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. Their Model 9 utilizes a dedicated 9mm lower that doesn't require a mag block. Every Model 9 starts with forged aluminum upper and lower receivers and a 16", 4140 steel, chrome-lined, government profile barrel with a manganese phosphate protective coating. The Diamondhead VRS-T handguard provides a drop-in modular system that makes the rifle endlessly customizable when coupled with the full-length picatinny top rail and railed gas block. The 9T comes ready for the field with the addition of a set of Diamondhead premium metal flip-up sights mounted on the rail. Additional features include: an A2 flash hider, an A2 plastic grip, a single-stage trigger, and a 6-position collapsible stock.
