Default Steyr Aug users ?

Was at a big gun show yesterday, several hundred tables, and one guy had a NIB Steyr Aug. I have always wanted one, don't see too many in Montana. I think he was a bit high on his price. I got his card and thought I'd research them. He is a gunsmith from another Montana town and said he has 3 if them. So I can get one from him next month or whenever, no hurry. Anybody have one, or got to shoot one ?

I have a Steyr AUG/A3 that I bought back in April. It is so short and handy. I have shot it some but not a lot but I like it. Like most bullpup designs the trigger pull is pretty bad but not much can be done about that because of all the linkage required with the action back by your ear and the trigger some where out in front of that. I have heard the Tavor trigger is some better than the AUG. I may try to add one those to my collection next year. The prices seem about the same for either and the Tavor uses AR magazines. I gave around $2100 for my AUG and 3 magazines.

I guess Steyr has an Aug model now that uses AR-15 magazines.

I don't know. Could be. Mine used a different magazine and I haven't seen a AUG that uses AR magazines. I did see an after market replacement lower receiver that said would us AR magazines that seems like too much trouble.

Yes, Steyr AUG's can now use AR-15 magazines. I prefer the Steyr over the Tavor. To me the Steyr is much easier to manipulate than the Tavor. I sell the Steyr AUG's for $1849. They're much easier to get a hold of and cheaper than the Tavors.

The Microtech looks like a real good copy of the AUG. I was just reading that the original company went out of business but now there are new owners and they are manufacturing again.
