You do realize they have contracted many parts out right? http://aopmfg.com/index.php/industries/firearms/

If im not mistaken Eugene Stoner was working at Armalite when he created the AR10 in 1954, and the AR15 in 1956? ......

Be it AR or 1911, Colt's a tough act to beat. The Johnnies-come-lately talk a good game but you gotta do more than talk to beat Colt.

Yes there are others that are Mil-Spec, and I'm far from a fanboy, I don't even own a Colt. . LOL. . I've just done the research. What is happening right now is you are butt hurt because you bought a cheap rifle. It's OK, nobody really makes a horrible rifle anymore. And you are jumping to conclusions. I never said that Colt is the end all be all, I said it's a better choice than Stag. And it is. So you just calm down and direct that anger towards someone who cares. I personally own an LMT, my next will be a colt probably just because I love the rifle length guns. SP1 it is:-) For the record I did not in any way want to make this some sort of flame war, I was just stating my opinion and dude got his feelings hurt. I'm sorry and hope we can move on from here:-)

I think the key term he was saying was "mass producer". I personally wouldn't have a problem with Stag. My online research has indicated they have decent QC. There are some good deals to be had in the $800-$1000 buck range. If I had a few hundred extra to spend, I would probably get the Colt just because it holds its resale value a lot better than some other similarly priced AR's on name recognition alone. And yes, Stoner was working at Armalite when he invented the AR 10 and the M16.

My first AR was a STAG, I love them. A mil-spec STAG and a mil-spec COLT are the same gun with different names on them. STAG makes one of the best AR's on the market, and they happen to be one of the leaders in the AR world. Anyone who says they are not good guns do not know what they are talking about.

The thing is though, you have to pay an extra $100 to get Stag's "milspec" upgrade which pushes their price pretty close to the $1000-1100 of the Colt.

Though I don't hate Stag, I'd sure take the pony over the deer.
