Not that I'm trying to diagnose your condition, but take a chance, and shoot a full length AR. What I found is that the recoil of the shorter length gas (Carbine) system does give a heavier and noticeable thud. The full-length gas system(20") seems to dissipate most of the recoil energy, and thus is reduced to just a "wiggle" in your hand.

I thank you for your concern & suggestion. But, my second surgery will involve plates and bolts connecting the top of my spine(T-1) to bottom of the neck bone (C-7). ANY jarring of this region of my neck would create a risk that I'm not willing to take. We were hoping that the 1st surgery would have been enough to correct the problem of the pain in my neck, but it wasn't meant to be. Fishing will still be O.K. though, because it seems that all I can catch are little fish anyway. And thank you VERY much for your service to my country!! R.D. Grey - U.S.M.C.

Even a .22 short can create some recoil. I don't think it is worth it in Roadhog's case. If I were in his shoes, I might not even try a WII version. Roadhog, take care of yourself, and peace be with you. Semper Fidelis.

Sorry to hear about your health issues, Roadhog. Guess it's bent elbow pistol shooting from now on. Hmmm, there are AR pistols!

is there a brand i can just to buy and clean and oil like a normal gun and have it function? at this point id rather have an sks
I got my stag arms model 3 about 2 and a half years ago and I've put at least 5000 rounds through it with not 1 jam nor malfunction not even failure to eject. You might have got the 1 out of the bunch cause mines solid and would recommend stag arms to anyone. Its not the best but its far from the worst if you know what I mean, for the price its the best you'll find.imho

First off don't use steel case ammo in any AR15 platform there all aluminum receivers and steel will obviously tear it to pieces after much use. Second I'm a proud owner of a stag arms model 3 for almost 2 1/2 years now and there not even close to junk. I've put over 5000 rounds through with not 1 jam,malfunction, failure to feed or eject. If you take care of your rifle it will take care of you. Also got a aim point pro on it and after 2 1/2 years and I'd say 7000 rounds I can still shoot 3 moa groups at 100yards with a 2moa reticle easily. IMHO stag arms makes great quality firearms.

I had a Stag Arms 2T, never had a problem with the weapon or any ammo, it ate it all. My son is now the proud owner.

I use steel ammo; have for years with no more ftf issues than brass. I got rifles with tens of thousands of steel rounds through them. I wouldn't think Stag would be a picky eater.

This is proably OBE now since the OP was years ago.. But for what its worth, in 2008 I also had a Stag and it did also have a weak extractor spring also failing to eject especially Wolf Ammo.
