Since its founding in 2003, Stag Arms has specialized in advancing the AR firearms platform. Having pioneered the first left-handed modern sporting rifle, Stag Arms continues to develop around different calibers on the AR platform for both right and left-handed shooters. Stag Arms rifles are 100% American-made at their new facility in Cheyenne, Wyoming, including every part assembled. They aim to provide recreational shooters, LEOs, hunters, and professional shooters with superior quality and competitively priced rifles.

Stag Arms back all their rifles with an Infinite Shot Barrel Guarantee and a Transferable Lifetime Warranty. They strive to give their customers the best overall experience with their products and the best customer service experience.


Stag Arms has released its first product line explicitly dedicated to hunting, the Stag Pursuit Hunting Line. Where every ounce counts, they’ve prioritized making these rifles as light as possible.

The Pursuit hunting line comes in the Stag 10 or 15 Platform, depending on your chosen caliber. Currently, the Pursuit is chambered in your choice of .308 NATO, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 Grendel, or .350 Legend.


The Pursuit line rifles come in the first-ever Midnight Bronze Cerakote.

The Stag Arms breach ambidextrous charging handle and ambidextrous safety make everything equal whether you’re right or left-handed. Another plus is the Timney USA Curved short two-stage trigger.

Since Stag Arms is the master of the left-handed AR Platform, the Pursuit line is available in left and right-hand ejection models.


The 16″ lightweight Hanson Profile barrel is manufactured from 4150 CMV (Chromium Molybdenum Vanadium) with a nitride finish, threaded 5/8×24 RH, and equipped with a VG6 Gamma Brake.
