New Stag Arms 1L

I just purchased a new Stag Arms 1L (left-handed) AR-15. I had some money left over from the sales of two other guns of mine and used the left over money to put a Troy modular rail fore end on the gun as well as a pistol grip and tac-light. I took it to the range with two military bandoliers of 5.56 ammo along with several Pmags and put it through it's paces, as well as sighting it in. I shot up both bandoliers and the gun functioned flawlessly, with no FTF's or FTE's at all. I was able to fire about 2 1/2" groups with iron sights and a brand new barrel at 100 yds, which I was satisfied with.
After over 20 years of shooting "normal" AR's, it took a little bit of getting used to the controls and ejection port being on the left side but after a couple of mags, I was getting used to a "lefty" AR and really liked not getting gasses and carbon blown in my face!
I highly recommend this rifle to any lefty or any right-handed person for that matter. With a lifetime warranty, how can you go wrong?

Dude...Your rifle is backwards.... Does it have a 1:7 LEFT hand twist? LOL


After my Dad griping about everthing being righthanded (Had to be a conspiracy) I'm glad to see it.

I'm right handed, but can shoot ok left handed too (product of broken right shoulder, what was I supposed to do, miss dove hunting?) I'll vouch for you lefties, a lot of rifles fling junk into your face. The 1100 Remington shotgun has to be the worse.

Kudos to STAG for producing a left handed Black Rifle. I've heard nothing but good about their ARs.

Congrats... sounds like it's a shooter! I shoot long guns lefty and have never had trouble with unsuppressed fire from any of my autos, including my Colt SP-1 "slickside" or my Remington 1100. I would like lefty bolt and mag releases for the AR, though.

Greetings,

Great rifle; congrats! I have a left handed friend who I shoot with on occasion. Just for kicks, I tried to shoot his AK left handed. I tell you, that really made me appreciate what left handed shooters go through in a right handed world. Glad to hear that at least some manufactures are accommodating you guys!

Regards, Jim

I'm a righty but I bought a Stag a few years back and I love it. Not one malfunction since I've had it. More affordable than many other AR's but very good quality.

[QUOTE=7.62bthp;668073]Dude...Your rifle is backwards.... Does it have a 1:7 LEFT hand twist? LOL


It has the 1/9 twist barrel, which I believe is a good barrel for just about any grain of bullet.
And as far as what we lefties had to go through with guns, this was a long time a comin'. I was made to fire the M60 right-handed when I was in the Army, and never quite got the hang of it. When I went to Germany, they had me fire 6 different M-16A1's until I found one that didn't fling brass into my cheek when fired. My right cheek looked like hamburger after that "test" LOL. The biggest problem lefties encounter when firing "normal" semi-auto rifles besides the ejected brass issue, is the much higher level of sound going into your right ear when shooting. Even though I have always worn hearing protection, I hear much better out of my left ear than my right one for that very reason I suspect.

I am left handed. I have been thinking of buying one of their left handed uppers. The first center fire rifle I had was a 98 Mauser in 8mm. Got a good deal on it and a bunch of ammo. Shot it for years. Then got an O3A3, shot it quite a bit. So I got used to right handed bolt actions. Then I got a left handed Weatherby. It was a revelation. I will never buy another right handed bolt action. I have had right handed friends shoot my left handed Weatherby. So of them can hardly figure out how to put it on their shoulder.

A left-handed upper is all you would need. The lower is the same for both rifles except the safety is on the left side on the 1L.

You are right Stagg does make a very good AR-15 platform I own A .223 and a 6.8mm both in lefthanded I really love my 6.8mm it shoots like nothing I've ever shot before so smooth and hit my targets is a no brainer. I'm sort of wondering why we don't us the 6.8mm in combat instead of the .223 round. So dude good luck and enjoy your Stagg .223 AR-15
