EDIT by Mod- quote of deleted post removed
Lol. All their (Stag/Spikes) ARs are made to the same specs? Midlength or carbine? There's a lot to making a choice. Some of their (Stag/Spikes) stuff is good some not so good. What are you comparing?

And what does rocket science have to do wizardry?

Respect your user name and conduct yourself appropriately.

There should be a link on the homepage of both brands that will show you dealers near you. I would check them out and see if they allow you to test fire before you buy. That way you can get a feel of how they both operate. Thats how I ended up with my Olympic Arms AR instead of a Black Rain Ordinance AR. Just my 2¢ hope it helped.

I chose to buy the Stag Model 2T over the other models I was looking at because:
1. Quality parts.
2. Good reviews.
3. It had a great metal BUIS already on the rifle.
4. It had a great free float quad rail.
5. Comes in a hard case with a 30 round Mag.
6. I got it for $950 out the door.
To date, I have put around 1K rounds through it with no failures of any kind.
I have a short review with pics, Here: http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f20/new-rifle-metamorphosis-36622/

Then where did you get your information. I'm curious and just trying to expand the little knowledge I have.

I'm starting to have a hard time following this thread. USMarineEJP, you asked for opinions on Stag and Spikes ARs. First, which models? Don't just tell us where to click, which specific models. Second, where are you getting your info from?

I'd be curious as to how things are today.
