The local gun shop just got a brand new 16" Stag Arms M4gery in, it's marked at $800, I might be able to get it cheaper, what do you guys think?

It's very nice, no wear on bolt or hammer or anything else, finish is perfect also, looks like no rounds have been fired. But you gotta wonder why someone would pawn a brand new rifle like that? Unless it was confiscated by police than sold or something.

Everything is inluded, carry handle and all. I can put 275 down and pay the rest in installments or whatever, so it sounds like one hell of a deal.


PS: They also have a brand new HK91 and a very new Ak47 for reasonable prices, I gotta start saving my money!

You can easily build one for less. Even if you have to use all Stag parts, it can still be done for less. See JKiser's ads in the lowers/complete weapons section of the EE. Building it is fun, and it costs about $730 w/all new Stag parts (and a lot les if you troll the EE used section for parts).

If you can get the one in the shop for less than $800, and it's chrome-lined, it wouldn't be a bad deal, however.

ETA- It should look like the below.

I know what a ARMS 40 is



It has a carry handle, which I kind of prefer, because flip-ups are pretty ugly when there is no optic to make use of it, and there is no optic in this weapon's future.

Save yourself the money and pass. The handguards are only single heatshield and will be very uncomforably hot just after 3-30round mags.

I had a STAG arms once and wasn't impressed, not impressed with RRA either (which is made by STAG).

I'd vote on staying away, and if you REALLY want an AR15 go with a Bushmaster M4A3 www.aimsurplus.com has them, or COLT 6920 www.knesekguns.com (will have a shipment in a month)

I meant the overall weapon, I figured you were aware of what it looked like, but most of us reading this board are visual.

Make sure that its a decent carry handle, and not one of the Chinese imports. It sounds like a decent price through a store if its new. If its not new, I would get the price down a bit if possible.


I can surely get it for cheaper, 50-100 cheaper.

The handle looks like the genuine stag arms carry handle it came with, they probably never even removed it.

I'll build my own eventualy, probably the 6.8 POF I have planned in the future

Thanks for the input guys.

By the way, what kind of camera do you use regularly Stick? I've always wondered, and I'm looking for a good professional camera at the moment.

How much do they want for the HK91?

I bought the same rifle he's talking about, and, like the picture above, it had double insulated handgaurds, which are great.

I got it over the BM from AimSurplus, as a matter of fact.

Olympus C-750 & Canon 20D.


ETA- The Canon is just out of service until I get the sensor cleaned.


Cool cool, would you recommend either of them?

I can talk the bastard down, easy

Wow, Yeah that 20D might be just a little out of my league.

Does Sony make decent cameras? I'm looking at the Sony Cyber-shot 7.2-Megapixel Digital Camera.

Well, since Stag is the commercial arm of CMT and CMT makes most of the RRA parts, yeah that's not too far off.

I have had great experience with Stag and RRA, I would not hesitate to buy another as long as they offer the configuration I want. (actually most of my guns are made out of RRA or Stag part or a combo thereof)

BTW, I just got a Stag M4 upper from Stickman (RainierArms.com). Very happy with the product and service.
