Stag Arms was founded with the goal to manufacture reliable, 100% American made, competitively priced ARs, quickly becoming a market leader and one of the largest firearms manufacturers in the United States. Made to mil-spec standards and in the 6.8 SPC caliber, their Model 5 offers a harder punch in the same AR-15 package. Every Model 5s starts with forged aluminum upper and lower receivers and a 16", 4140 steel, chrome-lined, government profile barrel with a manganese phosphate protective coating. An F-marked post front sight comes standard with a picatinny top-rail for adding additional sights or optics. Additional features include: a thermoplastic handguard with double heat shields, an A2 plastic grip, and a single-stage trigger. The Post-Ban model has a fixed stock, a fixed compensator, and no bayonet lug.
