Stag Arms 3T-M

posted on April 28, 2014

The Model 3T series from Stag Arms is designed to provide shooters with a rifle that's a natural fit with nearly any of today's shooting styles. The new 3T-M is a product of the company's close relationship with the action-shooting and competition communities. Further input, this time from law enforcement officials, helps provide the rifle with a self-defense build, too.

The rifle features a 16-inch free-floated government profile barrel with a carbine length gas system. A DiamondHead USA handguard and flip-up front and rear sights are also included. The handguard is free floating and modular, allowing for the attachment of rail sections or sling mounts. An upgraded buttstock, pistol grip and sight set is also included.
