Opinions on Core 15

Picked up a stripped lower from Core 15. Nice looking forged 7075 lower. Planning on finishing the build with a vermin style upper and yes WOOD furniture.
Anyway does anyone have any experience with there upper assemblies or parts?
Price wise they seem mid line

Just prior to the mass shooting in Connecticut I bought a CORE 15 (basic model) for my son for Christmas and it has been a very good AR style rifle. I have a S&W M&P 15 MOE and he liked shooting mine so much I figured it to be a good entry in the AR world and it did not disappoint.
They are not that well known, but they put together a pretty good basic rifle.

I put a CORE15 LPK in a Mega Arm lower. That trigger is way nicer than the trigger in my wife's (she confiscated it from me after shooting 5 rounds) S&W Sport. Noticable right away. She asked me to put one in her rifle.

Core 15 AR

I've been shooting a Smith, Bushmaster, Windham and more recently (2014) a CORE15. The Smith and CORE came with the best triggers. The CORE came with by far the worst fit between the lower and upper receivers. It wiggles side to side, up and down, and makes a "clunk" when you pickup the gun. Even the Clinton gun ban era Bushmaster that has been assembled and disassembled hundreds of times is much tighter. That said, the gun shoots. If you don't mind putting one of those red urethane buffer gizmos under the rear pin get one.

I realize this is an old thread, but if you are like me, you'd search the net before you buy a new gun to see what people are saying today.
