Got links to the rifles in question? And what goodies are you thinking about?

I don't have links I'm on my iPhone and I just mean tricked out with laser lights coffee maker lol just kidding
If I go with the stag I can have a eotech says my wife if I go for the ruger I cannot have the eotech
Ruger is a piston gun and the stag is a gas gun

Well just speaking in generalities the Stag with EoTech is a better buy than the piston Ruger (SR-556?) without.

A DI AR is just fine but look at other brands than just Stag. The Ruger is heavy and overpriced. Not saying it's a bad gun but you can get a lot more for your money elsewhere.

um I'd take a Colt over a Stag anyday of the year, about the same price too.

I will say tho that Stag's no hassle customer service is very nice.

Look at Colt, Bravo Company, Daniel Defence, Spike's......
