When I got my Stag upper in the mail today, i noticed that teh barrel stamp had an inscription stating that it was a 1/7 barrel as opposed to the 1/9 barrels stag usually produces. additionally, the barrel was also stamped "MP" instead of "MPC" or "C MP" like ive seen on most other chrome lined barrels. My question is: did stag make non-chrome lined barrels in 1/7

Excellent question that should be asked of who you bought it from. If it was from me, I have no clue and would have to ask Stag. I too thought they were all 1/9 barrels. Maybe the new 2HT is 1/7.

Stag did make a 1/7 barrel for their limited edition M4 upper with M4 feedramps and 14.5 barrel with permanently attached Phantom. All of their barrels were chrome lined though, and the limited edition uppers are long gone.

the Model 5H Upper is not chrome lined. But it isn't 1/7, it is 1/10.

The "MP" means its finish is magnesium phosphate, IIRC.

The MP means Magnetic Particle tested for flaws.

Stag Arms does sell 1/7 barreled uppers, but they are special order only, they also did a limited run M4 with 1/7 a while back.

So, WHERE did you order yours? I love STAG.... but I wasn't able to find the 14.5" 1/7 Chrome-lined STAG spec edition...

It seemed like you do have a STAG 1/7 barrel. Is it a 16" or is it a 14.5"?
I WANT what you've got.... please let me know where did you order that... PM me! Thanks.

BTW, a STAG upper that i used to have, 16" 1/9 chrome-lined:

Also, I think "C MP" is marking for Colt's barrel.... NOT chrome-lined

To my understanding, Technical Ted is right. "The MP means Magnetic Particle tested for flaws."

I stand corrected! Somewhere in my brain the magnesium phosphate finish and the "MP" barrel marking got melded together for no good reason. Thanks, Technical Ted!

Magnetic Particle inspection, not a chrome bore.

lol..... call up Stag....

What's the length of the barrel? The ONLY generally known 1/7s are 14.5".

If it is a 16" 1/7... then it must be from some special orders.... you may want to call up Stag for more info.

The length question hasn't been answered in the previous posting of this thread.... so....

Taking a picture of the flash-hider can also help.

You can try to EMAIL stag.... lol
