The 6mm ARC cartridge was released early this year with robust fan fair from Hornady along with large initial support from gun manufacturers and barrel makers. Since, the initial hype and release there hasn’t been much heard of from the round. Especially, in the realm of rifles being built around 6mm ARC until now. Last week, Stag Arms released their Covenant series of rifles chambered in 6mm ARC.

The new Covenant rifles from Stag Arms will be available in 16” and 18” variants. The 16” Covenant will feature a mid-length gas system, a free float M-Lok handguard, and come with Magpul MOE furniture. The 18” Covenant will feature a full length gas system, a 16.5” free float M-Lok handguard, and come with a Magpul MOE pistol grip and PRS stock. Both Covenant rifles come in right and left hand configurations and feature a 10-round box magazine.

Below, is a statement from Stag Arms about the new Covenant Rifles, product descriptions, and specs.

Product Description

Covenant 16”

Meet our new Stag-15 Covenant rifle chambered in 6mm ARC which is designed to provide the most capability possible from an AR-15-size receiver. This rifle has been designed to be the best balance of features, so you’ll get a gun that’s lightweight and easy to handle while still being more than capable at longer distances.

Our 16 inch barrel has a 1:7-inch twist rate designed to provide ideal performance with the higher ballistic coefficients of 6mm projectiles. The gun itself is built with a mid-length gas system that reliably cycles the action without putting extra stress and wear on internal components. Each rifle ships with an MPI-inspected M16 bolt-carrier group complete with a salt-bath-nitride finish.

Our 6mm ARC comes with a free-floated Slimline handguard, a Magpul MOE-Fixed Rifle stock, MOE pistol grip, Aluminum Oversized trigger guard and one 10-round aluminum Magazine.
