Stag Arms’s newest AR-15 is the piston operated Model 8 carbine.
Stag have not released much information about the rifle. It looks much the same as their M4-style Model 3 carbine. I am not sure if the piston system is their own design (if you can identify, please do in the comments). It looks like it could be a long-stroke design, but I am not sure. UPDATE: See below.
|Upper||Forged and Mil Spec|
|Operating System||Short Stroke Piston|
|Sights||Midwest Industries Front & Rear Flip Sight|
|Barrel||16″ Chrome Lined 1/9 Twist|
|Stock||6 Position Collapsible|
|MSRP (Price)||$1,145 (standard model) and $1,175 (Model 8L left handed)|
|Availability||December this year.|
Lefties will be pleased to see that a left-handed model will be available.
UPDATE: David from Stag told me that it is a short-stroke piston that Stag Arms designed.
