Default Rock River or Stag Arms?

I'm thinking about purchasing one of these two rifles. I had a bushmaster several years ago and I want to get another ar15. Can you people give me your thoughts, preferences, and pros & cons on Stag Arm and Rock River rifles. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I don't think you could go wrong with either one

Ive had both brands, my first AR was an RRA and i now have a Stag model 2. The RRA was a good rifle and i dont remember ever having a malfunction. I love my Stag, its also been a 100% shooter

When I was researching which AR to get, both Stag and Rock River were on my list. I ultimately decided to go with Rock River because of their reputation for accuracy. I have not been disappointed, the quality of the RRA stuff has been first notch and the performance of the gun has been excellent. In either case, you will be happy with your choice as they both build great AR's.

I think you should get the stag but I think you might like the DPMS model.

Intended use?

Expected ranges?

With what ammo?

Thanks for your response AgentTiki. To answer your question, I would basically have it for casual use (although when I did fire it, I would definitely go through several hundred rounds) I would use it mostly when I go up into northern Michigan. I just plink and target shoot up to no more than 100 yards. As far as the ammo, I would probably just use 55 grain. I really don't like using steel case ammo either.
