Traded an AR I had laying around for a Non-Ported 9L CORE. Came with 5 mags, a bladetech holster, Talon grips, Apex Ram, and supposedly the APEX Competition kit.
The trigger feels really good outside of the curved trigger. Nice and smooth.
Finish is decent, a few wear spots from where the guy holstered it.
Bad news is no original parts and he lost all but the #2 plate, including the original Cover.
Hopefully Smith will replace those. I have a Burris Fast Fire 3 on the way, as that is what a buddy is using, and was told I needed the #5 plate.
Kind of wanted a ported model, but none showing up on the trader places here so I jumped on this one. To be honest, I didn't notice much difference, if any, on my buddies Ported CORE and my Pro 5".

(The pin for the sear block housing is missing from the 5" Pro because the new CORE came with some thumb rest thing that had a longer pin)
