Why is a Warranty Important with a Firearm?

 
Stag Arms Warranty

A warranty is a specific type of protection plan that is commonly offered either by a product manufacturer or retailer to cover certain unforeseen circumstances that may arise with the product in question.

In the case of a firearm, a warranty can be offered either by the company who made the product or by the retailer you bought it from.

While many people assume that a warranty of any type isn't really important, there are a number of situations where one will most certainly come in handy with regards to your firearm.

How to Prevent Your AR-15 Rifle from Overheating

 
How to Prevent My AR15 from Overheating

Before you start getting too worried about your AR-15 rifle overheating, know that AR-15s are expected to heat up through regular use.

As long as the barrel isn't turning red and drooping down like in a cartoon, your rifle is probably fine (as long as the issue is not that you're abusing your rifle).The original M16s were designed as select fire infantry weapons for short full automatic firing and not to replace heavier machine guns.
 

[Press Release] Stag Arms Introduces New 9mm Series of AR-15 Rifles

 
Stag-Arms-Model-9T

After overwhelming requests from our customers and a long time in research and development, our first pistol caliber carbine is officially being released today. The new Model 9 & 9T series of rifles provide the shooter with a compact pistol caliber carbine on a well known platform.

Compared to the 5.56 cartridge, the 9mm cartridge used in a carbine configuration is the ideal choice for short range & self defense use – up to 200 yards due to decreased muzzle blast, decreased muzzle flash, lower recoil, reduced over-penetration, and a heavier bullet.

An added benefit is that you can also shoot this rifle at most pistol caliber only indoor ranges.

Left Handed Ambidextrous Rifle Accessories

"I'm right handed. Why do I need ambidextrous rifle accessories?" If you're asking yourself this question, you will definitely want to educate yourself on why left-handed or ambidextrous accessories can prove to be extremely beneficial.

Believe it or not, ambidextrous AR-15 accessories and parts are gaining in popularity with right and left-handed owners for a wide range of reasons. You get a lot of performance advantages with left-hand and ambidextrous parts that you won't get with a rifle built strictly for right-handed users. Here are just a few.

Incorporating the evolution of shooting tactics and rifle accessory technology, we created our Model 3TH-M rifle, and due to popular demand, we are now offering the upper half separately. The Model 3TH-M provides the shooter with an upper half which is readily usable with many of today’s shooting styles.

Working with multiple law enforcement agencies, a few of which learned speed and accuracy from our 3-Gun shooting team, we have tested and determined the features and configuration which works best with these new tactics.

Utilizing these upper halves, shooters are able to produce fast and accurate shots from close to long range as is needed in tactical situations and competitions.

Stag Arms Now Offering American & Gadsden Flag Engravings On Their Rifles

 
Engraved-AR-15-Lowers

STAG ARMS, one of the world’s largest AR-15 manufacturers, is now adding specialized laser engravings on rifles and lowers with the American or Gadsden Flag on the magazine well.

These two new engravings are in addition to the extremely popular second amendment engraving. Unlike an imprint or coating, laser engravings penetrate through the anodized layer to the metal underneath, which makes it impossible to wear off.

STAG ARMS Sales Manager David DeFord said, “Everyone at our factory is proud of the USA and we are very vocal about our second amendment rights. We wanted our customers to be able to show the same patriotism.”

What is a Short Barreled Rifle and How do I Get One?

 
NFATCA

Let's start with the bottom line: If you're interested in getting a hold of a Stag Arms short barreled rifle or upper half for your collection, you're going to have to become familiar with the National Firearms Act.

The NFA requires the registration and taxation of certain guns. The idea was originally intended to prevent people from wanting to buy and use these firearms, including machine guns, short-barreled shotguns, and SBR’s or short-barreled rifles.

What is a SBR?

A SBR, according to the NFA, is any firearm with a buttstock that has a rifled barrel of less than sixteen inches, or an overall length of less than twenty six inches. The total length is measured in the extended position, if you're using a folding or collapsing stock, removing the buttstock at home doesn't count.
