Default Just bought new AR... new to this need input

Hello all. I am new to this and thought I would ask for some input. I just ordered my Stag Arms Ar-15 1L. Yes a left handed one. Any suggestions on this rifle. Has anyone had any dealings with it. And preferences on MODS to do to it. Please let me know. Your knowledge is like gold to me. Thanks

Get some ammo and give us a range report , every single gun will vary a little bit , I might suggest buying a couple boxes of brass and a couple boxes of steel cased ammo to see if it will shoot what ever you put in it .

Don't go slapping a bunch of CAA, Mako, UTG or whatever lights, lasers, grip pods and all that other junk that everyone is doing. "Tricking Out" "Modding" w/o knowing what you need in order to shoot better is pointless as is slapping on as much cheap **** as possible because some other idiot did it as well because it looks cool. Well it doesn't.

Until you're sure it works fine, making changes is the last thing you should do. Shoot lots of ammo, give her a good shakeout and zero. Ammo and good mags, that's what you want now.

These UTG Rail Guards are the best I have found, they fit tightly and being rubber protect much better then hard plastic guards. They are in small sections so you can really fit them in where needed. Cost $12.95US.
Just because they don't cost like a set of Wilson Combat rail covers at around $100 US does not mean there not quality.
I have my UTG rail guards on my $2,900 FNSCAR 16s.

I'm not going to try and explain it as it's obvious there is a disconnect somewhere.

I will say money has nothing to do w/ it.

Man, I too have the UTG covers, and the fact that they are in small sections is the ONLY reason I bought them. One of the ranges I belong to requires you to have your rifle "rested", and they made it easy to install/uninstall a bipod since that's the only time I use one. Since Troy and others now have "small" covers readily available, I'm in the process of converting.

The UTG's come off EASILY, and if I were doing something besides range/plinking stuff I wouldn't own them. People who actually engage in HARD USE with their weapons, don't like them for good reason.

You don't have to come anywhere NEAR $100 to get quality rail covers.
