    Need opinion on modified Stag please

    what do you all think of this rifle? He didn't give me a price yet, my brother sent me the info and is thinking of buying it. I told him I would post here to see what you all thought. Here is the info:


    16" STAG upper Chrome lined barrel, and double star Lower. Upper receiver has new Troy forearm, New Yankee Hills front flip sight, Arms 40L rear site. Scope is a Millet 30mm red dot. Rings are Arms 22H. Lower has a new trigger spring kit, and a Magpul trigger guard. Also an Ergo Grip, Gas Buster Charging handle, M-4 OD Green stock, and CAA Cheek rise. ADAMS ARMS gas piston conversion installed. Value is $499.00 on the conversion kit alone. I still have all of the parts after the gun was converted to a piston upper.

    Nice looking rig. Probably worth double the base price with all the extras.

    I am not good at estimating but if I could get that unit for under $1400 I would probably be happy.

    Stag and double star are decent brands. I don't know about the piston conversions . I would guess , with the extras the gun may be worth around 1200-$1500 on today's market.
    Does it run well? Can you try it for a range trip first , before purchasing? Mixed brand franken guns seem to have more issues that off the shelf model ,IMO.

    Your brother is looking at a $2000 rifle. Regardless of what all it's equipped with, it's still a dressed up frankengun by an unknown builder. Someone sunk a lot of money into a budget-gun, which makes me think this was a project gun that the seller is finally done with. This is my way of saying "buyer beware".

    I'm not as concerned about it being a franken gun, in my experience the franken guns that fail are the ones assembled by the end user - we're not talking about putting an upper on a lower, we're talking about the guys that buy a barrel, stripped upper, stripped lower, all the attendant parts and put it together themselves, often for the first time. Those are the guns with high failure rates in my personal experience.

    I would have liked this gun more if the piston conversion hadn't been done. Up until that point it was a factory upper on a presumably factory lower.

    I'm not a fan of that scope, I'd probably tell the seller to keep it.
