Stag 10 Rifles: More Information

    Back in January, I wrote about the new Stag 10 and 10S rifles that were introduced by Stag Arms. These guns are .308 Win/7.62×51 chambered rifles using the semi-automatic AR-style platform. Since that time, the company released additional information and specifications on the rifles. The following details are┬áthe most current information on the guns.

    Stag 10

    Available for sale now, the Stag 10 is a 9.4 pound rifle with an 18″ 4150 steel barrel. The barrel is chrome lined and has a 1:10″ twist. It uses button rifling. The handguard is a 15″ Diamondhead VRS-T model that has a slant cut nose.

    Both the upper and lower are forged 7075-T6 with a Type III hard coat anodized finish. The upper has a Picatinny rail flat top, and the gun does not ship with any sights. Around back, the company is building the gun with a Magpul Fixed Rifle Stock (FRS).

    Stag states the bolt carrier group is nitrided, and a standard carbine buffer and spring are used. The trigger is a non-adjustable single stage trigger with a pull weight of 5-8 pounds. The pistol grip is provided by Hogue and the 10 round magazine is a Magpul PMAG. The MSRP is $1,570.

    Stag 10S

    Stag Arms 10s

    As you might guess, this rifle is similar to the Stag 10 above. However, this model is built to be shorter and lighter for CQB-type shooting. The barrel is 16″ in length with the same characteristics as its longer brother. A 13.5″ Diamondhead hand guard is used. Total weight is 8.3 pounds.

    Instead of the FRS stock, Stag Arms uses a Magpul Adaptable Carbine/Storage (ACS) stock. The MSRP on this version is $1,615.
