About 1 year ago I purchased this Stag AR-15 along with an assortment high capacity magazines. Planned as one of my main defensive weapons – I am very pleased with the fit and quality. I have taken it to the range on several occasions and found it to be accurate and very reliable with all magazines used.
I actually started buying AR magazines before I had the weapon. I did this for a couple of reasons. First – prices had started climbing due to the fear of a potential Democrat Congress/Democrat President combo. Second – my own fear that the weapons/magazine ban that occurred years ago would be reinstated at some point after the Presidential election should Obama win. So – I was bought several Magpul, Brownell’s, C-Product, and a few others. I also purchased and am maintaining approx 1,000 rounds of ammo.
I choose the flat top receiver as I intended to add a red-dot sight. So far – just open sights for me – red dot is planned. You may notice that it is a left-handed version, another reason I choose the Stag.
Upcoming I will be stocking up on additional .223 Rem ammo – attending several gun shows hoping to find some good deals. Prior to buying the Stag I gave it some serious thought as to the next firearm I wanted to add to my survival battery. Looked hard at some larger caliber weapons, but finally decided on the AR. Why you might ask?
- Availability of magazines
- Availability of accessories
- Ammunition is common and relatively inexpensive (although prices have increased over the last couple of years)
- It is a proven design (the modern AR)
- It’s effective range is within any distances I feel I would need it in
- and….to be honest the damn thing is just flat out sexy!
Maybe an AK will be next – but for now I have many other survival purchases that must take precedent before the Shumer hits the fan.
Take care all –
