The simple answer is it doesn't matter. Both Stag and Spikes are good to go. The difference between the two...Stag does their machining in house, while Spikes contracts out...that's the last I heard anyway.

There is a lot more to it than that. IMO each have a different target audience thus offer a different product.

As far as the machining I'm not sure how accurate your comment is. They probably wouldn't answer that question anyway, most seem to hold that info fairly close.

DD makes the large majority of their stuff including most of the fasteners they use. I believe DPMS makes most of their stuff as well. So you can see that making your parts in house doesn't always make a difference.

I would say , compare models 1 and 2 with the upgrade kit from Stag Arms. And the last two 16 LE carbines on the last page from Spikes.

Don't worry about links we'll do all the work for you.

Why don't you do the research for yourself.

Your links do nothing but take us to the home page of the manufacturer. Have you wondered why you're not getting much help?
