Stag arms quality question

I went to my local lgs today and went looking at his ar barrels. I have been thinking about another upper with a longer barrel that I will put a scope on for a little more range than the one I have now. He had a 20 inch Anderson but it was 1 in 9. I asked him a few questions and he told me he had a good deal on a stag complete upper with a 24 inch stainless 1 in 8 wylde chamber. Does anybody have any experience with one of these. This won't be something for competition but something I could reach out 300 yards or so and be able to beat cpj.

    Good luck beating cpj at 300... he upped his game. The last 300 yard target he showed me was under an inch. Stag? I haven't heard anything bad about them. I would buy one for the right price.

    I have a couple of Stags...well made and reliable.
    What's the barrel contour on that cousin had a 24" full bull and it's crazy barrel 24" RRA has a fluted heavy contour and the difference is remarkable...
    At any rate it will do the job you want it to do...

    My 6.8 Stag has a 20" barrel and I have taken it out to tad over 400 yards with success. sure to check out the offering from Palmetto State Armory , they always have some good deals..

    I had that very upper. The first 10 shots off a rest at 100 yards using mil spec ammo had 8 of the 10 touching each other. I sold it because I didn't like a 12 pound AR.
    It's a source of great pride for me, that when my name is googled, one finds book titles and not mug shots. Daniel C. Chamberlain
