Impressions & Pricing
The Stag Valkyrie looks amazing, they have really pulled out all the stops here. The starting point was the Stag 3 Gun Elite, a performance rifle in its own right. The handguard is unique, featuring a serious weight reduction. The 18-inch Stainless Steel barrel has been fluted and comes in a heavy profile. The gun is set up as a precision rifle, to get all that can be had from the new 224 round. Also standard, a VG6 compensator, which looks fantastic on the rifle.
Down in the fire control group, the new rifle features Stag’s own 2 stage national match trigger, coated in Nickel Boron. This coating further smooths out an already great trigger, one you are sure to love.
Rounding out the package, a Magpul PRS buttstock. This is an excellent choice for a precision rifle. All of Stag’s included features are going to make this hard to beat.
The best part? The price. Though MSRP is only $1,575, right now they are on sale for $1,179. And Stag has done right by the customer. You don’t even have to buy a complete rifle. They are leading the charge in offering an upper receiver only, currently $519 in left or right configuration.
