SHOT Show 2019: Stag Arms Pistol-Caliber Carbines

posted on January 17, 2019

Already well versed in the AR-15 and AR-10 platforms, for 2019 Stag Arms has expanded its purview to include an entire line of pistol-caliber carbines. Each feeding from double-stack Glock magazines of the appropriate chambering, the new Stags will be offered in 9 mm Luger, .40 S&W, 10 mm Auto and .45 ACP. Offered in versions with 16”, 10.5” and 5.5” barrels, the guns feature free-floating handguards, last-round bolt hold-opens and re-designed magazine-release buttons in order to accommodate their handgun magazines. For now, only right-handed models are available, but this is Stag after all, and southpaw variants are expected later in the year. For more information, visit​
