I'm not trying to turn this into a Stag bashing thread, but what problems if any have you had with your Stag AR-15? Online I see very few complaints about them and just want to see what kind of issues people may or may not be having as I don't personally know anyone who has any experience with them and honestly have never heard of them before.

Thanks.. Like i said I haven't heard anything bad about them but figured I could get the best opinions of their flaws on a stag forum. I don't know why they aren't popular around here.

only issue my model 1 had was with Wolf ammo...other than that it has been accurate and has run flawlessly. Even with the Wolf, it was only a couple rounds that it did not like.

I think the wolf ammo problem is the only thing I've ever heard. I read another post in another forum about wolf ammunition failing to eject properly. They said that they took the rifle back to stag and they said the ammunition wasn't causing enough pressure for it to eject properly but offered to adjust the rifle so it would cycle properly even with it.

The only "issue" I could say is that the take-down pin is so tight, I have to use a wooden dowel to punch it out. That should loosen up over time.
The whole rifle fits together nice & tight and I'm very happy with it.

Most of the complaining I've read has to do with the logo.

I have had a couple of minor issues:

1. no index pin in barrel, called Stag and fixed under warranty. I mailed to them on a tuesday fron central PA and they had back to me on Friday of the same week.

2. Damaged crown(that was what the warranty paper said) but I had that one back within two weeks during the November election craziness

They fixed the staking. They said the old staking machine bit the dust and the new one does proper staking

I HAD THE SAME ISSUE WITH MY MODEL 2, AND A GUY AT THE RANGE TOLD ME TO GO TO BROWNELLS WEBSITE AND BUY AN EXTRACTOR UPGRADE KIT WITH A LITTLE O-RING A BEEFIER SPRING AND BUFFER, SO I DID THAT AND IT CYCLES THE WOLF LIKE A CHAMP. IT END UP COSTING LIKE 12 BUCKS OR SO.

They have a new staking machine, and siad they replaced the old one because it died. And they also pointed out that they never had a problem with the staking the other machine did. Was never an issue.

I have about 1200 rounds through a model 2, only 1 FTF and that was with the original mag. Excellent rifle, absolutely no complaints.

Only problem I had with my 2L was that the barrel nut was not torqued. Stag paid shipping both ways and had the upper back to me in about 2 weeks.

Just bought a NIB 2T, even cut the tape on the shipping box. After looking at the rifle I unpacked the goodies that came with it including the magazine. The mag looked like anything but new, as if someone had kicked it across a cement floor a few times. The finish was scraped the length of the mag on all sides, intermittently down to bare metal. No way this mag can pass as 'new'. I contacted Stag (even sent pix) and was informed that the condition of the mag is normal!?!!
So I'm asking this forum if this is true. Does everyone receive a mag in rough condition?

See my post about 2 above this one. Yeah, the factory mag blows. I'm sure they save some pennies on the mag, figuring 99.9% of people will buy aftermarket.

Every gun I have bought has come with a cheap case and a less than stellar mag. Then again, I can't afford expensive guns

Yes, with any dry film finish it's going to be like that.

Would anyone happen to have pictures of the old staking vs. the new staking?
