STAG ARMS Lands Contract with Cleveland PD
STAG ARMS is pleased to announce that the Cleveland, OH police department has chosen a custom configured STAG ARMS Model 2 as the official rifle of the department. The rifles are being delivered this week.
In these tough economic times, it can be difficult for officers to obtain a rifle that is both budget friendly and one that fulfills the department’s needs. STAG ARMS was able to provide just that by working collaboratively with Cleveland PD to outfit the department with 100 new rifles while keeping the cost within arms reach. The result – a modified, accessorized version of the Model 2 built “from the ground up” complete with the department’s logo engraved on the lower receiver. In addition, the rifles will feature an Eotech 517 sight as well as an ambidextrous safety selector.
“Having a reliable weapon is essential to fighting crime – we look forward to outfitting Cleveland PD with rifles they can count on and hope to foster a partnership with them for many years to come,” commented Mark Malkowski, owner and president of STAG ARMS.
STAG ARMS manufactures a complete line of rifles, and is most widely known for their innovative left-handed models. Citing the need for an accurate, durable, and above all effective duty rifle for several of its specialized units, Cleveland PD chose STAG ARMS without hesitation.
“The new rifles are necessary for today’s climate and will be standard issue for officers who meet the qualifications,” said Sgt. Sammy Morris. Morris went on to praise the advantages of the STAG ARMS rifles compared to the standard issue shotguns currently used by the department. “Perhaps the greatest advantage is the pinpoint accuracy – they also weigh less, are more compact, hold 20 rounds compared to 5, and are much easier to operate with reduced recoil.”
