One of the detectives at my dept. is selling his AR15. It is a Stag Arms with Aimpoint sights, polymer clips, mounted light, cleaning supplies and 500 rounds of ammo for $1800. I don't know much about these but it is approved for duty carry and I was thinking about buying it so I could get a feel for it long before I would have to qualify with it. I would love suggestions on value and quality of this particular gun. All input is appreciated!

I'm not familiar with Stag Arms, I bought my Rock River AR15 brand new for around $900 about 6 - 8 months ago. Rock River is a very reputible company. I haven't bought those gadgets but I wouldn't think that it would cost another $900 for all that.

I'd recommend doing a Google search on the model and sights. Stag Arms start at about $950, but can cost as much as $1400. Other than that, can't help ya out much (paid less than $900 for my Bushmaster 223, brand new). I don't know much about Stag Arms.

First off, thank you for the responses.  I don't know a whole lot about the gun, but I believe he said it was about 2 years old.  I don't know whether it is .223 or 5.56.  As far as the Aimpoint sight, I think it may be a the Comp M2 or ML2.

Don't know anything about Stag rifles, but from their picture, look a lot like other similar rifles. A new aimpoint should be a little less then $400, light could be from <$300 to $600 new depending on type, 500 rnds of 223 should be about $200 (for practice, duty would be higher), polymer mags are around $10 to $15 each but at least one should have come with the rifle.  It seems like to me that you could asemble what he has new for around $1800 to $2000 (or a little more if he went top of the line on rifle and light)or so depending on what options are used, for 2 year old I would probably figure at least 25-30% less that new, but that is me and what I would be willing to pay.  You might see if he would tell you what his cost was, LEO's can often get stuff at a discount, I paid abut $250 less thatn suggested retail for my S&W 223 rifle last year.

From what I have been told (someone correct me if I'm wrong please) Stag rifles are Mil Spec rifles. They make both uppers and lowers for other manufacturer's, I think Colt is one of them. I was told that I could get a Model 1, 2, or 3 for around $750 through a local distributor with an LE discount. I have heard they are a high quality rifle. If I have any money after taxes I'm going to try to talk my wife into buying me a Model 2. Plus they are completly American made.

Too much $$$. There are many other better quality rifles that can be had cheaper, with better accessories. Contact BCM, you can get a great LEO price from them on the rifle and any extras you buy. Plus a duty rifle is tax deductable. The lower cost rifles are great for range use, but cheaper parts and steels are used. MIL spec is an over used term, ignore it when reading about AR-15s. Here is a link that explains the differences better: spreadsheets.google.com/pub

I have to thank you all.  From what I'm reading, I think I am going to pass on this offer.  It seems I can get a better deal even buying new.  Again, thank you for all the input.

Stag is a good rifle. It is milspec and is chambered for 5.56mm. You can shop around and find one (model specific) in the $900 area. The Aimpoint is a good sight, but as previously mentioned can be had for $400-$500 dollars.


Seems like he's charging retail and trying to make a little extra on the sale. I think you are wise to pass.
