Stag Arms Now Offers Five Color Options For Their Rifles

Posted by Stag Arms on Thu, Sep 03, 2015

Stag Arms is proud to announce that in addition to their standard mil-spec black anodize coating, select models of their AR-15 rifles can now be purchased with Cerakote finishes in the following colors; Burnished Bronze, Gun Metal Grey, Foliage Green, and Desert Tan. After exhaustive research with different types of coatings the Cerakote finish came out top in all tests. Stag Arms president Mark Malkowski stated “We have listened to our customer’s requests for rifles in various colors and I always want to ensure that any product Stag Arms offers is of the utmost quality and durability. It is what our customers expect and more importantly, what they deserve.”

The Cerakote finish is available as an upgrade on the models 1, 2, 2T, 3, 3T, 3TM, 5, 9, and 9T along with their left-hand counterparts. Created in 1984 as a durable ceramic coating for engine headers and exhaust components; Cerakote quickly became one of the toughest and longest lasting firearm finishes in the world boasting a resistance to abrasion, corrosion, and rust.

Stag Arms has long been known to bring great value to their customers while maintaining the highest standards, which is why the upgrade price for the Cerakote finish is $75.00 while other companies charge $135.00-$250.00. In addition, Stag Arms rifles will have more of the rifle’s exterior coated than many competitors’ rifles. The coating includes the handguard, delta ring, upper receiver, lower receiver, buffer tube, A2 grip, and mil-spec buttstock. Other grips and buttstocks offered will only be available in their original colors. The Cerakote coating upgrade must be purchased at the same time the order for the rifle is placed and cannot be applied after the rifle leaves the factory.

Stag Arms sales representatives can be contacted directly via phone at 860-229-9994 extension #1. If ordering online, simply choose the rifle finish upgrade option on the item page.

Stag Arms Now Offers 300 Blackout AR-15 Rifles

Posted by Stag Arms on Thu, Aug 13, 2015

Stag Arms is proud to release its 16 inch AR-15 carbine rifles in the popular 300 AAC BLK / 7.62x35mm caliber. The company had researched and tested many different cartridges on the AR-15 platform before making a final decision. Stag Arms president Mark Malkowski stated “In addition to the upper halves we offer in this caliber we are now offering a complete AR-15 rifle using the 300 Blackout cartridges with heavier bullets, great ballistics, and already on the shelves of most major stores. By utilizing the same reliable AR-15 firearm platform customers can still use their standard accessories.”

The Model 1, 2, 2T, 3, 3T, & 3T-M series of rifles can now be purchased in the 300 Blackout caliber for an additional $50.00.  The barrels are 16” long and manufactured from 4140 steel with chrome lining on the inside to increase durability. The 1/7 twist rate is designed to work with all bullet weights in the caliber and the barrel thread for the muzzle device is 5/8x24.

The supersonic 300 AAC Blackout cartridge was designed to closely match the ballistics of 7.62x39 ammunition with a minimal number of non-interchange parts compared to a 5.56 NATO AR-15. To decrease the feeding issues that occurred with 7.62x39 ammunition on the AR-15 platform, the cartridge case was derived from the U.S. Military 5.56 NATO case and will work with standard AR-15 magazines while retaining their original ammunition capacity.
