I will be purchasing a complete STAG AR-15 sometime within the next few weeks.....this will be my first rifle and i am excited....any suggestions on which model i should get....i'm thinking about getting model 1 but if i decide to get a scope wouldn't model 2 be more convenient? also i know putting it together myself would be cheaper but i would rather spend an extra few dollars and not have a head ache...plus isnt there a lifetime warranty if it is a complete purchase....thanks alot guys! BTW....its 1:40am and the past week or 2 i haven't been able to sleep because its all i think about before i go to bed haha

I have the Model 2HT upper. Its pretty awesome, but I built it from a stripped lower, and attached the upper.

I would get a version without the carry handle. It'll be a tad cheaper, and you can have rear-flip up sights with model 2 and have a red-dot optic on there as well. If you don't mind the A2 front sight post/gas block, and have no use for an accessory rail, then I would go with Model 2. If you want a full free-float rail I'd go with the 2HT, which also includes a low-profile ARMS 40L flip-up rear sight..

The model one or two isnt going to matter much since the model 1 has a removable carry handle. If you were going to mount an aimpoint or eotech i would say get the mod 2 because you can cowitness the iron sites with the dot sight. Ive never heard of the lifetime warranty but you might be right.If you are in the Inland Empire ( Temecula, Murrieta, Riverside area) i know of a person who does cheap transfers. Of course the rifle is going to have to be cali compliant before it enters the state so you will need to work that out. Now get some sleep man! :)

Go with the model 1. It has the removable carrying handle if you decide to mount optics. As far as the lifetime warranty goes, all stag products have a lifetime warranty, whether you build it or not.

Oh and I would hurry up faster than 2 weeks, if Obama wins, there's going to be a lot of fear mongering going on, and people are going to buy buy buy, and dealers are going to jack up prices.

To the OP, building a lower is EASY!!! Don't be intimidated by it. I just built my first one last week. Took me all of 40 minutes and regular tools I had in my tool box. Find the video on how to build it and print out the ar15.com build guide as well and have fun getting to know your firearm!

Here's my advice as newb: Go find a local shop that has OLL's in stock and get the DROS going. While you're waiting for the 10 days to click by, head over to ar15sales.com (Legal Transfers) and get in on the Stag 1 kit Pete is offering. Best deal going for a Stag right now. ($599 for the complete kit minus the lower you need to get at your local shop.) I went with the 2HT as I plan on putting some type of optic on it in the future.

Save the money you'd pay in extra taxes to buy ammo, cleaning kit, case etc. that you will need to enjoy your new toy.

I have two Stags, one model 3 and one Stag lower with a DPMS bull barrel upper. My first Stag was the model 3 as I wanted to do my own thing with optics. Having a flat top makes all this possible. I played several set ups. First I went with iron flip up sights, then went with a EOTech 512, currently I have it topped off with a BSA Sweet 223 3x9x40mm scope. It really depends of course what the OP wants to do with his. I really prefer the option of being able to switch things around should I prefer. Go from scope to iron sights or holographic / red dot and back in any given order. It's all about having fun and enjoying what you do with your rifle. Just my 2 cents.

Building your own lower is a valuable experience into how the rifle works. It will take you less than a couple hours.

I'm not a big fan of Stag, but the 2HT represents one of the best values.

He'll even put the lower together for you at no charge.
This is the best kit deal out there right now.

Check out Lanworldinc.com Chris is a great guy to work with. His price is around $880.00. All you have to do is have him ship it to your local FFL.

Whatever you get, I'd go through Chris at LANWorld Inc. He's great.

I bought a Stag 6 because I wanted a precision AR setup and it does all it says it will. 0.5 MOA or better. The 2-stage target trigger is a particularly nice touch. I bought a CMMG 16" flat top upper to put on it for two-legged predators and it's really nice too.

Smith and Wesson's M&P AR's are a great value as well. Don't forget about those. They have all the AR nerd features of a Noveske or LMT and much less expensive.

Cut him some slack, he's new... We all know what he's talking about. All you got to do is read the thread.... Sometimes we wonder why we drive people away.....

I second drifts1's suggestion of evil-black-rifles.com. Total price of kit plus Stag stripped lower receiver and free lower assembly with bullet button is $640 (no rear sight), with no sales tax and free shipping. Beats $880 plus sales tax (approx. $70) for Lanworldinc's deal. Transfer fees and DROS would be the same for both deals, so that's around $310 in savings. That's almost enough to buy two more stripped receivers including transfer fees!

Wait, what? S&Ws are just as expensive as an LMT.

Besides, neither sell mid-lengths (go BCM for that).

well there is this place in Santa Ana that i am going to go to called "J and J Armory" and he is going to piece my weapon for me.....im gunna do a stag 2ht upper and a stag lower reciever .....and i was wondering what kind of parts kit would you guys recommend CMMG or stag parts kit? and also which would you rather choose and why a bullet button or a prince 50 - i belive thats what they are call them.....let me know what you guys think and if i should add or change anything thanks!

Well, if you're going to go with a Stag upper and lower, might as well keep it all consistent and go with the Stag lower parts kit. The likelihood of a better fit is higher, though they are all MILSPEC anyway. There are proponents of both brands; personally, I would be happy with either one.

Check out the Magpul MOE or CTR upgrades, especially the Enhanced Trigger Guard. And throw an ambi safety selector in there--though you probably won't ever shoot it with the other hand, there might be that one time you need it.

Go with the bullet button it is much better than top loading. If you have pre ban mags go featureless and get a Monster Man grip. Trust me bullet buttons kick arse over the Prince 50.

I went with a model 3, its the cheapest, I already had an optic, and didnt want any iron sights.
