Default stag arms plus package

looking at getting a stag arms 2TL and was wondering if it was worth getting the plus package kind of new to the ar rifles but one of the main differences is you get a 1-7 twist barrell instead of 1-9 here are what they list as the plus package for $100 more

4150 barrel steel chrome lined
- 1/7 Twist rifling
- M4 feed ramps
- Individually MP & HP tested and marked Bolt & Barrel
- M-16 Bolt Carrier
- Heavy (H) buffer assembly
- One extra 30rd USGI Magazine (two total)*

Personally, I would pay the extra $100 for the MPI and HP testing of the barrel and bolt, M4 ramps and full auto BCG...1:7 twist versus 1:9 alone, not so much unless I was planning on sending heavy rounds long distances.

Are all the options above available only on the plus package? Some builders will do the true mil spec MPI and HP testing on every barrel and bolt and use the M4 extension on all their products. Of course the price may be equal to what you plan to pay for the STAG which is no slouch in the quality dept.

the heavy buffer and extra mag are probly a good 40 dollar value easy. id say go for the plus package.


i own a stag model 4 and love it. i have added a custom heavy buffer for it and have been very happy. stag makes pretty top notch stuff, and also has a great lifetime warranty

If you're gonna go Stag (rofl) that $100 package is definately worth the premium to me.....if only for the lifetime warranty. They do have really good CS.

Well you get a lot for that extra $100 but I guess the question is how much is the bottom line cost and how does it compare to other brands.

I'll go back to my original question, what type of ammo are you planning to run? There's a stability issue with a 1/7 vs 1/9 twist rate. Stag makes a nice gun, worked on quite a few, my question was regarding the twist. Are you shooting 70 grain match rounds?

It makes no sense to me that they are charging people EXTRA to do what others like BCM do as standard. It's BS that these manufacturers do this and that people actually let them.

I think that the 1:9 twist is the perfect medium
