Our impression of the Stag Arms carbine was that despite its many features, not all of which were completely useful, performance was limited by the poor quality of its trigger.

The Stag's rear sight offered a small peep sight that peeled away to reveal the larger aperture. Atop each blade was a third notch. We thought windage adjustment was coarse and not as dependable as we would have liked. The upper notch was of little value, in our opinion. The unit was held by a cross bolt, the nut for which was secured by a wire. This unit was better left for backup than primary use, in our view.
The left-side magazine release was a lever that pivoted inward, pulling on the release. Pressing the right-side button presented much less resistance. That's one reason why we refer to this gun as being ambidextrous rather than truly favoring the left-handed shooter.
Dual sling loops can make shoulder carry easier depending on need. But shooting with the sling would likely pull on the barrel and have a negative effect on accuracy. A forend mounted sling would be a better idea.
