Breaking: Stag Arms now official HERA USA partner offering the CQR stock

LAN World Inc. just released the news that Stag Arms will be an official HERA USA partner and is now offering the CQR stock, front grip and other HERA accessories. Stag Arms will be another place where you can purchase the HERA products.

Now bear in mind that any deliveries won’t be immediate. Stag Arms have prepared their web page with a lot of nice photos, but deliveries are expected within 6-8 weeks and we must all be aware that things may slip.

The front grip will be even further down the line, according to TFB’s information.

One nice thing with Stag Arms is that they offer left handed versions of their rifles.

 

Like most, I have no experience at all with the HERA CQR stock, but I have some rifle time with this hand guard, and it’s pretty nice to hold.

    The Ca compliant version is retarded looking.

    • Mattblum

      That seems to be the trend. If I’m still living in California by December 2017, my AR is going to become featureless. Bleah. I really want to get out of this stupid state.

      • Sunshine_Shooter

        Move. Just do it. The lower cost of living and the lower taxes of almost anywhere else in the nation will make the move break even within 12 months (probably). You really want to stick it to that state? Stop giving them your tax dollars. It’s not running away, it’s starving the enemy.

      • Tma

        imo that hera stag rifle looks pretty cool =)

      • Frank_in_Spokane

        “Bleah. I really want to get out of this stupid state.”

        Moved from Phoenix to Spokane 8 yrs ago (b/c of the weather, the populations of the 2 cities, and to be closer to family -/ not b/c of politics).

        Became good friends 2 yrs ago w/a couple who’d just fled SoCal b/c of the politics. They brought quite a tidy sum from selling their house, bought a real nice proppity up here.

        Just sayin’ …

  • valorius

    How on earth can a ‘featureless’ AR cost over $1000?

    • Dougscamo

      Maybe the same way as “Fat Free” milk costs more?…..

    • Joseph Goins

      Research and development of new items — like the stock — costs a lot money.

      • valorius

        They didn’t develop the stock, and the standalone cost for it is about $150ish. So no, that absolutely does not explain the price.

        • spycrab421

          *shrug* The convience of not having to put it together yourself?

    • Sunshine_Shooter

      Economies of scale. If you make 1,000 ‘featureless’ guns and 60,000 normal guns, you need to make a larger profit per ‘featureless’ gun to make the down time of switching manufacturing from normal to ‘featureless’ worth it.

      Also, this is a niche item, and niche items are always more expensive do to economies of scale, as listed above.

      Also, there is less competition for featureless guns as compared to normal guns. Less competition = more expensive.

    • 360_AD

      Capitalism. You might have heard of it before? Stag is a for-profit business, not a charity.

      Not that I agree with pricing… nor would I buy one.

      • valorius

        Capitalism means companies with overpriced products and services usually get to meet Mr. bankruptcy judge.

        • 360_AD

          LOL. Wrong. “Overpriced” is subjective and matter of opinion. No matter how overpriced you think any particular product is, someone else will think otherwise and buy it. Just look at the housing market.

          • valorius

            And how many people in the housing market got to talk to mr. bankruptcy judge? You just made my point for me.

    • Flounder

      Its CA compliant bs. It is not just the stock, which has two models the featureless being a touch more expensive. There has to be a funny “mag release” or “bullet button”, the flash hider has to be different, there cannot be a bayonet lug, and i’m probably forgetting something else.

      Although when I compare it to Stags other offerings they are only 100 more dollars. So I guess there is your answer. Your problem is with Stags pricing in general not this rifle. And I completely agree that that is stupid expensive and totally ignorant of the competition.

      • valorius

        I agree about Stag’s prices in general: One can build an entire AR kit for under $400-450 nowadays, and that’s one with ‘features’.

      • raz-0

        They also confuse MSRP to street price. Granted on a limited availability rifle, the difference between the two will be less than with higher volume SKUs, but it’ll probably cost somewhat less than the MSRP in reality.

      • Eric Jackson

        Featureless isn’t less parts, just different, and almost always more expensive parts. You’ve never needed a bullet button on a featureless rifle. The term featureless just means a rifle that can’t be classified as an assault weapon based on legislated features. It usually implies that the stock configuration of the rifle would be classified as an assault rifle. A featureless stock on an AR is similar in form and function to some fixed precision stocks made and are priced similarly. And yeah, it’s BS, but for people that have family, lives, jobs, etc., it’s what they have to deal with.

  • iowaclass

    M’kay…
    We can now make an AR rifle without a buffer tube.
    So why are we still making AR rifles with buffer tubes?
    Who still really, really wants an AR with a buffer tube?
    And who wants an AR with a buffer tube SO BADLY that they would rather have the above featured retard-special than a conventional sporter stock?

    Haters, please take a number, que up, and hit the “reply” button.
    3, 2, 1…

    • Buffer tubes have a number of advantages pertaining to the functioning and weight of the rifle. It’s possible to eliminate it, but not always desirable.

    • mrsatyre

      Please forgive my lamentable ignorance on this topic, but I’m intrigued. I thought only AKs and bullpups didn’t require traditional buffer tubes.

      • spycrab421

        I think it’s because of the action, something about direct impingement requires a buffer tube, while piston-actuated ones don’t. If I’m remembering correctly, anything that uses some sort of piston doesn’t need a buffer tube. Hence why the ARX-100, SCAR, and AR-18 can have folding stocks.

        • Uniform223

          “something about direct impingement requires a buffer tube, while piston-actuated ones don’t.”

          The HK416 and LWRC’s throws that notion out the window. From my understanding it really comes down to the overall design of the rifle.

          • Hanover Fist

            The HK416 is short stroke piston…as are most LRWC’s…

        • jamesone

          It is the overall design of the rifle nothing more.

      • jcitizen

        When you look at the AR-18, it does make you wonder, but then the bolt is telescopic, and the return spring is inside the bolt. Also it has a gas piston which changes the dynamics of movement in the system. So you have to change a lot to get rid of the recoil tube.

    • Ark

      Because cheap.

  • 1911Junkie

    Will this also work in DPMS-pattern .308 rifle?
    And are those CA-compliant plates removable (just in case I will be lucky enough to move from California to United States of America)?

    • Sunshine_Shooter

      Probably not removable, I can’t imagine that they would be compliant if they were easy converted into a ban item. If you move you could always dremel out the sections you don’t like, or just buy a normal stock since you’ll be living in a free state and you can do as you wish.

      • jamesone

        LAN world announced you can remove the plate. I assume it would require pulling the entire thing apart to do it.

      • Eric Jackson

        It’s a well known quirk with CA laws that you can have the combination of parts to commit a thousand felonies in 5 minutes but you’re perfectly legal as long as you don’t. It’s very similar to having an AR pistol and a standard AR in the safe. You could violate NFA laws in under a minute by swapping the uppers.

  • Stag Arms is in Connecticut. With their stupid anti-gun laws, including bans on many forms of the AR-15, adding the HERA CQR stock is a reasonable thing to serve Connecticut and other restrictive State’s customers. However, I would have liked to see them offer the fore grip as well.

    • Marcus D.

      Fore grips are banned in California if vertical. This may be the case in other ban states as well.

      • True, however, Connecticut bans magazines with more than 10 rounds, yet Stag still has 20 and 30 round magazines for sale for less restrictive States. It would seem they could offer the HERA fore grip for sale to States with less restrictive laws.

      • K-Gunner

        Not true. Vertical fore grips are okay in CA on rifles. On pistols? Different story.

  • Bob

    OK, Guys, I guess I’m the one that has to say it. STAG ARMS, do you really have to PIMP your rifles, just to sell them to the “banned states”? Must not be selling enough to the “FREE STATES” !

    Bob

    • spycrab421

      Gotta get into that market man, where others retreat, some see a business opportunity.

    • K-Gunner

      Hey, for those in banned states, any efforts to still make firearms available is appreciated. It’s not something Stag should be dogged for. Good for them to try to cater to those who are otherwise deprived by their Rulers.

  • MOUE

    Do you think they’ll release a version without that panel behind the pistol grip?

  • Garmanarnar

    I don’t get it. It needs a similarly styled front end to make it look like anything other than an abomination. Buy the PS90 you really want .

    • Marcus D.

      A PS90 has a thumbhole stock, and is prohibited under California law. One would have to close off the thumbhole to bring it into compliance. But even that would not do, as California has a “thing” for forward grips (the details of which I am not familiar with. It may only be vertical foregrips that are banned.)

  • Ark

    Arguably the least horrible option for denizens of the People’s Republic.

    • Marcus D.

      I’ve read the Monsterman Grip (which requires an A2 style stock) functions well also. these two stocks are legal because they prevent the shooter from wrapping his/her hand around a grip that extends below the action. The CalDOJ has acknowledged that the Monsterman complies with the “featureless” law. The Thordsen stock mimics a traditional rifle grip, even if it looks a bit odd. Of these three, only the Thordsen allow one to wrap the thumb around the grip (and without violating the law AFAIK).

    • Quasimofo

      I prefer the Ares/FightLite SCR approach, assuming that’s CA legal. At least you can get a proper grip and a rifle that looks like a rifle with the SCR. The main SCR drawbacks are the proprietary lower and carrier.

    It’s coming so prepare…..

    “We need to ban these assault rifles with the triangle thing that goes in”

  • Wait– Stag is still in business? I thought ATF kicked them off the edge of the screen over that whole “hundreds of unserialed lowers lying around even after being busted for it once already” thing.

    • Sunshine_Shooter

      They got bought out buy shareholders and added “LLC” or something to their name. They are technically a different company, they just have a very similar name, product, vendors, staff, machinery, etc.

  • disqus_PDmXLtTxJj

    Don’t obey the “law”. The constitution is infallible, any law that tries to undermine the constitution is in and of itself ILLEGAL. The only way to fight these laws is that when they come to arrest a single individual for a violation of these “laws” 300 more armed individuals show up and say” You have to get through us first.” Until we UNITE they will divide and conquer. Stand together or have your RIGHTS whittled away.
