The Stags with the performance upgrade are supposed to be milspec. Like you said, an upper receiver with M4 feed ramps would be milspec. Also:
M4 Feed Ramp Barrel Extension (USGI)
USGI 1/7 Twist Rates
USGI 5.56 NATO Chambers
Mil-Spec 11595E - Barrel Steel (CMV)
Chrome Lined Bore and Chamber
Manganese Phosphate Barrel Finish
HPT (High Pressure Test) Barrel and bolt
MPI (Magnetic Particle Inspected) Barrel and bolt, shot peened
milspec RE, H buffer
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together. You'll remember the quality of a gun long after you forget how much you paid for it.
