Everyone,

I am looking at purchasing another upper. I have a Stag 2T and am very happy with it. I was looking at the Stag Model 2 but then I see the RifleGear 16" carbine for $599. It would appear that the RifleGear upper is far superior and is only about $70 more. I have spare BUIS, so that isn't going to be a problem.

What is everyone's recommendations? I don't see many people post with the RifleGear upper?

Thanks!

Chad

I bought a complete Stag 2T as well, but I asked for the same gas block that’s seen on the model 3 at no charge.

I like a little variety and I’m not brand loyal so I’d say check get a different brand. If I were to get something else I would buy a mid-length on a 16” barrel instead of a carbine since you already have the 2T.

I too have had excellent functionality with my Stag upper. No complaints.

Thats just an upper with BCG, charging handle and handguards, correct? If so, I wouldnt hesitate to look at BCM's uppers, especially with their sale. If not, RG>Stag.

Where does RG get their gear? Are these Wilson barrels? CMMG Uppers? I have never found out who supplies gear to RG.

I know who supplies Stag...Stags parent company CMT. (Father owns CMT, Son owns Stag.)

Why not build something "funner" -

I bought my complete 6.8 upper from Riflegear for only $525...

I read once where the rifle gear uppers usd Daniel Defense parts. Not sure what parts those would be but the rg site lists chf barrels that are HPT/MPI and bolts that are also MPI/HPT. Very impressive specs at that price.

Between the two, Riflegear for sure. But like everyone else is saying, can't really go wrong with a BCM.

Riflegear for sure. Their upper will adorn my next build.

Looks to me like riflegear it will be! It appears to be a better deal than bcm and is the hammer forged barrel which would make the equivalent bcm more. I'll let everyone know how it turns out and post after I get it!

I already have an a2 and really don't want to go 6.8...that's what my bolt rifles are for!

the Rifle gear one is great
i got one for my wife's ar, 14.5" with the flash hider. she loves it
a lot of fun and the weight is good! no complaints, and if there happens to be any problems, no worries w/ rifle gear (and just down the freeway)
would definitely buy one again.

The RifleGear it will be!

I am in the central valley and get up to Cordova occasionally as well if anyone would like to try it out once I get it. Probably order it in the next week!

Thanks everyone for the feedback and recommendations!

I heard from RG once that they sourced Daniel Defense for their uppers. You can call them to confirm, they are straight forward with that.

Where does RG get their gear? Are these Wilson barrels? CMMG Uppers? I have never found out who supplies gear to RG.

I know who supplies Stag...Stags parent company CMT. (Father owns CMT, Son owns Stag.)

RG did the build for me. cost some extra duckets but it was worth it.


RG 14.5 Pinned w/ vortex
DD 12.0 FSP rail
BCM F/A BCG

Pure win on this upper!

Riflegear uppers are mfg'd by DD. Upper reciever, bcg, barrel, etc are DD mfgd and then DD puts the riflegear logo on for them.

Riflegear upper over Stag any day.

Riflegear uppers are just re-named Daniel Defence FYI, which is a great company. They have better specs then the stag. But both will be good uppers though. I have a stag and it has ran flawless for thousands of rounds of low cost wolf, and thousands of federal.

Ide get the riflegear though due to the better specs since price is similar. One thing that stag is good at, depending on the model you can get a BUIS and a free float rail for no extra costs

BCM is also top quality, and they are having a sale on their uppers right now.

You'll be happy with both. But I would go with Riflegear.
