The folks on FTF that have Stag ARs seem to like them. Left hand options for ARs are much more limited than for us righties.

Just do your homework so you know you're getting a good deal.

I have checked Youtube and read an article in guns and ammo about stag arms and have not really heard anything negative about them

Stag Arms makes great guns. A friend has one and likes his very much. As far as scopes go, what are you planning on doing with it? Clearing houses? or Long range shooting? I had an Eotech 512, but sold it immediately once I went out and used it. I am used to old fashion scopes, and the eotech just didnt reach out there and the red dot covered up the coke cans I was shooting at. keep reading and learn what you are planning on using the gun for. Eotechs are great for home defence, etc, but not for my use.

(And guys, dont say i should have gotten a magnifier what? and make the red dot on small targets even larger at far distances?)

Doh!

And here is now where I insert my own photo of my longer range set-up:

Can't go wrong with a Stag. One of the best manufacturers on the market. Hands down!

I wouldnt get too anxious to buy a lefty , you can shoot a righty left handed just fine , just get a ambidextrous safety and charging handle . My buddy is a lefty , owns a lefty and righty and says the lefty wasnt worth the extra $200 he had to pay for it , both his are stags and they are great rifles . Lots of leftys out there using right handed rifles without any issues . JMHO
