Funny, everywhere else I've been, "Gaijin" mean "not human" or "other than human".

With these revelations my world begins to.......

I just ordered a new Stagarms, and I feel confident I'm getting a quality rifle, I have several friends that own Stags and love them, they've been shooting them for years now and couldn't be happier with there rifles, in fact in past years I haven't heard any one complain about there Stags, that's what convinced me to go with them, I'm sure your problem can be taken care of, like others have said give Stagarms a call, I've heard there customer service is tops also.

Looking forward to getting mine

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
from what I know, They make good stuff and a friend told me in the past that they had great customer service... Try different ammo and if no results, contact the Manufacturer. They might even throw in some free mags

I had ran across that same problem once. I took out my bran new Stag AR and used Wolf ammo. After about 50 rounds or so one got stuck in the chamber. I took it home and removed it; cleaned and oiled. The next weekend I went back out with nato 5.56 brass and it shot great. In fact I had not had that problem again. Wolf worked fine in my Mini 30 but I will never shoot it in my AR again. It's best to pay the extra dime per round.

Guys, can I just say one thing, I dont care if you can fire .223 in a 5.56 chambered rifle, if your rifle has 5.56 stamped on it or .223, use what is specified. When I served in the Corps, we gave our rifles a girls name. Why, so it would become a part of us and us a part of her. We dont get to fire a shot until the 6th or 7th week, in the meantime, from about the end of the first week going into the second week of boot, we were issued our rifles and man I couldn't tell you how many times we took them apart, cleaned them and put them back together again. We had to get to know our girl. From our drill insrructors (two of my DI's were snipers and one was Force Recon) to the range officer and reange sergant, DONT use any ammo that your rifle/handgun isn't specd to fire. This means .223 in 5.56 or 7.62 NATO in a .308. You get the idea. So, take it from the guys who have been in the business of defending our country fro a few hundred years now. Sure, you may get a way with it for awhile and maybe you wont, sooner or later your girl will complain (malfunction) if you don't give her waht she wants. So, date your girl, love her and care for her as how she wants to be. Give her her 5.56 if she calls for it, giver her 7.62 NATO if she calls for it. God bless and may God continue to bless the Marine Corps!!! OOORRRAAAHHH!!!

BACK UP COWBOY

First, and everybody else has said this, WOLF is crap. Next do one thing for me. Pull the BCG. Pull the firing pin retainer pin, Pull the firing pin. Rotate the Bolt cam lock (or what ever it is called) 90* and remove it. Pull the bolt.

CLOSELY inspect the gas rings. IF any of the gaps are lined up or maybe even all three, that will cause this problem. The ring are like the ring on your car's pistons. If they are not gapped and installed correctly, NO compression. No compression in an AR means No Ejecty!!!

Rotate the rings so they are evenly spaced around the bolt. Re-install it all go to the range and shoot some NON Crap ammo. THEN report.

I've been with Roxy (Mdl-1) for about three years. I've had one incident of broken case. That was at about 100 rounds. Been perfect ever since. There is a tool for removeing broken cases. Only costs a few dollars. I keep one in my pistol-grip jic...... Don't hear much negative about Stags. Clean her, don't feed her eastern block ammo. Those Steel cases are usually covered with varnish. Previous posts are the results. I've settled on ATI 62gr. Clean, and groups tighter than green-tip. Hoped to get chrono'd some day. Devil-Dog said it. Treat her like a lady and she'll be real sweet. Treat her like a sick whore, and she'll be that! Usually at the most inconvienient time!

I'd do more diagnostics before blaming steel case. It really does work well in most ARs. I have no problems with it especially the price.

well it might, but like I said, there are some slight variations in casing that may cause issues with the runds causing barrel pressure which can cause your barrel to eventually crack and Gd forbid rupture and blow. To each his own, all I can say is play it safe, 5.56 is all thats going into my Stag model 1. I prefer Federal M193 5.56. Hey if its good for the Corps, its good for me
