Why is the Colt better? Does it do something better? Does it have a lifetime warranty? Does it cut you food up for you? What makes it better ?
Colt has a 1 year warranty.
Stag is lifetime.

Colt has a shot peened bolt, Stag doesn't.
Colt's gas key will be properly staked, Stag's - maybe.

Colt's barrel will be 11595E, Stag will be 4140.

Colt's barrel will be HPT/MPI, Stag does batch testing.

Same with the bolt.

Colt will be 1 in 7 twist, Stag will be 1 in 9.

What's all that mean? Nothing to most people. Figure out what you really want and if any of that matters to you. The shot peening of the bolt is in my opinion, the one thing stag shouldn't leave out.
