Neither would be my first choice but of your two, Stag.

Thanks for your input Quentin. Why do you like Stag over RR, and just out of curiosity, which would be your first choice? (if it's a really high end ar, I'm not sure that I can afford it lol!)

let me answer that for him...BCM

I went with a BCM complete upper and put together a Spikes Lower...the cost, well depending on what model RRA or Stag you are looking for it came out to about the same price. when what you are already buying is close to a grand already whats another couple hundred bucks?

For the money you're going to spend on those two you can get a higher quality AR like a BCM. Nothing horribly wrong with the two you mentioned but the BCM is in another class.

I dont see how you could ever go wrong with a Stag, mine has been great. It all boils down to personal preference. Ive heard from alot of happy Stag owners and happy BCM, DD, PSA and Spikes owners too. If a Stag is what you want then you will be happy with it

Couldn't say it any better than Flat. I went with a Daniel Defense upper on a S&W lower but only because I hit a great sale on DD. Normally BCM is in the price range of RRA and Stag and worth adding to your short list. You might look at S&W and PSA if you want to hold the price down. No reason not to include more brands than just your original two.

Nope, although it would be nice to work with a company that has such a stellar reputation from the bottom to the top with everyone from the hobby shooter to the professional and even amongst industry types. The same foes for Magpul Ind.

Are you working for UTG?

By the way, the Colt 6920 would be among my first choices:
