    Stag AR experience?

    Has anyone had any experience with the STAG left handed AR's or Stag in general? I just picked up 2 (one custom HB carbine, one Std tactical carbine) over the last 2 months and would like any info, advice or comments. Thanks in-advance.

    You bought two before you had any information?! FWIW, perhaps you might've waited to collect a bit more data! Not to criticize, but it bears mentioning. In general, Stag Arms makes great stuff. You can see a great review by Clint Smith on the latest AR offerings in February's GUNS mag. Everything out there for AR's will fit, so tricking it out won't be a problem. I had one in 5.56 that performed flawlessly for a long time before it was sold, and now it is in the hands of a friend mired in sand who relies on it daily.

    Stag is staggeringly good. Haw.

    The prices were too good to pass on. I could have gotten my money back even if they were junk. "Fire Sale" before a court ruling on asset split.

    Stag's are good guns. I would keep them. Lots of good technical AR type info over at m4carbine.net - lots of good general type information over on ar15.com FWIW

    I don't know anything about the long term quality, but one of my co-workers bought a left hand 16" last fall and it was very nice to shoot and seemed very accurate. All I have heard about them is good things.

    I've had one Stag 5.56 lefty, a model 15 3L carbine with the various ambidextrous options. Turns out that the AR really isn't my thing. Something about the ergonomics/feel doesn't quite work for me. So, I'm nobody's expert on the AR. But, I loved the reliability. Easy to work on, easy to use. Being a lefty unit, it surprized everyone at the range, what with getting pelted in the forehead by 5.56 ammo. That, alone, was worth much of the price of admission. The 16" bbl made for a very handy overall length. Accurate out to 200yds or so, though beyond that I am a poor aim (eyes).

    Were you shooting from the hip? I've never had a problem using the right handed guns. I guess they have all had brass deflectors though.

    I had both guns out this weekend between rain storms. The 16" HB has a 1x5 Colt scope with a luminated dot. It shoot 1 to 1 1/4" at 100yd at 5x with remington and wwb 55gr fmj. The tactical 16" has an EO-Tech unit with no magnification. It shoot great up to 50 yards but after that my old eyes had troble seeing the target dot at 100yd. Got 3 -4 inches but I was very pleased with both guns. They appear to be keepers.
    The trigger pulls on both are about 3 lbs after take up. Is this normal or have these been worked on?
    Someone mentioned another forum for Stags / AR's - to you have a name / address?

    Stag builds a quality rifle and it usually is available at a price that makes it a true value. I've got one and it eats anything and is more accurate than I am.

    A friend of mine bought one recently and had a minor issue his sights. He called CS and informed them. After trying to fix the problem over the phone, they sent him a shipping label and an RA# so that he could send it back and have it fixed. Now the thing shoots straight as nails. I think they even sent him a couple of extras just to make up for the problems.

    Once in a while a lemon makes it out of the factory. It takes a top notch company to stand behind their product enough to realize that and be willing to make things right.
