweight and had plenty of "extras".....are you to say a military weapon (obvious mil spec) cannot be lightweight?

    And yes, I understand what "custom" is. Please read the statement carefully... I said if I want that, I prefer to be the one to do it. Otherwise it's not "custom" to me....it's somebody else's platform design, so no different than buying something stock off the shelves because I will likely change things.....but I also have a company to yell at if something is done wrong. If you build a weapon, and do something "wrong" in the build or take shortcuts, I may not know unless I break it down to barebones. I'd rather not trust every average Joe's abilities THAT much..

    The upper and lower might be to mil spec's BUT the entire rifle is not mil spec, and technically there is no third hole in the lower so it really isn't mil spec

    If we wanna get down to brass tax, NO civilian AR is "mil spec" because they aren't gov regulated and many other factors....I am not asking for a "military" rife here....I am asking for QUALITY for a decent price (not more than what I can buy one online or locally for).

    And btw....third hole to me means squat. I am not trying to build something illegal. I never even liked the way it worked on that rifle platform when I was in. For anything auto, I would go with something pre-ban and take the necessary legal steps. I have no "need" for an automatic weapon...I plan on re-honing my "distance" shooting (hence the 1:7 twist). I have only done short range shooting the past couple years

    Depends on whether you're selling or buying.
