    Questions about the stag arms model 3 with plus package.

    Questions on the Stag Arms Model 3 with the plus package
    I have some questions on Stag Arms model 3 rifle with the plus package. I am set on getting this rifle but need to know a little more about it from those of you that have it. I have the following questions about the model 3:
    1. How accurate is it?

    2. How reliable is it?

    3. What are the rails that go to the diamondhead v-rs handguards made of, polymer or aluminum?

    4. Can any rail be used with the v-rs handguards?

    5. Any magpul magazine compatability issues?

    Any help is appreciated.

    I could think of many other ways to spend money. Colt, BCM, DD, Spike's, even a PSA. Please do some more research!

    I've done plenty of research and looked at all company's I could find, and the stag arms model 3 is the only rifle of that type within my price range. The requirements that I have for an AR15 are:

    1. Complete flat top, with no front sight post.

    2. Mil-spec.

    3. 1/7 barrel twist.

    4. Under $1,100.

    5. Has to be 5.56 caliber, not .223.

    6. 16" barrel max, 14" barrel min.


    The stag arms rifle is the only rifle that, once you buy the plus package, fits all of these requirements. If there is another rifle that fits these, please let me know. I was originally going to buy the DPMS Oracle for $709, but it only has a 1/9 barrel twist and after handling one at a local sporting goods store, I found I didn't like the looks or the feel of the rifle. I'm also not willing to build an AR15, so please don't suggest that. Maybe in the future but not right now. I also do not want a bushmaster rifle.

    How about a sp6920 colt for that price? Meets all your requirements except the front sight post. Oh yeah, its mil spec everything.$990 from g and r tactical. Is the stag really mil spec? As in properly staked gas key, carpenter 158 shot peened full auto bolt, true 5.56 spec chamber mil spec? Or is it just mil spec?

    You can really do so much better for that much money. Step back, read some more (here) and you will be able to make an informed decision that you won't regret later. The afformentioned Colt recommendation is really one of the best options/deals right now and should be highly considered. My only recommendation against getting the Colt is to get a midlength which is just my personal preference. BCM, DD, and LMT would be those other options you won't regret.

    I had though about that one, but the front sight post was the deal killer. My main problem that I have with the front sight post is that I'm going to be using an Eotech Xps2-0 and the front sight post is in the way. Yes I know that you can train yourself to ignore the front sight post but I prefer to have an uncluttered view of the target. Thanks for the idea though.

    How about the Colt SP 6940? Would this rifle suit my requirements? ( I can find it for about 1280 so that isn't too much more than I was willing to spend.

    This is the link to the rifle I am talking about. Is this rifle 5.56 or .223? The specs say .223 Rem(5.56x45 NATO). Does that mean it will shoot either round equally well?
