Greater Hunting Options From Stag Arms

    An increasing number of companies are offering greater hunting choices, and Stag Arms is coming out with theirs just in time for some of the biggest seasons of the year. Stag Arms already has some nice guns for hunters and sport shooters alike, and now they’re making it even better. New from Stag Arms are what the company is referring to as their “ready-to-go hunting solutions”, rifles that are ready to hit the woods straight out of the box.

    Not only are these packages meant to be used right out of the box, they’re game-specific, or at least specific to the approximate size of game. The rifles being offered are good for medium-to-large game with platforms based on the company’s Stag 7 and their left-handed Stag 7L. The new versions are called the Stag 7S and Stag 7-LS, and each is being sold along with mounts and 3x-9x power optics.

    The president of Stag Arms, Mark Malkowski, sees these rifles as good for a large variety of game, saying the company wanted “to offer hunters the best solution for coyote to elk-sized game which is why our employees spent a lot of time at the range testing different scopes with our Stag 7 series hunting rifles. We found the Nikon Active Target 3x-9x scope to be the best tested scope with the rifle.”

    The rifles are chambered in 6.8 SPC, a round with military roots that’s gaining increasing popularity among hunters. The scope features Nikon’s active target reticle which utilizes an open circle design. Adjustments can be made at 1/4 MOA. Special tools are not necessary.

    Take a look at the rifle itself on Stag Arms’ site: MSRP for the hunting-ready Stag Arms 7S is $1280 while the Stag 7 LS is $1320. The new rifle-optics combos can be ordered through the company’s website at
