results posted January 1, 2014

Question: How do you rate the Bushmaster vs Stag Arms model 1? I did own a Bushmaster and it was a good rifle. A few of my friends own Stag rifles and they seem to be good as well. I do own two Colts and find them to be excellent guns. I guess what I’m saying is that out of the rifles you listed I would chose Colt. by CAG

How do you rate the stag arms vs colt ar-15?
For a $400 difference, Id get the Stag. I know Colts are very good guns, but IMO, you also pay for the name. I have a Stag Model 1 I got about 1.5 years ago and added all kinds of stuff to it. I have never had a single problem and Ive put around 3000 rounds through it so far. Its plenty accurate too. The fit and finish were also very nice. by Pipeline

LWRC M-6, great setup and all around best parts in a factory weapon that doesn’t need mods and never jams.


Brett November 27, 2013 at 7:37 am

I agree with Chris, LWRC M-6. However, I also like Knights Armament MOD1 for non-piston, Long range AR would be GA Precision GAP-10


Eric November 28, 2013 at 1:55 pm

The Doublestar Corp. and Accurate Armory, both out of Kentucky, manufacture excellent weapons. I’ve trained with models from each.


David W Clark December 16, 2013 at 7:47 pm

I have an older BM for LEO which is very good and a BCM which is much better. I would be perfectly happy with LMT, DD, LWRC, and am ESPECIALLY intrigued with the War Sport LVOA. All are top tier and if your life is at risk when you have to shoot it you can’t go wrong with any listed here with the BM being the “BM” of the bunch. Many others are top notch but it becomes a Ford or Chevy choice. Have extra upper and lower parts kits, staked bolts and BCGs, triggers, springs, and bushings, etc.
oh, did I say plenty of target ammo and also the good stuff.
