NRA Gun of the Week: Stag Arms 7L Rifle

by
posted on November 14, 2015
No need to reinvent the wheel, just make it a left-hand drive. That’s exactly what Stag Arms has been doing from the start with its L-series rifles, which now include 16 model variants. 

Designed with hunting in mind, the Stag 7L rifle not only looks great, but it’s functional, too—a completely southpaw friendly AR, equipped with the accessories one would utilize during the hunt of a lifetime. An added boost is provided by its 6.8 SPC chambering which extends the effective range and increases terminal performance over the ubiquitous 5.56 mm NATO cartridge. Reliable operation is provided by the tried and true AR-design—proven for not only protection, but also as a means to fill the freezer. Most lefties would agree that they are often left out, but companies like Stag Arms, answer with lefty-ready rigs.

Watch American Rifleman's Kelly Young in this week’s "NRA Gun of the Week" as he deconstructs the Stag 7L chambered in 6.8 SPC.
