I would like to choose a Stag 15 and I have several questions.

If I remove the carry handle from a Stag 15 Model 1 do I have a Model 2?

With a Model 1 can I still add free floating rails and a scope (if I remove the carry handle)?

Is the extra $$ for the 2 or 2T worth it or is it better to buy a basic model and customize it myself?

Get whatever you can afford. You can always mod it later.

I went with the 2HT because I thought the supplied BUIS and factory installed Free Float rail system was a good deal.

I think you'll pay more in the long run for BUIS, rail and installation if needed.

Have you looked into the model 3?

Have you thought about BCM? LMT? Since they all have ridiculous wait times anyways.

If you're quick and have money in hand you can score some NIB upper deals here on calguns or arf.com Equipment Exchange.

I picked up a brand new, never mounted Doublestar upper there last week.:thumbsup:

600 bucks shipped, pre-owned, never fired.

if you get a model 1H stag upper and remove the carry handle, you have a flat top upper, or a 2H

What is the difference between the 2HT and 2T?

The 2HT is "just the upper" designation and the 2T is the complete rifle. Other than that, they are the same upper.

vote 2t...
If you break it down by the accessories:
Arms 40L-100 bucks
FF rail system at least-150
BCG-150
you really just get the barrel, upper, front site and charging handle all assembled for only a couple hundred... Then the 6 month wait.
