Ar 15 upper Questions

Shop near me has a Stag Arms 1H upper. I cant find any info on them( besides from there web site and one thread on m4carbine.net. What is the general consensus on buying one and how it performers and the company over all. I plan it use my gun for learning how a AR works and getting familiar with it. the next one will be more for home defense and tactical training (not all gun ho just a good course on using my AR better. Any help will be great.


and my lower is a NFA lw15 polymer lower.

Stag makes good stuff. Not super high end, but not super low end either.

It'll work for what you want to do.

Let me guess....they recommend LaRue, Daniel Defense, LMT, Noveske, etc? Anything else will blow and kill you?

Save your money if you are new to ARs. Build one to find out what YOU like/dislike, then change (or build a new one) as needed.

I have a Stag upper right now. I have about 3-400rds of *gasp* steel cased Wolf ammo through it with no malfunctions as well as ~80rds of Remington UMC during a 3 gun match, also with no malfunctions...

Sadly those types are the mainstay of gun forums in general...

My local board has a thread about 24k gold "dillos"

Fawk spikes right in the ear.


Anyway, depending on the price of that Stag upper, you could probably do a bit better with this one:

http://palmettostatearmory.com/index...ght-upper.html

Looks like $562.90 plus shipping for a complete upper with a chrome lined barrel and a midlength gas system.

I just went with this except it wasn't the lightweight. Seems fine so far.

You're lucky you didn't get banned. I've seen it happen on ARF.

In that case, the palmetto unit will be more durable in the long run, be a bit lighter, and the midlength gas system will be a little smoother in the recoil department.

Buuuut...

You don't get instant gratification.

I have a Spikes, Wilson, DPMS, and a Smith. Disassembled, I couldn't tell you the difference between them.

Yep, other than the Equipment Exchange and specific links posted here, I've never read a single thread on ARFCOM...

go to ar15sales.com
cheap stag products,
I received mine in under 2 weeks.
my first one was a flat top stag flat top 3h
after 4000 rounds I sold it and got a stag 1h

neither liked steel cased tulammo.
about one aou of 100 would stay in the chamber.

but both worked flawlessly wih brass.

I really like stag products, low price but great quality products
nothing fancy but super reliable
