Default Stag or Colt?

I'm looking at alot of Ar-15's online and im having a little problem, I can't decide on a StagArms Ar-15 or a Colt Ar-15.
Which is generally better?

They are both great companies. Me and ZG just purchased a Stag Model 3 and love it. It all depends on what you want to spend and what feels good to you.

The colt will hold its value better over time than the Stag, but other than that, it's really up to you and your price tag

Call it what you will but if you paid $1200 for your Colt and $900 for your Stag , there still going to be worth what you paid so long as you keep them in good condition . The price of used ARs is not dropping . If anything its gaining steam right now . I have a PSA that I purchased in December direct from them for $599 , it has some different parts on it now but I have been offered $1300 for it the way it sits and I have about $900 in it with optics and different handguard . Sorry still wont take it . My buddy bought a PSA rifle kit placed it on a DTI lower and sold it to his buddy while he was at the range or $900 no optics . Said he only got to shoot 2 boxes 40 rds of ammo thru it before his buddy laid down 9 / $100 bills to entice him . He did take it and ordered another kit and made a couple hundo to boot . Happy days like that make ya feel pretty good

My preference is definitely the Colt.

I prefer the LE 6940, but the slightly less expensive LE6920 will also serve you well.

I agree with an earlier poster that the Colt name will definitely hold resale value better than most others.
To the world, you may be only one person. but to one person you may be the world.

I'd go Colt unless you really want a midlength, if so, then PSA or BCM (which both also have carbine length gas).
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.

I have 2 stags they are great! But colt is top notch! Quality n reliability are about the same but with colt you get the name. As stated it comes Down to what you want to spend
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.

Stag and colt are both well built and a value for their price. But for the same $ as the colt you can put a nice optic on a stag. Either way, they're both worth the $$ you spend.

Do some more research! Colt is the only answer here and the fact you don't realize that shows me at Least you haven't done your homework.
