Hi, I was wondering if Stag Arms is a good, reputable brand. How well do stag and RRA uppers and lowers go together? I'm looking to build an M4gery. I can build a RRA rifle (upper and lower) for $685 or
a Rock River upper w/ a Stag Arms lower for 25 dollars less. What is your guys say?


ETA: Is www.eaglefirearms.net/ a good place to order?

They are both good. RRA has a tendency to be 'tight' and hard to fit together at first, so for only an extra $25 it would be just as easy to go RRA all the way...

Stag/CMT is top notch stuff but I would go all Stag or all RRA. $25 is nothing.

Stag has a pretty high rating around here,never heard bad about RRA either.

I have been very pleased with my Stag M4. I built the lower and put a Stag factory upper on it.
So far mine has been 100% reliable and prints nice tight groups to boot.

$25 almost fills up my gas tank!

My RRA/LMT wasn't a tight fit like I figured it would be. A tight fit isn't a problem anyway. It will loosen up eventually.

RRA and Stag are both great choices. Get one (or both) and you'll be happy.

Of course. Chris at Eagle will take care of you.

last I heard, STAG/CMT makes RRA's lowers.

Correct, CMT makes them and a few other name brands.

Stag is about as good as you will get. I have a RRA upper on a Stag Arms lower and it is a very solid fit. I got both the lower and upper from Eagle. They will treat you right.

Both RRA and Stag will serve you well. There are many dealers here that will do the same, serve you well!

How can I tell the site is Authentic?

Ordered a bunch of stuff from EagleFirearms, and they are fast on delivery and great customer service.

For an M4gery I would go with Stag, as you can get a complet chrome-lined upper with A.R.M.S 40 BUIS for $475 from Aim surplus. The Stag will come with an E.R. Shaw barrel that has the government proflie under the handgurads.

I went with the RRA myself because I did NOT want an M4 style upper, but wanted the mid-length gas system, which is not available from Stag.

I'd go with an RRA lower (including RRA 2-stage trigger) and Stag upper. If you like single stage triggers for some reason then go all stag.

I want a mid-length too.

This is VERY good advise.



www.eaglefirearms.net is a GREAT place to buy from.

Why mix and match if you don't have to. I own both (got my Stag stuff from www.eaglefirearms.net and my Rock River Arms stuff from Steve at www.adcofirearms.com). You can't go wrong with either.

I would think that RRA would have better resale.

That's either 4 wheels with a small tank, or a motorcycle with a very big one.

I've got a build on a Stag receiver, they are good stuff! I have had several transactions with Chris at Eagle Firearms, I am only 1 of many satisfied customers, he is a good guy to do business with.

Here's some of their feedback on the EE: www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=7&f=109&t=190307&page=5
