A: With AR-15's as long as you are using the proper bolt for the caliber you do not need to match a bolt to the barrel.
I was very happy to find a barrel for retro builds. The assembly was exactly the quality I expected to receive from Stag. This completed my A2 clone, original hand guards fit perfectly.
No more right hand - left hand barrels. New ownership fixed that problem. U.S. Veterans are running the show now. My rifle looks so much better and shoots better with this barrel. My Stag Dealer/gunsmith is the greatest too. Stag Arms customer for life. The ambidextrous barrel extensions shows me that this company means business.
