Description:

Steyr AUG is a family of firearms, first introduced in 1977 by the Austrian company Steyr Mannlicher.[2] AUG stands for Armee-Universal-Gewehr, meaning "Universal Army Rifle."[5] It is often used to refer to a specific version, especially the initial version which was 5.56 mm NATO bullpup assault rifle, with a distinctive green frame and integrated scope. It has since spawned a variety of related weapons including a submachine gun, a designated marksman rifle, and light machine guns. It has been adopted by a number of armed forces and organizations and is the standard service rifle of Austria, Australia, New Zealand, Luxembourg, Ireland, and at one time Malaysia.

    1st review

    I purchased mine through the law enforcement officer purchase program in the early 1990's. Although I didn't use it for duty, I competed in several 3-gun matches and loved every minute using it.

    I am an competitive shooter in several disciplines and I own 5 AR15s of different configurations including full-auto. I had the opportunity to shoot the Steyr AUG out in the Nevada dessert a few weeks ago for the first time. This is one of the nicest 5.56 rifles I have ever handled. Simple, accurate and well balanced, this could be used by women and children if they could pry it away from me. K9one

    During semi annual qualification, a co worker introduced me to this awsome beast, I fell in love with it.

    First used the Steyr in the Australian Army. The rifle is a great choice and can with-stand any thing you throw at it. It can be adapted to suit your individual tastes with a short, med and long barrel version. Great bit of gear
