I couldn't really tell from the video, but was this the DI or gas piston model he was using? I've had limited experience with gas piston system, but I've been told the chamber stays a lot cooler than with a DI system (in addition to being a lot cleaner as well.) This means that the bolt and carrier stay cooler as well, making it more reliable. Anyone want to back this up?

HELP! I sold my soul to the internet
Loving that optic! I was having a hard time finding a decent pic of it mounted.

I dont get why these rifles and the Stags have threaded flash hiders and the DD's have to be welded on. They're all imported and are subject to the same reg's.

Would the DD barrels be under 16.5" if the flash hiders could be removed?
04-29-2012, 10:25 PM
Im assuming so. The barrel is in and of itself 16". Technically the flash hider should not contribute as part of the barrel length IIRC. Not sure about when its welded on though if its counts towards bbl length.

Either way the price point of the Core makes it very tempting. Never shot or held either of the 3 (DD, Stag, Core) but the Core's reviews seem good and it has the advantage of already having all the Mag-pul sh*t I would want to be putting on it anyways!!

The flash hider contributes to the overall barrel length when it is non removable. That is how US companies are able to export under ITAR with a barrel under 16.5.

So how is it that your Core has a removable FH then?

Good point. Just re-checked and the minimum is 16"afterall. Best to ask the manufacturer directly. Could be a condition of their particular export agreement. Just like some manufacturers won't export barrels with M203 cutouts or bayonet lugs. The CORE has both. I gave up trying to impart logic when it come to firearms regulations a long time ago.
