Stag Arms has updated their entire AR rifles line, including new left-handed models. They’ve also added the .224 Valkyrie offering seen above. More information follows, and TTAG will get its hands on a couple T&E models post haste.

Stag Arms to Showcase Updated Rifle Lines and Stag 15 Valkyrie for SHOT

Built on the popular Stag 15 AR platform, Stag Arms has updated their entire AR15 series including rifles, uppers and rifle kits in both right and left-handed models.

New Britain, CT.  – Stag Arms, LLC, will introduce its refreshed Stag 15 rifle series at the 40th annual SHOT Show in Las Vegas, NV. With more than 10 all-new right and left-handed series of rifles, upper halves and rifle kits.

The focus of the new Stag 15 series is the company’s newest handguard, the Stag 15 M-LOK SL, featuring a slimline, lightweight profile that offers increased ergonomics, maximum airflow, and modularity while continuing to provide the utmost strength and durability.

The new Stag 15 series, along with its latest addition, the Stag 15 Valkyrie, will make its debut at the Stag Arms Booth 20349.

About Stag Arms

Stag Arms was founded in May 2003 with the goal of producing reliable, 100 percent American made Modern Sporting Rifles (MSR). The Company quickly became a market leader and one of the largest MSR manufactures in the United States. Since its early days, Stag has remained at the forefront of innovation, first by offering both left and right-handed MSR platforms, and by designing new models and features based on customer recommendations. All of Stag’s rifles come with an industry leading lifetime transferable warranty and an infinite shot guarantee on the barrel.

  1. Okay.
    We asked a minute ago why I don’t have a Tavor: Stag is a good reason why. I’m left handed and this is much more affordable than the Tavor.
    Still need to take care of a few things before a Stag can find it’s way into my safe… if someone comes up with a truly ambidextrous MSR that doesn’t cost me over $1600 so I can share it with the wifey, I may forgo the Stag altogether and buy it instead.

    • I am left handed also and find it easier to just adapt to right handed firearms. That way you can also increase your weapon familiarity skill level.

      • I’m left-handed as well and Stag Arms is one of the few companies that makes a left hand eject AR. And it isn’t much more expensive than the right hand.

    • Mentioned it to someone else: my friend just picked up a Beretta ARX-100 for $900. Doesn’t get much easier switching between left and right than that gun!

  2. I own two Stag left handed AR’s Have had them for a number of years and both are great guns. My favorite being a varmite rifle with a 24” barrel with 1/2” moa guarante and lifetime barrel warranty. I’ve often heard that Stag makes 2nd class firearms. Mine have always been great working only problem I’ve had was with mags not the firearms. I’m planning on purchasing a 24” 224 Valkyrie barrel and associated parts and trying the 224 Valkyrie.
