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 the 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.
