Another flawless range trip.

Came home and transfered the firearms from their cases straight to the safe like every other trip.
What kind of conversion did you do ok the draco? I think one with a full butt stock would be pretty cool.

I have a Stag Arms Model 2 carbine and it has been flawless. I just passed 3000 rounds on it and no issues. I always feed it brass ammo never used steel cased ammo in it.

Default Stag 15 ejection prob reply

bought one few days ago, a4 style. cleaned and oiled it. every single shell would stick in the barrel without ejecting



I just purchased one as well, took factory grease off, oiled and cleaned it. Same problem, the bolt will not go back far enough to eject the shell or pick up a new round. put 300 thru it bolt action style. re cleaned and oiled. i put 223 rem in it first gonna switch to 556 and hopefully that will do if not need to take it back and get checked out. poss bolt prob i guess. It is a quality weapon tho of that i am sure. update?

Wife- 10 years in the army
Friend- competition shooter
me- begginer

Your AR is a bolt action yet you still claim it is quality? I wouldn't be able to trust the thing ever after a fiasco like that.

Better rounds? You were using some of the most commonly used stuff.

Im going to say your gun has too heavy of a buffer in it and its causing your short cycle problems

You are correct.

My opinion, and it is just that: MY OPINION, is that there are those who have precision AR's out there who might not want to shoot a lower grade ammo through their trophy or competition guns. If I were competing, I would probably use more expensive ammo myself. If that is the case, I would keep an AR set aside to practice with and shoot the cheaper ammo with, then shoot the high dollar ammo when it counted. I would keep the sights zero'd with the expensive rounds on my main gun, then shoot the Wolf rounds with a similar setup to what I have now. I don't any experience with Stag, but some of the threads on the forum suggest it is picky about the ammo it shoots, but otherwise a fine AR. Mine are more of SHTF guns that fire no matter what crap ammo I shoot.

The usual culprits are;
1. Ammo- lo-pwr ammo will cause short cycle. Some cheap ammo is coated with laquer to prevent rusting. This will coat the chamber&breech, and attract dirt
2. gas rings-make sure that the gas rings are staggered
3. have you cleaned & lubed lately?
4. check that the gas tube/gas block/ is connected and intact
I've shot several Brands of ammo. My only complaint has to do with the rust-inhibitor coatings.

1. Ammo-mine will shoot anything. If there was ammo it wouldn't shoot, I would fix my gun so it would.
2. Gas rings-good iidea. I replace mine after every trip to the range. Only$0.35 each, so that is cheap maintenance
3. I am a lazy @$$ when it comes to cleanup. I drop my bcg in solvent and use brake cleaner for the rest, then put a little lube on it and call it a day. I got other things to do with my time. My gun shoots when I want it to.
4.Checking gas tube/block is a good idea.
As others have posted, you might want to check your buffer/spring setup. I know of a few guys who have a different buffer/ spring setup for practice ammo than what they have for competition ammo. If you have an adjustable gas block, you might also want to change your setting.
