I have two YHM Todd Jarret FF hand guards, they are top notch.

Another vote for a YHM. Have a 9635 DX and it's rock solid. Barrel nut, tube and jam nut mate up precisely, height is a spot on match to receiver rail, no gaps.

+1 for Rainer arms. Very lightweight. Very secsi.

If you are willing to change out the gas block to a low profile one, you can get a longer free floating tube.



But for a Stag model 3, the cheapest and fastest option would be to get a gas block height front sight, either fixed or folding, and put it on top of your gas block. Get a metal unit, MBUS's will melt.
