Stag Arms Model 6 Super Varminter Rifle Review

When I had the opportunity to visit the Stag Arms manufacturing facility in New Britain, Connecticut last year to film a television show featuring the company and their line of AR-style rifles, I wasn't sure what to expect. They were a relatively new brand (introduced in 2003), and I knew little about them other than they had taken the market by storm with their left-handed AR rifle. What I found was pleasantly surprising. The manufacturing process was efficient and quality control and pride in the finished product seemed to be at the nucleus of the entire operation. The Stag brand was a newcomer, but the parent company, Continental Machine & Tool, started in the 1960's and had been making parts for AR-15 style rifles ever since. The only thing new about the company was a change in brand name and the decision by Mark Malkowski (the founder's son) to build their own line of complete rifles.

When I saw the guys from Stag Arms again at SHOT this past January, I noticed a rifle adorning the wall of their booth that caught my eye. The "Super Varminter" and "Guaranteed 1/2 MOA" labels that were proudly displayed next to it convinced me that the rifle would be a perfect test subject to determine if the attention to detail that I saw at the factory correlated to performance in the field. The guys at Stag Arms weren't afraid to have their rifle and their claims put to the test and sent a Model 6 Super Varminter for review.


The Stag Arms Model 6 Super Varminter Rifle

The Stag Arms Model 6 Super Varminter Rifle weighs in at a hefty 9.7 pounds (unscoped and unloaded). It has a 1:8 twist, match-grade, stainless steel barrel chambered for 5.56 NATO, a free-floating, textured, aluminum handguard, an aluminum flattop receiver, a two-stage match trigger, Hogue grip and a non-adjustable A2 stock. All of these components add up to one thing - this is not your typical run-and-gun AR style rifle. The Model 6 SV was designed for driving tacks from a stationary position at long ranges.


The 1:8 twist, match-grade, stainless steel, bull barrel is
perfectly suited for an accurate, long-range varmint rifle.

Although the Model 6 SV is chambered for 5.56 NATO, it inherently shoots commercially available .223 ammo (see safety note at the end of the article). I decided the new Nikon M-223 in 3-12X42 configuration complemented with the Nikon M-223 mount designed specifically for AR-style platforms would be the ideal combination to sit atop the Stag rifle. After a quick bore sight, I was ready to head to the range.

I nestled the rifle into a set of Caldwell DeadShot Shooting Bags and prepared to complete the sight in process. Rather than waste "the good stuff" while adjusting the scope, I chose to use inexpensive Monarch .223 Rem, 55 gr., soft point ammo to get the shots on paper. I quickly had the shots hitting within a half inch of dead center at 100 yards and decided to go ahead and put a few more rounds through the gun to see what kind of accuracy could be ac...
