New from Stag Arms: Stag 15 Tactical Rifle

Jon Wayne Taylor’s recent review of the Smith & Wesson M&P15T  highlighted the commoditization of the AR market. Modern sporting rifles all seem much of a muchness. And yet there are good AR’s and there are great ARs. I reckon Stag Arms makes great all-American ARs. Which isn’t enough — in and of itself — to move the metal in the current, price-sensitive market. Which is why Stag is offering 20 percent off complete rifles, introducing the Stag 15 Tactical at just $729.99. Press release below . . .

Stag Arms continues to modernize its line of AR15 rifles with the all-new Stag 15 Tactical Rifle. Stag Arms, manufacturer of the world’s first left-handed MSR, has introduced the Stag 15 Tactical Rifle as an updated version to the successful Model 3T and 3TM.

The new Stag 15 Tactical is currently available in both left and right-hand models. The rifle features a new AR-15 free floated handguard designed by Stag Arms, the Stag 15 13.5” M-LOK SL (Slimline). This handguard features an ultra-slim profile to increase ergonomics, along with quick detach points at 3, 6, and 9. The attachment system utilizes the widely popular M-LOK system.

The new Stag 15 Tactical Rifle will be offered with a suggested retail price of $969.99 for the right-handed model, and $1,019.99 for the left-handed model. Stag Arms is currently running an introductory promotion on them starting at $729.99.

    Is the promotion price the dealer cost or MSRP for the promotion price version?

    Wonder how the tactical rifle kit will compare, price and performance, to the PSA kit (which has sights) for $420+$10 sling plate.

  2. avatar jwtaylor says:

    Stag’s AR10 was a good gun at a good price. They’ve always been good guns, and the company has a great track record. Solid buy here.

    1. avatar Mike Oregon says:

      I took delivery of a Stag model 10L in 6.5 Creedmoor, 22″ Bbl. I’ve only been to the range twice and I’m still learning how to use the psr , but I’ve got 2″ groups at 300 yards, and I know that the rifle is capable of much better, I’m just not comfortable or stable on the gun yet.

  3. avatar Jeff O. says:

    With all this AR stuff lately, I’d love to see a cheap AR kit shoot out. Find the cheapest build kits possible, like those $299 –
    $350 complete, minus lower kits (then find a cheap lower) assemble them, and pit them against each other.

    Seems like you could get 5 or 6 good articles out of it.

    1. avatar JTPhilly says:

      +1

      This would be interesting. Think you could find a lot of value in something like that.

    2. avatar Nanashi says:

      I’d up it to 360 to include the non-freefloated PSA kit. Should have a “standard” AR15 to compare it to too in the interest of good testing policy. Otherwise seems like a great idea for an article.

      1. avatar Jeff O. says:

        Yeah a run-of-the-mill factory AR as the control.

        1. avatar Geoff PR says:

          Then the problem becomes, what factory for the benchmark?

        2. avatar Nanashi says:

          M&P15 Sport II is supposed to be the best selling complete rifle in the US from what I can find, and goes for ~$450. Ruger’s AR-556 is a runner up and would be fine too.

        3. avatar Jeff O. says:

          S&W M&P15 Sport II, Ruger AR556, Bushmaster Quick Response Carbine.

          Any of those in that street price $550 – $620 range. They’d make a cheap factory made control rifle.

          So what do you gain or lose by rolling your own? Let’s say you also had to buy a $30 AR wrench, so how does that $350 – $400 assembly required rifle compare to the factory new rifle for $200 more.

          What else could one get for that ~$200 that might make an assembled rifle better than the cheapest factory rifle?

    3. avatar JTPhilly says:

      Or maybe a contest among the TTAG staff to build the “best” rifle with a budget of $400-$500. Do a review on each rifle build, and then maybe a couple of “shootout” articles to determine the winner.

      1. avatar Jeff O. says:

        All of these are great ideas.

    4. avatar Accur81 says:

      I can tell you from personal experience that Pslmetto State Armory AR-15 uppers and lowers run just fine. I’ve had more than a dozen upper/ lower combos running 5.56, 6.8 SPC, and .300 BLK.

      The biggest issue I’ve had was one upper that required 3 dissassemblies and cleanings before it would run reliably. After that it ran 300 rounds straight of AE. 223 / 5.56 and even Wolf .223 without a hiccup.

      The PA-10 .308 uppers can have problems, though. I just had a two stage spring assembly put into the extractor of my bolt, and an adjustable gas block currently set to about .080 or .082″. Hopefully everything is sorted out on that.

    YAAR. Yet another AR.

  5. avatar Ralph says:

    It wasn’t that long ago that Stag was shut down by the jackbooted thugs of the ATF. It’s good to see the company rebound (under new leadership).

    4140 and no melonite treatment?

  7. avatar Timothy V Noecker says:

    Nothing Wrong With Buying/Assymbling/Purchasing a Sub$600 AR-15, Heck I Might Even Consider One Down The Road, But For My First AR-15 I Plan On Purchasing Soon I’m Going With The $1350 Smith&Wesson M&P Performance Center 18″ 5.56, a $500 Leupold Patrol VXR 3-9x40mm Scope, and Various 62gr and 77gr Ammo – I Figure It’s Expensive But It’s An Item I’ll Pretty Much Aren’t Going To Part With Anytime Soon Either…
