If you need an AR Style rifle or pistol, CORE Rifle Systems has you covered!  Located in Ocala, Florida, right off Interstate 75, CORE rifle systems is a subsidiary of Good Times Outdoors and has been building AR pattern guns since 2010.  One look at their website,, and you’ll be sold!  CORE has AR pattern guns in multiple configurations and calibers such as .223/5.56, 300 Blackout, 6.5 Grendel, 6.5 Creedmoor, and .308!

Let’s take a look at some of the goods being produced at CORE.  The pistol pictured above caught my eye.  It’s a folding “Truck Gun” chambered in 300 BLK.  It features a 7.5-inch barrel with a 1:7 twist with a 4150 black nitride finish and a free floating M-LOK handguard.  The upper and lower receivers are CORE 7075-T6 aluminum forged with a CORE billet charging handle.  It’s finished off with a Sylvan Arms folding stock adapter, SBA3 pistol brace, and a Magpul MOE pistol grip.

If a long gun is more your style, CORE can hook you up also.  They have long guns in different calibers, with various barrel lengths.  If you need parts, barrels, suppressors, etc., CORE can take care of that also.  They carry a full line of parts for your AR gun needs.

Whether you’re a Floridian or a Yankee fleeing government oppression and moving to Florida, stop by CORE Rifle Systems in Ocala and take in all the freedom.  While you’re there, visit CORE’s sister companies GTO Airboats, Porterfield Knife & Tool, and pick you up some guns, knives, and an airboat!

That’s all for now folks!   Please keep sending in your questions, tips, and article Ideas.  And as always – “Let’s Be Careful Out There.”
