    Steyr AUG A3

    I haven't made it to the range yet, but that will be taken care of tomorrow. Overall this thing feels like it is very solid. I'll get a range report posted asap.

    Great piece of engineering. Ergonomically, how fast can you change your magazine?

    Magazine changes don't seem to be too bad. It's not as fast as my AR or HK, but it's a lot easier than I anticipated it to be.

    I thought they (AUG) was an "Assault Rifle", not a "Battle Rifle", please correct me if I'm wrong.

    "battle rifle" is a made-up term with no "official" definition, but the unofficial/errornet definition seems to be a semi-auto rifle chambered in a full-power rifle caliber, eg 7.62 NATO. As such, his AUG would not be an assault rifle (as it is semi-auto, I assume), and not a battle rifle, either (as 5.56 is an intermediate cartridge). However, it would probably meet the legal defintion of "assault weapon". :neener:

    Is that a real AUG or one of the new ones?

    The legal definition of an "assault rifle" is a pistol grip.... so ya know it's a load of s**t...

    It's a new Steyr AUG that's made here to bypass all the bs ATF import regulations.

    I thought the new ones were made under license by a different company under a different name.

    No. The legal definition of an assault weapon involves pistol grips. The military definition of an assault rifle is a select-fire rifle chambered in an intermediate caliber.

    There are AUG clones made by MSAR and TPD, but this is a Steyr branded gun. They are made here by Sabre Defence for Steyr.


    I got it for just under $2k.

    Anybody make one of those which does not use proprietary magazines? Perhaps uses the old standby AR15 mags?
