Zombies hate AUGS!

Post by ShipWreck » Thu May 23, 2013 9:43 pm

Got this in last Friday. Sold my 2nd PS90 to fund it...

My optic came in today... Just waiting on my sling....

I previously had an MSAR AUG - now, I have the real deal... A Steyr AUG!!!

Niiiice.

What about that trigger? Ive heard with a bit of tinkering it can be surprisingly light and crisp for a bullpup.

The German Steyr distributor charges EUR 100 for installation of what they call a "trigger tamer", and I suspect all they do for the money is putting in a lighter reset spring (or whatever you call this part).

Thank you for your time,
TODP.

There are actually a new options. That one, and a Neutrigger. And, there is an entire aftermarket trigger pack that will soon be available.

I once had an MSAR AUG a few years ago. I was fine with the stock trigger. I have a PS90 right now, and that trigger is fine to me.

I havent shot this yet - 1 more week to go. But just dry firing it, the trigger seems fine to me. We'll see.

Also jealous! The Steyr AUG, HK416, and M1A/M14 have been my favorite Personal Defense Rifles for years.

Congrats man!

I am also a big JOE fan myself. Have been since 1982. I have almost every JOE and Cobra toy made during 1982-86. Yeah I'm a nerd. I would trade them all for that Steyr AUG though.

$40 for 30 round mags and $45 for the 42 rounders are typically the cheapest.

CDNN has the 30 rounders for $29.99 this weekend, though. Just ordered a couple. That'll put me at 7 mags for now. I'd like to get 5 motr

So those are both full length? I didn't realize that an AUG was shorter than a PS90.

Both are super cool, and I'm super envious.

No, they were not stacked end to end. The PS90 is like 2 inches shorter... The photo just makes it look that was, I suppose...

But yes, neither have been short barrelled...

In Greek we have a word called "Me Yia," which means "with joy" in the context of an awesome purchase. Its basically like saying congratulations on an awesome purchase, and that we hope it brings you lots of joy (the greeks are big shoppers.)

Major Me Yia on that AUG man, seriously the coolest rifle out there in my opinion - with the PS90 a close second.

That takes standard AR style ( stanag or whatever ) mags, right? With the waffle mags being more original, or correct? Figured if I can find one at a decent price, I might feel better knowing I can use mags I've already got. Dang you, Shipwreck, I'm gonna hafta get a bigger safe! :wink:

Thats a nice rifle. Do you have any plans to invest in that 1.6 optic for it? They look so much sexier with the optic to me.

Here's my MSAR. I'm hoping to get my hands on a AUG somewhere down the line...

No, in my option, that factory optic is way overpriced. I like the Mepro 21 I have for it. I plan to keep that.

I do not believe they take standard AR mags. Look close at the mag release. The AUG uses one styled like the Ak hooks to the back of the mag, and the Ar is using one that hooks to the side of the mag

But I think the conversion kit to take AR mags is available from the manufacturer for a just 1200 bucks. It replaces the whole plastic rifle body.

Well, the Zombies held a successful election and petitioned me to get rid of the AUG. I sold it last week...

Little do they know I now have a SCAR coming in next week :clap:
