I get a lot of people who want to give us a hard time about being "New" Players in the AR Market. I try my best to reason with them that just because we are new to the AR market, doesnt necessarily mean that our product isnt awesome. Every company was "new" at some point. As quite a few of you are probably aware, our parent company (GTO Performance Airboats) has been Manufacturing some of the highest quality and most innovative airboats on the market for over 15 years now. We are by no means an "upstart company" and we would like to show everyone that. I personally invite you to stop by our location in Ocala, Fl and take a look at our Rifles (and boats). Some of our friendly, eager staff would be more than happy to assist you with any questions you may have about any of our products. We look forward to having some of you drop by. ~Josh M.

I have been dealing with this company for a few months now. They are above board and I have to agree with him... The sales staff goes out of their way to assist you. I have a few AR's and have two Core 15 lowers that I am in the process of building. For the 10 year CFDCC shoot, the guys at Core put my billet lower together so I could use it at the shoot. I have run about 300 rounds (low count I know) through this rifle and it has become my new go to gun. In fact I am more pleased with it than I am my S&W MP15T and BCM...

Just my .02

I really like the airboat, how much do they run and how hard is it to learn how to drive one? (I have plenty of boat seat time, just not in an air boat, yet)

Nice to see what appears to be a well stocked, well run dealer right up the road from me in Ocala. I'll have to check them out also.

I've been in the shop a few times over the past few years. The Core rifles looked and felt very well put together and they have a large selection compared to any other local shop in the Alachua/Marion County area. The prices are also competitive on items I was interested in. They had a few suppressors in stock as well and Josh was cool to just sit around and talk with while I looked around. If they sold beer it would be better than Walmart, where else can you get your fill of firearms and airboats at the same location. I will definitely spend money at this location again.

I always wanted an air boat and yet I have never been on one. Do you ever give test rides ?

Do you guys make your own lowers, uppers, bolts, etc or just assembling them

They have CNC machines and cut thier own uppers and lowers. They do buy a lot of other parts.

AGR1279 is correct. We do manufacture our own lowers and uppers in house. We feel that by doing this we have a much tighter ability to regulate our Quality Control. Products that we do not manufacture in house are acquired from reputable manufacturers in the industry. ~Josh M.

I do not currently offer a special on a complete rifle minus the receivers. I'm sure that we could put something together for you though if you would like. ~Josh M.

i won that noveske upper/lower in the fdcc raffle. i wasnt planning on building another rfile but now the bug has me

i have a stripped lower an upper, a muzzle brake, and a trigger guard to work with lol. i need everything else and like supporting local places.

ive got enough to do a buget build and am not looking for anything fancy. pretty much a KISS rifle. the most fancy bit i wanna run is a magpul MOE handguard and AFG and a bad lever lol.

anyways my first order of business is a barrel and BCG since they are the most expensive.

Glad to hear you won that upper. It was a nice one. Give us a shout or stop by if you get a little extra time and we can work something up for you. ~Josh M.

Not sure if you remember me, but I drove up from Orlando during the week a few months ago to pick up the 7.5" Lothar Walther Barrel for my pistol build.

You guys actually had a nice selection of parts when I went up there a few months ago. Anyhow, keep doing what you're doing, people will always talk.

looks like the control freaks here in Alachua County passed their Airboat Curfew.
I just hope they don't expand it any...


Been looking at those Core-15 lowers for a while, guess I'll get one soon.

What's the price on your fifty calibers? Looking at getting into big bore fun. Also looking at moving out of Florida to Texas but I'd like to support local industry in my Birth State.
