You got it all wrong. The conservatives want you to have all of your gun rights. The liberals are the ones that don't want you to have guns....

If you built an assault rifle you would be pissing off the Feds. They don't like unregistered full autos.

Besides its the libtards that generally don't like your 2A rights.

Actually, Stag is on my list of parts to consider. What kind of trouble?

A broken one. One that's not in the caliber you intend to shoot.

I get a double feed every 20 rounds, like clockwork. Once I even got a double feed with a round stuck above the bolt. I couldn't clear the jam with tools I had at the range; I had to go home and use large pliers and a hammer to pull the rounds out and free the bolt.

I did some internet research and this is pretty common among the Stag lefty carbines. It has to do with the lefty bolt that wasn't perfected. I built it back when complete rifles weren't available yet. So, sucks to be me, since I don't get that famous Stag rifle lifetime warranty. I'm not a range rat (I'm more into C&R) so it took me a few years to find the problem and its origin.

What gets me is you'd think that Stag would take a dozen lefty carbines and run a few thousand rounds through them. Apparently, this wasn't part of their quality control process.

I have a blackthorne upper and it shoots fine. Must of gotten one built on a good day I guess. I have another one one I got on trade from a buddy BNIB and I haven't shot it but it looks fine also.
I don't know much about AR uppers but supposedly Blackthorne is bad. I haven't had any problems with mine so i cant give it a negative rating.

so it was a stag parts and not complete pre-headspaced upper that you bought then???
we that build are own are responsible for all the manufacturing defects,that is why i bought a complete upper pre-headspaced and warrantied ,not to rag on your build or anything.

a blackthorne is mix-matched parts and the company changes name s alot too,not real stable if you must change your name alot...

Just an FYI, to clear that type of jam, one must pull the charging handle while driving the butt of the rifle into the deck. That will clear it, just be aware of the muzzle.

Oh, it was a complete upper (test fired and zeroed at the factory). The rest of the gun was all from Stag parts too.

There's a reason why Stags are among the least expensive ARs out there.
